1. Pretend Doing Tasks in Front of Crewmates
Performing tasks in front of other crewmates help to earn loyalty from other players regarding that you are not an imposter. Since an imposter cannot perform any real tasks but you can use sabotage and perform those tasks with other crewmates to earn their loyalty for you.
You can also pretend to do tasks while another player is already doing the same task like admin swipe cards, fix wiring, etc so that someone seeing you can believe that you have also done the task. But be careful do not fake visual tasks in Medbay, Weapons, O2 as others can know whether you were doing those tasks or not by seeing the animations.
2. Keep an Eye on Kill Cooldown Time
Whenever you kill someone, you need to wait for the kill cooldown timer to finish before killing other crewmates. In a scenario, if someone watches you killing a crewmate then you cannot kill the other one because there is cooldown time which needs to complete before the kill button again appears.
In such cases, you need your other imposter partner to kill the other one and go away from the killing spot as soon as possible. Do note that if you use vent to hide from other crewmates, then your kill cooldown time will stop during venting. It will also stop when you use a camera or admin map.
The shorter the kill cooldown time, the better is the chance for an imposter to win. You need to fake performing some tasks until the cooldown time gets over. Once, it gets over you are ready to kill crewmates again.
3. Don’t Follow Crewmates for Long
The main problem with most of the players who become an imposter follows their crewmates to kill making him/her suspicious. Just pretend to do some tasks and when you see only one crewmate is near you then kill him or her and then escape from the crime scene as soon as possible.
Just remember not to follow any crewmates for long-distance. It will be clear for crewmates that you are one of the imposters and you will be kicked out from the plane by the emergency meeting.
4. Use Sabotage to Increase Tasks for Crewmates
Imposters have a special feature to increase the crewmate’s tasks and if crewmates are not able to complete the sabotage tasks in time then imposters will automatically win the game.
You can also close the doors of the different rooms like reactors, cafeteria, electrical, etc to trap crewmates in the rooms for some time. Even if you are dead still you can use sabotage to increase crewmates tasks and close doors to trap them making it other imposters easier to kill crewmates.
To perform sabotage, just tap on the “Sabotage” button and a map will be open containing the entire sabotage missions and doors symbol. Just tap on the mission to create a sabotage mission or tap on the “X” symbol on the map to close the door of the room.
5. Don’t Accuse Other Crewmates too Fast
When the body gets reported, do not start accusing anyone without any valid reason because if your reasons are not so effective then other crewmates will know that you were faking with the wrong accuse and then all over for you. You will be kicked out with the majority of votes.
So better wait for someone to start the conversation and once it gets started, someone will accuse the wrong crewmate of being an imposter. That’s the chance for you. You can vote the wrong crewmate which others think as an imposter to kick him or her out from the plane thus making more chances to win the game.
6. Try Self Reporting
Most of the time when a dead body gets reported, other players have less doubt on the reporter player of been an imposter. Sometimes innocent crewmate gets kicked out in the vote helping more for an imposter to win the game.
Therefore, try self-reporting sometimes but do not, again and again, use the same strategy. Because if every time you report the body then it is clear for crewmates to predict that you were self-reporting the dead bodies.
7. Use Vent Wisely
After killing a crewmate, you can use a vent to get away from the crime spot by an underground tunnel (vents) and reach a different room. But make sure that during venting, nobody is close to you because the venting animation takes time. Try to vent immediately after killing a crewmate.
You can stay in the vents as long as you want but your kill Cooldown time will stop whenever you stay in the vents. Only come out from the vent when someone else is not in the room where you are going to vent because the venting feature is only available to imposters.
8. Watch out for Camera Before Killing Crewmate
Before killing any crewmate, do watch out for the cameras first if near you. It will blink red if someone is viewing from the camera and if you kill someone during that time then the cameraman can easily know that you are an imposter. All the cameras can be accessed through the security room.
There are cameras located at a different path like admin, electrical, navigation, etc. Once the red blinking gets over it means that no one is viewing from the camera and thus you can now kill the crewmate.
9. Don’t Panic if you get Spotted by One Crewmate
If in case someone watches you when killing a crewmate then do not panic in such a situation. During the meeting, try saying that other players had killed and now he or she took my name to kick me out as a crewmate making him winning more easily.
You can also try venting to reach the emergency button faster than other players and then wait for the player to come near and kill him or her easily.
But most important do not panic in such situations, just try accusing the crewmate who watched you while killing other players. Although you might get kick out from the plane in the next meeting still you have now made it easier for other imposters to win the game.
10. Kill Quickly When Reaching Endgame Time
If your game reaches to end like only a few crewmates are left then and still, more than 1 imposter is remaining then try killing as fast as you can to over the game. If possible then go with a double kill opportunity to win the game more fastly.
In case if only you are remaining as an imposter and the taskbar is near to full then kill crewmates without thinking so much to kill or not because ultimately you will lose if the taskbar becomes full.
11. Gain Crewmates Believe by Completing Sabotage Missions
It is not possible for an imposter to perform any of the tasks and that the main point ever crewmates identify whether a player is an imposter or not by seeing the taskbar. If you are faking to perform a task, you cannot fake it for a long time.
But you can perform sabotage tasks which will help to gain crewmates believe that you have done some tasks with them which could be considered as a plus point for you in the meeting arguments.
12. Kill when Crewmates Stands in Group
This trick is a little bit risky but worthy to try if you are an imposter. You can try killing a crewmate when more players are standing in the same position. Basically in among us, when more than 2 players stand in the same position then it becomes difficult to identify the imposter due to the animations and graphics in it.
If you do not want to try this trick then don’t worry, I have covered some other useful tricks also which will help imposter to win easily.
13. Hide the Deadbody if Someone is Near to You
Do not try to kill a crewmate when someone is coming to the place because it will completely risky. But if in case you killed a crewmate then you can stand near the dead body to hide it from other crewmates.
Crewmates will not be able to see the dead body until they come near you because if they come near you then the report button will appear on their screen by which they can understand that you have killed the crewmate and was hiding the dead body from their vision.
14. Close the Doors Before Killing Someone
One common mistake that most of the imposter do is that they kill a crewmate without closing the room doors. They use vents to escape from the crime scene but the body gets reported soon by the other crewmates as the room doors were not locked making a chance of dismissal for you in the meeting.
So it is better to close the room doors using sabotage if you are planning to kill a crewmate in the room and watch out if there are other players in the different rooms or not during venting.
Once the players leave the room then you can come out from the vent. Whenever you close the doors, it gets locked for more than 20 seconds which is enough time to kill and use the vent.
That’s it with the imposter’s tips and tricks. Now let’s see some useful tips and tricks which will help crewmates to win the game easily.
15. Watch Others Doing Tasks
Complete your tasks as fast as you can so that after completion you can keep a watch on other players from a distance. This will help you to keep track of different player’s locations. If the body gets reported then you can accuse someone who was near the dead body or the one who was pretending to complete a task.
If someone accuses you in return then you can have a plus point in the meeting by saying that you have completed all your tasks and now keeping a watch on other players.
Watching other players increases your chance to win as you can see crewmates doing visual tasks, etc which will help you to identify the imposters in the meeting.
16. Complete Task When Someone is Not Near You
Avoid doing long tasks like download and upload, start reactor, etc which takes the entire screen for completion. The reason behind it is that if an imposter kills a crewmate near you then you will not be able to know about it or you can also get killed in such tasks easily.
Also, avoid doing tasks in some deadly areas like electrical room, etc because an imposter can easily kill you and vent to reach different locations. You can perform tasks in such areas with your crewmate who has done the visual tasks.
17. Try to Move in Groups
Imposter does not have a chance to kill a crewmate while others are near to each other. Even if an imposter kills a crewmate then other crewmates can easily report the body and have a better idea about who might be the imposter.
Hence try to move in groups so that imposters do not have any chance to kill a crewmate leading to victory for crewmates. But do note that you move in a group with crewmates only (by seeing the visual tasks of the crewmates).
18. Keep an Eye on Different Rooms Vent
Did you ever notice the vents of other rooms from the same spot? Whenever you are in any room, you are still able to see the vents of other rooms from the same location.
Although it will not be so clearly visible still you can see the vents opening and closing whenever imposters use it. For example, you can see the Medbay room vent from the Electrical and Security room.
By noticing such small things can help a lot to identify the imposters in the match. This method is very useful as very few players keep an eye on vents of other rooms. Therefore whenever you are a crewmate, try to keep an eye on other rooms vent.
19. Do Visual Tasks When Others are Near You
You can easily recognize a crewmate if he/she performs the visual tasks like Medbay submit scan, Weapons clear asteroids, etc which other players can see you performing. An imposter can never perform such tasks.
Therefore, if someone is near you then you can perform the visual tasks to show them that you are not an imposter and gaining their belief in you. But make sure that you are performing visual tasks in front of two or more players.
20. Do Not Accuse People If Not Sure
In the meeting, do not start accusing other people if you are not sure of them been an imposter. If someone is accusing you then you can start giving them your answer to clear the accusation stated by the other player.
Also, you can identify if a player is accusing many other players then there is a chance that the accusing player is an imposter as he or she wants to remove innocent crewmates to win the match more easily.
21. Use Security Cameras
You can use security cameras to get a perfect view of the connecting room routes. If an imposter tries to kill a crewmate near the route then you can easily see it from the security room as all the cameras can be accessed from there.
Whenever you use security cameras, it starts to blink in red which means that someone is watching from the cameras. Therefore, imposters will avoid killing someone near the route, and in case if they killed the crewmates then you can watch them from cameras and report the imposters.
22. Watch Dead Body Carefully
Whenever you see a dead body still performing felling animation then quickly run to nearby rooms to see which players are in the other rooms. Sometimes an imposter kills a crewmate and vents mostly to other rooms.
For example: Whenever you see a dead body in the electrical room then quickly run to the nearby rooms like Medbay, etc to see which players are in the other rooms. You can then come back and report the body. Now you can accuse the player of being an imposter as he or she was nearest to the dead body location room.
23. Use Admin Map
Using the admin map present in the admin room, you can see all players location in the map and also you can see whether an imposter has killed a crewmate by the blinking animation which occurs in the admin map.
You can go to that dead body location and search players near the location helping to identify the imposters. That’s it with the tips and tricks for crewmates too. I hope now by following our tips and tricks you will be able to win among us rounds most of the time with your friends.
