Role mods for Among Us have gained an impressive amount of traction in the world of online streaming, and, though many of these mods are exclusive to content creators, some have made it to the broader community. Popular role mods introduce special jobs for crewmates to complete in addition to their regular tasks, often including a new ability that empowers them against the Impostors. These mods have included roles like the Sheriff, who has the ability to kill Impostors, the Medic, who can revive a dead crewmate before the body is reported, and Jester, who tries to purposely get ejected to win the game. Now, a new mod by NotHunter101, the Extra Roles Mod, combines adds four familiar crewmate roles into a single game: Medic, Officer, Engineer, and Joker.
This mod is available for public download and works on the official InnerSloth servers, provided all players have it installed in their game files. The catch, of course, is that it will only work for PC players; mobile and Switch users won’t be able to download it. Introducing crewmate roles can be a fun way to shake up the traditional Among Us formula while players wait for the next updates. Here’s how to download, install, and play the Extra Roles Mod for Among Us.
To get the Extra Roles Mod, players will need to complete the following steps:
NotHunter101 added a video tutorial, linked below, to help players with installation.
Players can also join the Discord Server for the mod to get technical support and report any bugs.
The Extra Roles mod brings four roles that will be randomly assigned to crewmates every game. Most of these roles function similarly to their standalone role mod versions:
The rest of the gameplay in this mod mirrors the classic version of Among Us.
The mod comes with some default settings that lobby hosts can tweak if they prefer. In the default settings, all role identities are hidden from other players, but players will be able to see the player the Medic has shielded, and the shielded player will hear a noise indicating any time another player has tried (and failed) to kill them while under protection. The default settings also allow the Joker to be killed by the Officer without repercussion, preventing that character from winning the game.
Other default settings include a five-second timeframe from the moment a character is killed for the medic to open the report and see the name of the killer and a twenty-second timeframe for them to see the color type (lighter or darker hue) of the killer. In addition, the default settings ensure every game will include all four roles. Players can change any of these settings to suit their group’s play styles and make the game more or less challenging.
Players may need to start a non-official server if the InnerSloth official servers’ anti-cheat software prevents the use of some features in the mod. There are reimgs available on the mod page to help players get started.
Among Us is available for Nintendo Switch, PC, iOS, and Android.
