Among Us has defied the odds and has skyrocketed in popularity. The game was relatively unknown when it was originally released back in 2018, but has since seen a major boost in its player base, thanks to the help of some viral streamers. In Among Us, up to 10 players have to work together to complete tasks found around the map, all while avoiding the Imposters lurking in the shadows, plotting the deaths of the crew. It's an engaging social deduction game that is available on PC, Android, and iOS.

After exploring the game's three levels, you might be asking for more ways to play. Well, the good news is that games can be customized to your liking. Not happy with the recommended settings?

Make it a horror movie

An alien lurking in the shadows trying to kill the crew – sounds like the makings of a horror movie, right? Well, to turn your game into a bonafide monster movie, try these settings:

Cyber Monday may be over but these Cyber Week deals are still alive

Name Recommended Setting
Map The Skeld
Number of Imposters 1
Confirm Ejects Enable
Number of Emergency Meetings 0
Emergency Cooldown 60 seconds
Discussion Time 15 seconds
Voting Time 15 seconds
Player Speed 1.5x
Crewmate Vision 2x
Imposter Vision 0.25x
Kill Cooldown 10 seconds
Visual Tasks On
Kill Distance Short
Common Task 0
Long Task 0
Short Task 5

The key to making this game mode work is to agree to not report bodies or to call an emergency meeting. If you are using voice chat with your friends, agree to mute your mic if you're dead and only communicate with other dead folks through the in-game chat. If you just witnessed a brutal murder though, tell your friends! Imposters should refrain from sabotaging anything except the doors. That'll up the tension of the game significantly, as players scramble to escape the clutches of their soon-to-be killer.

Just a little game of Hide and Seek

This game mode has been put together by fans who enjoy the chase. For a rousing game of Hide and Seek, try these settings:

Name Recommended Setting
Map The Skeld
Number of Imposters 1
Confirm Ejects Enable
Number of Emergency Meetings 0
Emergency Cooldown 60 seconds
Discussion Time 15 seconds
Voting Time 15 seconds
Player Speed 1.5x
Crewmate Vision 4x
Imposter Vision 0.5x
Kill Cooldown 10 seconds
Visual Tasks Off
Kill Distance Short
Common Task 0
Long Task 0
Short Task 5

The Imposter should announce who they are at the start of the match. The Imposter can't see much, but their kill cooldown is very short. Players must complete their tasks as quickly as possible and avoid being killed. You can't vote the killer off, but you can report bodies. Doing so, however, will bring the killer to you, so watch out. Make the Imposter count to 10 and find a good spot to hide!

Pick your poison
