Fall Guys has already fallen victim to players who have found ways to trick their way into those crowns. Players have already learned how to bypass the obstacles and grief of other players in the royale of the game-filled mini-game battle. However, it seems that things can be improved, with the developer promising that there are already far fewer cheaters in the game.
“Isn’t it pathetic?” said Redditor Beard_Of_Serpico on the Guys Falls subreddit. “Cheating in one of the most casual, kid-friendly games ever. That’s why we can’t have fun.”
UK-based Mediatonic Studios launched the battlefield battle on 4 August and tested server issues as more than 2 million players entered the game via Steam in its first week. Since then, like many other multiplayer games online, players have found ways to capture walls, run faster and swim in order to take an unfair advantage in certain games.
“We are working as fast as we can to address this issue in the game,”; he told Mediatonic GameSpot via email. “Fraud and other hacks to increase performance take away everyone’s satisfaction and we are actively working to address this now.”
Players believe fraudsters are using third-party software to manipulate the position of their characters in the game. “There are already existing programs capable of letting players fly, teleport and speed up the speed anyone can go and download now,” Redditor Raging_Rob said. “The number of fraudsters will increase as soon as the words spread.”
There is no way to report cheaters in the game, but Mediatonic advises players to report them on their Discord channel or through the Fall Guys subredit. The developer added on August 11 that it has improved its detection criteria and now even without players reporting fraudsters, they are seeing them drop significantly.
It is no longer necessary to report individual fraudsters, as we have adjusted our detection criteria we have noticed a huge decline in fraudsters – getting better! 🙌
A big thank you to everyone who played the game right, you are all gorgeous, and we love you! ❤️ pic.twitter.com/lPZJVBjzIm

GameSpots’ Alessandro Barbosa enjoyed his time playing Fall Guys and his variety of mini-games. “With its short games and easy-to-understand mechanics, Fall Guys is easily the most approachable and hospitable battle royale yet,” he said in the GameSpot review. “Its flared color and varied way of playing do a good job of pulling you in and keeping you fixed, even if a fist feels contrary to the light nature of its premise.”
