Storm of All Seas, also commonly abbreviated as SOAS, is a Heavy weapon that is introduced in the 16.9.0 update. It could be obtained from the Community Van from September 25, 2020, to September 27, 2020. It was also obtainable by completing all the 6 Thanksgiving challenges from the Thanksgiving Season Battle Pass.
It is a large, pirate-themed exoskeleton that shoots two bombs from the pirate cannons at once, it is capable of being a 1-2 shot kill. It has high efficiency damage, an average fire rate of 64, a really low capacity of 4 and the lowest mobility of 30. It also has the ability to bleed enemy players.
It is aesthetically similar to the Demolition Exoskeleton, with the guns extending over the shoulders which unfortunately take up parts of the screen except it shoots two shots at once rather than four. In place of a remote controller, there is a ship’s helm which the player holds. The backpack itself is the back of a red chair that appears in the captain’s quarters on some pirate ships.
This pirate-themed exoskeleton shoots two bombs at once that are capable of one-shotting a fully armored player with high Modules. It has very low mobility but despite that, its performance makes up for that mobility. The bombs have area damage and as a matter of fact, the splash damage radius is huge. Moreover, it has a bleeding effect, which makes the affected opponent(s) temporarily lose extra health. Finally, the bombs of this weapon have looping shot and medium bullet travel time, so don't use this weapon for long range due to it's poor accuracy.
When reloading, the player opens the cannons and puts bombs inside them. This weapon currently does not have any delay mechanics, which can be used for Three Category Spam.
It deals very high damage, a decent fire rate and a low capacity of 4 and a very low mobility of 30. It makes up for the low mobility with a huge splash damage radius.

- Use this weapon to Rocket Jump (PG3D) but pre-jump before shoot down so you won't take damage.
- Do not attempt to Rocket Jump (PG3D) with this weapon without doing a usual jump before shooting, or you'll get a lot of damage.
- Always reload since it has 4 ammo.
- Try to guess the right timing while shooting to hit an opponent with 2 rockets instead of one, because it will deal higher damage.
