How to play as a Vampire in Among Us

As the “vampire imposter’, a player has three unique abilities. Firstly, a player can use ‘bite’ which will kill any crewmate 15 seconds after they have been bitten.

Secondly, they can use the ‘bat’ icon to turn into a bat and speedily fly around the map. While in bat form, imposters maintain complete anonymity.

Lastly, the vampire imposter can blind crewmates for a short while with a mysterious black smoke. Vampires also have the ability to kill with a modified kill-cooldown that gets shorter after every kill.

While most mods are enjoyable because they let one team run rampant with overpowered abilities, what differentiates this mod from others is that it gives the crewmates a method to protect themselves.

Since garlic is the known weakness of vampires, each player has a clove of garlic with them. When dropped on the ground it creates a shroud within which the imposter cannot use his abilities.
