Developer Mediatonic has reiterated their commitment to address the current cheating issue in their runaway success, Fall Guys. In the 3 weeks that have passed since the game released, there have been several issues patched out of the game and combating cheaters is now very high on their to-do list.
Yesterday an announcement was made via Twitter that cheaters will soon be receiving a more instant punishment for their actions. Here is the tweet:
Dealing with cheaters is a top priority for us
At the moment, when a cheater is detected, they are able to finish the current show before being blocked
We are going to start taking more immediate action soon
As mentioned before: It isn't necessary to manually report cheaters

Having fallen victim to a few dirty cheaters just yesterday, it is great to see Mediatronic dealing with this as a high priority, as it has the potential to ruin the game if it isn’t addressed quickly and effectively.
