Fall Guys developers at Mediatonic decided to give back to the community in a unique way by handing out a new skin to the world’s best player. The only issue being, no one seems to be able to find them.

Fall Guys has rapidly shot into the spotlight as one of the 2020s most talked-about video games. With millions of players jumping and diving into the action in the first few weeks, the charming battle royale has garnered a great deal of attention.

From Mr Beast’s $20,000 challenge, to TimTheTatMan’s meme-fuelled pursuit of glory, the growing community has had plenty to engage with early on. That trend has continued forward as the developers have now set players around the world on one common goal. Find the best of the best.

On August 20, 2020, Mediatonic confirmed that it had given an upcoming skin to “statistically” the top Fall Guys player in the world a couple of days early, but at the time, the developer didn’t know who that was. Now, that player has been revealed as none other than Twitch streamer DrLupo.

The item itself is actually quite cool, as it’s a skin based on the character P-body from the Portal franchise. According to some recent leaks, this isn’t the only Portal skin in the game, as there’s also one based on the main character of the franchise, Chell.

For those that don’t know, the mega-popular battle royale title features an ever-rotating selection of items through the in-game store. Whether it’s victory animations, taunts, or new skins, there’s always plenty to buy. These cosmetics rotate every few days with a handful of more expensive items set to a weekly rotation instead.

Ahead of the next weekly store update, one of the upcoming skins has been dropped into the game early. Instead of it leaking in the August 20 patch notes, or accidentally going live early, this was an intentional move from the developers. Well… one Mediatonic employee in particular.

“I’ve gone rogue and done a meme,” the Fall Guys social media manager shared on the game’s account. “I’ve found the player who is statistically the best. I’ve just given them Saturday’s costume early.”

This means that DrLupo, out of the millions that login daily, has access to a currently one-of-a-kind item.

Hotline Miami is just one of many games that have already made an appearance in Fall Guys.

This, of course, isn’t the first crossover featured in Fall Guys. The battle royale game has also featured limited-time crossovers with Hotline Miami, Enter The Gungeon, and Team Fortress 2. Hopefully, Mediatonic doesn’t stop with these crossovers going forward and, given this new skin, it doesn’t seem like they are.
