Fall Guys cheaters are using hacks to ruin the game

Bubblegum battle royale Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout continues to be a massive success, with over 2 million fans enjoying it on Steam alone — but, it seems, not everyone is playing the game fairly.

Players are uploading clips where it appears that some people are using speed hacks that allow them to completely outrun the competition. In the clip below, uploaded by Julien D, we can see a cheater burst through the map in the Slime Climb mini-game, whereas the rest of the players are barely stumbling through the starting area.

It’s not an isolated occurrence. There are more clips of similar hacks floating around on social media, presumably from the PC version of the game, where hacks are easier to implement.

There is also a type of hack that allows players to just fly over obstacles, like so:

Developer Mediatonic told Polygon that it is working on a fix that will hopefully hit the game “soon.” A representative for the developer added, “Cheating takes away from everyone’s enjoyment of the game.” In the meantime, the battle royale developer encourages people to report hackers.

It’s worth noting, though, that hacks can’t ensure that you’ll win the game, as there’s still elements of randomness that you can’t control. Sometimes, though, hackers get cocky and try to gloat at the finish line — which means that other players can give them some sweet, sweet comeuppance.

Update: This story has been updated to add comment from Mediatonic.
