Tips for beginners
Here are some tips for people who want to start their adventure with Among Us. For more tips for Among Us, see the Starting tips page.
- Click on the screen to speed up the starting animation, so you can start the game much faster.
- Do not fear being killed, especially when you are just a beginner. You also don't have to walk in a group, as Impostor has a 10-60 second cooldown so it won't kill you straight away.
- Remember to report that you have found the body of another player to avoid any suspicions. There's a good chance that if someone spots you near the body, they'll report you and accuse of being an Impostor.
- When you are an Impostor, you should pretend that you're doing tasks, because someone might accuse you of not doing them. However, be careful not to get caught while pretending.
- Watch out for the cameras in the rooms. If they glow red, it means someone is in a room looking through them and watching what you're doing.
- Use vents to move quickly between locations, but remember that only Impostor can use them. If you see someone who jumped out of it, you will know who the impostor is.
