- For the Captain navy rank, see navy.
Captain is the highest rank a player can have in a crew. Captains generally have either started the crew or were a former officer promoted by the previous captain. On doubloon oceans, captains must also have purchased the appropriate badge. Captains have the power to demote and promote anyone in autocratic crews, change the crew articles, and assign titles to anyone, including themselves. Depending on a crew's booty shares, captains may receive a different share than those of other ranks during booty division.
It is considered difficult to be captain of a crew and takes very hard work and dedication.
