The best Among Us players

Among Us may not seem like the most competitive game out there, but with enough practice, some careful timing, and a dash of deductive reasoning, it can be. The best Among Us players show that InnerSloth’s viral hit has more to offer than what’s on the surface, and in this guide, we’re going to count down the 10 players dominating the game.

Although Among Us has lost a bit of its luster since its boon in 2020, the game remains a staple of Twitch and YouTube streamers around the world. The players below are not only the top Among Us players, they’re also some of the most entertaining.

Jeremy “DiguisedToast” Wang is probably the most well-known Among Us player out there, due in part to his involvement in OfflineTV with Pokimane and Michael Reeves, among others. DisguisedToast made a name for himself streaming Hearthstone on Twitch, but nowadays, he spends his time streaming Among Us on Facebook Gaming and posting cuts on his YouTube channel. Like any high-level player, DisguisedToast uses task timing, map awareness, and general game knowledge to gain an edge.

Félix “xQc” Lengyel was a professional Overwatch player for years, but now, he streams almost daily to his 7.4 million Twitch followersAmong Us is a popular title in the rotation, and like DisguisedToast, xQc uses timing and map awareness to get ahead. It’s most exciting when xQc is the imposter, though. He rarely wastes a moment, venting and darting around the map to isolate crew members and take them out. All the better, the moment it comes time to vote, xQc plays the role of an innocent crew member almost perfectly.

Ludwig Anders Ahgren — simply known as “Ludwig” — began his career as a top Super Smash Bros. Melee player before transitioning to streaming in 2018. Unlike the best Fortnite players, there aren’t a lot of Among Us tournaments available to determine the best players. Ludwig gets close, though, placing highly in FaZe Clan’s Among Us InVentAtional and placing first in one of the first Among Us tournaments ever. Accolades usually don’t say much for the best Among Us players, but they do when it comes to Ludwig.

Corpse Husband

Corpse Husband made a name for himself on YouTube, using his signature baritone voice to narrate internet horror stories. That was until he started making Among Us content. Although very popular before streaming Among Us, Corpse Husband found an even larger audience after, with his Among Us videos often hitting the trending page on YouTube and raking in tens of millions of views. What makes Corpse Husband interesting as a narrator also makes him interesting as an Among Us player, with low, smooth defenses every time his crew member legitimacy is brought into question.

Yetiapocalypse — or just “Yeti” — doesn’t have nearly as big of a following as the others on this list, but that’s been changing over the last several months. After taking first place in FaZe Clan’s first official Among Us tournament, Yeti’s platform started to bloom. Now, he streams to a Twitch following of around 55,000 followers and uploads VODs to his YouTube channel (currently sitting around over 25,000 subscribers).

5up is a very new content creator, uploading his first video to YouTube only a few months ago in August 2020. Despite his young online age, 5up has spread like wildfire throughout the Among Us community. Alongside Yeti and Ludwig, 5up competed and placed second in FaZe Clan’s Among Us tournament, catapulting 5up’s YouTube channel to 625,000 subscribers (around 10,000 less than his Twitch channel). 5up is one of the few content creators who’ve made a name for themselves solely off of Among Us, and it’s impressive to see how far he’s come in such a short time.

Trainwreckstv, like Ludwig, is one of the few Among Us players with a list of accolades. In addition to placing in the top 10 of FaZe Clan’s Among Us tournament, Trainwreckstv also placed first in Code Red’s Among Us tournament, taking home a grand prize of $5,000. It’s easy to see why, too. Although great at playing the role of a crewmember, it’s the way Trainwreckstv can craft a defense as an imposter that puts him in the top tier of players. He mainly streams to a Twitch following of just over 1 million, though consistently uploads to his YouTube channel, too.

Charlie “moistcr1tikal” White Jr. (also known as Big Moist and Penguinz0) has been making content for a while, hitting 1 million subscribers on YouTube back in 2014. Now, his YouTube channel has more than 7 million subscribers, with his Twitch channel following close behind (2.3 million followers). Although moistcr1tikal’s Among Us content is some of his most popular, he also streams Rust, Mr. Krabs Overdoses on Ketamine, and chess.

Nogla — fully Daithi De Nogla — often plays with some of the best Among Us players (Ludwig and xQc among them), so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that he’s equally as good at the game. As an imposter, Nogla is able to sneak in kills and defend himself against ejection, and as a crewmember, able to use task timings and map awareness to snuff out the imposter. Unlike the others on this list, Nogla doesn’t have a Twitch channel. However, he uploads videos daily to his YouTube channel, which has 7.2 million subscribers.

Known mainly as an Overwatch streamer, m0xyy started streaming Among Us to his Twitch channel in 2020. As is the case with other top Among Us players, m0xyy is most entertaining as an imposter, but not for the same reasons as the others on this list. Although capable of putting up a defense when it comes time to vote, m0xyy is able to execute kills quickly and efficiently, dotting across the map as if Among Us were a game of a deathmatch. Although he still streams Among Us, m0xyy mostly competes in Overwatch while streaming these days.

The best Starfield mods

Bethesda games have always been a modder's paradise. Part of the reason people have played their older games like Skyrim and Fallout 4 for years after release is the amazing mod support that continues to breathe life into these already massive RPGs. Starfield is the studio's largest and most ambitious game yet, and even before launched was touted as being built with modders in mind. New and creative mods are being made all the time, so keeping up with the rapidly evolving mods is a challenge. We've gone through the top mods currently available to give you a great place to start.

As more mods are created, we will update this list with the most exciting and useful ones available.

The best split-screen games for PC
Four players with guns on a japanese style map.

We all love playing games together. In the early days, that meant passing off the controller back and forth to each get a turn with the game, but now we've reached a point where most games offer true simultaneous multiplayer modes, if not fully cooperative campaigns. For the most part, the concept of playing split-screen games has been firmly a console-only feature. This made sense since they were designed for multiple controllers, and to be played in more communal spaces like living rooms and on couches. PCs, on the other hand, are typically played, well, solo at a desk.

That assumption is not as cut and dry as it used to be. PCs are no longer isolated to corners of the house and are easier than ever to hook up to normal TVs and be played in the same environment as consoles. It would make no sense for PC players to miss out on being able to play a game in split-screen with a friend just because they're playing on that specific platform, so it's great to see more and more games supporting this option. Not all games have come around yet, though, and split-screen is even becoming less common on consoles as well, so hunting down some quality two-player computer games can be a chore. Instead, feel free to screen peak at our list of the best split-screen games for PC.
