FALL Guys players reported a bug that automatically purchases items from the store when you preview them.
At the end of June, the Knockout Battle Royale Fall Guys went free-to-play and soon after, on July 5th, a new item shop launched.
Since then, however, over 70 players (and counting) have reported encountering a glitch that automatically purchases items when on the preview page.
While there’s no way to confirm if this is really a bug or simply player error, the number of people claiming the same issues likely puts it at fault Game.
It lists all of the comments on the subreddit reporting these issues and what they claim could be causing them.
According to the thread, there are three main issues with loading.
First, there’s the obvious problem of items being bought automatically when you go to the preview screen.
This can be an error or caused by buffered keystrokes. When using the store it is important to be careful and navigate slowly.
Second, people claim that a purchase was confirmed when they pressed a button that isn’t listed as a confirmation button.
This can be caused by hidden key bindings where more than one key is assigned the same function.
The final issue is items that appear in the shop as purchasable with the in-game currency Kudos, but are then actually purchased with Show Bucks, ie real money.
When using the shop, it is important that you verify the currency used at each stage before clicking “Buy”.
Developer Mediatonic is now aware of the problem and says they are checking it out.
Players affected by these issues have contacted customer support to claim back their lost Show Bucks.
In other free-to-play games like Fortnite, you can automatically return a number of products in the event of an accidental purchase.
However, this is not the case with Fall Guys, where all transactions are final.
A user claims that he was sent a rude email by support staff when contacting them for a refund.
Mediatonic has released small patches since Fall Guys went free to play.
The last one disabled one of the game rounds.
