Quote "Shh, over here. I gots a favor to ask ye!"

Swabby Bilgebarrel is a Pirate Picnicker NPC found in the Avant Gardens Launch Area.

Swabby Bilgebarrel hangs out at the picnic area, which has been covered with Maelstrom fog that can only be cleared by defeating the Spider Queen. Talking to Swabby Bilgebarrel counts towards Making Friends achievement. Swabby Bilgebarrel is also a Model Vendor. His inventory consists of pirate-themed models, such as the Pirate Fort set, for Free-to-Play players who cannot access Gnarled Forest.

Swabby Bilgebarrel stashed his treasure but forgot where he left it. He gives players his lucky shovel and asks them to travel to five settled properties and dig up five treasures with the lucky shovel. When players return with the treasure, Swabby shares some of the loot to show his gratitude.

Beta Information

In alpha testing and early beta testing, Swabby Bilgebarrel was unnamed and identified as Pirate Picnicker; when he received his name, the title was taken away from him when the Crux Prime update occurred. At first, he was briefly named Keelhaul Carl in mid-beta testing. Files suggest that he may have been intended for Swifty McGurk's role.

Prior to the Nexus Jawbox update, Swabby Bilgebarrel wore tan pants. Since many other NPC clothes were turned white with this update, this is likely a glitch, but it was never corrected before LEGO Universe's closure was announced. Additionally, Swabby's CGI artwork seen on the Mission Tracker upon completing Bring Back the Booty still depicts him with tan pants.

Prior to the Power of the Nexus Force update, Swabby Bilgebarrel constantly argued with Hu Where over who is the better Monument Racer, the first in-game example of the rivalry between Pirates and Ninjas. Swabby mentioned a shortcut through a tunnel, hinting that the yellow path is the fastest route up the Monument.


  • Swabby Bilgebarrel claims that he gets spacesick on rocketships, which is why he sends players to travel to properties instead.
