In Among Us, there is a real charm in seeing your character dressed up in a variety of hats and masks. Much like Fall Guys, the simplistic bean-like designs complement the dress-up aspect of online gaming perfectly. One classic video game mask which players of Among Us may wish to acquire is a Plague Mask. This is a strange sort of bird-like ensemble worn by doctors during the Back Death in medieval Europe.
How to Get the Plague Mask
In Among Us, the Plague Mask (which is actually considered a hat in-game) is part of a Halloween set of outfits. The Halloween set comes around in-game every October for a limited time. From October 11-31, the entirety of the Halloween set, including the Plague Mask will be available on both PC and mobile.
PC users will have access to the entire set for free. The free-to-play mobile users, however, will have to pay anywhere between $0.99 and 2.99 for each item in the set. These hats and masks can be purchased or equipped from the computer terminal before each new game starts.
Players willing to wait for the Plague Mask can simply do so. Once October comes around the entire set, including the Plague Mask will be theirs to own.
For those of you who aren’t patient enough to wait until mid-October, there is another way to cheat the game into giving you the Plague Mask.
The first thing players will need to do is set the date and time on their Among Us system of choice. For those playing on the PC, the date and time can be adjusted in the taskbar. Those playing on their phones can alter the date and times in their phone’s settings section. What you want to do is set the date and time to exactly 11:59 pm on Oct. 10, 2019.
Make sure the option to set time automatically online has been turned off before you do this. If you don’t, your phone/PC will automatically revert any changes made once players are back online. Once those setting are off, you’ll be free to manually set the date and time,
Once you have done this, wait until the clock hits midnight in-game and start a public match. Immediately quit out of said match, start up a new game and open the computer.
You should be able to see the Halloween Hats and masks in the computer menu, including the Plague Mask. Equip the mask and play the round dress up as a fashionable medieval doctor.
