Fall Guys added a sneaky update where all the cheaters were being put into the same game where they competed against each other. The community manager of Fall Guys called it the Cheater Island.
Fall Guys is not your traditional Battle Royale. It plays more like a game show. In Fall Guys, players have to compete against each other in order to survive each round. The ultimate goal is to win the crown by being the last bean alive. Since its release, Fall Guys has been gaining massive popularity. It has sold so many copies that even Mediatonic (Developers of Fall Guys) were astonished at the game’s success.
With such a huge number of players comes the problem of some players trying to cheat. The cheating problem in Fall Guys became so bad that even high-profile streamers like Ninja and DrLupo were talking about every game of Fall Guys having cheaters. There is no reporting system in the game, so players just had to watch cheaters take the crown in front of them.
Mediatonic previously said that they are working on their anti-cheat system. They also said they are going to implement Easy Anti Cheat going forward. This is the same anti-cheat used by many online games, such as Far Cry 5, Fortnite Battle Royale, Rust, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands, and Watch Dogs 2.
Fall Guys Cheater island
Recently, Fall Guys community manager, Oliver Age24, went on a vacation. As soon as he returned, he talked about a Cheater island in Fall Guys where all cheaters were matchmade against each other.
Here are some videos of Cheaters Island that were uploaded online.
Here is another probable video of Cheater’s Island, where almost all players were cheaters. The video shows what happens when cheaters are put against each other.
In a later update, the Community Manager for Fall Guys explained that they had to shut down Cheater Island. Cheaters are currently not being put into matches with other cheaters instead, they are unable to log in to the game.
