The official Fall Guys Twitter account has been posting non-stop about a new addition to the bumble royale called Big Yeetus. It's a spinning candy-cane cartoon hammer that will randomly appear to yeet players across the level. Yeet, for our older readers, is the opposite of yoink.

The all-conquering and unavoidable Fall Guys Twitter account recently used its powers for good, raising $1 million for Special Effect (opens in new tab), a charity dedicated to improving the lives of gamers with disabilities.
