To prove it, just look at all the alien-like Teletubbies you see all over social media. More than 86 million users have downloaded the app. It’s a fun, interactive multiplayer game wherein some white lies and deceit can earn your crew the winning title.
There are a few tricks to help you identify your team or an impostor, as you can decorate their heads with some fun customized headgear and Christmas hats. Read on to see how easy it is to trick your way into an early Christmas hat giveaway.
Tricking your device into giving you free hats
It’s good to remember that you’re still in charge of your PC or phone, and by manipulating the date and time, you can have some early Christmas-hat fun online. “All’s fair in love and mobile game war” should become a new proverb when you take these easy steps to get free Christmas hats.
- Go to Settings on your device (mobile or PC)
- Switch the automatic time update feature OFF
- Manually change the date to December 24, 2020
- Change your device time to 12:15 a.m. or p.m.
- Open the Among Us game and head over to Customize
- You’ll find a variety of festive season hats from which to choose
It’s as easy as that to be able to tap into some festive season accessories and start customizing your friends and foes in Among Us.
Do I need to keep my date like this?
The best part of getting this feature is that you can set your time and date back to automatic update once you’ve activated the free hats feature. You won’t lose the accessories in the game.
Prepare for Christmas in Among Us
You can use this clever trick to surprise your crew with early Christmas hats gifts this year.
