Part of the charm and the fun of Among Us is fooling friends or watching popular streamers fool other streamers as the Imposter. While playing a Crewmate is often safer and somewhat easier, it is clear playing the Imposter is a main draw of the game. Naturally, because it is always more fun to play the hunter than the hunted, players may seek a way to manipulate the game and make sure they play the Imposter every time.

While there are a few ways to statistically improve the chance of playing the Imposter, and while several fans around the Internet have suggested potential glitches, no method to try and become the Imposter every time is 100% effective. This is probably for the best, since most everyone seems to enjoy playing Imposter at least some of the time. Still, players can try to improve their odds of becoming the Imposter by selecting certain lobbies and trying a few of the “hacks” fans have discovered. Here are some tips to improve the chances of playing the Imposter more frequently in Among Us.

How to Play Imposter More Often in Among Us

To be clear, there is currently no method or exploit to guarantee a player will be the Imposter every time. Players can only improve their chances. Statistically, the easiest and most effective way to play Imposter more frequently is to join games with 3 Imposters and games with fewer players in the lobby. Smaller matches and larger numbers of Imposters will make it possible for the player to be selected more frequently.

One player on Reddit suggested they are always chosen as the Imposter when they host a match but do not have players join using a room code. While this is not a proven hack, it may be worth trying for players who would rather be the sole Imposter in a match.

A YouTuber by the name of Xeexhxn suggested players could manipulate the game into making them the Imposter every time by entering a public game with three Imposters, using the laptop in the lobby to customize their character, and, when the timer hits the five-second countdown, click through the various hats or pets available as quickly as possible and without duplicating any. While this seemed to work for Xeexhxn, this method is also unproven as a reliable way to guarantee a player is always the Imposter.

Finally, another YouTuber named Adi Gamer suggested players can move around the crates in the lobby in a specific pattern to become the Imposter each time. To do this, the player needs to walk in a circle six or seven times around the crate containing the laptop where players customize their characters. After completing their circuit, they will need to stand behind the rightmost box until the match begins. Adi Gamer claims this works better in matches where there will be two Imposters. As before, this is not proven.

Though it may not be the most exciting, players who are not selected to play Imposter during a match should continue to be patient and keep playing. Eventually, their time will come. Right now, the absolute worst things a player could do include cheating or hacking, which has started to become a problem in the community and could get a player banned, or leaving a game in the middle because the player was not picked to be the Imposter. Cheating, hacking, and leaving tend to be frowned upon by other players, and in a cooperative experience like Among Us, being courteous and patient is key to making the game enjoyable for everyone.

Among Us is available for PC, iOS, and Android.
