This Christmas mod of Among Us has an interesting variation, compared to the usual versions of the game. Santa is the impostor in this mod, assisted by his two elves. Their motive is to capture all the crewmates, who appear as reindeer.

The gameplay we see includes 12 players, comprising nine reindeer, two elves, and one Santa Claus. Only Santa possesses the ability to kill, and his elves can capture the reindeer. However, the uncaptured reindeer can aid the captured reindeer by releasing them. Santa’s aim in this mod is to capture all the reindeer for victory, but if he kills someone, the game starts anew.

The Christmas mod for Among Us varies from the other mods created because this version includes the option of simply ‘capturing’ players instead of killing them. The mod seems to be quite fun to play and is available for play here.

The gameplay was a hilarious watch

In a video that has gathered over 13 million views in one day, we see YouTuber Socksfor1 play five rounds of the Christmas edition mod of Among Us. He is a crewmate for three of those rounds, where he gets captured every time. He tries to trash talk Santa in each of those games, asking why all the kids are becoming Santa.

However, his trash talk does not stop even when he is Santa, where they win the round because the elves capture all the reindeer while he is busy trash talking one of his friends.
