The most important part to kick out the imposter is the discussion time. It is called when someone reports a dead body or the emergency meetings. Both the imposter and the crewmates can call an emergency meeting or report a dead body to bring out the discussion time.

Now is the time when everybody who is alive gets a chance to talk to decide who is the suspect or the imposter among them. Ghosts are not allowed to speak as mentioned above. As there is only a chat system in the game therefore for the conversation you have to use Apps like Discord.

After the discussion is done, all the alive members get the chance to vote out a single crewmate. All crewmates can also choose to skip the vote if the information provided by all is less avoiding an innocent ejection. Now it is up to you how you play as an imposter convincing others and at the same time deceiving them or as a crewmate working along with teammates and gathering information to kick out the imposter.
