Among us is such a game that is easy to play but hard to master. Though it seems as if being a crewmate is way easier than being an imposter, you may be wrong. Both role-playings are equally challenging and intriguing. Whenever there is a newcomer in the game, it seems as if they have some common mistakes that can be easily neglected. So here are some tips and tricks to help to be less of a suspect and more of a friend.
1 Faking a task at the wrong place
If you are new in the game, and you are not sure where all the tasks are assigned. It is better not to fake a task. For example, if you are a new imposter and you are not sure which task to do and where to stand. It’s better to not stand in the wrong places and fake the task. The better way is to look at the top left corner of the screen. Even if you are an imposter, there are some fake tasks written in the top left corner, which you may follow. This will help you from being suspected as an imposter.
2 Venting at the wrong time
Another common mistake made by an imposter is venting at the wrong time. As the venting button is at the bottom right of the screen where there is also a kill button present. It may happen that while pressing the kill button there is a vent option and you vented by mistake. Another example of venting at the wrong time is when you are standing in the weapons and faking a download. While doing so, downloading and moving away it may happen you vented mistakenly and someone saw. Avoid that at all costs.
3 Screwing up a task
In Among Us, we always imagine or think that being an imposter is way harder than being a crewmate. Though all crewmates have to do is to complete the tasks assigned to each of them, every task is not easy. For example, the one in the reactor where you have to start the reactor. When the player goes to the reactor room and clicks on the button a screen appears where the right side of the screen is black and on the left-hand side there are nine buttons. The nine buttons display a pattern that the player must repeat in order to complete the task. It may happen while in the process of the task the imposter kills the crewmate or Someone reports a body, the crewmate has to redo the process. So it’s better to complete the task in one go rather than committing a mistake in the task.
4 Spending a lot of time on cameras
In the security room, when you have already completed your task as a crewmate. It may occur to you that cameras are the safest to keep a watch on people doing. That’s not the case. It may happen that when you are concentrating on the moment of every other member on the plane, an imposter can vent its way into the room and can kill you. So it’s safe not to spend a lot of time on cameras.
5 Telling everyone about your wrong position
All the crewmates can defend themselves by telling others what they did or where they went. Imposters who defend themselves can tell a bunch of lies. The most common is to tell people about a place where they were not present. Well, these techniques have their own pros and cons. For example, you may say you were in electric and the people in electric can claim they didn’t see you. All of your efforts can go downtown. So it’s better to avoid such topics.
Among Us is a game of trickery and deception. It is hard to play with both the character may it be an imposter or a crewmate. I hope the mistake mentioned above can help you improve your gameplay and help you rectify your mistake.
