Among Us | How to Get Away with Murder; Imposter Edition

POV: The 5-second countdown timer is ticking, the red guy tells you to shush, and you see your name painted a menacing crimson. It’s happening, you’re the imposter. Your only mission is to gain everyone’s trust only to stab them in the back and eliminate all the crewmembers, but how do you do it? There are 8 of them and one of you, and one wrong answer will leave you free-flying through the vacuum of space. How do you properly play the role of the imposter? We’ll cover some basic tips that are important to know in order to effectively play the imposter and come out victorious.
 
Tasks:
As an imposter, the task meter is your timer; you have until it is full to kill everyone. Assuming you make it until the point where you have to take the task meter into account, there are some things to keep in mind. Since you cannot do tasks as an imposter, faking tasks is part of your plight to escape suspicion.
 
>Effectively faking tasks
Faking tasks is an art, not a science. To fake a task means to stand in front of a task like you would if you were actually doing it, but obviously not completing the task. The best way to go about this is to go to where there are exclamation marks on your map and stand in front of that task, then do not move until the task meter moves. People will generally observe the task meter as you are doing a task when they are watching you fake tasks.
 
On the same note, if visual tasks are enabled, meaning tasks other people can confirm you are doing, do not fake any visual tasks like garbage or Medbay scans.
 
 
Venting
Vents are like a security camera for imposters, and also a way to reposition yourself for or after a kill. But you can’t just hop in vents willy nilly at any odd moment. People can see you going into and leaving vents, and smarter crewmates will track where they’ve seen you. So if you are in generator and then you’re all of a sudden in navigation with no probable explanation, you’ll be butchered in the voting process.
 
 
~When you should vent and when you shouldn’t
 
 
>You should vent when:
You’ve killed someone in a one-way passage place, meaning you can only leave through the way you came in. If you are unlucky enough to walk out of there and someone walks in, you’re toast.
 
>When you want to sneak up on someone who has been running from you, or someone that is isolated.
 
>When you want to be in two places at once. For instance, if you are alone in oxygen, but you want to kill someone in comms while still keeping your alibi in oxygen. You would vent there, kill them, then vent back and your alibi is in place as long as someone saw you go into oxygen, but never saw you come out.
 
 
~Sabotage
As a unique attribute gifted to the killer, the ability to Sabotage can be your greatest strategic weapon to use against coordinated crewmates. Whether it is to split them apart, deny information, or to scramble their formation, sabotaging has a way of helping you with that.
 
When the game gets to the point of everyone following each other to do tasks, sabotaging the Seismic stabilizers is a sure-fire way to split people up, but it is very choreographed so be careful with your kills that way.
 
Sabotaging the lights when everyone is in an open space is a great way to kill someone openly. This would generally apply when everyone is kind of spread out, but still in the same general area.
 
Sabotaging doors when people walk through them to isolate or separate them from the group will also set you up for stealthy kills or the perfect framing of someone else.
 
 
~Killing
Part of being an imposter, probably the most important part, is killing crewmates. It’s rather simple to kill people, the hard part is getting away with it.
 
>Setting up the perfect murder
The perfect murder consists of a few things, time, place, and a seemingly rock-solid alibi. You want your victim to be isolated and preferably discovered at the latest time possible. If everyone is going right side and you see someone going left, vent over or stealthily follow the person. If you are seen following the person, however, you will be the first voted off.
 
You can similarly use two people together to your advantage. When they inevitably separate, you vent in and kill one and vent out. It is a great way to frame someone and if your team is paying attention, they may do all the work for you without you having to incite anything.
 
>Killing in conjunction with your sabotage
You don’t always have to chase your kills, sometimes they will just come to you. Sabotaging is a great way to have your prey walk right into your mouth without much effort. When you sabotage something, someone will have to fix it. So if you wait at the places you sabotaged, someone will show up eventually. You should be careful though because if more than one person comes, you will be up for suspicion for even being there, let alone not fixing what you sabotaged.
 
Here are some things to note when killing people:
 
>Don’t kill someone you were the last one spotted with.
 
>Don't kill people in hallways, especially in front of cameras. The body will be found quite fast there.
 
> If you kill someone in a closed room, vent out, but do so to a close place so you can account for how you got there.
 
>Killing people in harder to access places or infrequently visited places are optimal. This includes spawn, decontamination, storage, and fuel.
 
>When someone asks you where you were, never say you were in medbay doing a scan. It is just a meme now that will get you instantly voted off. There is an exception if someone is there to vouch for you though.
 
~Voting/Vouching
The voting process is where the real mind games start, and you have to be prepared to vow your innocence. This doesn’t mean that you keep insisting you are innocent, but that others insist that you are. Voting phase deception is a whole other conversation and you have to set yourself up for that beforehand as well. I will just say these two things:
 
>Don’t be afraid to vouch for a fellow imposter if you guys have been together for a while and the kill is quite old
 
>Don’t be afraid to frame an innocent crewmate if they’ve done something sketchy that is hard to explain
 
I've written a bit more in-depth about setting up this sort of thing here: https://moot.us/lounges/379/boards/1784/posts/4696620/among-us-feigning-innocence-imposter-edition
 
Hopefully, with this, you’ll slip under many more radars and bring back the win for the imposter team. Let me know what sort of strategies have worked out for you when you had the chance to be an imposter. Happy homicide, my imposter students.

Among Us | Faking Innocence; Imposter Edition

To do your duties as an imposter requires you to camouflage amongst the ranks of the crewmates, which requires a certain level of trust. There will always be someone that is suspicious of you, and this is to be expected. Use that suspicion to your advantage. You have to position yourself that beyond the shadow of a doubt, you are innocent and there are many ways of going about this.
 
 
Faking Tasks:
There is much more to faking tasks than what meets the eye. In my initial imposter guide, I gave the basics to faking tasks, which is sitting in front of a task until the task meter moves. It’s effective, but not versatile.
 
https://moot.us/lounges/379/boards/1784/posts/4690545/among-us-how-to-get-away-with-murder-imposter-edition
 
This next iteration of faking tasks is faking tasks that your victim has done. Say, for instance, if two bodies are dead and they discover the one that you did not kill, you can pretend that you did the task the person you killed did.
 
So if you sabotage oxygen, and someone does one oxygen and your victim did another, now you did that oxygen and they cannot testify against it because oxygen was INDEED done, just not by you but no one needs to know that. This can work with things like the seismic stabilizer, lights, and anything else you can sabotage really.
 
 
 
~Grooming a Scapegoat/Diehard:
 
In order to stay in the clear for as long as possible, you are going to have to have someone to vouch for you. But this sort of loyal crewmate doesn’t come easy, you have to groom them to let their guard down to you. This means not killing them in even the most optimal of places, all just to win their trust. Spending every second of when your kill cooldown is ticking with them as your alibi, and checking in on them every now and then when you are out murdering other crewmates. Having this sort of diehard supporter during the voting phase is enough to turn the tides, and even to convince others with their vouching of your innocence.
 
Similar to grooming a diehard, you can also groom a scapegoat for your crimes. If someone you know isn’t an imposter is under heavy suspicion, create chaos around that person, but don’t kill them. This means kill people that come into contact with that person, or simply avoid killing them to take away focus from yourself and other imposters.
 
 
Retreating to Advance:
Since you cannot communicate with your fellow imposters directly, there will be times when your interests clash and you will have to make a tough decision. Sometimes your fellow imposters will have killed someone beyond the shadow of a doubt, and they are already on their way out of the air duct. When this happens, throw them under the bus, do not defend them. Don’t implicate yourself to save a lost cause, because that will only put you at jeopardy. If you take the initiative to do this, you will further increase your credibility with the other crewmates and it will further speak of your “innocence” later on.
 
If you can avoid it, however, try not to give your other imposters the boot too early into the game or things will get very hard for you as a sole imposter. TL:DR; don’t stick your neck out for other imposters.
 
 
These tips should give you another layer to add to your crewmate facade when you do happen upon the role of an imposter. Gaining the trust of one or more crewmates is necessary for your survival, as you can’t do nearly as much when you’re a dead imposter. In games where you have a longer kill cooldown, the game will play slower and trust becomes increasingly more important the longer the game plays out. What odd ways have you gained someone’s trust in the past as an imposter? Share your clutch countermeasures in the comments below.
 
Merry murdering my Imposter disciples.

GOTY for Among Us

Okay, now we gotta admit that Among Us was the ultimate winner for fall 2020. I hope they win at least some of the GOTY before 2077 arrives. Fall Guys was indeed a laugh bomb for many populations in the world too, so I hope they would also win at least one or two bid awards. Both were really soothing, fun jelly bean games that served as amazing stress relievers in this difficult time for everyone.
 
Any thoughts on this?
