Fall Guys, everyone’s favorite jellybean racing battle royale, has been struggling with cheaters lately. To apologize for the mess, developer Mediatonic is giving away a free “ULTRA rare” skin - a majestic unicorn in a ballerina tutu.
If you’ve been playing Fall Guys lately, there’s a good chance you’ve encountered a cheater or two. The party poopers ran rampant for a short while, ruining the fun for everybody.
Mediatonic identified many of them and hilariously locked them in Cheater Island - a place where all the players with unfair advantage play against each other in a desperate race for the crown. As funny as this was, the creator of the game soon turned to a more traditional, and arguably much more effective measure - straight-up banning them.

The colorful game show battle royale now utilizes Easy Anti-Cheat, the same tool used in games such as Apex Legends and Fortnite.
Those players who felt robbed of a well-deserved crown will be compensated for their trouble. In fact, all players will get the reward. We’ve been promised the TWINKLYCORN, a supposedly ultra-rare cosmetic (even though practically everyone will own it). It is indeed a majestic beast, adorned with vanilla and chocolate color palette and sporting a cutesy tutu.
The skin will be made available “in the next few weeks”, so check your game for updates if they are not set on auto.
All in all, this is not a bad way to kill two birds with one stone - get rid of the pesky cheaters, and give all honest players something cool to play with.
