Hex-A-Ring is one of the rounds in Fall Guys. This round is a Final round and was introduced in Season 1.[1][2]

Course Description[]

Standard version[]

Hex-A-Ring plays like a combination of of Hex-A-Gone and Roll Off. The arena consists of a rotating cylinder made out of tiles that disappear when they are walked on. Above the arena, players begin the round floating above spaced hexagonal tiles. The cylinder starts out slower and gradually speeds up to a maximum speed. There are three layers of tiles before a hole is created. The goal of the game is to avoid falling into the slime; the last player standing will win the crown.

This round times out at 5:00, but generally will not be reached unless most players fall off early.

Course changes[]

Starting from 14 July 2022:

  • The starting speed of the cylinder is slowed down.
  • Hex-A-Ring now appears to scale in size depending on the number of players remaining.
    • The number of starting tiles above the ring now corresponds with the number of players in the lobby. Previously, there would be way more starting tiles than players.
    • The table below shows how many tiles wide the ring is with a certain number of players. Not all widths have been found yet.

Course strategy[]

  • Obviously, to survive, move in the direction opposite to the direction the cylinder is spinning in.
  • Try to stay as far front as is possible so you have more leeway to recover - but not too far front that you slide off it. Sliding off the front is far more likely at the start when the cylinder is spinning at its slowest; this risk diminishes as the cylinder speeds up, but conversely the risk of sliding off the back increases. With the starting speed now even slower, it is now more imperative not to hang too far front.
  • Slowing down is almost always a bad idea, and if you slow down too much, you can be easily caught on the tiles and unable to recover, resulting in falling off the back with no means of rescuing the situation.
  • Unlike Hex-A-Gone, jump-diving to stall is generally not recommended. Slow-jumping still works to an extent: jump and move forward as if you're jumping over one-tile gaps in Hex-A-Gone (when the cylinder is at its slowest, jump from one tile to a tile directly next to it instead). This is important to keep in mind if you're trying to save tiles and go for the timeout.
  • As the field rotates around always keep in mind where any large gaps are located and avoid that section on the next rotation if you cannot jump across the gap. When going for a timeout, this is especially important in the endgame when the cylinder of tiles is almost depleted.
    • Timeouts are now practically impossible as the size of the cylinder now scales with how many players are left, coupled with the incredibly slow starting speed, which tends to lead to large and insurmountable gaps in the ring. It might be necessary to play more ruthlessly.

Survival Variant[]

A Survival type variant was (temporarily) introduced in the Ring Hexathlon playlist on 14 July 2022 (until the playlist was cancelled). In this playlist, the round ends when only a certain number of players are eliminated, leaving 75% players after round 1, and 69% of the remaining players after round 2.

Utilize almost all the same strategies for this version. With the lack of SBMM in this mode, you can expect these to finish fast, especially with a lot of starting players. Don't stay too far back; don't play too far front either, as this variant coincided with a change to slow down Hex-A-Ring, which can severely mess up muscle memory.

Trivia[]

  • This round and Blast Ball are the first finals to not include a crown in their icon.
  • The splash screen shows all the tiles as blue. This is not the case in the live game, where all layers of tiles have differing colours (blue, yellow, and orange).
