The Skeld, often shortened to Skeld, is the first map 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, The Airship, and Map 5 being added subsequently.

  • There are four visual tasks in total on The Skeld. Crewmates are able to prove their innocence by completing these in front of other Crewmates if visual task effects are enabled in the game's options by the host before the game starts.
    • The Skeld is the map in Among Us with the most visual tasks, while the map with the least visual tasks is The Airship.
  • Various vent systems are littered throughout The Skeld, similar to Polus and The Airship.
  • 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 1 to do this at any time.
  • Due to the many visual tasks in The Skeld, it is considered the easiest map when visual task effects are enabled.
  • Ghosts can fly out of The Skeld, although there is an invisible barrier that eventually stops them before they go too far out.
  • From October 19 to October 31, The Skeld, along with MIRA HQ, receive some visual changes, giving it Halloween decorations such as webs, spiders, bats, pumpkins, candles, etc. Players' devices can have their date set to any time during that period to play the game with these maps, even in online play.
  • 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.
  • There are 14 vents and also 14 locations, but they are not evenly distributed. The three rooms without vents (O2, Communications, and Storage) are matched by the second vent in Reactor, the second vent in Navigation, and a vent in an unnamed corridor north of Shields.
  • 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 and Reactor.
  • The Skeld is the only currently-released map to contain tasks in each location.
    • Also, note that each location contains at least 2 tasks.
  • The Skeld's name was based on the Swedish word for 'Shield', possibly due to the ship's shape.
  • In the Quick Chat interface, The Skeld is shortened to “Skeld”.
  • The vent layout of The Skeld is vertically symmetrical.
  • The Skeld is the only map in Among Us not to have a promotional banner.
  • The Skeld is the only map which shares a spawn point and meeting point.
