How to play the new Airship map in Among Us on Nintendo Switch

The process to play the new Airship map in Among Us is pretty easy. For now, it only works on the Nintendo Switch due to a glitch in the game. As of now, the glitch is still working so players can follow a few simple steps and hop on the map.

Firstly, the players have to host a lobby from the main menu. After they click the ‘create game’ option, they can head over to the laptop near the spawn. The laptop allows a host to change the settings of a game, including the map.
