How to play

Among Us is a game that is part survival, part puzzle, and part murder mystery. He sees a crew of up to ten on a ship trying to complete basic tasks to keep the ship going. The conflict is that there is at least one person called an impostor, who will not complete any tasks at all, but will instead try to kill everyone on board. Teammates must complete their tasks while trying to locate the impostor. If they don’t do so before the end of the game, the impostor wins.

Because the crew and the impostor have very different play styles, we went our separate ways how to play like them here, although there is some crossover.

How to play Among us as a teammate

To join a game, select online or local. From there you can choose to create or join a game and whether you are looking for a game with 1, 2 or 3 imposters. Learn more about all of the settings in the Rules & Settings: How To Build The Best Game Among Us guide.

  1. You won’t know if you’re a teammate or an impostor until the game starts.
  2. To control your character, it’s either the keyboard and mouse or just the mouse, while the speed of each can be adjusted by the host. What you choose is just a personal preference.
  3. On phones, there is an analog touchpad for getting around.
  4. To do tasks, you have to go to the correct room and click directly on the object or click on the “Use” button in the lower right corner. From there, each task is pretty self-explanatory.
  5. If you find a dead body, you can click “Report” in the lower right corner. This will call a team meeting, where you can discuss where you found the body, find out if anyone else was killed, and share your suspicions. However, you don’t have to report a body if you see one.
  6. You can also call an emergency meeting from a button in the middle of the map.
  7. After the discussions, you vote. You can choose to skip a vote. If there are the most votes or if there is a tie, no one will be expelled.
  8. To win the game, you must complete all the tasks before the impostor kills the crew.
  9. Once you are killed, you can continue to complete tasks as a ghost to help your team, but you cannot communicate.
