Among Us Is Getting A Report and Ban System To Deal With Hackers

Lloyd Coombes

There's always someone who has to ruin it for everybody.

Among Us, Innersloth's ridiculously popular PC and mobile title, has become a runaway success in recent months.

The four-to-ten player multiplayer game has players trying to survive in space, all while a cheeky imposter (often more than one), work to undo all of their hard work and avoid detection.

That popularity, though, has bought in the wrong kinds of players, but the developer has a way to weed them out. 

Among Us Cheaters

Irritatingly, players have begun hacking the game, changing player's names or simply killing everyone else.

That ruins the fun for everyone, but the team at InnerSloth are taking a leaf out of other popular online games to deal with it.

Among Us will soon offer an account requirement and a reporting system, allowing players to report bad eggs.

This will be linked to a ban system which could see players locked out entirely.

While the game is cheap as chips and could see players jump straight back in anyway, we'd love to see the devs use Fall Guys' method of dealing with cheaters.

In Mediatonic's game, the developers moved cheaters onto their own separate server and had them play against each other for maximum frustration.
