Five Nights at Freddy’s: The best tips, tricks and cheats you need to know!

For many years, Five Nights at Freddy’s has been one of the best Nintendo Switch games and one of the best iPhone games you can get your hands on. Take on the role of a night security guard with a very creepy job. With limited power, you will have to survive the night without being attacked by animatronics that roam freely at night. They don’t look good on anyone not wearing an animal suit, so you’ll need to closely monitor their locations with the limited energy you have at your disposal. Surviving all five nights relies heavily on knowing your four enemies and how they move.

Here are the tips, tricks, and cheats you need to know to survive all five nights at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, whether you’re playing on Nintendo Switch, your iPhone, or iPad!

Five nights at Freddy’s

Look out for sentient animatronic animal robots at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza at night. Your job is to prevent them from entering your stand using the limited energy you have left. There are plenty of jumpscare to keep things interesting.

Five Nights at Freddy’s: Core Set

This Nintendo Switch collection includes the first four Five Nights at Freddy’s games along with Sister Location. The first sees you guarding a pizzeria, but the games eventually evolve to allow you to explore outside your stall and even in your home on the lookout for the evil animatronic robots.

Keep the doors open

Doors are the biggest waste of energy in the entire game. Of course, you could keep them closed at all times to protect yourself from enemies, but that would defeat the purpose of the game. Not to mention, this will barely take an hour before you run out of power completely.

Instead, keep the doors open at all times until you hear a character approaching or see one in the doorway. Then beat them and leave them closed until they disappear.

Use lights sparingly and only under attack

Five Nights at Freddy’s relies heavily on auditory cues. If you check cameras and turn on lights when you don’t need them, you’ll never have enough power to get through the night. Instead, when you think you hear something approaching, quickly turn your lights on and off to check the doors.

At the door on the right side, you can sometimes see something approaching in the shadows before you reach the door. This means you can completely avoid using lights and closing the door.

Find out how all your enemies move.

Enemies move differently than Freddy. Learning how they move will get you further, faster. That’s how I found out that all four enemies move during the night, except for night five, where it seems like all bets are off.

Freddy – The bear carrier with the cylinder. Freddy is harder to predict and often turns off the cameras. This is a good indication that Freddy is on the prowl. Seeing him seems to slow him down, so keep an eye on him and remember that he usually moves through the entire chamber circuit before attacking. But remember, he can kick down doors, so stopping him late at night is key.

Bonnie – Looks like a purple rabbit and always appears at the door on the left but moves randomly on cameras. She turns the light on the left side on and off if you feel Bonnie move, just to make sure they’re not already in the doorway.

girl – As expected, this is the yellow bird. He intentionally and quickly moves towards the player and always appears at the door on the right. If you see Chica in a chamber on the right side approaching you, they will soon be at the door, so be ready to close it!

sneaky – The fox that mostly stays in Pirate Cove in room 1C but doesn’t like to be looked at often. When you hear running on the left side, Foxy is attacking. She closes the door on the left. She may also see sporadic markings on camera 1C that say “I AM!” and if she sees this, she immediately closes the door on the left.

Pay attention to bright eyes.

As stated above, Freddy is hard to see on cameras. An indicator that he is in a specific room is if he sees glowing eyes. There have been times when I thought I was looking at a completely blank camera, but I caught a pair of glowing eyes, which turned out to be Freddy.

Just make sure to keep an eye on Freddy as he moves through the chambers as he will slow down his progress.

Headphones make audio signals much more noticeable

Five Nights at Freddy’s is packed with auditory information. Being able to hear footsteps approaching specifically from the left or right separately is extremely important. And when you hear rushing or other sounds, you’ll quickly learn who’s attacking and from where.

Through your iPhone or iPad’s built-in speakers, it’s sometimes impossible to tell where a character is moving, which in turn makes it more difficult to monitor the cameras. And as you can probably imagine, that means you use more energy. So, in short, use headphones whenever possible.

Again, auditory cues are key. It’s also why headphones make such a difference. You can hear feedback from the left and right channels separately, telling you exactly which side you’re facing an attack from. This makes it much easier to save energy when you can’t guess which door to slam.

Quick, short glances are key.

Except when following Freddy, short, quick glances are almost always the best. You want to limit power consumption as much as possible. In most situations, you will be able to see where the characters are with brief glances. You spend most of your time listening and only part of your time watching. I’d say an 80/20 rule would be a good guideline.

Do not spend energy until an animal takes the first step.

At the beginning of the night, all the animals are in chamber 1A. Take a quick glance here and there to see when an animal makes the first move. In other words, when one disappears. This is where you should start checking other cameras. Be sure to keep an eye on Foxy in the Pirate Bay periodically as well. And most importantly, make sure you’re listening for more attacks than you’re seeing.

Customize the AI ​​level of each robot to make things easier (or harder)

Five Nights at Freddy’s Custom Night

If you find Five Nights at Freddy’s too challenging or not challenging enough, you can change the difficulty settings for each of the four robots. To do this, go to Custom Night in the main menu. Then move the AI ​​level up or down for each robot.

Levels 0-2 : Makes the robots slower and the game much easier to play.

Levels 3-6 : Increases robot mobility, but still considered mid game.

Levels 7-12 – Makes anamatronics move a lot more and offers challenging gameplay.

Levels 13-20 : Be prepared to be regularly attacked by each of these characters. This is something you can try if you don’t want peace all night.

Activate cheats

Five Nights At Freddy’s Radar Cheats

The Nintendo Switch version allows you to select Cheats from the main menu. With these, you can choose whether to activate Unlimited Power, Fast Nights, or Radar Map.

Unlimited Power: It never runs out of power, so you can keep those lights on or those doors closed all night. This makes the game a sync to play.

Fast Nights: The hours go by twice as fast every night, so you don’t have to spend as much time looking at those cameras, listening to creepy noises and slamming doors.

Radar Map: Shows an image of each robot on the map so you know exactly where they are at all times.
