Introduction to Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location

The fifth entry in Scott Cawthon's hugely successful Five Nights at Freddy's series is called Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location, or simply FNAF 5. Released on October 7, 2016, this survival horror game diverges from the traditional mechanics of its predecessors, offering players a fresh and terrifying experience.


In FNAF 5, players assume the role of Michael Afton, who takes a job as a late-night technician at Circus Baby's Pizza World, a sister location to Freddy Fazbear's Pizza. Unlike the previous games, which focused on stationary surveillance and door management, Sister Location introduces a more interactive experience with various tasks and challenges each night. The game is set in a different location each night, revealing more about the sinister backstory of the animatronics and the Afton family.

Gameplay Mechanics

Nightly Objectives

Each night in Sister Location presents unique objectives that players must complete to survive. These tasks range from maintaining animatronic systems to navigating dark, claustrophobic spaces. The game introduces a range of animatronics, each with distinct behaviors and threats. Understanding their patterns is key to surviving the nights.


  • Circus Baby: The main antagonist who guides the player through the game. She is intelligent and manipulative, providing critical information but also posing a significant threat.
  • Ballora: A ballerina animatronic who relies on sound to locate the player. Moving quietly is essential to avoid her detection.
  • Funtime Freddy: Equipped with a puppet named Bon-Bon, Funtime Freddy requires players to manage his advances and avoid his jumpscares.
  • Funtime Foxy: Requires careful observation and timing to avoid being caught.
  • Bidybabs and Minireenas: Smaller animatronics that provide additional challenges throughout the night.

Custom Night

After completing the main game, players can access the Custom Night, which allows for the customization of animatronic difficulty levels. This mode offers additional challenges and replayability, catering to players looking for a more intense experience.
