Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout took the world by storm with its unique take on the battle royale genre. One of the qualities that set it apart from its major competitors is that each ‘show’ filled up with 60 players at the start is actually an amalgamation of smaller games called Round Games.
Round Games come in six different varieties: Race, Hunt, Survival, Logic, Team, and Final. Often, the team and final games would also fit into another category, but due to ‘team’ or ‘final’ being their most standout quality, they are not organized this way.
Here is all 29 Round Games currently featured in Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout.
Race | 11 games
Race games are the most common type of game, and the only type that shows up until the final round in Gauntlet Showdown. Many race maps have variants called Gauntlet Remixes, in which select obstacles in the map have been changed. To qualify for a race, you must make it to the finish line within a certain set number of players allowed to qualify that round.
- Dizzy Heights: Race through an obstacle course of spinning discs, rolling balls, and large falls. Watch out for the ending; you have a big jump to make to get to the end safely.
- Door Dash: Run to the end, jumping through doors that might be fake. Follow the lead of other players, or charge ahead and risk making a grave mistake.
- Fruit Chute: Climb up a downward conveyor belt while giant fruit is rolling down, trying to knock you off. Stay close to the edges and use the triangle bumpers as cover.
- Gate Crash: Hop over gates that are moving up and down. Careful at the very end; you will slide down some slime and need to jump over one of three moving gates at the right time.
- Hit Parade: Go from a game of balance to a game of manually turned objects, and finish it off by dodging swinging balls and bumpers to make it to the finish line.
- Knight Fever: Dodge swinging axes, turning spike poles, swinging spike poles (known officially as Thicc Bonkuses), and make sure to get a clean finish over the automated draw bridges.
- See Saw: Race each other and work together, balancing see-saws, meeting checkpoints, and avoiding falls. But be careful; an unbalanced see-saw will be a big fall for everyone on it.
- Slime Climb: This is the only race where there is no set qualify amount. Instead, you can be eliminated. Don’t fall into the rising deadly slime as you race through this obstacle course. Beware of griefers.
- Tip Toe: Figure out which platforms are fakes and are real to uncover the secret path to the finish line. Be careful not to fall, or jump headfirst with a Hail Mary. The choice is yours.
- Wall Guys: Work together to push blocks into climbable routes and race each other to the end in this medieval themed game of teamwork and backstabbing. After all, it’s every bean for themselves.
- The Whirlygig: Race through spinning polls and turning windmills and choose whether to avoid them or use them to your advantage. Make sure to leap on the final jump to avoid an untimely setback.
Survival | 3 games
Unlike the race mode, Survival games usually have a set number of players that will be eliminated, instead of a set number who will qualify, or it ends after a certain amount of time, in which all players can qualify if all players survive. It’s extremely beneficial to get good at this game mode, as half of the Final games would be in the survival category if they were not final games.
- Block Party: Move around on a large platform, avoiding blocks sliding across it. Everyone who doesn’t fall off the edge when all the blocks pass and time is up will move on to the next round.
- Jump Club: Survive on a circular platform while a green spinning poll tries to knock you off, and a pink one tries to prevent you from jumping over it. The round ends after a certain number of eliminations.
- Roll Out: Survive by navigating a cylinder split into five spinning subsects and avoid falling through holes or off the sides into deadly slime. The round ends after a certain number of eliminations.
Hunt | 2 games
Out of all of the basic round types, Hunt games might be the most cutthroat. It’s every player for themselves in that, if you win, you usually took that shot of winning away very directly from another player. There aren’t currently many hunt games directly in the hunt category, though more games in the Team and Final category would fit under this subsect.
- Hoopsie Legends: This competitive free-for-fall has all players trying to reach six points to make it into the qualifying quota. Jump through a white hoop to earn 1 point, or a gold hoop to earn five.
- Tail Tag: If you don’t have a tail, grab a player with a tail to gain one. If you do have a tail, run away from tailless players. Everyone with a tail after time is up will qualify; the rest will be eliminated.
Logic | 1 game
Logic games, or ‘game’ in this case, are a bit of an outlier. This is the only game category to only have one game in it so far. Logic games test your memory and thinking skills, and very often, all players will make it through. This is because there are many challenges in logic games, and if everyone completes them, no one is eliminated in that round.
- Perfect Match: Over the course of three rounds, memorize which platforms certain fruits are on before they disappear. Stand on the platform matching the fruit on the screen to avoid falling into the slime.
Team | 8 games
Team games are unique in that you are suddenly working with players you’ve been playing against for the rest of the show. Some of these games would fall into other categories outside of the team label, like hunt or race, while others can’t really be categorized. That said, there is not currently a survival-style team game. The poorest performing/losing team is eliminated, everyone else is safe.
- Egg Scramble (3 teams): Collect eggs and bring them to your team’s nest. Normal eggs are worth one point, and golden eggs are worth five. Protect your eggs, as they can be stolen. The team with the least eggs loses.
- Egg Siege (3 teams): This variant of Egg Scramble has a larger map, moving drawbridges, and a deeper nest with ramps instead of stairs. The win/lose conditions for teams are the same as Egg Scramble.
- Fall Ball (2 teams): In this rocket league type game, try to hit giant balls into the enemy goal. Whoever has more points when time runs out wins. Though it’s not a race, there is a gauntlet remix of it.
- Hoarders (3 teams): Try to push balls into your team’s court and protect them from being pushed back out—whichever team as the fewest balls when time runs out loses.
- Hoopsie Daisy (3 teams): This team variant of Hoopsie Legends has players jumping through as many hoops as they can within a time limit. The team with the least points after the clock hits zero is eliminated.
- Jinxed (2 teams): One player on each team has a ‘Jinx.’ Avoid enemies with the jinx if you don’t have it, or grab enemies without the jinx if you do. The first team to be completely jinxed loses.
- Rock ‘N’ Roll (3 teams): Roll your team’s ball through an obstacle course, and then either try to roll it into the goal or prevent another team from rolling their ball into the goal before yours.
- Team Tail Tag (4 teams): This team variant of Tail Tag is the only four-team round game, and the only presence of green team. The team with the least tails at the end of the time limit loses.
Final | 4 games
Every Fall Guys show ends with one of the four Final games. These games are unique in that while once in a blue moon, there can be a tie. Generally, Final games only have one winner. In a survival-type Final round, players will be eliminated until only one is left. In a race, only first place gets the crown. In a hunt, only the best hunter gets the win. Here is where legends are born.
- Fall Mountain: This is the race of all races. Avoiding tumbling balls and swinging hammers as you climb up the mountain. The first player to grab the crown wins. Like all races, it can sometimes be remixed.
- Hex-A-Gone: Try to survive longer than your competition by walking and jumping around on several layers of small, hexagonal platforms that disappear shortly after you touch them. The last one alive wins.
- Jump Showdown: This Final Round variant of Jump Club has twice the lower pole and platforms that fall into the smile below. Two platforms will remain at the end, and the last player alive will take the crown.
- Royal Fumble: This Final Round variant of Tail Tag is the most bloodthirsty hunt of all, as there is only one tail, and whichever player has it at the end of the time limit will win the show.
These are all the round games currently out in Fall Guys as of Season 2 Medieval Knockout. New round games will be added in the future, and this article will be updated accordingly when the time comes.
