A quick note about custom skins in Among Us
That was a lot of work to get them up and running, but it should be worth it if you’ve found some new skins you wanted to try. One thing you should remember is that these custom skins are only visible to players who have the mod, unlike the skins which you can purchase through Steam or the App Store.
These skins are simply a way for you to personalize your game of Among Us.Published 16 Oct 2020, 20:04 IST
