The motto is deceiving and camouflaging. Among Us, you have to prove yourself as a team member or Impostor to win the game. After each round of the game, a vote is taken as to who could be the imposter. You don’t suffer the fate of being thrown out due to ignorance; we show you here how Among Us works and which tasks you have to do.
How does Among Us work?
There are four to ten players in each game round. These players are divided into team members and impostors. Depending on what the host has chosen, there will be one, two or even three impostors.
Team members must complete tasks either alone or together during the game rounds. The whole thing doesn’t get too comfortable, the Impostor has to quietly and unnoticed sabotage the other players and turns them off one by one. After each corpse, all players can vote together who the traitor is. The one with the most votes is kicked out of the game. Whether you are right or not will show after the decision. If the result is without a majority, nothing changes.
How are the tasks going in Among Us?
As mentioned earlier, the crew members have to complete tasks during the game. As soon as everyone has completed their tasks, the team of crew members wins. The imposter cannot do any tasks, but they are given a list of which “fake tasks” they can do. The main reason for this is that they can hide better.
There are three different types of tasks:
General tasks: All players have the same task.
Short tasks: Can be done quickly and usually only take one step.
Long tasks: Are in several parts or have a long waiting time.
Some tasks are also called visual tasks. The other players can see when a task has been completed. So pay special attention to that and the security cameras.
Particular tasks in the map “Mira HQ.”

- Water plants Get the watering can from the attic and go into the greenhouse. There you have to tap each plant individually to water it.
- If you like games like this, we have a little recommendation for you. In the online multiplayer game “Shotgun Farmers” you are on a farm, and you have to emerge as the last survivor. Since you cannot reload ammunition, you must shoot into the ground to plant ammunition. You can take a look at the game in the following video.

Surviving in Among Us gets harder each round. Always pay attention to what is going on behind you to become a victim of the Impostor yourself. While this makes it a kind of survival game, other games are of a much stricter caliber. We’ll show you what these are here.
