Your role in the game will significantly influence your strategy for winning. If you’re interested in learning more, continue reading to discover some strategies for how to win as a Guardian in the Fall Guys Sweet Thieves Show.

How to Win as a Guardian in the Fall Guys Sweet Thieves Show

As a Guardian, your objective is to stop thieves from stealing candies. To win the round, you either have to send every thief to jail or prevent candies from being stolen until the game’s time limit ends. Since the thief team must steal 12 to win, you must stop them from taking all 12.

Out of these two situations, the easiest to attain is stopping thieves from taking 12 candies. While sending them to jail is not too challenging, getting all 7-8 players in at the same time is difficult when they periodically leave and re-enter the field. Instead, there are a few areas you can watch as a Guardian in Fall Guys Sweet Thieves:

  • The candy spawning areas, since this is where you’ll find the most thieves!
  • The drop-in buckets, since each thief must return to this area to hand in the candy. This is also where the jail is located.
  • Certain narrow passageways where thieves frequently travel through.
  • The center platform used to navigate around each quadrant of the map. This is also where the thief jailbreak button is!

Generally, you want to stay in one or two of these areas rather than travelling around the entire map. The main reason is that if you’re chasing someone across the map, more thieves may run past you and steal additional candies. Staying focused on one area and catching any thieves will help your team, allowing other Guardians to venture around and defend other regions.

To catch thieves, you must grab the approaching player using your grab button. Depending on your platform, this control is either Shift (PC), RT (Xbox), ZR (Switch) or R2 (PS4/5). Upon grabbing the thief, you’ll instantly send them to jail temporarily, dropping their candy in the process.

Fall Guys is available on PC, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS4, PS5, Android, and iOS devices through the official website. If you’re interested in reading more content, check out How to Add Friends and How to Play as the Among Us Bone.
