Among us, a mobile and PC game in which players play the role of suitable Crewmates and Impostor to win. To win, Crewmates must finish multiple tasks and criminals must not kill each other without revealing their true identities. If you are looking for a really fun group of players, especially good players and you can play countless games against them.
We use a very general management scheme. Both versions have interchangeable controls, but most of the PC versions have simple WASD motion controls and a few keyboard shortcuts to connect with the world, while the mobile version has more screen buttons that communicate with a virtual joystick for navigation.
If you use BlueStacks to play the mobile version on your computer, you can use the same user-friendly controls as the PC version to use the free version of your game on your PC without having to buy.
BlueStacks settings overview
Bluestacks is the only platform that provides this feature, and it comes to be a gamepad support. Playing this amazingly incomplete live game on your computer allows you to experience the thrill of managing and more comfort than ever before. In this article I will show you how to solve this problem.
Although we have a PC and mobile game, it does not support any gamepad by default. However, if you use BlueStacks to play games on your PC, you can now get great controller support with any compatible gamepad and full functionality with Scaled, Mira HQ and Polus cards.
You must first have a suitable controller to enable this feature. Not limited to a few controller brands supported by BlueStacks:
- Microsoft Xbox One controllers
- PlayStation 4 Controllers (Dualshock 4)
Once of these is done you are ready to go. Follow these steps to truly provide supervisor support among us:
1. Connect the controller to a USB port and enable Bluestacks.
2. In the app player settings menu, go to the Game control settings tab and enable.
3. Please run Among Us and make sure the game controls are set to Joystick.
4. Select Joystick from the drop-down menu at the top of the BlueStacks game guide panel.
Many of these options allow you to play the company with the gamepad.

Among Us controller tips
Now that you’ve activated the gamepad control Among Us, the first thing you’ll notice is that navigating the map is great. Instead of awkward walking with a virtual joystick or stuttering and moving the WASD buttons, you can control your character more perfectly with a real joystick.
If you want to get to your goal slowly and carefully instead of running with a joystick, you can also adjust the speed of the character. Of course, when it comes to playing as comfortably as possible, the controller is king and it really important.
Here are some tips and tricks to play with controllers on Bluestacks:
Completing tasks with gamepad
This is a game that can be played with the keyboard and mouse, so you can’t do it with the traditional themed gamepad control. However, you can use the controller for various activities to unlock and control the mouse cursor by pressing the Start button and using the left bar.
Here’s how it works:
- Walk over to the task’s panel and tap X/A to interact.
- Press Start/Options to unlock the cursor.
- Move the cursor with the left stick and use the X/A button to “click” on the screen and complete the task.
- Press Start/Options once you’re finished to lock the cursor and switch back to moving your character.
Keep an eye out
Regardless of the type of surveillance, there are times when you need to be aware of your surroundings so as not to get caught up in long expeditions. With the help of the controller you can easily exit any activity by turning the joystick in any direction and seeing someone approaching.
This will force your character to stop working and run away, so this is ideal when you need to run fast. If you do not block the cursor by pressing the Start / Options button before running, you will move the mouse cursor instead of the characters.
Use controller and mouse for the best results
The controller provides maximum flexibility in most cases but there are some activities that go beyond functionality. When precision and speed are required, the mouse is the best choice. It is especially recommended to use the mouse in activities such as card throwing. This is not possible with the controller, especially since the cursor does not move fast enough to move properly card through the reader.
The best way for Among Us to play with the gamepad is to keep the mouse and keyboard separate on the computer. This way, you can move the mouse faster if you need to get the most flexibility and get things done faster. You’ll always need a keyboard to send texts to other players during an emergency session, so you’ll need to play on a PC. Depending on the situation, it is best to switch between the controller and the mouse.
But playing “in the middle” with the gamepad was very comfortable and fun for Among Us. This has helped improve the overall experience of this great game, especially when used in conjunction with other environments. You can also use this feature to play Among Us on PC using Bluestacks.
Downloads to your computer can be played for free on your desktop using emulators such as LDPlayer or BlueStacks. But if you have money to spend, it’s always a good idea to pay to play steam to support the developers’ efforts.
To get the best possible movement while playing Among Us, please update to BlueStacks version 220.127.116.111 or above.
