Among Us really does like to celebrate events like Halloween, but did you know that the developers have done the same thing with Christmas? Yes, that’s right, players are also able to get some festive hats for their character to celebrate the holidays in the game. Now I bet you’re wondering how to get these Christmas hats, well here is how you do it.
How to Get Christmas Hats in Among Us
Firstly, Christmas hats in Among Us are given out to players for free when playing at any time during the month of December. Unfortunately, these hats go away after December has finished.
At the moment, players on mobile will have to buy these hats via the in-game store. This can be found in the main menu of the game, with the Christmas hats being in a bundle that costs $3.
However on PC, you can get the holiday hats for free and without it being December, as there’s a quick trick you can use. To begin getting the Christmas hats, you must close Among Us and then access your time and date settings in your PC’s general settings. Once you are on this, change your device’s date to Dec. 24, 2019.
When this is done, relaunch the game and start up a private match. When in the pre-lobby to your hosted game, go to the laptop. You should see multiple tabs, click on Hats if you’re not on it already. Once on the hats tab, you should be greeted with all the festive headwear.
There are a total of eight different Christmas hats to choose from. These include a Santa hat, elf ears, and even a tiny snowman. Now simply put on your hat and you’re ready to spread Christmas cheer as you argue about who the Imposter is in your game.
