There’s one big problem with finding fun Among Us mods you can actually play. There are hundreds of them out there, with YouTube videos with millions of views.
But if you try to find download links for those mods, you’re out of luck. Why? Because most of the mods with great videos on YouTube are for private use only.
In this article, you’ll see the top Among Us mods you can actually download and play.
What is Among Us?
Among Us has a massive base of devoted fans who love the game’s mind-bending challenge. It’s a super-fun survival battle where you have to discover Impostors and vote them off your spaceship. Mods make an already-great game 10x more fun, because they switch things up in warped ways and add new roles for your players.
For instance, you can become a Sheriff who can kill without voting, play on a ship where zombies try to infect the crew, or play in a spooky haunted house instead of a spaceship. That’s all possible with the 20 great game mods below.
1. Sheriff Among Us mod
There’s a new sheriff in town, and he’s wearing a spacesuit. The Among Us Sheriff
mod lets one crewmember be the local law. The sheriff has a kill button, and can kill impostors without waiting for a team vote. But there’s only one problem. Try to kill an innocent player, and you’ll die instead.
2. Town of Impostors Among Us mod
What if a pair of crewmembers on your ship had their own special superpowers? That’s what you’ll get in the awesome Town of Impostors Among Us
You’ll have an impostor, of course, but also a Doctor who can revive the dead and a Sheriff who can kill impostors. It’s fun, but not too complex, making for one of the cleanest mods on the web.
3. Skeld Among Us mod
This is definitely one of the best Among Us
mods you can get your hands on, with tons of new game modes. For instance, the Identity Crisis
mode makes everyone change their identity at every meeting. A Zombie
mode makes one player try to infect all the others. There are 11 nutty game modes
4. The Haunted Mansion Among Us mod
So spooky! This time you’re not on a spaceship. Instead, you’re in a haunted house complete with candlelight, cobwebs, hard-to-find light switches, and tombstones with actual skulls on them. This is kind of like living a mystery in a creepy movie, thanks to the high-quality worldbuilding of The Haunted Mansion Among Us
5. Cursed Among Us mod
In this absolutely bonkers Among Us
mod, some players are Cursed.
Those players have four sneaky abilities. They can curse the emergency button to eject players who use it, curse dead bodies and make them kill other players, curse tasks, and curse the vents so they’ll eat Impostors.
6. Cmds Roles Among Us mod
If you’re looking for a metric ton of new roles for your Among Us
gameplay, look no further. The Cmds Roles Among Us
mod has roles for Hacker, Reverse Jester, Ninja, Seer, Survivor, Curser, Electrician, Tracker, Helper, Teleporter,
and dozens of others. There are a lot of roles in this mod.
7. Vampy Among Us mod
This mod is super fun. The Impostors are vampires
and will suck your blood dry. The thing is, you’ve all got little bat ears, so who’s the actual bloodsucker? You can use Bloodrush
mode to spy on the crewmembers, kill, and even turn into a bat and fly between rooms. “I vant to vote you out!”
8. Town of Us Among Us mod
If you want a lot
going on in your Among Us
games, try the Town of Us
mod. There are tons of roles (maybe too many?) to learn and try. There’s a Mayor, who can save up their votes and use them all at once, and the Lovers, who win the game if they both make the final three. Plus, you get a Sheriff, Engineer, Seer, Child, Spy, and 7 other roles with special powers.
9. Extra Roles Among Us mod
Very similar to the Town of Us Among Us
mod, the Extra Roles
mod has tons of additional roles, including the now-familiar Sheriff and Engineer roles, a Medic who can protect other players, and so many others. This mod’s huge selection of roles makes the gameplay equally chaotic and fun.
10. Zombies Among Us mod
Brains! Instead of Impostors,
you’ll face ghoulish zombies eager to feast on your flesh. You’ll need to mow them all down with high-powered laser fire. The Zombies Among Us mod
is a totally intense mod where you’ll pile up bodies that try to overwhelm your ship. It’s so much fun, especially if you survive.
11. Love Couple Among Us mod
From the Town of Us Among Us
mod, the lovers win by being one of the last three players alive. But beware! If one lover is killed, the other dies, too. The lovers actually help the Impostor as they battle to survive. But what if one lover is an Impostor?
That’s when the real fun begins in the Love Couple Among Us
12. ColorsPlus Among Us mod
What would happen if the color of your character randomly changed every 15 seconds? That would make it really hard to keep track of gameplay, wouldn’t it? The ColorsPlus Among Us
mod creates some seriously hilarious shenanigans as you struggle to figure out who’s who. There are also no names above the players’ heads. What???
13. ExtraHats Among Us mod
Need more hats? The ExtraHats
mod adds more than 30 new hats to the game. There’s a dinosaur hat, dog hat, Batman hat, and Yoda hat, to name just a few. Why do you need hats in Among Us?
Maybe your head is cold. You can even run around with a bike on your head or a vent on your back.
14. Brawl Stars Map Among Us mod
This is a wacky new Among Us
map with all your favorite Brawl Stars
rooms and items, like gems, safes, and more. This map looks a lot like a map from your favorite game, with tasks that are all Brawl Stars-
15. 100 Players Among Us mod
Would it be fun to play Among Us
with 100 players
? Of course it would! The Impostors’
usernames are hidden, so you won’t know who you’re looking for in the midst of all the chaos. You can check for an Impostor every minute, but bring a notepad so you can keep track of who you’ve cleared.
16. Mod Manager Among Us mod
What the heck are you going to do with all these mods? Play them, of course! But how do you switch between your mods and manage them without an Among Us mod manager
? This manager lets you switch and easily keep track of all your mods, sans sus.
17. Crewmates With Hands! Among Us mod
You know you don’t have hands in Among Us.
But not in the Crewmates with hands!
mod. Does this change the way you play the game? Not at all! But the crewmembers now have little orb-like hands. This is a goofy mod for sure, but it’s fun to see what spacemen look like when they can actually pinch each other.
18. Freekpack Mod Return Among Us mod
” is right with this Among Us mod
. This one lets you add an orange crewmate statue, a Luigi hat from the Mario Bros.
universe, a blue hat (scandalous!) and even a COVID-19 hat! There’s also a goofy Henry Stickmin face for your crewmember, along with other crazy fun.
19. Crewbunny Among Us mod
Would Among Us
be more fun if you played it with bunnies instead of spacemen? Who knows? You, that’s who, when you download and play the incredibly weird Crewbunny Among Us
There aren’t any special powers to explore with this mod. It just makes you look like you’ve got a carrot craving and a hop in your pants.
20. Minecraft Among Us Mod
is a massively fun game. So is Minecraft.
Why not merge them? This is one of the most ridiculous mods available, where you chop down trees and get wood, mine and get stone, make tools, and build things, all while dodging the impostor. You can’t actually download this one, but the video is too fun not to include.
