Fall Guys: Top 10 Tips To Get You The Win!

Fall Guys.

The one game that has taken the internet by storm since launching on the Playstation Store for FREE via their PS Plus Free Games Initiative during August 2020 (It’s available Now for £15.99 if you missed out!) and on Windows.

It’s been all over Twitter and Twitch got involved when famous streamer TimTheTatman struggled to get his win.

For those unaware, Fall Guys is a massive multiplayer party game that pits up to 60 online players in a free for all struggle though various rounds of crazy games which are either played in teams or as a lone ranger.

A bunch of people get eliminated on each game until the final round where only one winner remains.

Jump over a range of bizarre obstacles, avoid mental contraptions all designed to knock you on your ass. All at the same time with some incredible physics.

Just look at the cute way that they walk…..awwww.

Leave your dignity at the door because you won’t need it here. Be prepared to avoid rebels who try and push you off the edge, falling fruit and waving pendulums.

Fall in style all to grabbing that win. That illustrious win that not many achieve….

Fall Guys is ultimately the video game version of Takeshi’s Castle the amazing Japanese game show from the 80’s & 90’s and Narrated in the UK during the early 2000’s by Craig Charles. Health and Safety didn’t exist it seems during those times and boy did it make for some amazing TV. Amazingly allegedly not one person was injured or hurt during filming, but we’re not so sure ourselves…..If you’re too young to know what Takeshi’s castle is, you missed out on some incredible Tv, we urge you to check out some clips of it…after watching this video of course!

Without further ado here are our Top 10 ways to get the Dub!

Push people off

Use Right Trigger to your advantage and grab people, be a right mean bastard and push people off, it’s a great way to win and it looks funny too! Word of warning it is possible to fall off yourself whilst doing this so do it at your own risk! This is one of those situations where it’s annoying and very frustrating when it happens to you but when you do it to other people it’s hilarious! Though the first time it happened to me, I was like “OH MY GOD! He just pushed me off!” – then for some reason ended up in a fit of laughter! So it just depends on what type of gamer you are I guess……wonder how many controllers have been smashed as a result of this technique…..

Be rebellious

On team games it pays to be rebellious. Who said that cheats never proposer?! Pick on the team that has the least amount of eggs or balls and keep them at 0. No matter what your team has, you will always get through, as, well, there is nothing less than 0! This is a tried and tested technique and it is the easiest method to win on team games. Let your teammates to the hard work and you just focus on stopping the other team from completing their tasks. It’s sneaky but it’s a surefire way to win. Sure it’s annoying when it’s get done to you, but it works.

Don’t panic and take your time

Even if you are at the back of the pack you can still make it to the end in time.

Don’t panic!

Don’t Rush!

You can still make it to the end zone in time. Whilst the others are all rushing to get to the end zone, getting in each others way, making each other fall over or fall off the edge. This frees up space for you. Simply take your time and get to the end. Don’t rush. This is especially apparent on games that require great timing, such as Gate Crash and Whirly Gig. Wait for your moment and jump across, if you rush and put no thought in it you’ll just keep failing.

You know what they say, slow and steady wins the race.

Take Risks

Sometimes it’s good to take risks on Fall Guys, especially on levels that require jumping! Levels such as Tip Toe are perfect for just taking risks.

Tip Toe is the best example for this. Tip Toe is a level that consists of a bunch of squares which separate you from the goal. Walk across the wrong one and you fall to your demise. Walk across the correct one and it solidifies. With this level, the best way to get ahead is to simply leap right at the start, you’ll get it wrong a couple times but when you get it right you’ll be further ahead than the rest of the pack. Sure you may make the wrong move on the next go, but at least you know where to go on the next attempt.

Practice Makes Perfect

Practice makes perfect!

Yes, even that applies to Fall Guys, the more you play the better you get. As you are able to work out the best ways to complete the games in the fastest manner possible! You know what’s coming and you know how to tackle the obstacles coming your way. The more you play the quicker you’ll get to the end. There’s been a recent update which will change the levels up a bit on each attempt, but even then it just requires you to play more so when the variation appears again you know how to tackle it.

Use the swings to give you a boost

Use the swings or the bars on levels such as Whirly Gig and other game modes to help give you a boost and YEET you across the map. It may take a couple attempts for you to get hit at the right time and at the right angle, but once you know where to stand you’ll be ahead in no time! That being said, do it wrong and you’ll keep getting pushed back, I know we said that being at the back isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but get knocked back too many times and you’re going to be left in the dust! Sometimes these things that are designed to punish you in fact give you a little help!

Dive rather than jump

Diving rather than jumping on various levels help to negate the chances of you falling over and losing precious time! Your dude isn’t the most balanced of creatures, so is prone to falling over a lot, if you dive just before you fall over too, you’ll be able to get up quicker. Jumping whilst it gets you to where you need to be, will occasionally cause your guy to fall over and lose precious time. This diving method is especially helpful on levels like Door Dash, Whirly Gig and Gate Crash! Diving gets you further and helps with balance, what’s not to like!

Use the sides

On games such as Slime Climb, Fruit Shute and hit parade, there is slime and revolving walkways which are designed to slow you down and frustrate you. The best way to get across these and to the end is to use the sides. This way your character is able to walk across them easier, quicker and a lot safer from elimination or falling off the edge! It seems to work and we don’t know why, but going through the middle is a lot more dangerous and a slower method!

See Saw – Walk rather than jump

See Saw is a difficult game at the best of times…..does no one know how to use a See Saw?! But the best way to get through on See Saw, in our opinion is to walk off the See Saw’s instead of jumping off. This method links to our diving and not jumping tip, your dude isn’t the most balanced and if you jump you’re putting yourself at a disservice as he’ll just fall over and roll to the end of the see saw and off into the abyss. Walking off each one is much safer and will provide you with a clean walk towards the end as you don’t lose as much balance!


…& finally winning on Fall Guys is luck. Of course, there is skill involved but also a lot of luck also is at play here. The stars have to align and things have to go your way to get the dub. You could also argue that you make your own luck at that is also true.

But we’d say that getting the win can also be down to luck.

So go out there and keep all these tips in mind and have fun! That’s what games are all about and Fall Guys is definitely an embodiment of that. Get out there and chase that crown!

We recommend collecting all the costumes that are available to you, at the end of each round you get some credits that you can use to customise your fall guy.
