Tips For Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout by developer Mediatonic has burst onto the scene and quickly become the indie darling of the summer. However, advancing from one round to the next in this battle royale game has proven challenging for some. But fear not, because we’ve got you covered with some Fall Guys tips to be the last one standing and a nice shiny crown for your efforts. Without further ado, here are a few tips for success:

Patience is a virtue

Don’t be too aggressive. Patience can be a saving grace, especially during levels like “Door Dash” and “Tip Toe”. Don’t feel like you have to sprint all the way to the finish line. Sometimes, a slight pause can actually save you quite a bit of time and/or elimination.

Again, patience is a virtue

Fall Guys has seen a massive amount of player activity since its launch on 8/4/2020, leading to frequent server issues. The active player count on PS4 and Steam is substantially higher than anticipated. Unfortunately, this has led to “review bombing” of the game. These issues are being addressed with server maintenance and enhancements, so hang in there.

Self-preservation

Worry more about yourself than others. Of course, this is less applicable during the team rounds. Even though it may be tempting to see what others are doing and plan ahead by navigating around the masses, the reality is that it’s sometimes unavoidable. You’re better off monitoring your movements and actions rather than trying to predict what dozens of other players around you may or may not do.

DON’T keep rollin’ rollin’ rollin’ rollin’

In the level “Roll Out”, quickly moving from one spinning ring to the next so that you don’t fall into the slime might seem like the way to go. But it tends to be easier and less chaotic if you stick to one ring and the one adjacent to it. Combine this with staying on the slower rotating ring(s), and you should coast into the next round.

It’s the final countdown!

For the final race on “Fall Mountain”, hug the edge walls. There is too much chaos in the middle lanes, so hug the left or right edge all the way to the promised land. Also, MAKE SURE YOU GRAB THE CROWN. The game warns you before the start of the stage, but as another friendly reminder, use the grab button (R2 on PS4) when you’ve reached the crown. So last warning: if you jump towards the crown without grabbing it, you’re gonna have a bad time.

Fun, fun, fun

Have fun! The game moves quickly, so don’t get too stressed or upset at an early departure. Just try again and learn from previous mistakes, but don’t beat yourself up for not being perfect.

That’s it! If you have any suggested Fall Guys tips, feel free to share them in the comment section below. Also, keep an eye out for our upcoming review of Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout.

    In Hex-A-Gone, try to get in front of people on the same level as you. Eliminate their path before they can get to it. Also be aware of your surroundings and have planned exit strategies. You’ll likely fall a few floors no matter what, but playing smart can keep you alive longer.

    Ooh, that’s a good one. Playing off of that, I’ve noticed that a lot of people do the “slow and steady” method by doing short bunny hops from one tile to an adjacent one. But the problem with that is what you said: where do you go once your path has been eliminated? I’ve found much more success running around eating up tiles, and in turn, having a better view of the whole platform.

    The short hops is a great way to stall, but the problem is the physics can be unpredictable, and if you take too long on a landing, you’ll lose your tile, so yea, I agree. It’s better to run around, especially if you’re on a lower floor than others. Eliminate tiles for them to land on so they go straight to the next floor lol.
