Naturally, the system you're playing on will determine how to dive in Fall Guys, and the all-important button you need to know is one of the following:

  • PS4: Square
  • PC Keyboard: Ctrl
  • Xbox pad (on PC): X

Now, you can just press that button on its own, but the Fall Guys dive is much more effective if you jump first and then leap. Not only will that launch you further forward than a regular jump, which is useful for clearing wider gaps or rounds such as Hoopsie Daisy where you need to pass through floating rings, but you'll also land in a flat stable position which can stop you sliding off See Saws when they're tilting up. A jumping dive into balls during Fall Ball or Hoarders will help to knock them further in that direction, and you can also use it to throw eggs into your basket from a distance while taking on Egg Scramble.

Now you know how to dive in Fall Guys, use that information to secure some more qualifications and work your way towards winning that crown!
