Faking It: As Impostoras
One way to tell if someone is not faking a task is to pay attention to visual tasks. If the host switches visual tasks on, you should look for the visual animations that play during or at the end of visual tasks to make sure it was completed. Another method is to watch the taskbar. If the option of the Task Bar Update is set to always, see if it goes up after the player leaves the task. Note that if a player leaves a task without the taskbar going up, they are not always Impostors as they might have a multiple-part task they need to complete, or they may be fleeing from you if they think you are An Impostor. Even if visual tasks are off, you can catch Impostors faking the Submit Scan task if you also have Submit Scan. While one player is doing the scan, and you try to start the scan, a message should display: Waiting for (player name). This can confirm them as a Crewmate.
Impostors in Among Us are given a list of fake tasks to act like they are completing as a way to help them blend in with real Crewmates. The Impostors cannot participate in real tasks, which is particularly dangerous when it comes to visual tasks like scanning, clearing asteroids, or emptying trash. Because of this, if visual tasks are kept turned on in the game settings, players can easily find out whether a person is an Impostor by asking them to perform a visual task. However, even with visual tasks turned off, there are still ways for Crewmates to spot Impostors faking a task.
When playing as an Impostor, players tend to pretend to perform a task in full view of other Crewmates, who may then vouch for their innocence after seeing them working like everyone else. However, different tasks take different lengths of time to complete, and all completed tasks come with a visual cue of the progress bar at the top of the screen moving forward. Eagle-eyed Crewmates might be able to pick up on some of the best Impostor tricks in the game and recognize when an Impostor is not actually performing tasks. Here's how to spot Impostors faking tasks as a Crewmate in Among Us.
The easiest way to tell if someone is faking a task in Among Us is to pay attention to Common and Visual tasks. If the lobby host leaves visual tasks on, players should look for the visual animations that play at the end of visual tasks to make sure it was successfully completed. Players should also keep in mind which tasks, like Swipe Card, are always shared by all Crewmates. If any Crewmate has Swipe Card, it is safe to assume all Crewmates do. However, if a Crewmate does not have Swipe Card on their list, this indicates no one else has it either. If a player goes to perform Swipe Card, and the Crewmate watching does not have that task on their list, the Crewmate can reasonably assume this is an Impostor. The Common Tasks in the game are:
Finally, players can always see when tasks are being completed by watching the progress bar at the top of the screen. The progress bar will move any time a task is completed. For multi-step tasks, the bar will move when the last step of the task has been completed. Impostors faking tasks do not cause the progress bar to move. Some Impostors have taken to waiting at the location of the task until they notice the progress bar move from another Crewmate completing a task elsewhere on the ship or base. This can be helpful, but can also cause the Impostor to leave a long task too early and give themselves away anyway.
While killing and faking tasks are the primary goal of the impostor, they also have access to the technology within the ship. With this, they have the ability to shut doors, turn out the lights, and call potential meltdowns that could kill everyone aboard. These can be activated in a menu the impostors can bring up at any time, as long as the sabotage cooldown timer is at zero. While this is a crucial part of the game, it's important to be either faking tasks or actively walking while activating the sabotage. This can avoid people questioning why the impostor was just standing in place.
As on Among Us, impostors will be able to use "sabotage". However, the tools available are a little different. It will be possible to deactivate missions but also relocate agents or transform them into Peely the banana to cause confusion in the ranks. Another special feature is that imposters can also perform tasks to blend in with the background. But where Fortnite Impostors differs from Among Us is that players won't be faking it and will help the agents progress when necessary.
Con artists with a smile and a clipboard, impostors have a long history, a beguiling legacy of deceit that amazes and entices us. While most of us struggle to stay within social boundaries, impostors break through those barriers, striding effortlessly onto any stage they choose. Once in the limelight, they pull back the curtain of professional propriety, mocking its pretensions. Deep down, psychologists suggest, impostors appeal to us because we suspect that we are all, to some degree, faking it. Their stories expose the kaleidoscope of the self itself, and how to keep one step ahead of feeling like nobody ourselves.
The first step in becoming an S-Tier Impostor, is by faking tasks. Only Crewmates can complete tasks, so faking one when other players are near can give you an alibi. To fake a task, stand still in the task spot and wait a bit. Try to leave just after the task bar in the upper left corner fills up, to prove that you really did it. Note that many players will be doing tasks in early game, so you will have many chances to fake them perfectly.
