Tips and Tricks on How to Find Traitors as an Innocent

8 posts in this topic

 

Hey guys, this guide is to help out players who have trouble trying to kill traitors and give some strategies on how to find them more easily. Keep in mind, these are only suspicious actions that may or may not determine a player’s role, so do not  kill someone off of suspicion because of this. If I need to edit something or add more to this guide, I will do that. This is my first ever guide, so I hope this helps out everyone! 

Here are a few ways to make assumptions and have a good hunch on someone who could be a traitor:

1. You hear them buy something from the T menu. Now this is very situational and isn’t recommended but may help sometimes if you are alone with someone. Some items do not make a sound when purchased, such as body armor or radar, so take note of this. Also, if someone just happens to be walking over some ammo that go into their gun, this does not mean anything. It makes the “buy” sound, however it is pretty difficult to know if they bought something the moment they walk over the ammo. 

2. They overreact to certain things such as hearing gunfire or freaking out over someone getting killed right in front of them.  Innocents do this too, but traitors tend to shout or worry more when this happens  because they are trying to act innocent and go along with it, but in reality they know they aren’t going to get shot because they want to use the art of deception and pretend they are innocent.

3. You walk by somebody and they don’t look back at you. This is a very good telltale sign of someone who is a traitor. It’s because traitors aren’t worried about getting shot in the back so they are more focused on killing people, and this seems less suspicious. This works especially if you are alone, but you can sometimes notice this in a moderate sized group. 

4. They stop whatever they are doing and start pointing their gun at you. This is a very obvious giveaway and they will most likely shoot you in a minimum of 3-5 seconds. This would be a great time to start moving in an erratic fashion so it makes them harder to hit you. A good tip is to follow those that are alone and see if they will shoot or not. If they rarely ever turn around and don’t care that you are following them, this is very suspicious and are probably waiting for the perfect opportunity to strike. If they do turn around a lot and do care that you are following them, they are probably an innocent so take this with a grain of salt.

5. They refuse to get tested or hesitate to answer questions that are asked to them. This is highly suspicious and you need to keep an eye on these people. They don’t want to test most likely because they dont want their role to be revealed, obviously. And if someone asks where they have been for the whole round or ask what their primary or secondary is, they could possibly be reluctant to answer because they don’t want to get caught. 

6. People who don’t travel in crowds and prefer to be alone need to be watched carefully. If you notice someone who appears out of nowhere, then there’s a good chance that they either killed a lone wolf or planted c4s or mine turtles. Traitors need to be stealthy at all times, which means not shooting someone in front of a crowd of people. Good traitors use the element of surprise and take out innocents that aren’t near anyone else, so they need to be careful about their surroundings or else they’ll be caught. 

These are my tips that I’ve learned while playing/watching TTT. These may not work all the time but can help out if you suspect somebody and want to watch their behavioral patterns. Now get in there and catch those traitors by surprise!

I just want to add a note, that while this guide can help tag traitors and such, these behaviors ARE NOT TO BE USED TO KOS SOMEBODY. None of these behaviors are traitorous and KOS'Able.

6. Someone before you ID’s a dead traitor’s body and there are no credits on it. (This only works if you are a detective.) This is also pretty situational and works under certain circumstances. Say for example there is an AFK person and they get moved to spectator mode. A person ID’s it and they happen to be a traitor. You then check it and there are NO credits on the corpse. Now clearly, AFK traitors don’t use their credits so technically you are allowed to kill for this but you probably shouldn’t because you don’t normally expect someone to answer with that response, so you will most likely be slain

NO. You can NEVER kill someone because the body doesnt have credits on it. Credits CAN be transfered, and a player may fake being afk as a traitor to be unsuspicious after a discreet kill. So, no, you can not kill someone who ID'd an AFK traitor's body because the body doesnt have credits.

Yeah the last option isn’t really viable which is why I said it was really situational. I think a lot of people abused this back in the earlier days but now it’s pretty much evolved to where no one kills for that anymore so I see where you’re coming from.

ive never seen anyone be killed for this, only proven if you ID the body as a inno and call the det to the T body. if the det gets credits from the body then you are PROVEN, because u cant ID a body without taking credits, but u can take credits without ID'ing.

you should probably erase #6

 

I'd like to add some of my own.

1. sometimes when someone isnt actively trying to defend themselves they might be a T. (ex: running around holstered, or with a melee out) this is not always the case some people just like to mess around as a inno.

2. players who talk too much/ask too many questions. i refer to this as the "why" traitors. "why are you hurt?" "why are you running away?" "who is that shooting?" "how did you get over there?" "why am i KOS?"  these traitors often talk very vaguely and too me it seems they try to break your concentration and shoot you before you get the chance to reply as you reach for the push to talk or type in chat. you dont owe them any response you can leave your reasoning for a !report if it comes to that. traitors can also panic if they think they are going to lose a gunfight and will false KOS. watch out for those people that say "i just killed a traitor" but dont ID a body, or ID an inno/det.

DONT EVER TRUST ANYONE WITH A MIC

3. My all time favorite is when someone screams they are being rdm'd! Innos dont get RDM'd (unless by another inno/det but you really shouldnt be able to know that), innos are killed by traitors and call a KOS. so when someone is screaming RDM before the body is ID'd u can be almost certain they are a t, and if they kill that inno then you can blow their brains out.

1. If someone is standing still and adjusting their crosshair to your head while you are moving. (this happens all the time because people aren't confident to take a shot so they wait until you stop moving)

2. If you walk past someone and they turn around and follow you

3. If they are getting rdmd by someone or just shot in general and they say "Why are you rdming me? " - an innocent would just call a kos

4. They keep trying to get really close to you(probably so they can knife you).

5. They are running at you super fast with a DB or Mossberg in hand.

6. It is late in the game and you are in a spot away from others (Ex. the music room on 67th way) and they come slithering on by trying to "hang" with you

7. They are in an area away from others and are looking through their sniper scope (I usually just sit behind them and wait until they snipe at someone)

8. You see them looking down on a group of people with a babynade or TnT in hand (shits about to go down)

9. Oh and if you ask mae if shes a traitor 9/10 times she will tell the truth

Instead of all this, you can just get a dna scanner from a dead detective :KappaHD:
