How To Fix Fall Guys Freezing / Unresponsive When Closing Or Exiting

Some Steam players have reached out to us to report that their Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout game keeps freezing while exiting. If you have this problem and you’re wondering what to do, this troubleshooting guide should help.

What causes Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout freezing issue?

There are 3 possible causes why Fall Guys may be freezing on your computer. Let’s check each of these reasons below.

Random game bug.

If Fall Guys becomes unresponsive after you click on the Exit button, it’s possible that it’s due to a random game bug. You’ll know if it’s random since the issue will not appear again. However, if you keep on experiencing the same problem every time you close Fall Guys, you will need to do some troubleshooting to fix it.

Corrupted game files.

Not all Steam players who play Fall Guys experience freezing issues when closing the game. So far, only a handful of reports have reached out about this problem so it’s not a widespread issue at all. 


If your case is not random and Fall Guys freezes all the time, it’s possible that you may be dealing with a corrupted game file. You’ll need to fix your game files to see if that will help.

Steam application issue.

The other possible cause for this problem is a faulty Steam application. If rebooting and repairing the game files have not helped, you should consider checking if it’s a Steam-related issue.
