Among Us is a game that can only be won with intelligence. If you play anyway and relying on luck, you will lose! That's why we've separated strategies for you to play as a crew member and as an imposter. See below everything you need to do to be the best player in this detective game!
Strategies to be a successful imposter
Your mission is to send crew members off the ship. Doing this might seem simple, but it's not, as you'll be alone against the other players. So you must be smart and have 3 very efficient attitudes to avoid being discovered and still eliminate everyone from the game.
1. Mingle with the crew
Walking alone if you're an imposter isn't smart. Ideally, blend in with the crew and pretend you're doing the tasks they're supposed to do. Go to the engine room, but only if you are accompanied. Approach the computers and try to walk in packs. One day you will have the opportunity to catch someone alone.
2. Participate in discussions
Who shuts up, consents, right? So don't be quiet when you find a body and start arguing about who's responsible. On the other hand, don't try to blame anyone. Probably the person has an alibi, having someone who can defend them.
What to do then? Make questions. Question who was in that area. Try to take the focus off you. Finally, always vote for whoever is the most suspicious, in case you are not the one who is accusing.
3. Close the doors and sabotage everything you can
Beginner players don't know, but you can close the doors before killing someone. This is essential, as it gives you time to commit your terrible deeds without being seen, whether sabotaging or eliminating a player. Turning off the lights is also useful, especially if there are few crew members left to assassinate.
And, of course, sabotage everything you can to sabotage. This will force the crew to walk around like silly cockroaches to repair what you've damaged. It's an opportunity to meet someone off guard along the way.
4. Don't be seen
Even though it's obvious, not every imposter does this. And you have many ways to be almost invisible in Among Us. The first and most obvious is to use the ventilation system, but not very often. If you are caught entering this hideout, you can be sure that you will be reported.
Another point is to check if anyone is using the cameras. All rooms have cameras, and if someone is using one of them to monitor movement, they may see you committing a crime. It can easily tell if someone is using the camera: it is enough that a crew member is glowing, with a red color.
5. Let the novice crew survive
Among Us is a solitaire game. And that includes analyzing your opponents, especially if they are crew members. You can detect who is starting to play and who is already smarter. The smartest ones you eliminate first, as fast as you can. Saving newbies for last is ideal, as they will be more stressed and will easily become prey.
Strategies to be a good crew member
It is usually easier to play as a crew member, as you are not alone. Don't be fooled though, as the imposter and even a crewmate can eject you from the ship. Below you will find some important tips to be the perfect crew member.
1. Never walk alone
The basics of the basics. Don't walk alone for two reasons: you could get killed, or someone could report you simply because they think you're the imposter. So the best way to protect yourself is to walk in a group!
2. Stay away from the ventilation system
The ventilation system is great for anyone who is an imposter and that player only. Crew members cannot enter this system, so there is no point in being close to them. You may end up being mistaken for the villain unintentionally if you stand next to the vents.
It's worth keeping an eye out just because, as we said, imposters can use the system at will. Watching them can give you the opportunity to find the criminal.
3. Read others' behaviors
Have an analytical profile and identify the behaviors of others. Imposters will almost always run away from sabotaged areas rather than heading towards them. This already gives strong indications of who the enemy is.
Another behavior that deserves attention: imposters try to swipe the card in a door, pretending to be crew. This is one of the best ways to spot an imposter.
4. Complete the tasks
Crew members have tasks and they must be fulfilled. Going around, wandering around in search of the imposter is dishonest and represents a lack of teamwork. So be aware of what you have to do, mainly because it can help to speed up the end of the game and guarantee your victory.
5. Avoid pressing the red button by accident
The red button should only be used when something actually happens: a body discovered, sabotage done. Otherwise, pushing the button is bullshit. Squeezing for nothing can have the opposite effect, causing you to be eliminated for distrusting your attitude.
