Welcome to Fall Guys, the world’s most ridiculous knockout game show! Barrel headlong through manic obstacle courses, trials and minigames until 60 Fall Guys are whittled down to one final winner! It’s chaos on a scale you’ve never seen before. It’s teamwork and competition wrapped up in a fluorescent bundle of madness. It’s dozens of jelly bean characters getting hit by a giant inflatable hammer.
The show starts today, I’m ready to spill the beans on insider strategies that are going to leave your competitors swimming in the slime. Here are my top three tips for glory in the greatest competition ever made — Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout!
1. Dive More
It may look ridiculous, but the Fall Guys’s dive is their secret weapon in the pursuit of victory. Pressing SQUARE will fling your Fall Guy forwards onto their belly, and this can be used in all manner of locations to gain the upper hand! For example, diving across the finish line of a race Round can shave precious milliseconds off your time and can be the difference between elimination and qualification (plus it just looks cool).
On top of that dive can be used to dodge incoming projectiles, to knock over other Fall Guys, or even comboed with a jump to gain extra air time. If your Fall Guy isn’t spending half the level picking themselves up off the floor you’re doing it wrong, so dive whenever possible!
2. Let Others Fail for You
Although ultimate glory is always the goal, sometimes it pays to be sneaky and let others pave your way to victory. Trying hanging back on race Rounds like Door Dash or Tip Toe, where Fall Guys must work together to figure out a safe route to the finish line. Once the golden route becomes apparent, simply clamber over the chaos they’ve created and waltz your way to qualification in style while they wonder where on earth it all went wrong.
3. Make Friends (Then Betray Them)
In Fall Guys there can only be one winner, but it pays to make alliances along the way. Rounds like See Saw need Fall Guys to work together and balance their way to the finish line, and Egg Scramble requires a perfect combination of egg protectors and stealers to avoid coming last. By the time you reach a final round like Hex-a-gone your competitors might think you’ve got a soft spot for them, which will only make it sweeter when cut off their path and send them falling to their elimination in the slime below.
If this all sounds like hard work simply form a party with your PlayStation friends and revel in their groans as you steal the crown from right under their noses (even if you promised you wouldn’t).
Armed with these three insider tips you’ll be parading around in the latest in greatest of Fall Guy fashion items you chose to blow your hard-earned crowns on. This is, of course, I happen to be on the start line with you — I’ve grown accustomed to wearing a crown during all our beta tests. So come get some and we’ll see who the real winners are.
