It’s an exciting time for those deep into Among Us (or looking to get back into the game) since the new Airship map dropped just last week. The wildly popular social deduction game blew up relatively recently, and while it has sustained a massive following, it’s been thriving off of three different maps for quite some time. The Airship affords the game a fresh experience for longtime players not just because it’s new but also because it asks you to play quite differently from older maps.
It’s the largest map so far, but its tight corridors and handful of one-way paths make it a challenge to navigate. It’s so big and labyrinthine that the game lets players choose one of three spawn points when they start a round in the match. Understanding what’s around each of the spawn points becomes part of your strategy for both crewmates and imposters, and uncovering those intricacies has made figuring out the Airship so much fun.
A key thing to notice about the map’s spawn points is that when they’re represented on screen for selection, the background of the icon shows you which part of the map it’s in–eventually, you’ll be familiar with the names and locations of these rooms, but for shorthand purposes, they’re also ordered in a way that’s indicative of their general location (left, middle, right). Crewmates should have tasks nearby right when the match starts, but as the match progresses, you’ll want to keep in mind where your remaining tasks are.
