Guide for Among Us – All information about map THE SKELD

This guide will help novice players learn basic info for experienced players to come up with some new tricks.



While surfing different guides, I found a list of things you need to know about a map. And decided that it would be cool to create a full list of info about map THE SKELD. Using this info, you will be able to catch impostors better and better pretend as an impostor. Let’s go!


Let’s start with the simplest – map of the area.

People spawn in the cafeteria around the table with a button for emergency meetings.

One step tasks

When you finish one of these tasks, the taskbar moves. Now moving to task themselves:

Fix wiring. Consists of 3 steps in these rooms: electrical, storage, admin, navigation, cafeteria, security. They always go in this order. For example, you will never fix the wiring in storage after fixing it in the admin. Takes around 5 seconds (but some people manage to do it faster). No animation

Monitoring panels

You can use these panels to monitor activity on the ship, and you are likely to found some clues. There are two such panels on this map.

[60cc572010902]Admin panel. In the admin room. With this, you can check how many people are there in each room.

NOTE 1. Corpses count as people as well, so if someone is staying for too long is some room, they are probably dead

NOTE 2. Impostors hiding in vents count as people as well, so if someone disappears in one room and someone appears in another room at the same moment, you can be 99% sure that this is venting.

Security cams. Insecurity. When someone (except ghosts) is using cams right now, all cams are blinking red. Here you can see which camera shows which area:

Vents system

Impostors can use vents to hide, hunt, or get to someplace faster. Here is the map of all vents in The Skeld

To distract the crew from doing tasks or avert attention from their crimes, Impostors can use various sabotages
img 5fa80e2662f34 wpgameplay com
Close doors. Close all doors in a room for 10 seconds (cooldown is 17 seconds after closing or 7 seconds after opening again). You can close several doors simultaneously and use right after using others sabotages (while they are on cooldown)

Oxygen depleted. If not fixed and nobody reported in 30 seconds, the crew will lose. To fix, you have to enter 2 5-digit codes, one in admin, one in o2.

Reactor meltdown. If not fixed and nobody reported in 30 seconds, the crew will lose. To fix, you have to press and hold two hand readers in the reactor simultaneously. One hand reader is on top, and one is on the bottom of the reactor.

Lights out. Until fixed, the crew’s vision will be 5 times worse (you are nearly blind). To fix, you have to turn on switches. This panel is the same for everyone, so you may interfere with other people who fix this sabotage (or an impostor who is making worse on purpose).

Comms sabotaged. Until fixed, you can’t see your task list, taskbar, and use monitoring panels.

NOTE: During sabotages (except closed doors), you can’t call an emergency meeting


I hope this guide has helped you, or at least it was interesting to read and probably learn something new. If I have missed something or made a grammar or any other error, please let me know; we will finish this guide together.

If this guide has a good rating and many positive comments, I will make the same guide for other maps. And create another guide with interesting tactics, strategies, tips, and tricks.

Thank you for your attention!
