Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout Wiki

Race rounds are a type of rounds in Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout. They involve a linear map and the first players to complete the objective are qualified.

Race selection[]

  • Episodes always start with a Race round. The subsequent rounds before the Final are a combination of Race, Survival, Hunt, Logic and/or Team rounds.
    • Some special shows, such as Slime Survivors, may not start with a race, and/or feature no races at all, however.
  • Due to the player requirements set, some races only typically appear in rounds 1-2, while some only appear in rounds 3-4.
    • Usually, Fruit Chute, Tip Toe, and Wall Guys fall into the latter category. Ski Fall, Slime Climb, and Freezy Peak straddles both categories, the first two typically appearing in rounds 2-3, the last one in 2-4 (but more usually 3-4). The remaining races typically appear in rounds 1-2.
  • Special playlists might cause some races to appear outside of these usual rounds.
    • For example, Big Fans, which tends to appear in round 2 (likely due to its high elimination rate), could potentially appear in round 1 in the Mix It Up! playlist.
  • It is possible, albeit very rare for a starter races (race levels for 40-60 players) to appear as a third round.
    • This happens when a round such as Perfect Match occurs on the second round and fail to eliminate enough players to put the total count below 40.

Miscellaneous mechanics[]

  • It is imperative not to take too long to cross the finish line. In most race modes (with some exceptions), there is a hidden timer of 3 minutes, which is a few seconds after the song being played loops. Once this timer has elapsed, everyone remaining will be eliminated. Timeout durations can be seen on each race's individual page.
    • Previously, the timer was completely hidden. As of Season 3 (Legacy), a timer appears at 15 seconds left.
    • Note that realistically, some timers will not ever be reached most of the time, but there are incredibly rare exceptions.
  • The game does not break ties, so in rare cases it is possible for more players to qualify than the specified quota, if both are deemed to have crossed the finish line at the same time. Theoretically, this can give a chance for an entire lobby to qualify, but has only been seen adding 2 extra qualifiers at most.

Trivia[]

On reaching the finish line of a race round, confetti is shot from the bottom left and bottom right corner of the screen. Since this activates a few pixels before qualification, correct placement can lead to constantly shot confetti continuously covering the screen.
