LAST STEP(optional): Increase the performance of Among Us on your PC

This is a vital part if you want Among Us to run smoothly on your PC. What we want to do here is to enable VT. Enabling VT allows the emulator and Among Us to use more of our CPU, GPU, RAM to run our favorite games and apps smoothly. Below you can find step by step instructions on how to enable VT on your computer:

  • Before you restart your computer, make sure you know the KEY that gets you to bios. Usually F2 or Del, but sometimes it’s different from brand to brand, so the best way to find it is to google “How to access Bios X motherboard/Laptop/Prebuilt.” Once you know which KEY will get you into BIOS, then move on to the next step.
  • Restart your computer and press that KEY repeatedly as soon as your computer turns off and starts booting again.
  • Now start looking for the Virtualization Technology option. Most of the time, it is named: Intel(R) Virtualization Technology, Virtualization, Virtual, VT-X, or SVM, and you’ll find it in the processor configuration settings of your BIOS.
  • If you are having a hard time finding it, you can search on google where the VT setting is located in your BIOS.
  • Once you enable it, make sure to save the settings and exit BIOS.
  • Open up LDPlayer and start playing Among Us. You should now notice a significant difference in the performance of the game.
  • Now you are ready to start playing Among Us on your PC without having to worry about lags, fps drops, or unexpected errors and terminations of the game.

Other useful tools for Among Us

NordVPN

NordVPN supported countries and cities

NordVPN can be really useful for players who have their IP banned from a specific game and cannot play it. Another reason would be to join a game that’s banned in your country, and you have no other way of playing it. While these are the most common reasons someone would want to use a VPN while playing, in some instances, using a VPN might even reduce or at least stabilize your ping and overall connection while also protecting your data.

I would not suggest you use a free VPN because there is a high chance that your data is going public after some time. Instead, you can use NordVPN, one of the best-paid VPN services out there with many years in the business. You get an encrypted connection with thousands of servers available, as well as a private proxy that is used only by you(This is exactly what you need when gaming). There is no data or bandwidth limit, so you can use it for streaming, downloading,

With all that being said, the last thing I want to mention is its price, which is around $4 per month, which makes it one of the cheapest VPN services in the market.

Controller

There are many games that you can have a better experience while playing with a controller, and also there are many people who prefer playing with a controller instead of a mouse and keyboard. If any of these apply to you, you can consider getting the Elite Series 2 Controller Modded which is one of the best controllers ever and will give you an amazing feeling when using it.

Storage

If you want your mobile games and apps and particularly Among Us, to load faster on your PC, then you’ll need an SSD. If you don’t have one, then take a look at the WD_Black 500GB and SAMSUNG 870 EVO
