In Among Us, Imposters lurk among the crew, picking off members of the crew one by one. Crewmembers must work quickly and efficiently if they want to get out alive. Understanding the ins and outs of each of the game's three levels takes time, and learning how to complete every task is a task in itself. Don't fret though — we've got you covered. Here are all the tasks you'll encounter on Polus in Among Us.

All of the tasks found in Polus

Tasks are separated into three categories: Common, Short, and Long.

  • Short tasks require a single step or very little effort.
  • Long tasks have multiple steps, usually requiring the player to wait a certain amount of time or move to different parts of the ship.
  • Common tasks are given to every single Crewmate.

There are 23 tasks to be completed on Polus. 2 of those tasks are visual, which means you can use that task to prove your innocence to other players. Also, if you're killed, you can still complete your tasks to help the remaining Crewmembers win.

Among Us: Polus Pay attention to your notes

These are all of the tasks found on Polus. Out of the three maps available, Polus is the largest. There's a lot of open space on this level, so Crewmates should do their best to avoid being caught alone in the snow. If an Imposter catches you, it's all over.

There's plenty to cover in the game's two other maps, The Skeld and MIRA HQ. Among Us has quickly become the internet's favorite party game, perfect for gatherings happening in-person or virtually.
