Top 10 Dumbest Things to Do as the Impostor in Among Us

The Top Ten
1 Vent in front of someone

Is it weird that I never use the vents, like at all? I feel like using something that only the impostors can do just doesn't feel right and makes things obvious.

Sometimes you haven't even had the chance to kill, and then you're already oUt.

That's almost an immediate giveaway, good luck explaining that one.

Why would you do that

2 Kill in front of someone

Can work sometimes in a stack kill but it's very risky to pull off. Try to avoid this at all costs. Don't kill in high traffic areas like cafeteria or storage on Skeld.

If only one person sees you kill, then it's easier to take care of

My first time as imposter I killed in front of 5 people but I've gotten much better

3 Self report

It's useful in some ways but it goes both ways. Be careful because this is very ballsy to do.

I never do that

4 Not say anything during meetings

Don't go silent for too many meetings, otherwise someone will find you sus. At least say something even if it's just here or skip or something like that.

I always talk during the meetings.

I see this all the time

5 Try to fake a visual task

I think I should fake a visual task I will just turn off visual tasks animations so yea.

This includes medbay scan, asteroids, and trash. They have visual animations to prove you're safe. Don't fake these tasks.

6 Walk away from a task without the bar going up

"Why did the bar graph not go up?" Because you walked away from a task

How dumb are you

7 Not vote for the other impostor when everyone else is against them

If you're black and yellow is the other impostor and everyone agrees it's yellow, sometimes you have to backstab, otherwise if the vote shows you voted for like say pink, then you look sus, especially if they are known to be innocent.

Just make up an excuse.

8 Lock the door to a room and kill someone in the room

Say cyan and white are trapped in electrical, if cyan kills white and vents when the door opens, chances are high they will be caught.

9 Follow a crewmate for a long time

You know how if someone follows you and they won't go away, they're instantly sus, right? Well, don't do that because you know some crewmate will be paranoid and accuse you.

10 Kill in medbay and then use cams or electrical as your alibi on Skeld

This is a pretty suspicious thing to do since those vents are connected so you can still be accused. Best bet is to go to cafeteria, storage, or reactor.
