For those who recently started playing Among Us, this article may be very useful to learn how the game works and what to do.

The Skeld is the primary and first map created in Among Us, set on a spaceship in outer space. It is automatically selected upon opening the game for the first time. The map was the only one included in the first version of the game's launch in 2018, with MIRA HQ, Polus, and The Airship being added subsequently. This map is the most popular because of its design and tasks and some characteristics that it integrates.

  • There are four visual tasks on The Skeld. Crewmates can prove their innocence by completing these in front of other Crewmates if visual task effects are enabled in the game's options.
    • The Skeld is the map in Among Us with the most visual tasks, while the map with the least visual tasks is MIRA HQ.
  • Various vent systems are littered throughout The Skeld, similar to Polus.
  • During April Fools, the textures and layout of The Skeld are reversed, causing the map to appear as if it is flying backward. The Skeld's name is also changed to "ehT dlekS".
    • Players can also set their device clock to April 1st to do this anytime.
  • Due to the many visual tasks in The Skeld, it is considered the easiest map when visual task effects are enabled.
  • The Skeld is known as the most popular map in the game.
  • Ghosts can fly out of The Skeld, although there is an invisible barrier that eventually stops them before they go too far out.
  • During Halloween in 2019 and 2020, The Skeld, along with MIRA HQ, received some visual changes, giving it Halloween decorations such as webs, spiders, bats, pumpkins, candles, etc. Players' devices can have their date set to "October 31, 2019" to play the game with these maps, even in online play.
  • The Skeld's map ID is 0.
  • The Skeld is the third-largest map in the game, the smallest being MIRA HQ, the second-largest being Polus, and the largest being The Airship.
  • Every location on The Skeld contains a vent in it, excluding O2, Communications, and Storage.
  • The Skeld's shape is shown beneath the hexagons in Prime Shields.
  • In an earlier version of Among Us, there were Security cameras in Electrical, MedBay, and Reactor.
  • The Skeld is the only currently-released map to contain tasks in each location.
  • The Skeld's name was based on the Swedish word for 'Shield', possibly due to the ship's shape.
