It’s been a week since Fall Guys was released and it’s already fallen prey to cheating. Players have found hacks that allow them to bypass obstacles, griefing others in the process.
One Reddit user, Beard_Of_Serpico, summed up what makes cheating so annoying in the Fall Guys subreddit: “Pathetic isn’t it? Cheating in one of the most casual, child friendly games ever. This is why we can’t have nice things.”
Mediatonic, the stuido behind the quirky battle royale, has been dealing with server issues since the game launched on August 4th. The game has already amassed 2 million players and like many other online multiplayer games, players have found ways to clip through walls, float and run faster than intended.
The studio is working currently working on the cheating issues and is advising players to report potential cheaters in their Discord channel or the Fall Guys subreddit, since there is no way to report cheaters in-game.
Mediatonic is also planning on giving away a free in-game item to players who have supported Fall Guys during its difficult period of launch.
