    6:15 that's a two part task so the taskbar won't go up if the second part is not complete


    You know when he said use reverse psychology and now everyone's going to do that Don't because then they will always win Don't use reverse psychology ( sorry the message was so long)

    Mattpat I have en idea that works when only one player can clear another. So if only one person lets say only yellow saw purple scan and there hasn’t been a meeting then you can kill yellow and when they say yellow saw them scan the crew won’t be able to trust them because yellow is dead but if you’re with random than they might trust purple and they’ll then be semi-safe

    One time I was on Mira hq map, and I went down hard.. Keep in mind that this game must’ve lasted 10 minutes. Anyways, I must be the most unlucky imposter of all time! Why? Because everyone happened to prove their innocence either by doing scan or something like that or the task bar must’ve gone up when they did a task. As I said, everyone did this; I was orange. And here why I’m sorta unlucky- Black was going to be voted off and everyone and I mean everyone had their votes locked on him! But, he said to give him a 2nd chance. You may think that they would said “NO!”, but nope, they all skipped and watched him do the task and watch the bar go up! At this point, I was panicking. EVERYONE had proved their innocence, but ME. In the next meeting, everyone mentioned that I was the only person who haven’t proved their innocence! They were saying things like: “Has anyone cleared orange” And “It’s 100% orange” (Btw orange is me) and “Orange is lookin’ VERY sus. And like that, They ejected me off the ship... Single imposter, only a few kills, And had a bad way to go down..... This was actually fun to type I must admit! Have a good day!

    At the beginning of the video. If you want to know if a word is spelled with "or" or "er" at the end, find out if it's a suffix or not. since "impost" isn't a word an "imposter" isn't described as "someone who imposts" like run -> runner receive -> receptor MOST of the time. I don't have the entire dictionary memorized and there are exceptions to every rule in English.

    I know a smart trick were you are imposter and you are with two people alone kill one of them and put the blame on the other because now in days it doesnt say if they were crew or imposter it just says ejected and you have to be careful that your not playing in a server that does 50/50

    One thing that you can do to see if someone is lying in real life or among us is have them repeat their story backwards. If you make something up on the spot, it will be harder to remember what you said in the reverse way that you came up with it. So if someone says that they came from cafeteria into admin after doing asteroids before doing that trash task in storage, they’re probably safe.

    🔫💡Here is a idea what to do as a crew mamber stay near the bouton and when someone comes to kill you press the bouton and tell on them and the first person you see as a imposter dont kill so thay say your not a imposter and kill peple near vests so you can go into the vents and go somewhere far from the body💡 🔪🏁

    My Strat is gain an alibi and NOT kill basically act like a crewmember. Call sabotages but let the crewmembers vote themselves off. keep the alibi alive so when it's final 3 you vote the other person.

  • CharmDev

    You shouldnt kill in front of someone then self report and say you saw and its not them then they will immediatle vote you out. What I do is say I saw them run from body so I dont know and it might be them or they are trolling IM BIG BRAINED

    Among Us Story: I was playing with three of my other friends (making 4 of us), and EVERYONE saw me vent then and there in that back area of the laboratory on Polus. I was panicking. First, I sabotaged the lights. Then, everyone went to fix it, but one of my friends were lagging behind. I killed him (in Among Us obviously). This makes two innocents and one impostor, meaning that I would only have to kill one to win the game. They fixed the lights and went to call an emergency meeting to vote me out. I was waiting there and killed one of them. Boom, I won. They didn't know about the first guy I killed and so didn't report. I came in clutch there!

  • Captain_CandyCaddet

    Be careful with two part tasks when you see a faker. Things like wiring, trash, and uploads are more than one part tasks so follow them and check they finish it. Say I walked up to the first part of trash, and so did purple. Purple goes down so I follow. Then they do the second part and walk away but the trash doesn’t show to be flying out and the task bar didn’t go up. Is that sus or not hmm? Definitely sus. Go report that. Also don’t play with non moving bars until meetings. That is a lesson.
