Fall Guys Season 2 – Gauntlet Showdown Explained

No more Tail Tag.

by Diego Perez


Tail Tag. Egg Scramble. We’ve all been there. Some of the minigames in Fall Guys aren’t as much fun as the rest, and a new change in Season 2 aims to remedy that. If you only love the races and obstacles courses in Fall Guys and wish you could skip the rest, then Gauntlet Showdown might be for you. It’s a fast pass to the best games in Fall Guys, letting you ignore the stuff you don’t want to play like it’s not even in the game. Here’s everything you need to know about Gauntlet Showdown in Fall Guys.

Gauntlet Showdown Explained

Gauntlet Showdown is a new playlist in Fall Guys that only includes Race and Gauntlet games. That means you’ll only get rounds like Door Dash, Dizzy Heights, and Whirligig and never have to play minigames like Egg Scramble or Tail Tag. This mode is for Fall Guys fans who aren’t as big on the team minigames and just want to stumble through an obstacle course.

It’s also a great way to experience some of the new Season 2 medieval-themed games like Wall Guys and Knight Fever. This game mode has fewer rounds by default because it cuts out so many of them, so you’ll have a greater chance of running into a new map. Knight Fever is the game’s toughest gauntlet yet, and Wall Guys is already packed with tons of physics-based shenanigans. You’ll miss out on Egg Siege and Hoopsie Legends, but those are objective-based team games and you probably won’t want to play them anyway if you’re queuing up for this playlist.
