Stumble Guys – The Best Tips and Tricks to Win All Your Matches
Stumble Guys is one of the most entertaining games we’ve played in recent times, which consists of a version similar to the popular Fall Guys, but exclusively for Android and iOS. However, it’s possible to enjoy this game on PC for free with BlueStacks, our Android app player, so that you can get the best experience with it, without having to pay. In this sense, if you’re looking for a great free alternative to Fall Guys, then you’ll probably have a good time with this one.
Just like with the game it took inspiration from, Stumble Guys offers a great variety of minigames, with the objective being to become the last remaining player at the end of the match. Achieving this is easier said than done, though, since you’ll have to compete against a group of players whose sole purpose is to make you lose and seize the victory for themselves. Luckily, we’re going to give you a few awesome Stumble Guys tips and tricks that will help you win your matches.
Before Beginning, Configure Your Controls
Stumble Guys is the best way to enjoy Fall Guys-esque minigames, but on your phone and completely free. However, if you want to get the best experience with this mobile game, you can also install and play it on PC with BlueStacks, our Android emulator.
Aside from letting you enjoy the best Android games on your PC, however, BlueStacks also offers a variety of tools to enhance your experience, including the Keymapping Tool, with which you can create intuitive control schemes using your mouse and keyboard. Nevertheless, before being able to use them in this game, you must first configure your controls. And for Stumble Guys, we recommend going to the settings menu, and then to the controls section, so that you can get access to a screen where you can easily customize your bindings without the stress of having to do it mid-match.
To access the Keymapping Tool, simply press Ctrl + Shift + A. Afterward, drag and drop shortcuts and functions from the rightmost panel, and place them as shown in the above picture. In this manner, you will be able to control your character with the WASD keys, jump with the spacebar, and access the emotes menu with “G”. Similarly, if you want to move the camera while running and jumping, all you have to do is click and drag on the right side of the screen, or press right click to toggle free view, a function that lets you move and control the camera simply by moving your mouse.
Configuring a good control scheme for Stumble Guys will help tremendously to win all your matches, so we recommend taking a few minutes before playing, exclusively for this purpose.
Learn to Weaponize Your Character’s Physics
The very first thing you’ll notice when you start playing Stumble Guys is how all the characters have physics: You can bump into others, block their paths with your body, or even push and knock them off ledges if they’re careless.
If you want to win at Stumble Guys, not only do you have to reach the goal in your qualifications matches, but you must also impede others from doing so. Weaponizing the game’s physics and using them to your favor allows you to knock others down and may help you to reach the goal far before the others.
Use the Game’s Obstacles to Boost Yourself
In Stumble Guys, there are two main ways of moving around: Running, and sliding. However, there’s a third and secret way of progressing through a level, which you can achieve by using the obstacles to boost yourself.
In a lot of the minigames in this title, there are spinning obstacles that you must avoid since, if you crash into them, you’ll be sent careening away in any direction. However, there’s a way to use these obstacles to your advantage. Specifically, if you’re careful enough, you can make it so that these obstacles strike you on your back after you’ve run past, which means that they will knock you forward with a burst of speed. Learning how to use these obstacles correctly can help you to turn a losing round into a resounding victory.
And just like these spinning hazards, there are other obstacles that you can use in order to save time and win all your rounds.
Sometimes, the Goal is Not To be First
Depending on the type of round you get, it could be the case that the objective is not to reach the goal, but rather to survive for as long as you can. These rounds tend to be complicated, long, and tense, especially if you’re up against players who know what they’re doing.
For example, if you’re playing the Bombardment minigame, where a pirate boat is shooting bombs at the platform where all the players are standing, the objective is to dodge the bombs and explosions and avoid falling into the water. On these occasions, you can jump, slide, and run to avoid a watery fate, but you could also try to shove other players and make them fall. On many occasions, the other players tend to stand still in a safe spot until a bomb lands near them. You can take a chance when they’re standing and distracted to slide into them and try to make them fall. But be careful because it’s very possible for you to fall alongside your victim!
Sometimes, the best way to seize the win is not by winning the round outright, but by making others lose!
Instead of Waiting, Jump!
In many of the levels in Stumble Guys, you’ll notice that there are obstacles whose sole purpose is to push you away and knock you down. A lot of these obstacles move in a predictable, rhythmic pattern, so that it’s simpler to just wait and move when they retract. However, this often takes time; time that could cost you the match, especially when there are skilled players that know how to jump over the toughest obstacles.
If you want to improve your odds of winning, we recommend that, instead of waiting, you learn to jump over certain obstacles to save time. On the vast majority of occasions, this will be the tip that will help you win matches. While everyone else waits until it’s safe to cross, you’ll be blazing through hazards like a pro.
It’s very likely that you’ll fall in the beginning—or stumble, if you will. However, the great thing about Stumble Guys is that matches are usually very short and it takes nearly no time to start the next one. And as you practice and get better, you’ll learn how to jump, slide, and dodge obstacles with ease.
