Racing in Stumble Guys is anything but fair – in fact, the game encourages you to get in the way of your rivals smooth running sessions.
One way to do that is by punching and grabbing your opponents. You probably already saw other players do that, but have no idea how this mechanic works. And that’s because the way to punch and grab is intentionally hidden.
How to Punch and Grab in Stumble Guys
Both punching and grabbing is done by using specific emotes, unlocked via the Stumble Pass. Once used, the emotes will cause your character to execute a corresponding action.
Punching emote (which looks like a boxer glove) will cause other players in its vicinity to get knocked back, sometimes making them fall out of the stage entirely.
While the innocently-looking Hugging emote (looks like a heart) will grab the player, allowing the other character to carry them wherever they want – usually in front of a cliff.
There are two ways to unlock those emotes for yourself. One of them will require you to gather stars by playing the game, which will unlock different bonuses in in the Stumble Pass.
One of the unlockables are the aforementioned emotes, and they are by far the most useful ones.
Paying With Gems
If you don’t have the patience to gather stars, you can also use gems to unlock the emotes faster. Gems can be obtained in small quantity by watching in-game advertisements, but you can also buy them with real money.
Here’s an in-depth guide on how to get more gems in Stumble Guys.
Either way, you should skip most of the cosmetics unlocked via Stumble Pass and focus on getting these two emotes to get the best out of your investments – either way, you should get a free skin every day.

Valkyrie Elysium: How to Defeat Naglfar Eygon
The Naglfar Eygon is a giant spider-looking boss which is essentially the very first boss that you will encounter in Valkyrie Elysium.
Valkyrie Elysium follows the adventure of Maria who is a valkyrie tasked with completing assignments for Odin. As you play through the game, you’ll come across several bosses that will hinder you from progressing further.
One such boss is Naglfar Eygon who will be your very first boss encounter. Beating it might be hard if you’re a complete newbie. Luckily, I’ve created this guide to help you out.
How to Defeat Naglfar Eygon in Valkyrie Elysium
At the start of the fight, Eygon will always initiate the fight by charging forward. You want to evade this attack properly in order to avoid taking damage at the start of the fight.
If you’re brave enough, you can also drive interrupt him by performing precious guards. This way, you can get in a few hits right before the boss recovers. However, only do this if you’re skilled enough as it can be too risky if you failed to pull it off.
During the fight, make sure to move sideways in order to position yourself in a way that you can freely attack its rear. It’s also ideal to use Grave Edge in order to build up its Crush meter.
Once the gauge fills up, it will incapacitate the boss, giving you the opportunity to get a few hits in.
Don’t spam your Grave Edge. Instead, you want to wait for the boss’s Crush meter to go down before you attempt to do the move once again. Make sure to back off a short distance once the boss gets back up.
If you stay close enough, it will release an electric shockwave which can deal a decent amount of damage.
Pay attention to the boss’s sword arm, as it will wind it up when it’s ready to perform a sword attack. you can either guard or dodge away. Also, make sure to move in and out of its range. If you stay close long enough, the boss will perform a grab attack that’s impossible to dodge or block.
Concluding the Fight
The boss has two long health bars, but the entire fight is actually easy but still challenging enough. You just have to keep on attacking the boss’s rear and using Grave Edge to incapacitate it. Don’t forget to heal up in the event that you took a huge chunk of damage from one of its attacks.
