A new new update has arrived Between us, adds brand new special roles for both crew members and impostors. These new roles come with their own unique rules and mechanics, bringing a new layer to the popular multiplayer mystery game. One of these roles is Guardian.
Like the other new roles, players can place odds on a Guardian Angel appearing before the start of the game Between us in the options of the lobby. However, this role will only be assigned after the first crew member is killed, with that deceased crewmate being given the role of Guardian Angel. This player’s main ability is to save other teammates from being killed by impostors.
Not like other new Between us role, the identity of the Guardian Angel player is made public through the voting screen. Dead players serving as Guardian Angels will have a small winged icon next to their name, indicating their new role.
Become a guardian angel among us
As said before, players can become Guardian Angels if they are the first crew member to be killed. They can be killed with an Imposter or ejected. By default, no player will become a Patronus unless the option for a role is enabled in the lobby’s preferences. The Guardian Angel phantom has a different appearance from the other ghosts, instead appearing with large angel wings flapping on its back as they hover around the map.
Through Between us lobby selection, the spawn rate of a Guardian Angel as well as the maximum number of Guardian Angels can be changed. If there are multiple Guardian Angels, the crew members selected for the role will proceed in death order starting from the first until the set maximum number is reached.
Protect crew members
Guardian Angels have access to an exclusive ability called Protect. This is what allows them to save other teammates from being killed by impostors. It appears as a skill button similar to the kill option for the Impostor.
When using Protect, it will create a shield around any nearby players. As long as this shield is active, the protected player cannot be killed by an impostor. This shield can last from 5 to 30 seconds, depending on the lobby’s settings. The cooldown for this skill can range from 35 to 120 seconds, again depending on the lobby’s settings. Another lobby setting that can be switched around is the ability for impostors to see the shield or not.
When a player is protected from being killed, a message will appear on the voting screen before the discussion begins. This can be used to get players thinking about times when a failed attack might have occurred.
