Tasks are one of the main objectives of Crewmates during gameplay in Among Us. If all Crewmates, including ghosts, finish their tasks, the Crewmates automatically win the game. Tasks can be found all over the map. Impostors cannot complete tasks, but they are given a list of fake tasks to aid them.

There are three different types of tasks:

  • Short tasks often require only a single stage and take very little time to do depending on the player's speed, such as Chart Course and Clean Vent.
  • Long tasks usually have multiple stages, or force the player to spend a long time, such as Start Reactor.
  • Common tasks are assigned to every player in a game if one or more common tasks have been set in the game settings by the host of the game. For example, if one player has Swipe Card, everybody else does. Conversely, if one Crewmate does not have Swipe Card, then no other player has the task. Common tasks are an easy way to rat out Impostors, for if a Crewmate sees someone running a common task that they do not have, they can confirm that the other player is An Impostor. Crewmates should know what the common tasks are before using the emergency button and wasting a meeting.

The number of short tasks, long tasks, and common tasks can be adjusted in the game's options.

In a player's task list, common tasks are listed first, followed by long tasks and short tasks on the bottom. This also applies to automatically generated lists in Practice, but not when a player edits their Practice tasks.

Overview

Crewmate task list

An example of a task list.

The number of tasks that need to be completed can be set in the lobby by the host in the options menu, with a maximum of two common tasks, three long tasks, and five short tasks. A task's type is also dependent on the map played on. For example, Fuel Engines is considered a long task on The Skeld, Polus and The Airship, but is a short task on MIRA HQ.

If a task has multiple stages, a yellow arrow will appear on the player's screen, directing them to the location of the next stage of their task. The arrow's appearance is similar to that of the arrows pointing to Sabotages, excluding the red blinking effect. If Communications is sabotaged, the arrows will disappear. Tasks you need to complete are also marked by yellow outlines when you are in close proximity to the task.

Certain tasks are also classified as visual tasks, meaning other players can see a visual indicator of the task being completed. These tasks are challenging for Impostors to fake, and can be a sure-fire indicator of a lone Crewmate's innocence. However, The Airship contains no visual tasks. The lobby's host can also disable the visual effects of these tasks in Options.

Task Bar

Main article: Task bar

The task bar shows the number of tasks completed. By default, the task bar updates when a Crewmate completes a task. Multi-step tasks only raise the bar when their final stage is completed. For example, if players run Divert Power's first stage, in Electrical on The Skeld or The Airship, or Reactor on MIRA HQ, the task bar will not fill. However, once they complete the second stage in another location, the task bar will increase. If a player leaves a task without the bar increasing, they have a high chance of being An Impostor or doing a multi-step task. The frequency of the task bar being updated can be changed in the game's options. The task bar can be set to always update upon task completion, update at the start of an emergency meeting, or never update at all (the task bar is hidden in this case).

Fake Tasks

Main article: Guide:Faking tasks

For each Impostor, a list of fake tasks will appear in the screen's top-left corner—the same location as Crewmates' task lists. This list is used to help An Impostor act as a Crewmate when pretending to complete tasks. The fake task list will also inform Impostors of all common tasks given to the Crewmates, helping them lower their chances of being caught. Fake tasks cannot be done. In Reactor on The Skeld, there is a 'task' that appears to be for Divert power, but is impossible to complete. Another such dummy task can be seen on Polus in the Office, despite the fact that Divert Power is not an available task on the map. Three panels of Fix Wiring 'tasks' in Armory, Communications, and Vault on The Airship are also presented as dummy tasks and cannot be done. There is a bin for an Empty Garbage 'task' is located in Lounge near the stalls.

Practice

Main article: Practice

To edit tasks in Practice, there is a computer on the table (called Task Tester 2000) that also contains the emergency button, or at the Engine Room on The Airship. Pressing Customize, any task on the map can be assigned. The tasks are sorted by location.

Trivia

  • A commonly used trick to catch Impostors is to keep an eye on the task bar and see if it goes up when someone completes a task. However, this trick is not always accurate, as another Crewmate could be finishing a task simultaneously. Since the bar will go up, An Impostor could claim to have completed the task. The trick would also be impossible if task bar updates are set to Meetings or Never.
    • If there's the Fix Wiring task and you want to know wheter a Crewmate did it or an Impostor faked it, you could ask the player what was the order of the panels used. This also has its flaws, as the Crewmate could not have done all of the panels, or an Impostor would make a valid pattern.
  • Polus has the most common tasks, being: Swipe Card, Fix Wiring, Insert Keys and Scan Boarding Pass.
  • The Skeld has the most visual tasks, being: Clear Asteroids, Empty Garbage/Chute, Prime Shields, and Submit Scan.
  • When the game options are set to zero tasks, each player is assigned a random short task. This is to prevent an automatic victory for the Crewmates.
  • If a player in Practice adds to their task list during a Sabotage other than Comms Sabotaged, the tasks added appear underneath the alert regarding the Sabotage.
  • The Airship is the only map without visual tasks.
  • Fix Wiring is the only hardest common task that appears in all four maps.
  • Some tasks are said to be in a location on the task list but are actually outside the location. Fix Wiring on The Skeld is an example of this, with 3 of the panels being outside the location they are apparently in.
