One of the more annoying Fall Guys problems, which involves the balance of players in team-based challenges, seems to have a fix on the way, but when it will arrive has yet to be confirmed.

If you’ve been even remotely paying attention to the battle royale scene right now, you’ll know that Fall Guys tasks players with surviving obstacle course-style challenges that narrow down the field to a final contestant.

These challenges/levels are split into two categories: solo, where it’s every person for themselves, or team-based, where players have to work with others in order to survive each level. While players have been having fun with the game since its August 2020 launch, many people have are having an issue with certain uneven team-based levels.

Devolver Digital
Mediatonic has confirmed that a solution for the team balancing problems plaguing Fall Guys is coming soon.

Fortunately, while responding to a user over on the Fall Guys Reddit, Joe Walsh, the lead game designer at Mediatonic, said that a fix for the problem should be coming in the near future.

The issue itself stems from the fact that, at times, the number of players on each team is uneven, due to the number of overall people in the lobby.

For example, if there are 20 people left in the game and the game requires three teams, that means that there would be two teams of seven people and on a team of six people.

The news was confirmed over on Reddit a few days ago.

If you don’t know anything about the Fall Guys, this might not seem like a big deal. That being said, teamwork in team-based levels is incredibly important in this game and having even one less person that the other team can cause problems.

Unfortunately, there’s no ETA as to when the problem will be fixed, however, Walsh did confirm that the team is currently working on a solution, so it hopefully won’t be too long before players stop seeing those uneven teams.

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.
