Divert Power is a task in Among Us, the first stage completed as a short task in Electrical on The Skeld, as a long task starting in Reactor on MIRA HQ (unless the ending location is Laboratory), and on The Airship starting in Electrical — each time with a variable location for the second stage.

Overview

Stage 1: Divert Power

The first stage of the task requires the player to flip a switch in Electrical or Reactor, depending on the map. They must move the highlighted switch up. Moving the switch towards the bottom decreases the power, which is not what Crewmates should do to complete the task. The task bar will not go up when a Crewmate has completed this stage.

Stage 2: Accept Diverted Power

In the second stage, the player needs to travel to the respective room to accept the diverted power. The power is diverted to the area indicated by the label above the switch in Stage 1. The rooms that accept the power are:

Location Map
Admin MIRA HQ
Armory The Airship
Cafeteria MIRA HQ
Cockpit The Airship
Communications MIRA HQ, The Skeld
Engine Room The Airship
Gap Room The Airship
Greenhouse MIRA HQ
Laboratory MIRA HQ
Launchpad MIRA HQ
Lower Engine The Skeld
Main Hall The Airship
MedBay MIRA HQ
Meeting Room The Airship
Navigation The Skeld
O2 The Skeld
Office MIRA HQ, Polus*
Reactor The Skeld*
Security The Skeld
Shields The Skeld
Showers The Airship
Upper Engine The Skeld
Weapons The Skeld

*: Fake panels

Once in the room, the player must locate the panel to accept the diverted power, then turn the fuse by clicking or tapping it to complete the task.

Nintendo Switch

On Nintendo Switch edition, players will have to move the trigger L or R up, depending on the side of the switch (L for left, R for right) to complete Stage 1. On Stage 2, players will have to press the Trigger L button.

Trivia

  • Reactor on The Skeld has a fake second stage Divert Power panel. It is not a real task and cannot be interacted with. No switch on the first stage's panel is labeled Reactor.
  • Polus is the only map without Divert Power.
    • Despite this, there a fake Divert Power panel in Office near the emergency button.
      • However, the panel for Replace Water Jug is near the fake Divert Power panel, so it is hard to tell whether the player is doing the Replace Water Jug task or faking the Divert Power task.
  • Communications is the only location that contains a second stage Divert Power panel on both The Skeld and MIRA HQ.
    • There are no locations that contain an Accept Diverted Power panel on both The Airship and The Skeld/MIRA HQ.
  • On the stage 1 panel on The Skeld, the name strip for O2 shows "O1".
    • Upper Engine is also labeled as "L. Engine", and Lower Engine "R. Engine", which presumably stands for "Left Engine" and "Right Engine", respectively.
  • The Divert Power panel on The Airship has a switch for Vault with a sticky note labeled "PLZ FIX" placed over the name strip. The switch cannot be used, and there is no Accept Diverted Power panel in Vault.
  • As of the current update, it is possible to have more than one Divert Power task. [needs testing]
