Submit Scan is a task in Among Us, accessed at MedBay. It is completed as a long task on The Skeld and MIRA HQ, and as a short task on Polus. It reports the Crewmate's height and weight, which are the same for all players, except for Fortegreen, who weighs 132 pounds. The color of the player along with their ID and a random blood type are also reported.


Submit Scan is completed by a player standing on top of the scanning platform which scans them for around ten seconds. While scanning, their information is displayed on the interface, and a holographic overlay is shown both to themselves and other players. The hologram allows Crewmates to prove their innocence, and thus making it easier to discover The Impostor. The overlay will not display for other players if visual tasks are disabled.

Multiple players may not perform Submit Scan simultaneously. If a player is already scanning, other players accessing the panel will have to wait in a queue for the current player to finish before initiating their own scan. The message "Waiting for {Player name}" will display to let them know this is happening.

The message is displayed even if visual tasks are disabled, allowing players to use the queue to confirm each other's innocence. If a Crewmate cancels their scan while another player is waiting for them, the second player will begin their scan, allowing the first player to confirm their innocence by accessing the scanner again.

  • Originally, Submit Scan was considered a common task, but Innersloth decided to make it a long task, while the Fix Wiring task was classified as a common task.[1]
  • In a previous version of Among Us, there was a glitch where if a Crewmate repeatedly got off and on the scanner, they would appear to have the visual animation of being scanned while moving. They could repeatedly prove their innocence doing this. The higher the ping was, the more easily players could achieve this glitch.
  • When the task is begun, there is a response that says, "Scan Requested". The time this takes is usually too short to display the message. Because Fortegreen cannot do the task, the message can display.
  • The scanner used to complete Submit Scan is named "Scan-Mo-Tron-2000".
  • If a ghost is performing Submit Scan, living Crewmates will have to wait for the ghost to finish. Ghosts will also have to wait for living Crewmates to finish completing the task.
  • All the other tasks on The Skeld can be opened by either clicking or tapping on the task or using the Use button. However, Submit Scan can only be opened via the use button, unlike the other tasks on The Skeld.
  • In the Nintendo Switch edition of Among Us, there is a bug that prevents the height of the scanning Crewmate from showing.
  • The scan animation can't be seen if a ghost is completing the task, even in the scanner's perspective.
  • The scanner on MIRA HQ is slightly different from that of Polus and The Skeld.
