Fall Guys - How to climb and grab walls, boxes and blocks explained

One of Season 2's new games revolves around climbing - here's how to do it.

Learning how to climb in Fall Guys is something which can give you the edge in certain games.

Though it was somewhat under the radar before as far as moves go, the arrival of Season 2's Wall Guys - a game which sees you climb boxes and walls to progress - makes learning it pretty much essential.

This page explains how to climb walls in Fall Guys, from the basic controls through to how to pull it off efficiently to motor past your opponents.

How to climb in Fall Guys explained

To grab in Fall Guys, you need to press right trigger on a controller - also known as R2 on PS4 / RT on an Xbox controller - or the Shift key on a keyboard. This grab move works on anything in front of you, from objects to other players and ledges.

To climb in Fall Guys, you must press grab as you are approaching a ledge after jumping. Doing so will see you grab and hang from the corner.

From there, holding forward will see your character pull themselves up.

If you're struggling, remember to:

  • Grab the ledge when you are at the correct height
  • Once you grab on, keep holding the grab button, then keep pushing up until the animation plays out and you have scaled the wall

Ultimately - as with most other things in Fall Guys - it takes a little practice to perfect, especially when it comes to judging the height.

Thankfully, Season 2's Wall Guys game is the perfect opportunity to, excuse the pun, get to grips with this move. Once you have, you'll be zipping through matches - and earning Season 2's skins - in no time.
