The game Among Us is about killing or being killed by your mates. In contrast to the torment of a successful metaphorical backstab, the discomfort of a broken jaw, though, pales.
If you’re curious how to succeed as the Imposter, look no further. LadBible shared some of the very sneakiest tactics to use in your search for victory. Remember: There is only one ship that counts in the game, and it’s not friendship.
Sabotage to make friends
In actual life, sabotaging a nuclear reactor to make friends is not a good idea. But it does work in Among Us.
You might think that sabotaging is a perfect way to destroy the whole team, but realistically, it only works quite occasionally. Instead, sabotaging everything is much more effective so that people will see you repairing it.
This is particularly critical for the reactor and oxygen system since it needs to be fixed by two crewmates (or one crewmate and one cunning impostor). To create bonds with innocent players, use sabotage to ensure they know that you were there to support.
Not only can you find the majority of the crew trustworthy and supportive, but you may also create relationships with particular crewmates while building a good alibi that takes us to our next dastardly point.
Create a Kill, Create a Mate
The force of friendship is ridiculously powerful in Among Us, like a TV show from the 1990s. Your number one goal should be getting to another player after killing somebody. If you found a dead body, don’t just say who you were with. Mention if you don’t believe it was the other party when you were with them. Once you trick them, the unsuspecting alibi would be far more apt to back you up without a second thought. A two-way alibi would trust the rest of the crew even better than an ambiguous position argument, even though it’s far from the body.
Truly feeling devious? Mention who in your party you didn’t see.
Part of the Team, Part of the Ship: Fit In
Crewmates should think you’re one of them such that you’re not voted off with a vague assumption. Being caught murdering anyone it’s not enough to stop them. If you believe you’re in someone’s sight, behave as a typical crewmate would. Instead of walking blindly as though you’re looking for a goal that you are, admittedly, imagine you’re going from assignment to assignment.
If you can help it, don’t overtly stalk someone in Among Us, or randomly join and leave spaces, or execute abrupt U-turns. It takes surprisingly little to see yourself voted out as there are less crewmates left alive. Hence, d not give any players even the slightest excuse to doubt you.
The right line of sight is important.
We’ve just seen it happen before, to us. You think there’s an excellent opportunity for you to shoot. Boom! An innocent crewmate runs at the corner just before you click the shoot button. Embarrassing.
Although it’s not always a choice. Before you shoot, try to scope out the place. Stop killing in halls and corners because if any crewmate is close, you will get attention. There are a few different places that allow you to search for witnesses before the killing, such as Electric on the main map.
Blame Game: Insinuate More, Accuse Less
For some imposters in Among Us, emergency meetings aren’t just a survival game. Playing smart may give you the chance to rule out some old-fashioned political assassination.
Other players can soon catch on if you start tossing out brazen allegations everywhere. Adjust your language, and you’ll notice there’s a ton of room for you to maneuver.
You didn’t “catch” the blue streaming out of the dead body. You thought you saw the other gamers. You were with yellow, and you “didn’t see” anyone with purple. This is a lot more discreet than tossing allegations around, making you look less suspect, and if you are ever found on, offering the traditional “I wasn’t sure” explanation.
