How to purposely fall over in Fall Guys

Take a dive.

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is all about staying on your feet. You spend matches trying to run through various obstacles or playing strange mini-games against other players, and it is crucial to stay standing.

But want if you want to fall over? This is very easy, and you can just hit the Square button to fall over. Your Fall Guy will throw himself to the ground, lying there until you decide to get back up again. But, why would you want to take a dive in a game that is all about staying standing?

Falling over can actually have a huge advantage in the game, depending on the mode that you are playing. In some modes, there will be whirling, head high beams and poles that are trying to knock you off a ledge. Diving to dodge them is a great idea, just make sure you land on the platform you don’t want to get knocked off of.

It can also be a great way to run interference against other teams in some of the mini-games. If another player on your team is caught in some kind of tug of war over an objective, diving at your enemy’s feet and causing them to fall over can be a great way to interrupt what your opponent is trying to do, giving your own teammate the advantage.

Remember, in Fall Guys, you need to survive whatever challenge is happening at the time, but you also need to interfere with other players as much as possible to try and get small advantages.
