Among Us | The Usual SUSpects; Crewmate Archives
With each passing day, Imposters are getting ever more comfortable in the Crewmate spacesuits. They’re starting to walk like us, talk like us, and think two steps ahead. With the increasing difficulty of finding the wolf in sheep’s clothing, it’s about time Crewmates arm themselves with more tricks of their own to cut out the cancer that’s killing the crew.
Sometimes the Imposters are shy and need a little push to commit murder, so it’s your job to give them that encouragement. One way of doing this is by leaving people together and checking up on them every now and again. Whether this is at the beginning of the game when you leave the last person behind at spawn, or quickly separate from a group of two strolling around. Then in the inevitable meetings, check to see if any members of the groups you saw together have passed. If they have passed, it is all too obvious who the Imposter is.
On the other side of the baiting spectrum, you can put yourself directly in the line of fire and take one for the team. You would do this by leaving together with someone after being seen by other people. You can even go as far as to mention in the chat that you’ll be following a particular color, and you make sure to cling to that color for dear life.
~>Keeping Track of Time:
Before you get into the game, you should always pay attention to the kill cooldown timer. When you keep track of how long the round has been going for, it becomes apparent how frequently kills are coming out, and if they are killed by both Imposters or a single Imposter. This information along with knowing which groups are together, who is vouching for each other, and even someone you’re following can all lead you to the Imposter. If an Imposter is idle and kills are coming out one at a time, you’ll know you are looking for someone playing the long con. This person is generally someone vouching for another crewmate.
~>Tracking Tasks Pt.2
The way you track tasks isn’t always the same. For some tasks, you pay attention to how long they’re doing it, and for others how close Crewmates are to the task. Keep track of the two-part tasks that are faked.
As part of alibis, people will have likely been doing tasks before the meeting was called. During the voting time, ask if anyone was interrupted from doing their task as the meeting was called. If so, pay attention to whether or not they go back to the task they said they were doing afterward. This will give you more information on either how likely it is that they’re an Imposter. It might not be the first thing they do, but if they never go to it, you’ve got your murderous alien.
What tricks do you use to sus out Imposters from among the pack? Have you ever caught an Imposter through task tracking yourself? Let me know in the comments below.
Among Us: Solo Imposter Guide!
With the rise of Among Us, players have been flocking the game and enjoying the rounds that they get to play as the imposter. Many players enjoy playing with multiple imposters to increase their odds of being the bad guy. I personally enjoy being one of 10 players in a lobby with the secret responsibility, with some pretty great methods of playing as the imposter! Today, I’m going to share my secrets to being a really great imposter!
1. Use The Edges Of The Maps
I personally enjoy playing on the spaceship map. I can tell you right now, I usually commit my murders in the far right or far left rooms of the ship. Players don’t usually go in there as they tend to flock the camera room and the electric room. This’ll give you a chance to grab a quick kill and run. Also, it gives a chance to catch more players if the bodies go undiscovered.
2. Support But Don’t Accuse
Early in matches there’ll be moments when players get suspicion on them. Don’t go blaming them. Just wait for someone to mention it and then go along with it. This could be one of the things that gets people’s attention on that particular person. It’s definitely going to increase your odds of getting further into matches.
3. Opposite End Emergencies
Using emergencies to lure players together is a great way to get some quick kills. Make sure you stand on the opposite side of the job and have someone you can quickly kill. Call the emergency, snag the kill, then run to “repair” the problem. It’s a super sneaky way to get people down and seem innocent. Also, if the problem isn’t repaired… you win!
4. Use Low Job Counts Effectively
When you’re in a lobby that requires fewer jobs, sometimes you can get away with saying you’ve completed all of your jobs. If you do that, you’re more in the clear and you’ll be watched less than the people who are actually doing work in the games. This’ll give you a little freedom to mess with the other players.
5. Self Report With Others Around
This one is super helpful to do with vented rooms. Get a quick kill and find a safe spot to pop up in. Once you’ve done that, make sure to follow the general direction someone’s going in towards your previous victim. Report the body and suddenly you’ll find yourself a trustworthy supporter. Every person on your side will make you a less likely target in the future rounds!
Aside from that, there’s not much more I can say besides just be careful how you approach different rooms! It’s always a big deal when you become the imposter so don’t squander your opportunities. The players that talk the most are usually the ones you should be targeting to kill or befriend. Let me know what tips you have for being the imposter down below! Also, let me know what color is DEFINITELY imposter for the next game! I’m voting Lime.
Getting Ahead as the Imposter in Among Us
Let’s be real with ourselves; in any game of Among Us, the Crewmates have a serious advantage. They have better numbers, an easier time planning and working together, and they seem to have eyes and ears everywhere! And that’s not by mistake; Among Us is designed to always have Imposters on their toes, making those times when you do pull it off all the sweeter. But all you aspiring killers and saboteurs out there deserve a break and the occasional helping hand, so let’s take a look at how you can be a better baddie in your next match with your friends.
First thing’s first; if you’re planning with a particularly skilled group that makes being the villain too dang hard, consider some of the options implemented into the game. First, there’s anonymous voting, which hides who votes for what, only showing the outcome. And second, there’s the hidden taskbar, where no one can tell how close everyone’s chores are to being completed. These two seemingly small alterations can make all the difference when facing off against a crowd of do-gooders. The less info they have, the easier time you’ll have doing your job.
Assuming that you’re planning an average game though, let’s consider some things you’ll always need to be keeping in mind. Above all else, look like you’re busy doing something. You can walk while sabotaging, after all, take advantage of that! If you’re standing still, make sure you’re in front of a task that needs doing. Hell, you can even pretend to complete a mandatory task and create a fail-state that way. Just make sure no one can question why you’re standing awkwardly in a hallway for too long.
Next, keep an eye on your opponents. Note where they’re moving, how many people go in any one direction. The fewer the individuals, the better chances you have of taking them down sneakily, assuming you aren’t too obvious about it. To that point, don’t beeline towards your targets. Meander around until you come across someone who appears exposed. Do your best to commit your murders as smoothly and naturally as possible. Killing someone as you pretend to be heading for a task, only to jump in a vent and fast travel elsewhere is a great feeling.
Finally, always - and I mean always - keep an eye on the cameras. There are a few scattered across the map (make sure to learn their locations quickly) and be on the look-out for if the red bulbs attached to them light up. That means someone’s watching, so you’ll have to be on your best behavior! It can be hard to notice it, so practice when you’re a Crewmate. Heck, you can even use that to your advantage, knowing when a victim may be waiting for you in the surveillance room.

Among Us | Advanced Assassination Tips; Imposter Edition
As everyone starts to get better and Crewmate IQ rapidly rises, the old Imposter playbook requires a coat of fresh paint. People start checking electrical frequently, and Crewmates have higher requirements for alibis. When it is finally your turn to dispatch Crewmates to the ghost club, it’s important to have more tricks to keep your identity a secret.
~>Vouching for Imposters Pt.2:
In the original Imposter guide, I mentioned that you should not be afraid to vouch for Imposters if you were together, but that really only lasts one round. As your alibis may get shakier, you’ll need something to clear you or your other Imposter that bypasses rounds and that is where vouching for your Imposter teammate’s visual tasks if they are on. Visual tasks generally throw a wrench in Imposter’s plans when they want to shirk suspicion because it clears the possibility of someone being the Imposter which narrows in the search of you. In cases like these, you need to add you and/or your partner to that list of clear people. This way, your alibis won’t be scrutinized as closely as those who aren’t “cleared” by visual tasks. Vouching for other imposters by saying you saw them medbay scan is a good example of this.
~>Working around Confirm Ejects:
Confirm ejects are a massive disadvantage to Imposters for quite a few reasons. The most glaring reason is that instead of killing Crewmates off subtly, the Crewmates are immediately made aware of mistakes they’ve made in the voting period. This works against you especially if you’ve sussed someone, or won a 50/50 vote.
Confirm Ejects (On):
If you’re on your way out of the airlock as an Imposter, you can still snag yourself one more indirect kill. If it is unavoidable that you are getting voted off, drag someone down with you. This would happen by “admitting” that an innocent person is the other imposter before you go.
Confirm Ejects (Off):
If that pesky feature of confirming ejects is off, you have a lot more wiggle room when it comes to accusing people. Mind games become a lot more effective when they’re never sure if their decisions were correct. 50-50 votes become a lot more favorable to Imposters when you confirm eject is off. One way to go about it is using the good ole “if not them vote me next” because they will never know if it was them anyway. ONLY use this when confirm ejects are off or you’re 1-2 kills off of winning. When confirm eject is off, insist that there’s still more than one Imposter if you’re the first one voted off and throw sus on someone with questionable alibi skills.
Not every Imposter game has to be Idling as an Imposter can work in your favor. Not necessarily AFKing, but trailing someone without killing people. Not necessarily for the whole game, but for a good while. Planting seeds of trust in people in this manner can set you up for all sorts of plays later on. I’ve personally won quite a few games doing this because until you actually go unaccounted for, you’re basically innocent. The ability to be innocent or guilty at will can turn the tables, especially on Mira HQ where you are quite limited as an Imposter.
What are some unusual strategies that you use as an Imposter? Has anyone done any of the above tactics to you as an Imposter? Let me know in the comments below.
How to Take Advantage of Anonymous Voting in Among Us
With a new update patched in Among Us, players will have the option to make all voting anonymous during the game. In other words, players will never be able to tell who is voting for whom, only being told an outcome after the fact. This is a huge change to the usual formula and can make for some really tense and exciting games, but you’ll want to learn how to better play around this new feature if you want to win. Below, I’ll discuss some of the ways you can improve your lying and scheming skills to take down anyone who might question your motives.
In a standard game of Among Us, you should always be keeping a mental tally of how folks are voting on a given issue. Not just those who vote against you, but those who appear to be voting alongside you. Taking advantage of this info can give you an analytical edge against the competition, giving you a gist of the ways players vote on average or if people are taking wildly different stances round to round. The more erratic a voting pattern, the more likely something is suss, regardless of what the player is saying.
Now, however, you can manipulate and use that information all the more. For example, let’s say you’re a Civilian in a hidden voting game. Start asking the other players how they intend to vote, jotting down notes as you do. If the results of that vote don’t reflect the promises that other players made, you not only know that someone lied, but you have a list of people who could be said liar, making the info all the easier to consider.
On the other end of things, as the Imposter, it’s now way easier to change people’s impressions of the situation. A great way to combat the above-mentioned strategy is to suggest players don’t reveal their votes so as to not give the Imposter too much info. It is true that, by announcing intentions, the Imposter can start targeting those who are rallying the rest or those who fit the narrative of someone else being said traitor. Another thing you can do is consistently announce your votes honestly, attempting to prove your loyalty to the group and cause. The more open and honest you are with how you vote, the more likely people will be willing to take your side.
Most importantly, no matter what side you’re on, you’ll want to be writing as much info down as possible. I know I’ve been reiterating this throughout my writing above, but taking notes is crucial in this mode. The less info you are given openly, the more likely you’ll need to write down whatever knowledge you have to make up the difference. Taking the time to remind yourself of something a vote or two later can save your life.
How have you been enjoying the anonymous voting games? What strategies have you been using? Let me know your thoughts down below!
How to Change Your Among Us Playstyle Post-Mortem
Among Us has become an increasingly popular game, and one that has captured the devious minds of many a gamer, but there’s one element that’s stood out to many as lackluster; what you do after death. Sure, while you’re alive, you get to wander the ship, spy on other players, do tasks, and accuse each other of villainy. Once you are killed or ejected, however, there’s little else to do but finish your tasks and watch everyone else have fun. It’s an issue that the developers have come to recognize and are looking to resolve. And though we don’t know when such changes might make an appearance in the game, it’s best to be prepared for what to expect from the future of Among Us so that you can play as optimally as possible. Let’s take a look at what InnerSloth is intending and how you can plan for it.
The word going around the internet is that ghosts could act as “Guardian Angels” down the road, suggesting that they could save living players from sabotages or even death. What form this will take is unknown, but it’s heavily implied that Imposters will have to be ever on their toes if they want to thwart the Civilians.
A change like this can lead to a heavy shift in meta. For one thing, if I, the Imposter, go to kill someone and a Guardian Angel stops me, that can lead to me unintentionally outing myself to a living player. Sure, that player likely won’t be informed that I tried to kill them, but my movements will almost assuredly reflect that. This means that, as the killers, you’ll want to play your movements so that, if something goes wrong, you can continue about your business without appearing suss.
Another thing to consider is how to play out your sabotages. It can already be difficult balancing when to kill someone vs. when to set off the oxygen alarm, as a found body could cancel the need to repair the latter. But if ghosts can slow down or even cancel these sabotages altogether, it can lead to so ticky situations for you. In all likelihood, I imagine that Guardian Angels will only be able to delay the inevitable, meaning your attacks on the ship will still have weight and meaning, but you’ll likely want to spread your actions across the ship. It’ll be a lot harder for a Guardian to both force open a closed door on one end of the ship and help delay the destruction of a system on the other side of the ship.
Most interestingly, it’s suggested that the team is heavily working on something to make the first player who is killed have something more to do, potentially something special. We’ve all been in a situation where you’re the first Civilian offed and you have nothing to do for the rest of the match. It kinda sucks and leaves you twiddling your thumbs for a little too long. We’re not sure what form that will take quite yet, but something to consider moving forward will be how to choose your first victim. If someone is going to be getting special privileges, you won’t want to allow just anyone to take advantage of those tools. Selecting who you kill first will be all the more important and not just down to whoever is the most vulnerable in a given scenario.
What are you anticipating the new Guardian Angel mechanic will include? Let me know your thoughts and strategies below!

An Among Us game with popular mooters...
Not just mooters who have a crazy amount of followers, but people who also show up on moot quite often I guess?
But like... if y’all are down I’m down :D
We somehow gotta get this recorded...
Among Us | Task Tier List (Polus)
Polus, the prime hunting ground for Imposters everywhere. As the biggest map of the three, it’s no surprise that tasks lurk in every corner. Polus has a whopping 8 long tasks, the greatest number of Long Tasks to date. They even made it their mission to make sure all the worst tasks were also a part of this already helpless map for crewmates. In this article, however, we’re going to take a look at the tasks that only call Polus their home and rate them based on difficulty.
There’s the slightest need for hand-eye coordination when filling the canisters, but you can’t exactly say it’s hard.
Simple task. You become a DJ for 5 seconds, and now somehow you’ve nurtured a tree. Never had trouble out of this task, which is saying a lot in Among Us, ngl.

Scan Boarding Pass
If this isn’t the jankiest, clunky, rage-click-inducing task, I don’t know what is. Be honest, how many times do you have to click that arrow before the card decides it wants to show itself? And how many clicks does it take to turn the card around? Maybe I’m impatient, but surely it shouldn’t take as long as it does. Biases aside, once you finally get the card to show itself and turn around, it’s fairly easy.
Fix Weather Node
No, not like this. Please don’t make me do this again, not out here in the open all vulnerable and exposed. This task is all the anxiety from playing as a crewmate condensed into a single entity. How many times have you died while doing this thing? How many times have you had to redo it after going the wrong way because you literally can’t see under your finger? Truly one of those nightmare tasks, only beaten by the dreaded Keypad task.
Rating: Disgustingly Hard
Another one of those janky tasks that don’t move as smoothly as it shoots. That said, there isn’t any difficulty doing it, just a disgustingly slow task to manage. An imposter can kill you three times over before you finish it, not to mention you have three other parts of it to finish.
Easy task, just a long windup. It’s just like divert power to an extent. Definitely among the easiest tasks to complete, you just have to remember to turn back on your wifi.
Rating: Relatively Easy
Replace Water Jug
This task is just refueling engines with a new skin, only this skin is much worse. That said, the position it puts you in as a crewmate is by far one of the worst places by far to get murdered on the map, besides specimen maybe. By the time they find your body, you’ll be alumni of the ghost club. The back and forth between the two parts of the task is quite annoying and takes about ten seconds each, but there’s no difficulty involved in the task itself.
Rating: I want to say hard, but it really isn’t so… Reasonable
Do you hate the Node (Maze) task as much as I do? How many times have you personally gotten killed while doing it yourself? Let me know your least favorite task in the comments below.
We need some talk guys!
Guys, could you please stop bombarding the posts with Discord ads and begging for followers? We can do better than this!!
How about we talk about something more productive, such as useful tips, game experience, life, etc.?
Moot is one of my favorite gaming community and I just feel heartbroken when I see it being terrorized with so many Discord recruitments...
Sorry if my post offended you. No offense. I was just trying to make a point here.
Promise me you'll play Among Us with me once you see me in the eyes.
You can't deny me, admit it and it will all be yours...
Among Us | Task Tier List (The Skeld)
It happens when you’re first loaded up on the spaceship and find yourself without the overwhelming urge to murder everyone on the ship, the long list of responsibilities you have to complete in order to pull your weight. These tasks range from idle, to full-on minigame and many games have hinged on how easy or hard your particular tasks are. Surely there are many biases about which task is the most stifling to solve, but I am going to take a crack at it and rank them from the easiest to migraine-inducing ones on the Skeld.
So you understand the reasoning behind the task rankings, the difficulty of the task to me is determined by how much interaction the task takes, how long the task takes, and if the task will reset if you mess up.
Chart Course is definitely one of the easier tasks on the Skeld. Even if you only have two brain cells left after all the migraines that public games induce, you’ll still be able to finish this task within a few seconds.
Rating: Relatively Easy
This task is actually a newbie crusher, ngl. Of course, I am not talking to you Dead by Daylight players who do skill checks everyday. Because you have to start over if you get it wrong, and it’s in electrical which instantly gives you anxiety, further piling onto the difficulty it is quite hard.
Align Engine Output
Align Engine Output is one of the tasks made by the more lenient Among Us developers. I’ve literally never failed or stuttered this task, so I would say it is relatively easy. Unless you have trouble with straight lines, this is a walk in the park.
Rating: Relatively Easy
Clean O2 Filter
The Clean O2 Filter is in somewhat of a limbo as far as a rating goes. It’s definitely pretty annoying and time-consuming to do, but definitely not difficult.
The Divert Power task is definitely the task you want if you ever are forced to go into electrical. With how simple it is, can it even be considered a task? Definitely among the top the easiest tasks in the game. It can take the title of the easiest task without much of a fight.
Rating: Piece of Cake
Stabilize Steering is another quite easy task. It takes all of two seconds to align the crosshairs, and there’s no penalty for failing. All in all, another walk in the park.
Rating: Piece of Cake
You see, I have mixed feelings about the Unlock Manifolds task. On one side, if you take your time and read, as you should, this is a very easy task. Unfortunately, patience is the last thing most Among Us players have so this task gets fumbled quite often.
I know, I know. Satan himself in the form of a task for some, but once you get the hang of it Card Swipe becomes second nature. Just get the tempo right and you won’t be so frustrated in the future. Overall, it is a reasonable task with a large threshold for error, so I’ll rate it accordingly.
This is one of the few tasks that have quite a bit of inconsistency in the difficulty of it. If you are colorblind, this is literally the hardest task. For all the normies, this isn’t too hard and there’s no penalty for failure.
Inspect the Sample
In terms of difficulty, this is quite easy. Just pick the one that looks different; even colorblindness can’t stop you. There are two things about the task that make it slightly annoying, however. If by some fat-finger or a sharp drop in IQ you mess it up, you have to start all over again and it takes quite a long time.
Pretty straight-forward. You press a button until it is full, then you run back-and-forth like an ant that’s found food while filling up the engine. All in all, it’s a very easy task.
Rating: Relatively Easy
Start Reactor (Simon Says Keypad)
Hands down the most cancer task to ever exist in Among Us. Not only is this a time-consuming task, but it is able to reset if you get it wrong. If ever there was a threat of being killed while doing a task, it would definitely be this one. If you’re really bad, you might watch your entire childhood flash before you eyes without ever finishing the task. Whichever sadist dev created this task probably gets his kicks from watching people struggle to complete this task. Definitely a task you would want to do last.
Rating: Disgustingly Hard
As far as long tasks go, it doesn’t really get easier than this. You simply stand there and wait for the task to do itself. This is a win in my eyes, but that also means you can’t speed up this task in any way.
Rating: Piece of Cake
~>Visual Tasks (Long)
All memes aside, Medbay Scan as a task is a braindead task. You click one button and you wait, and you’re done.
Rating: Piece of Cake
On the long road of proving your innocence, you’ll find yourself fending off asteroids in weapons for either 10 seconds, or an eternity. This task is definitely one that can drag out for a long time if you are bad at clicking on stuff. The silver lining of this task is that they don’t make you start over if you miss an asteroid. I bet if the Keypad dev got his hand on this, it would be a lot less enjoyable of a task.
Empty Chut (O2)
Empty Chute or Garbage or whatever you want to call it is an easy task that gets dragged out longer than necessary. Like, I understand this is space but it does not take that long to drop out of the ship. That said, it isn’t hard itself so it ranks pretty low on the difficulty scale. For the impatient player, however, this is quite the annoying task if you prematurely let go of the lever.
Rating: Relatively Easy
~>Visual Tasks (Short)
Prime Shields is one of the tasks you can decide how fast you finish, and there’s no threshold for failure. Considering how fast it can be completed and no fear of failure, this ranks among the easiest Among Us tasks.
Rating: Piece of Cake
