Among Us costumes: how to unlock seasonal skins and outfits

Want to dress to impress? Glam-up your alarmingly death-prone spaceman with these free Among Us hats, available right now

Want to know how to unlock Among Us costumes and skins? There are a wonderful array of Among Us free hats and accessories available, which adorn your little space bean as they cavort through the corridors of your chosen Among Us map – either on their way to a gruesome death, or in search of a hapless victim.

Interacting with the laptop in an Among Us lobby allows you to change your character’s colour, skin, and hat. For obvious reasons, players can’t share duplicate colours, but you’re free to choose any combination of hats and skins you like.

If you’re relatively new to the social deduction game, and you’ve noticed that some of your spacefaring buddies are sporting Among Us skins that you don’t have access to, you may be missing a few Among Us seasonal outfits, namely, the Among Us Christmas and Halloween hats. Similarly, if you’re playing on a new PC, your Among Us unlocks don’t carry across. Fortunately, you don’t have to wait until the holidays roll around again to access these hats – here’s how to unlock seasonal Among Us costumes early.

Among Us Halloween hats

Halloween hats are traditionally unlocked automatically by logging into Among Us in the weeks before Halloween. If you can’t wait that long, though, simply open your PC’s date and time settings, and change the date to October 31st.

After launching Among Us, create a game and head over to the laptop, where you’ll see your new Among Us Halloween hats – then you can change your PC’s date back and enjoy your spooky skins a few months early.

The Among Us Halloween hats are:

  • Cat Head
  • Bat Ears
  • Devil Horns
  • Mohawk
  • Pumpkin
  • Paper Bag
  • Witch Hat
  • Wolf Ears
  • Pirate Hat
  • Plague Doctor Mask
  • Machete Hat
  • Hockey Mask

Among Us Christmas hats

Nothing says ‘sus’ quite like sporting a Santa hat in the middle of summer. Among Us Christmas hats become widely available to players in the weeks before December 25th.

But if you’re itching to don a pair of antlers, skip around the cafeteria with a Christmas tree on your head, or run through wintery Polus with a snowman perched atop your bonce right now, the good news is that you’re able to unlock them early by fiddling with your PC’s settings. Simply set your PC’s date to December 24th, launch the game, join a lobby, and you’ll see all the Among Us Christmas hats available to equip.

The Among Us Christmas hats are:

  • Snowman
  • Reindeer
  • Garland Hat
  • Christmas Hat
  • Christmas Tree
  • Present
  • Candy Cane Hat
  • Elf Hat
