Still trying to figure out if you really want to apply for the night shift at Fazbear's Fright? Then check out our Five Nights at Freddy’s 3 review!
One thing that all three games in the Five Nights at Freddy’s series have in common, aside from murderous animatronics, is that they each do things a little differently. Five Nights at Freddy’s 3 changes things up by paring it down to a single animatronic - only this one is a lot smarter, faster, and more dangerous.
Before we launch into the survival tips, please be aware that this guide will contain a few spoilers. The story elements and the mini-games won’t be discussed, but there are a few “events” that will be mentioned. So if you don’t want to ruin the surprise for yourself, don’t read past Night Guarding 101.
Night Guarding 101
Welcome to the night shift! You’re gonna have a blast once this place opens. You get to keep an eye on the cameras to make sure nobody tries to walk out with a piece of Fazbear history, play creepy noises to spook the guests, and you’ll even be a part of the attraction! Here’s what you need to know for your first night.
- The blue tab all the way to your right controls your CCTV monitor - Use this to keep an eye on the attraction. You can also Play Audio (more on that later), and use the Map Toggle button to watch the vents.
- The orange tab to your left controls the attraction’s three main electrical systems - Audio Devices will prevent you from using the Play Audio button if they shut down, the Camera System will prevent you from being able to see if it breaks, and if the ventilation gets screwy you’ll start to have trouble breathing and might just start to hallucinate.
- If more than one system crashes, use Reboot All - No matter how dicy things might get, it’s always faster to Reboot All rather than restart each system one after the other.
- Playing audio clips is very important - Not only will the spooky child laughter creep out potential guests, it could also be used to guide them into different areas of the attraction.
- Don’t sweat the first night - Your first night is an absolute breeze. Nothing could possibly go wrong, so take the time to familiarize yourself with the layout of Fazbear’s Fright and maybe try to get used to the time it takes to reboot the different computer systems.
