    6:20 btw MatPat not the best advice, since often when part of a task with multiple steps is done, the taskbar doesn't go up because there's another component elsewhere on the map. So this leads to false accusations on crewmates who were in fact completing a task.

    A 1000 IQ tip: common tasks are tasks everyome has. One for example, is Swipe card and Fix Wiring in The Skeld. If any Impostor fakes a common task You don’t have yourself, the are a garentee to be an Impostor. One time, no one died and i saw purple faking card swipe when we all had fix wiring, and no one died yet. I called emergency meeting and purple was voted out. One Impostor remains. Just a nice tip to keep in mind.

    6:25 bro the task bar only goes up on the last step. Say for example, fix wiring, you have to do the last, third wiring for the bar to go up. Same thing for download, and empty shutes and empy garbage, and also for divert power.

    The Impostor isn't actually evil the Impostor owns the skeld but the crewmates are trying to steal the ship and they succeeded and brought the ship to HQ and then the Impostor gets revenge and kills the crewmates with one left alerting everyone through comms on MiraHQ And then goes to polus that had the crewmates that they contacted but the Impostor/the owner of the skeld Followed the crewmate to polus.

    There were 3 of us left, and I was the Impostor. One of the Crewmates was sus of me but the other convinced him to skip and finish tasks; said he also had a MedBay scan and to come watch. So I went with them to "watch" while the the other stayed at the button. He scanned, then I ran around trying to signal him to stay in MedBay, but the other called a meeting. "Guys we really have to vote here." Says Crewmate who is sus of me. "Purple watched me scan." "I was trying to signal you to watch ME scan afterwards, but you ran out and a meeting was called." (Me/Purple) And just like that, we voted off the Crewmate at the button and I won.

    I once joined a Lobby that didn't understand that the Taskbar won't go up until ALL my wires are done. I tried to explain to them that it's a 3-part task but they weren't having it. Needless to say I was betrayed and voted off by my own comrades. But hopefully they learned after I was confirmed "not An Impostor". :P

    The footage on some of those advice does not reflect reality. The green task progression only happen if you finished all the steps of the task, yet, at least two of the task you showed during this part of the video were the first step of a multi step task. Which should not make the bar progress at all. Lot of task are safe to fake because of this very fact. As long as you don't fake the part that should make the bar progress you can get away with it. In a pickle, if you absolutely have to fake the last part of a multi step task, you can even sabotage communication to deactivate the task bar all together as you were supposed to make the bar progress. So nobody can attest that you didn't contribute since it would be deactivated when you get off.

    6:07 NONONONO... NO certain tasks have order such as downloads and churning trash as you explained. For the task bar to go up while downloading you need to complete the downloading task. This is done by UPLOADING inside admin. You can only use the downloading tactic if somebody ‘uploading s in admin. Same with chuting trash this goes for cafe and 02 you chute garbage then go to storage then vent. Plus that is a visual task and if visual is off, you have a visual task bar. Tasks that work like this are: Divert power: you have to divert the power in the room and the first step is the driver in electrical. Downloading, Garbage, Samples: self explanatory. Learn to get a brain lol

I vented nav to weapons, killed brown there, vented back and accidentally opened it with yellow in nav. I think they were doing a task and didnt notice but i accidentally gave myself away so i locked the doors on us to save time and followed them to weapons where i then reported brown and said "i just walked in and saw yellow with brown's body" and everyone believed me and I said"my badv after and won 😎 yelled at a lot after that lol

    Just gonna leave a quick comment that I still watch the videos now and again, but I won't resubscribe until there's at least an update on the (promised) finale of Petscop. Really disappointed being strung along like this - I even reached out on Twitter, hoping for just an acknowledgment regarding its abandonment. Please, it would be nice to know it's never coming and then be surprised if it does than it is for Petscop to rest among the other Never Finished, out of whose finales you've Half-Life 3ed your loyal, longtime viewers.
