Among Us - Best Settings

Recommended Settings


The best settings for a game will depend entirely on how you want to play Among Us, but if you prefer to involve a lot of strategic thinking, the settings below are recommended. These settings might slightly favor the Imposter, which will make the Crewmate team have to think more carefully, thereby making the game more interesting.

Recommended Settings & Reasons

SettingDetail & Reason
Number Of Impostors2 Impostors
Recommended to have 2 Impostors if you are playing with 8 or more players
Confirm EjectsOff
Not knowing whether ejected player was Impostor or not makes the game more interesting
Number of Emergency Meetings1
If you want to have more discussion among players, increase this number
Emergency Cooldown20seconds
Have the Emergency Cooldown slightly shorter than the Kill Cooldown so that you can call a meeting before an Imposter can have a chance to kill a Crewmate (in the event that you're certain someone is an Impostor)
Discussion Time15~30 seconds
If you are not using voice chat and typing takes more time, increase this time
Voting Time120 seconds
Player Speed1.25x
Crewmate Vision0.75x
Crewmates' vision is more limited than usual, letting Imposters act with more freedom
Impostor Vision1.5x
Impostors' vision is wider than usual, benefiting Imposters overall
Kill Cooldown22.5 seconds
The Kill cooldown is faster than usual, which makes games go by faster
Kill DistanceShort
This allows Crewmates to dodge or stay away from the Impostor's attack when a Crewmate finds a suspicious player
Visual TasksOff
Visual Tasks can prove to players who is really a Crewmate. If you prefer to find the Impostor by discussion rather than an obvious hint, turn this setting off
Common Tasks1
Long Tasks2
Short Tasks2
