Ninja pledges $200,000 to charity for a custom skin in Fall Guys
Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins has stepped into the ring to become the current highest bidder of Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout's charity competition.
Ninja tops the Fall Guys charity donations list
The official Twitter account behind the popular new battle royale game announced on Monday that they would be hosting a two week-long competition that would see the highest bidder win the chance to have a custom-made skin inside the game for players to wear, and until now G2 Esports had reigned with a whopping $130,000 pledge.
That was, until Ninja came along and upped the stakes to $200K, even posting a picture of the proposed custom skin as made by Twitter user, @astroioxy.
Submitting his pledge, Ninja wrote to his 6.2 million followers, "I raise the bid to $200,000 in support of the charity @SpecialEffect. this bad boy would look pretty clean too."
What is the charity?
The charity chosen by Fall Guys is Special Effect. All proceeds will be donated to the organisation, who pride themselves on 'levelling the playing field for gamers with physical disabilities'.
Fall Guys responded to Ninja's generous offer, writing back "WOW @ninja coming in with a ridiculous $200k donation bid Remember, all of the money for this goes to @SpecialEffect - An awesome charity! Blown away with this support! Still 13 days to get your bids in!"
With more than over a week and a half to go until the competition comes to an end, it's likely that we'll see a lot more brands bid higher for the chance to not just help out an incredible charity, but also have their brand inducted into the Fall Guys Hall Of Fame.
