The popular game Among Us has taken the world by storm and I, for one am still playing the game every night with my friends and strangers online. I even made new friends! Yay me!
But we’re not here to talk about me, let’s talk about the game itself. So if you’re new to the game, welcome, this article is made specially for you. So you’d probably already know that in the game, you will either be assign as Crewmates or The Imposter at random when the round starts. If you wanna win as The Imposter, you can read my previous post here. But today, I’m gonna share some tips and tricks to help you win as crewmates. Let’s go.
Travel In Groups
This would be an obvious thing to do cause the imposter will not kill if there are more than 1 crewmate in the room. But make sure there’s 4 or 5 of you as there might be 2 or 3 imposters in the group. Also make sure to not gather together and stand on top of one another cause the imposter will most likely use the Crowd Kill trick, making it hard to determine who is the imposter.
Memorise Your Tasks
This might help you detect the imposter as there will be 1 or 2 tasks that all crewmates will have which are the Insert Keys or Swipe Card on Polus. This means if the player doesn’t have a common task listed, no other Crewmates have it either. If you notice someone performing that task, chances are, they are an imposter so be ready to hit that Emergency Meeting button.
Task Bar Filling Up
Imposters are given fake tasks to complete to make them look like they are one of you but try to keep a close eye on anyone completing a task because once you complete a task, the task bar should fill up so if you see anyone completing a task but the task bar stays the same, Run.
The Invisible Crewmate
Here’s a little bit of cheat for you. Become invisible and hide behind the reactor or anything large enough for you to not be seen. But first, you’ll need make your name invisible. This can only be done on mobile devices, sorry PC players!
- Copy the blank space between the quotation marks “ㅤ”
- Select the name field in Local or Online
- Tap the field to get the option to “Paste”
- Paste the above Unicode character. Note: Do not paste the quotation marks
After you’re invisible, hide somewhere and wait for the imposter to make a move. This would mean you’ll have to watch a fellow crewmate die but at least you’ll catch the imposter.
