Mediatonic have released their Big Yeetus and Anti-Cheatus update for Fall Guys, which includes changes to existing levels and an improved anti-cheat system. Here’s what you need to know. 

Since releasing for PC and PlayStation 4 back in August, Mediatonic’s Fall Guys has pretty much taken over the gaming world – with everyone from streamers to celebrities diving in and trying to claim the crown. 

Given its insane popularity, the developers have already confirmed that major update, Season 2, is in the works. But, before that gets rolled out, they do have other plans too.

That includes their Big Yeetus and Anti-Cheatus update, which aims to get rid of some of the issues that have been plaguing the game in recent weeks.

The Big Yeetus update has been teased by Fall Guys for a while.

Big Yeetus hammer

As the name of the update suggests, Mediatonic has changes to existing levels – with the addition of the Big Yeetus hammer – coming on September 15.

The spinning hammer will “randomly appear in levels” to spice things up, so, you could end up getting a help hand or it could end up sending you back to the main menu so that you can search for another game. 

There will be additional level variation with new fruit falling from the sky to try and ruin your day – including the previously revealed ‘Watermelon Crush’.

New Falls Guys anti-cheat

In addition to that, Fall Guys will also be moving to the same anti-cheat system that Epic Games uses for Fortnite, as well as a few other games. 

This had been previously teased by the devs who have also apologized for the number of cheaters who have managed to worm their way into Fall Guys games. 

On top of those two major additions, there will also be plenty of bug and stability fixes so that the colorful battle royale continues to run smoothly. 

You can find the mid-season patch notes from Mediatonic below.

Fall Guys Big Yeetus and Anti-Cheatus patch notes

Hello fellow bean fans. We’re turbo-excited to share our mid-season update with you all, bringing a whole new layer of colourful chaos and fiendish takes on Season 1’s classic rounds! Plus, we’re getting super serious on bad beans with the addition of Epic’s ‘Easy Anti-Cheat’.

Round variations – expect the unexpected!

Players will quickly realise that all is not what it seems in the Blunderdome. Familiar favourites will have to be tackled in all new ways, with the addition of dozens of obstacles, dizzyingly random rotations and of course, plenty of tumbling fruit. And what’s more, players will have no idea when these changes will occur—no bean’s dignity shall be spared!

New anti-cheat targets bad beans

We’ve implemented Epic’s Easy Anti-Cheat in order to combat players using tools that hook into the game to apply hacks to our unsuspecting Fall Guys. Easy Anti-Cheat is used by the best in the business and will mean our jelly beans receive the very best protection from the bad eggs seeking to exploit them.

Better, faster, smoother, stumbles

Our team have been implementing hot-fixes and tweaks to improve the Fall Guys experience since day one, and today’s major mid-season patch continues this quest! Players can expect changes to enhance server stability, nifty VFX improvements and a whole lot more to make Fall Guys just that little bit smoother.

And another thing…

There have been rumblings across the community about a certain large and rather aggressive hammer obstacle roaming the rounds, apparently intent on causing further mayhem for the Fall Guys. Details are sparse, but one thing we do know is that their name is Big Yeetus and they’re a-coming!

How to unlock MrBeast skin in Fall Guys

Fall Guys players can embrace their inner animal with an awesome MrBeast skin, which resembles his iconic logo. It’s available in the item shop from December 26 to December 29.

Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson has become a household name in the past couple of years. His philanthropy, charity work, and ambitious endeavors include everything from record-breaking giveaways to opening burger chains.

Earlier this year, he teamed up with Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, G2 Esports, and AimLab and donated $1,000,000 to Special Effect, a charity based in the U.K that helps physically disabled people play games.

It happened as a part of Fall Guys ‘Battle of the Brands’ competition, which was a special event intended to help raise money for the charity in the form of bids. In return for their efforts, Mediatonic promised the highest bidders they will receive their own Fall Guys costumes. 

Ninja already received his skin, and it’s already become a popular choice. Like Agent Smith in The Matrix, Ninja Jelly Beans have been populating entire servers. Now, players will be able to get their hands on MrBeast’s costume as well.

How to get MrBeast’s Fall Guys skin

Like Ninja’s Fall Guys skin, MrBeast’s is available in two pieces. The top half is a blue wolf’s head, complete with purple lightning bolts on either side of its eyes. It also has sharp teeth enveloping the Jelly Bean’s face. It’s a direct reference to his official logo.

The second piece is a black and blue hoodie that features the logo on its chest. It also has two pink drawstrings and a matching pair of pants. They both cost one crown each, which means you can get the whole piece for a mere two crowns.

It’s not only Fall Guys players and MrBeast fans who are excited. The man himself is also thrilled. He expressed his delight on Twitter and even mentioned the next game he wants to have a skin in.

“Ayyy, we got a skin in Fall Guys!” he wrote. “Whoever is in charge of Among Us skins, can I have one as well?” There’s been no official response yet, but the idea is already gaining traction.

MrBeast’s skin is already proving to be popular. Only time will tell whether it manages to surpass the popularity of Ninja’s skin, but it will almost certainly come down to the wire.

It’s fantastic that Mediatonic teamed up with prominent figures and brands to help raise money for a good cause. Plus, it gives Fall Guys players a chance to get their hands on some limited skins.
