Normal gaming stuff, right?

Whether you're wondering what "GG", "AFK", or "SUS" means, we've got you covered.

"GG" Meaning

The term "GG" isn't exclusive to Among Us in the slightest. It's been around almost as long as online games have.

To put it plainly, "GG" means Good Game. It's often used towards the end of a match to thank the other players.

However, it can also be used sarcastically... If you're wrongly being voted as the Imposter, or if you're talking with the rest of the ghosts after dying.

"AFK" Meaning

"AFK" is one of the more functional terms used in Among Us and it can be found across the board as well.

It stands for "Away From Keyboard" and is useful for obvious reasons.

If someone is calling you out, or asking why you're suspiciously failing tasks, a simple "AFK" could solve that problem.

It can also be used as a warning to those in your lobby, preemptively dealing with any queries about your whereabouts in-game.

"Sus" Meaning

"Sus" is the one term you might not see so often in other games, but everywhere in Among Us.

It stands for "Suspicious" and can be used in a variety of ways.

Someone can be "acting Sus", you can call out someone as "Sus", or you can comment on an in-game event that "seems kinda Sus".
