The unique game known as Among Us was actually designed for mobile controls. It means it will be needed for you to switch to keyboard controls if you are playing on a PC where it is really popular. You might want to do it for much more precision. By using a keyboard, it would be easy for you to control movement and actions. Unfortunately, there is no way for you to change the keybinds just yet officially. However, there is an alternative for you.
Switching to the keyboard is actually good for the players as they will get advantages from it. If you are one of the players, there is no need for you to be so fast with the mouse. All that you have to do is to make your fingers right at the keys and everything will be ready to announce an Emergency Meeting and start typing.
How do you switch to the keyboard controls? Apparently, the controls in Among Us are using a mouse to be able to match the touchscreen of mobile devices. If you want to make performing actions faster, you are recommended to swap to the keyboard instead. If you are interested in trying it, the first thing that you have to do is to go to Settings. After that, choose Mouse + Keyboard. Actually, you are still allowed to use the mouse. However, this setting adds keyboard controls. As for the controls, they are as follows:
- WASD / Arrow Keys: Movement
- E / Space: Use, sabotage, or vent
- Tab: Map
- Q: Kill
- R: Report
- Esc: Exit terminal
- Alt + enter: Fullscreen
How about changing the keyboard? What should you do to be able to do that? Unfortunately, there is no way for you to change keybinding in this game officially, at least until the patch arrives. The good news is that there are a few programs that can be used to change controls. If you are curious about such programs, one of the most recommended is called AutoHotKey. If you want to use this, you have to know that you should know about scripting. Here is the link to get the AutoHotKey: https://www.autohotkey.com/.
After downloading the AutoHotKey, the next thing that you will need to do is to make an .ahk file. Then, fill in the following text:
#IfWinActive, Among Us
On the autoHotKey, WASD are known as the movement keys. Q is known as the kill or attack key. E is used. Feel free to swap the keys with any settings that you want to easily make custom keybinding. Please go to link here if you want to find the full list of the key names.
Once again, the game named Among Us was intended for mobile. As the time passed, it expanded to include the PC. However, there are some exceptions to playing on a Chromebook. If you want to play this game on Chromebook, first of all, you will have to download the game. If you want to install it, administrator privileges are needed. To be able to download the Android app like Among Us to your laptop, go to the Google Play Store.
Before anything, it should be noted that not every Chromebook can download it. It means it is only possible for some Chromebooks. Everything depends on the model of the Chromebook. To check if your Chromebook is included in the list of the one that can support Android apps, please go to link here.
If the Chromebook that you have is included on the list, you can follow the following guide to start playing:
- The first thing that you should do is to go to the Google Play Store in your Chromebook settings.
- When you are there, sign in. Skip this step if you have done it already.
- Then, enter “Among Us” in the search bar for the store.
- After that, choose the game icon.
- Lastly, it is time for you to install the game.
Keep in mind that there is no way for you to play Among Us this way if your Chromebook is not enabled to use Android apps.
Talking about how to play Among Us on Chromebook with WASD, one thing that you have to take note of is the fact that it is a game that is based on Android. This basically means it is optimized for a touchscreen. For anyone who downloads the game from the Google Play Store, you will only get a game that is limited to touchpad or gamepad use. If you are wondering about it, the reason is because the Google app counts as a mobile version. In case you are still finding out how to move within this game easily, you might want to try to change the settings. Here is the guide to follow if you want to try it:
- Firstly, click on the Setting gear icon from the main screen menu.
- After clicking it, choose Touch that is located under the Controls heading.
- When you are done, back out of the menu.
For your information, touch controls do not work the same way as when you are playing a game like Among Us on a PC. As the alternative to using the touchscreen to move the way that you would on your phone, a mouse click can be used. Every click can act like a tap on the screen and your character will walk to that location. While it is not really known as the WASD movement, it is still better than dragging a joystick to make your character walk.
