The game may seem simple at first glance; however, "Among Us" is a game that requires immense skill and technique to thrive, especially when playing as the ruthless killer, an Impostor. Marinating is one cunning tactic that proves useful amidst the countless more in "Among Us."
How to Marinate on 'Among Us?'
Marinating on "Among Us" can happen on occasions where one is an impostor or a crewmate. The title focuses on "gut feeling," especially during the game's early moments when there are many players and little evidence to catch the impostor.
Anyone can "marinate" Among Us, and it is as simple as saying flowery things about another player to shift the group's blame to a new character. For example, a player could say, "Red is with me the whole time and we were just doing our tasks when the killings happened."
Red could be any random player or a fellow impostor to hide amidst the crewmates. Marinating can also be done by crewmates defending fellow crewmates who are innocent of the killings that occurred throughout the game.
