A Fall Guys patch will seemingly fix the Block Party exploit

Fall Guys has been out for a little over a week and it’s already become a massive hit, proving popular on streaming platform Twitch, as well as YouTube. Because of its popularity, it hasn’t taken long for players to find exploits in Fall Guys levels, with the biggest exploit being that in the level, Block Party.

In Block Party, huge blocks will try and knock you and the rest of your fellow beans off the platform and into the slime. It’s fairly easy for the most part, all you have to do is time it right and jump. However, some beans have learned of an exploit. All you have to do is find a participant (willing or not) to stand by the sides of the platform, then jump on their head to give you the bounce needed to get on top of the wall. From then on, you’re able to emote your way to victory, having done nothing at all.

Players have already explored the exploit to the fullest on YouTube, but with a patch that’s due out today, it seems that this exploit will be gone for good. The patch note, as seen via PC Gamer, states that the team at Mediatonic has “addressed some collisions in Block Party allowing players to bypass the blocks.” Whether this means that the exploit will not be available any longer, we have yet to find out.

We will update this article with more information as soon as we’re able to play the Block Party level in Fall Guys, and look at the update.
