This Fall Guys guide will help you learn the ins and outs of the Ultimate Knockout competition. You'll need to battle your way through treacherous obstacles and devious minigames if you're to win against your rival beans. We'll cover everything we know about the game that might help you win, although we offer no guarantees – let's face it, a game about 60 little roly poly characters fighting for space in a world full of questionable physics doesn't necessarily favour skill. If you're also looking to squad up with friends - even those on other platforms - we've got advice for sorting split screen and crossplay too. Here's everything you need to know about Fall Guys and hopefully help you get to that podium and take home the crown.
