Pete: Whuh?... Cantankerous Tim! Yer back you two-faced scallywag!
Sly: Ate, matey...and, not to be rude, but let's talk treasure... Argh.
Pete: How about a round of vinegar talk first, you baboon-faced toilet!
Bentley: I've read about this Sly. It's customary for pirates to engage in insult competitions...just make sure you NEVER repeat anything that's already been said.

"The Talk of Pirates" is a mission for Sly in the Dead Men Tell No Tales episode of Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves.


Locate and talk to Black Spot Pete to learn where he hid Reme Lousteau's diving gear.

How to Complete

Talk to Black Spot Pete. He won't talk to Sly due to him being an outsider, but he will mention that he would only talk to his late friend Cantankerous Tim. After leaving from Pete, Sly learns from Bentley that Tim was mutinied by his lieutenants and they divided up the plunder between each other, including Tim's captain's outfit.

Lure Stone Jake under an anchor by whacking the palm trees. Drop the anchor on his head and claim the eyepatch.

Take out the second lieutenant's guards (Silent Obliteration and Shadow Power level 2 help here), then unscrew his peg leg and claim it.

Find Twitchy Ned in a crow's nest and chase him down. He'll hand over the hat without problems afterwards.

Assign the Pirate Disguise as a power-up, don it, and talk to Pete. You'll get into a duel of insults. Here's the catch: You can't repeat what was said before from either you or Pete; plus you're timed, so think fast. After six rounds, Pete will be convinced Sly is Cantankerous Tim and he'll reveal that the gear that he and Tim took was stolen by a man named Captain LeFwee. Once the conversation is over, it's job complete.


  • After you've got the full Cantankerous Tim disguise, if you head up to Black Spot Pete and you don't have your disguise on, it will result in a job fail.
