There are three maps in Among Us: The Skeld, POLUS and MIRA HQ. Most players are only familiar with The Skeld as it is the first and most popular map.

This is why many players find it difficult to navigate and complete tasks in other maps.

Meanwhile, there are a lot of fun unique tasks on the other maps. I would be showing you 5 hacks you need to win in each map, both as a crewmate and as an impostor.

The Skeld

This is the first map released by the developers of Among Us, it is also the least complicated map according to most players. It only has three unique tasks.

#1 THE SKELD HACK

As a crewmate, try to avoid the communications room as much as possible, because the isolated nature of the comms. room makes it an easy place to get killed.

You don’t want to be caught there alone by an impostor. As an impostor, the communications room is one of the best places in The Skeld to make kills and not get caught.

#2 THE SKELD HACK

As a crewmate, try to avoid the communications room as much as possible, because the isolated nature of the comms. room makes it an easy place to get killed.

You don’t want to be caught there alone by an impostor. As an impostor, the communications room is one of the best places in The Skeld to make kills and not get caught.

#3 THE SKELD HACK

The security cameras in The Skeld can be viewed in the security room. It is a great way to catch impostors making a kill, using a vent or leaving a room you did not see them enter.

#4 THE SKELD HACK

For impostors, the security room is one of the best places to make a kill because usually there are no witnesses, it has a vent and the door can be locked. Ensure to lock the doors, kill the crewmate and vent out as soon as possible.

#5 THE SKELD HACK

Experienced impostors would wait for the lights that indicate that someone is watching the cameras to go off before they make a kill.

What you can do to catch such impostors is to look out for a crewmate doing a task with another crewmate standing by, then leave the cameras so that the lights go off, go back to check the cameras, if you spot a dead body then you know who did it.

Mira HQ

MIRA HQ is the most unique of all maps, and the only map without a single security camera. It has the best vent network too, which makes it a haven for impostors.

#1 MIRA HQ HACK

The run diagnostics task: To complete the run diagnostics task in Mira HQ launchpad, open the task, click the spacebar on the screen and you would see a 100 second countdown.

You can either wait for 100 seconds to complete the second part of the task or to save time move to other tasks.

After 100 seconds, the next part asks you to choose the anomaly, watch out for the red lines and click on it to complete the task.

#2 MIRA HQ HACK

Laboratory Tasks: There are two tasks in the laboratory, “Sort samples” and “Assemble Artifact”.

The first task gives you three containers, and you are to sort the 6 items into the three containers.

The first container on the left is for gems, the second one to the right with a leaf symbol on it is for plants, and the last box in the middle is for animals.

You are meant to arrange the 6 items into the three boxes just like it is done in the image below to complete the task.

The second laboratory task: Assemble the artifact. You are given 5 pieces of a whole gem and you are to arrange them correctly.

It is easier to begin from the bottom to the top. You place the first piece in the centre of the blue field (as indicated below).

Then you place the other pieces on top of it in the right order to form a tall gem and complete the task. Note that you can place the broken gems in any order, but you must aim for its position and give space for the missing piece.

E.g., you cannot place the third piece directly on top of the first piece, but you can aim for its position which is above the second piece even when you are yet to add the second piece.

Make sure you do these on time to avoid getting killed by an impostor or an emergency meeting that makes you lose your progress.

#3 MIRA HQ HACK

Admin ID code task: This task is simple, but many people still struggle with it because they do not know what to do. Head to the launchpad to complete the Admin ID code task.

Once you get to the launchpad, click on the ID in your wallet that appears below. Type in the number you see on the card into the space provided on what looks like a dial pad. To complete the task.

#4 MIRA HQ HACK

The Buy Beverage Task: To complete the Buy Beverage task, head to the cafeteria and locate the vending machine. (as seen below).

The combination of the beverages on the vending machine changes every time you open and close it, but that is not what you should be focused on.

Look down to the right-hand corner of the vending machine and you will see a sketch of a beverage, that sketch represents what you are to buy.

There are 12 spaces in the vending machine, each labelled with a number from A1-A4, B1-B4 and C1-C4.

Look for the beverage that looks like the sketch and type the code it is labelled with on the dial pad located in the middle of the right-hand side of the machine.

It purchases the beverage, and the task is completed.

#5 MIRA HQ HACK

If you are playing as an imposter in MIRA HQ, you need to note that it is the map with the most connected venting system.

That makes it possible for you to go anywhere in the map through the vents, make a kill and use the vents to somewhere else.

Note that if you spend too much time in the vents then your crewmates would not really see you around trying to finish tasks and that can make you suspicious during meetings when a body is found.

POLUS

#1 POLUS HACK

POLUS has a corner of its map walled off by decontamination chambers which cannot be vented into, making it difficult for impostors to make a kill in that area, since they cannot vent in and vent out to avoid getting caught.

#2 POLUS HACK

The Laboratory reset drill task: Locate the drill in the laboratory (it looks like a rocket). Open the task and you would see 4 red squares with an exclamation mark blinking inside each of them. Click on the square 4 times and it gets smaller, repeat the process for all the squares and that is how you complete the task.

#3 POLUS HACK

You can get information on which crewmates are dead or alive by checking the vitals computer in the office.

#4 POLUS HACK

POLUS security room can be found on the top left, near electrical. The security cams can be found there. Use it to survey the area by switching between 6 cameras, unlike The Skeld where you can watch all 4 cameras simultaneously.

#5 POLUS HACK

Encourage crewmates to go to the MedBay scanner to verify that they are crewmates. Take more than 4 people if possible, to avoid an impostor carrying out a double kill. Once you confirm those who are crewmates, it is easier to fish out impostors.
