How to switch POVs in Skull and Bones

Switching between first and third person in Skull and Bones is as easy as pressing a button. By default, switching POV is mapped to down on the D-pad. On keyboard and mouse, it’s mapped to 3 by default.

The ability to switch between third and first person in Skull and Bones is tied to the action wheel. This is brought up by pressing square or X on controller or left control on keyboard and mouse. Up, down, left, and right on the D-pad and 1, 2, 3, and 4 on keyboard and mouse are the quick actions you can use without pulling up your action wheel every time.

If you don’t like the default action wheel presets, then you can open and edit it. In fact, I recommend editing the action wheel so that the ability to toggle the rear camera is 2 or right on the D-pad instead of Cooked Food. This comes in handy during fights.

I like the first person to third person swap being 4 or down on the D-pad, but if you don’t, you can change it to something else. You can remap the action wheel as many times as you’d like, and there are three action wheels in total, which gives you even more options.

And that is how you sail the seas in first person and third person. There are benefits to playing the game in both POVs. I love the immersion you get in first person, but it’s very difficult to play combat in anything but third person. Whatever you pick, be on your way to farming Acacia.
