With the rapid explosion of players on Among Us, there are hundreds of thousands of new players. If you want to learn how to play, this guide will teach you the basics and help you get started.
Even though Among Us has been out for some time, it apparently exploded in popularity overnight. More recently, the number of players in Among Us has even reached a higher peak than PUBG momentarily. With the arrival of all these new players in the game, it might be helpful to have a basic guide on how to play and answers to some of the questions that many new players are asking themselves.
Among us, how to play the game?
The basic overview of Among Us is simple. A crew of 4 to 10 players (usually 10) is in one place to do tasks while 1 to 3 impostors (usually 2) do everything they can to sabotage their efforts and kill them all.
The game ends in four ways.
1. All impostors are dead. (Crew Win)
2. All tasks are complete. (Crew Win)
3. There are an equal number of crews and impostors. (Win Impostor)
4. The crew failed to stop a catastrophic sabotage (Impostor Win)
Games may be longer or shorter depending on the number of players, their skills and the options selected by the playing group. When a game starts, you will be assigned a role, whether as a crew or impostor, and your goals and how you reach them will change depending on that.For this purpose, the crew and impostor sections will be separated.
Among us, I was assigned to a crew, what should I do?
Congratulations, you are a member of the team of us. This means that you are there to help repair this ship/station/colony. For each game as a crew member, you will be assigned tasks in your to-do list. You can locate where to do these tasks on the map. Just go to each place and finish the job. Some jobs will be more difficult than others, but you will eventually understand them. Don’t be afraid to ask your colleagues how to do some of your tasks if necessary, it’s all part of on-the-job learning.
Of course, there may be impostors among us, so keep an eye on suspicious activity. Impostors don’t do tasks, but they could pretend. You can keep an eye on the to-do list to track every task that is completed, and if you think you are seeing something suspicious, you can always call a meeting using the button on the table.
But most of the time, you may not see anything suspicious.
If you find yourself alone with an impostor, you could become a ghost. Just because you’re dead doesn’t mean your job is done, so make sure you do your homework and rely on your teammates to solve your death.
Among us, I have been appointed Impostor, what should I do?
Congratulations, you can sabotage the crew among us. This means that you will be responsible for throwing a key in their operations and making sure that this job is anything but business as usual.
On your screen you’ll see a list of tasks and their location on the map, but these are just fake suggestions and not your actual goal. Instead, you will want to try to find a way to isolate the crew members and kill them whenever you can. Of course, it won’t be easy and you’ll have to be sneaky.
Fortunately, there are a few crawl spaces to use, usually covered by ventilation coatings. You will want to use your mobility to your advantage by choosing the crew one by one.
But there are also other things you can do. If you open your sabotage card, you’ll see that there are a lot of things you can do. You can lock the doors to keep the crew stuck, or break the lights and limit their vision.
You can also sabotage their communications, preventing them from seeing their tasks. In addition, you can sabotage reactors, oxygen or other vital equipment that will kill everyone unless they are repaired.
Among us, a meeting has been convened, what should I do?
Meetings are the only times when players need to talk to each other, making it an important part of Among Us. Meetings are called when a body is reported or when someone presses the emergency meeting button.
If you are the crew, take this opportunity to share information and interview suspects. If you are an impostor, take advantage of this time to dispel suspicions and sow chaos.
At each meeting, players can vote to run a person, and if someone has the most votes, he will be thrown out of a spaceship/in a volcano.
If you don’t want to vote for someone, you can also vote to jump down. Use meeting time wisely, as communication will be vital to help the crew coordinate, and just as important for impostors to disrupt.
Among us, additional advice
A few last words about playing among us. If you’re playing vocal mode, be sure to limit your discussion to when everyone is at the meeting and all participants in your Game Includes participate in the same voice chat.
If you are a crew member, try to provide as much information as possible at meetings. If you are an impostor, don’t be afraid to tell wild lies or throw someone else under the bus.
Don’t get mad at other players just because they made a mistake, and don’t be afraid to call someone for making the game a negative experience. It’s just a game, and no one needs to get angry just because he lost.
Plus, just because you’re a ghost doesn’t mean you’re done. If you are a crew, you still have tasks, and if you are impostor, you can focus on sabotage the remaining crew.
And finally, discuss with your gaming group what you do or don’t want outside the game. Some groups end up grouping a number of them together, which can make the game unsymthred for impostors. If you’re not having fun, talk to the players and ask them to make a conscious effort to make the us fun for everyone.
