The Complete Control Guide for PS 5 and PS 4, Including Tips
Five Nights at Freddy’s is back, security holes can fix all your jump scares, and here are your control guides and tips to get you through the night.
Five Nights at Freddy’s horror series returns with eight major installations in Security Breach. While the first-person, stealth, and interactive gameplay is similar to previous games, Security Breach has a few changes to keep the game (and series) fresh.
Importantly, the security breach occurred more than one night instead of the nominal five. Freddie Fazbel is also by your side , guiding and helping you as you escape the mall – another difference from previous games. You’ll have to avoid Fazbear’s companions and safety bots or you’ll get to the end game screen.
The game is available for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, as well as PC. Future ports for the Xbox Series X}S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch should be released at a later date.
Below, you’ll find complete control over security breaches. Following the controls will provide some gameplay tips to help you escape the creepy animatronics.

Five Nights at Freddy’s Frequently Saved: Security Breach
Hold Square to save at these locations
Although it takes place over the course of one night instead of the usual five nights, Five Nights at Freddy: Security Breach is touted as the biggest game yet, with hours of gameplay. Since the in-game story is over six hours long (from 11:30pm to 6:00am), it makes sense that some of it translates to real life.
So save often! To save, go to one of the “Save Your Spot” booths and host the Square . The problem is that these save points are scattered throughout the mall, sometimes only after or before certain tricky areas. Another problem is that, as the game informs you, saving takes some time, so make sure you’re not being hunted or on patrol paths. It is recommended to save as much as possible, even if it means backtracking.
There’s also a frustrating part early in the game where you have to complete a multi-faceted quest that’s stuck in an area with savepoints…unless it malfunctions before you can complete the quest.
If you suffer a game over due to being caught, you will reload on the last save . Checkpoints and auto-save are absent in Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach, restarting a game up to 20 minutes long It’s pretty frustrating, so again, save often!
On a related note, listen to Fazbear’s advice! If you’re playing on silent – one of the deprecated games – then enable subtitles. Fazbear will direct you to your next destination and provide warnings, so heed his words so you don’t have to reload!

Five Nights at Freddy’s: Stay in Incognito Mode as Much as You Can in Security Breach
An overview of stealth mechanics
Since the game is about surviving until morning to escape, stealth is essential for you to avoid detection. You’re trapped in little Gregory, who somehow got help from Fazbear — though the bear can’t even explain why Hey helped you early in the game. By going stealthy with the R3 , you can check your status as you walk through the mall.
If your figure crouching in the corner has a blue outline , then you won’t be detected. If it has a yellow outline , then a Fazbear friend or security bot is searching for you. If it’s red , then you need to run and chase you as they find out.
Sometimes stealth is not needed, and using L3 sprint is the best option. There are even points in the game where you are forced to stay away from your potential captors. Still, especially in the tight spaces of stores and areas within malls, stealth is recommended. Some places will require you to enter crouch stealth to continue.
If you’re sprinting but feel like you could run faster, make sure you’re still not invisible and the crouching figure isn’t on your screen. While you can still sprint stealthily, it’s much slower than regular sprints.
Cameras will be key to driving ‘Five Nights at Freddy’s: A Security Breach’
Montgomery Alligator, knock!
By entering the Fazwatch menu (triangle, touchpad) , you can access cameras around the mall, which will soon be in the game when you get to the safe room. You’ll also notice other options in Fazwatch: Maps, Missions, and Messages . Note that green stars indicate new missions or mission objectives.
On the minimap to the right of the image above, you can see three small black rectangles clustered together with orange player markers to indicate your (Gregory) location. You can use the arrow keys to cycle between cameras. This will give you a better view of not only your surroundings, but also your pursuers.
When the animatronic baddies — Montgomery Crocodile, Roxanne Wolfe, and Gramrock Chika — use the camera, all patrol modes become apparent. The security robots scattered across the mall also have clear routes. Take advantage of this.
If you know you need to go upstairs and to the left (you will), wait until Chica turns upstairs to the right and dash to the stairs to the left while avoiding the robot’s flashlight. Then, sneak up the stairs and keep going.
Five Nights at Freddy’s: A Security Breach Where to Hide and Distractions
You also sometimes need to use hidden spaces in conjunction with cameras. These spaces can be large litter boxes, photo booths, or even strollers. To enter the hideout, press the square on the spot . Crucially, you can still use the camera from the hideout so you can time your escape.
Be careful because enemies who see you entering a hidden space will find you. There’s nothing more creepy than your hideout being invaded by those big eyes and jump scares.
At other times, you need to create a noisy distraction to open your way so as not to be hindered by your captors. To get distracted, get close to a group of cans (or something similar) and press Square. This will cause them to tip over and cause a commotion.
The first instance in the game requires you to tip over the can to force Chica out of the bathroom so you can exit. As you walk out the other side of the bathroom, you notice Chica has her back turned to you as she examines the fallen can.
You need to be distracted at other times, not only to keep going, but to open up the sections you need to enter or re-enter by pulling the patrol away from the area.
Collect messages for tips when you get stuck
Message from Freddy!
Throughout the mall, you’ll find two types of interactive collectibles: Bags and Gift Boxes . Bags hold information, while Gift Boxes contain key items for Gregory – like the photos needed to free Fazbear from his room Pass.
The problem is that these bags – at least they look like duffel bags – are usually located in highly patrolled areas . If you’re going to get these, the trick is to make sure that any friends and bots of Fazbear just get in their way away from the bag. Dash forward, hold Square to collect, then sprint.
Messages contain information from former clients, employers, etc. that can give you insight into the mall and, at times, tips on how to move forward . On the main plaza near the customer service and gift shop, a message tells you to receive from the gift box the importance of magnets.
Another benefit is that you can see these boxes and bags through the camera if their view is not obstructed. This can help you plan where you want to go – if the area is already open – or mark it down for future retrieval.
Here’s everything you need to know to start your trek as Gregory and Fazbear until the mall reopens in the morning. Remember: Stealth, cameras, hiding places and distractions are the keys to your survival. A good sprint will sometimes exceed these four – if you run away. Anyway, how will you play Gregory Jr. in Five Nights at Freddy’s: A Security Breach?
