Fall Guys will beef up its anti-cheat efforts in the 'next couple of weeks'


It's time to toss out the bad beans

There's always more work to be done to shut down cheaters, and as we inch toward Season 2 of Fall Guys in October, Mediatonic increasingly hopes to stop pesky players from ruining everyone's fun.

In a tweet, the studio apologized for the "cheating problem" in Fall Guys and promised that steps would be taken this week to "expand" the existing detection system before a "BIG" update goes even further.

That larger update coming in "the next couple of weeks" will implement the same "anti-cheat used by games such as Fortnite," according to Mediatonic. Easy Anti-Cheat can do the heavy lifting.

I like to think I'm on a hiatus, and when I come back for those sweet Season 2 rewards, hopefully the state of the game is in a better place on multiple fronts – motivating-killing cheaters included.

I feel for you, PC players. I had to switch over to PS4.
