Let the Games Begin

Once the game starts, there are different gameplays for both Crew members and Imposters. Let’s dive right into it.

1. Crew Members

Crew members need to save the space ship by finishing the assigned tasks while trying not to get killed by Imposters. Crewmates need to complete the tasks like –

  • Fix Wiring
  • Fixing Electrical Circuit
  • Align Engine Output
  • Align Telescope
  • Calibrate Distributor
  • Divert Power
  • Empty Garbage
  • Process Data

While performing all these tasks, if you see a dead body of any player, then report it immediately with all the players.

Among Us Dead body report

When you report a dead body with all the players, you can have a discussion about who among all would have killed that player. You can chat using the chat feature in the game.


If you or anyone else would have seen some imposter killing the player, you can share your thoughts with everyone & try to convince everyone that the particular player is an imposter and vote that player out by calling a meeting.

All the players deciding whom to vote out according to the situation will throw out that player in space. If the player who got voted out was an Imposter, then the crew members are one step ahead in the game and try to vote out remaining imposters before they kill any other player.

2. Imposter

If you are an Imposter, then take it casually and try to blend in with other crew members. You need to take full precautions before doing anything suspicious, like the things only Imposters can do.

If there are multiple imposters, then you will know the other player (Imposter) from the start of the game & you guys can plan the strategy and try to finish the game without getting kicked out of the ship.

  • Imposter comes with some special skills as compared to crew members –
    • Imposters can use vents to travel from one room to another.
    • Imposters can hide in vents.
    • They can directly kill crew members.
    • Imposters can sabotage crew members

Basically, the role of an Imposter is to progress the game by killing all the crew members. Before killing a crew member, scan the nearby area and make sure nobody is around and no other crew member should see you killing the crew member.

Thus, an Imposter secretly kills the crew members and tries not to get kicked out of the ship by surviving the vote out.

Secret Tips and Tricks to Win Among Us

The best tips & tricks while playing Among Us game to save yourself being a Crew member or Imposter and find the potential Imposter to finish the game.

Imposter Tips and Tricks

Imposter Wins

1. Play Hide & Seek

Always try to be aware while killing or sabotaging a crew member. Look out for other crew members, check that no other crew member is around while killing the crew member.

Beware of all the crew members, sneak out in private, and have an eye on all the players & check they are busy performing tasks and find a player how is alone and if no one is around, then you can take a shoot. Try to find the perfect moment.

2. Collaborate

It’s always better to have someone’s back. The trust you build in the game will fly back to you like a boomerang at the time of decision making.

Always try to gain the crew member’s trust, by helping them in fixing the reactor or by performing some assigned tasks, in that way if you kill or sabotage any player in private, then the player who saw you performing the tasks will support you and will save you from vote out.

3. Mass Killing

It’s a wrong strategy to think staying in a group will not get you killed. Actually, it’s will be a piece of cake for the Imposter to kill a crew member as blame can come on anyone.

A simple trick is to switch off the lights in sabotage map and press the kill button. As taking advantage of darkness, no one will know about the imposter unless the player is in proximity.

4. Kill at First Sight

Imposters can kill the crew members from a distance. You don’t require to be in proximity to kill a crewmate. If the kill button is available at a distance from a crew member, you can take that kill.

5. Damage the Reactor

O2 & Reactor are two rooms which you can damage and use it as a bait. As fixing these rooms is important, otherwise the crew members will lose the game.

Damaging the reactor will force the crew member to rush in and repair the reactor or the O2 level. Thus, wait for a crew member to enter and if that player is alone, you are good to go 😎.

Crew Members’ Tips and Tricks

1. Don’t be Lone Wolf

It’s a simple understanding to stay nearby another crew member as if you get killed by an imposter. The other player will report the body and will vote out the imposter in space.

Try to be at least with one crew member and both of you perform tasks together. Do not blindly believe the player, as he might be an imposter. First, check if the player is busy doing tasks and once you are fully confident about that player, then you can make an ally and support each other.

2. Use CCTV

Crew members can use a special feature available to omnipresent by having an eye in multiple rooms by using CCTV from security room.

CCTV from Security Room
CCTV from Security Room

Always be alert while accessing CCTV from the security room. A pro player in form of Imposter might know your plan and when you are busy accessing CCTV, an imposter might come in and kill you.

3. Hide & Seek

Being a crew member, you need to always be alert. Observe from a safe hideout, if two players went inside a room and after some time you see a dead body, you will know whom to vote out from a spaceship.

4. Make Smart Voting Decision

Communicate throughly while deciding the imposter in vote out. Ask all the players if they have seen someone coming out from a room where the dead bogy was reported.

Think in a way that if you vote out the wrong player, one of the crew member will be thrown out in space and thus imposters can take advantage of this. In case you made a wrong decision, quickly call an emergency meeting as soon as possible and vote out the imposter before he/she kills everyone.

5. Performing Tasks

If one player among the crew member has to put keys or scan a card, then all the crew member has the same task. Observe all the members performing this task and the not performing this task will be an imposter.

Another simple yet logical tip – Do not follow a crew member in case you are an imposter, as they might get suspicious and might kick you out in space in vote outs.
