Hugely popular YouTuber Mr Beast, known for his grand-scale videos, has apparently achieved a 100 player game of Among Us, something previously thought impossible in the base game.
Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson is known for taking everything to the next level, and that ability has scored him a whopping 45 million subscribers on his main channel, with over 7.4 billion views on his videos collectively.
He also has an additional 9.2 million subscribers on his gaming channel, where he does crazy gaming challenges with his friends, well-known YouTubers and his subscribers, frequenting games such as Minecraft and GTA 5.
Naturally, Jimmy has jumped on the latest craze to sweep the internet; Among Us. Among Us was released in 2018, but found a new lease of life years later when it rose through the ranks on Twitch.
Currently, the lobby can hold no greater than ten people. However many have considered how amazing it would be to have more players in a single game, and one animation made by the Pixel Kingdom depicting what it would be like to have 100 players in the game has garnered an insane 85,000,000 views on YouTube, so clearly the feature is in high demand.
If there’s anyone to make it happen in reality, it’s Mr Beast. He teased a 100 player lobby on Twitter, announcing the upcoming video on Friday, October 16, though was met with slight scepticism.
It seems that despite many doubts, Mr Beast actually managed to achieve the seemingly impossible feat, as the final video showed a fully operational 100 player lobby of Among Us. There are some minor differences to the original game, but the resemblance is absolutely uncanny.
This video saw various members of Mr Beast’s team attempting to kill all of the 100 players in the lobby, without the other players figuring out which usernames they were going by, thereby establishing them as the imposter.
While it’s not totally clear how exactly he managed the feat, many have speculated that Mr Beast and his team have built their own version of Among Us from scratch, which allows a lobby with many more players than is possible in the actual game, judging by the minor differences.
It’s a custom game he built himself I assume

At the end of the video, Jimmy asked fans to “comment what you want us to do next in Among Us” as “we can do anything,” teasing even crazier content relating to the hugely popular game further down the line.
Mr Beast’s video managed to garner over 6.5 million views on the video within less than 24 hours of it being posted, with people excited to see the results of the ambitious gaming video.
