FNAF 2 known as Five Nights At Freddy's 2 is a great horror game with new gameplay. Use a mascot to avoid animatronics and survive for 5 haunting nights?

Five Nights At Freddy's

Five Nights At Freddy's is a bone-chilling standout among horror games because it features hauntingly addictive gameplay. This survival horror game series was created by Scott Cawthon, a talented American video game developer. It is famous for not only a unique concept but also a horror story about a death case. The first installment of the Five Nights at Freddy's series introduced players to the haunting world of Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, a seemingly innocent children's restaurant with a dark secret. You assume the role of a night security guard whose task is to survive five nights against animatronic characters that come to life with murderous intent. As the series progressed, subsequent installments introduced new locations, characters, and storylines, further deepening the lore of this horror series. From the claustrophobic environments of a sister location to the twisted time-traveling narratives, each game offered you a fresh and chilling experience. The introduction of animatronic variations, secret mini-games, and hidden easter eggs added layers of mystery and intrigue, enticing you to unravel the dark secrets that underlie the franchise.

Beyond its jump scares and terrifying gameplay, the FNAF games explore compelling themes and symbolism. The series delves into concepts such as isolation, the blurred line between reality and fantasy, the consequences of unchecked ambition, and the consequences of tampering with forces beyond our control. Through its intricate storytelling, the series manages to create an immersive experience that leaves you questioning your own perceptions and the nature of the world you inhabit.

The release of Five Nights At Freddy's 2

Five Nights At Freddy's 2 is the second edition published in November 2014 because the developer realized the unexpected success of the first version. The next installment tasks you with staying alive for five nights, but you cannot close the doors of the office. It means that the gameplay of this game changes a little bit. Besides its fresh gameplay, this game also has a new feature. The developer added four 8-bit mini-games at the end of the game. This has captivated many players from all over the world one more time. Initially, the game was released on Steam, Desura, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and the Nintendo Switch. However, now it is available on the web browser and playable on all devices such as PC, iOS, and Android devices.

Addictive story

One of the key strengths of the Five Nights at Freddy's franchise lies in its intricate lore and compelling storytelling, and the second installment is no exception. The story of this version is about Jeremy Fitzgerald. After the security guard of Freddy Fazbear's Pizza is fired in the first version, the manager of the restaurant posts a job advertisement. He wants to hire a new security guard, so Jeremy is employed. In fact, there is a secret that the manager untells. Although the animatronics in the restaurant are programmed with facial recognition software to protect kids from potential hazards, they are not turned off at night. Therefore, they will wander around the restaurant. At the end of Night 6, the secret will be revealed. The restaurant is inspected by the police. Therefore, the restaurant will temporarily shut down and Jeremy will be fired.

Gripping gameplay of FNAF 2

Building upon the success of its predecessors, the game introduces innovative mechanics and challenges that immerse you in a world of animatronic terror. You should try playing this game to explore its heart-pounding gameplay now.

Working as a night guard

At the start of the game, you will see a hiring news in the newspaper. The pizza restaurant Freddy Fazbear's Pizza was revamped and the manager of the restaurant wants to hire a security guard. You will play as Jeremy Fitzgerald who applied for this position. You are tasked with protecting the pizza restaurant for five nights and you will be paid a lot of money. However, everything in this game is not as simple as it sounds. At night, the animatronics will be active and roam around the restaurant. Of course, they will enter your office regularly. If they see you in the office, they will attack you. Therefore, you should be careful when working here. You can turn on the camera system to spot the position of the animatronics. In fact, there are three ways to evade the attacks of the animatronics.

  • Utilize the flashlight: You should shine the flashlight into the center hallway to chase the animatronics away.
  • Wind up the music box: You also need to wind up the music box regularly to stop the animatronics from rising from their present box.
  • Wear the mascot: If you find that any animatronic sneaks into your office, you should be quick to wear this mascot and keep silent. This is the best way to fool the animatronics. After the animatronics do not see you, they will leave. At this time, you can take off the mascot.

Surviving tension-filled nights

As its name suggests, you are hired to protect the newly decorated Freddy Fazbear's Pizza for five nights. During five nights, the animatronics will constantly enter your office. After surviving for five nights, you will receive a paycheck. However, the game will stop there. Because of your great performance, you are hired to protect the pizza restaurant for two more nights. Many players considered Night 7 as the most challenging night because all animatronics will sneak into your office regularly. In addition, on the sixth night, you will not hear the phone call or audio recording. Freddy Fazbear's Pizza is inspected by the police. As a staff member, Jemery is informed that the pizza restaurant will temporarily shut down and he will be fired.

The terrifying presence of animatronics in FNAF 2

Animatronics In FNAF 2

This game takes the Five Nights At Freddy's franchise to new heights of terror with its array of lifelike and malevolent animatronics. In this game, you will encounter not only old animatronics such as Freddy Fazbear, Chica, Foxy, Bonnie, and Golden Freddy but also new animatronics. The new animatronics are Golden Freddy, Toy Freddy, Toy Chica, Balloon Boy, and the Mangle. Each animatronic is meticulously crafted to resemble friendly entertainers but with a haunting twist. Let's explore their features and behaviors now.

Freddy Fazbear and Toy Freddy

The first animatronic in this horror game is Freddy Fazbear. He looks like a giant teddy. On the third night, he is more active. You can see him through CAM 08, CAM 07, and CAM 03. Then, he will enter your office after Chica and Bonnie leave. Therefore, do not take off the Freddy Fazbear mask after Chica and Bonnie get out of your office. Instead, you should wait for Freddy to leave your office.

The next one is Toy Freddy which looks like a mini version of Freddy Fazbear. On the first, second, fifth, and sixth nights, he will be active. However, on the third and fourth nights, he will be inactive. You can turn on CAM 09 and CAM 10 to spot Toy Freddy. When he stands in the hall outside your office, you need to put on the mask until he leaves.

Golden Freddy

On the sixth night, Golden Freddy will appear. Therefore, many players joke that he is a cameo in this game. If you see him slumped in your office, you should put on your mascot immediately. If he appears in the hallway, you should stop shining your flashlight and wind up the music. These methods will help to ward Golden Freddy off.


If you wonder which is the most aggressive animatronic in this game, the answer is Foxy. On the second night, Foxy will start to roam around the restaurant and enter your office. You can see him through CAM 08. If you see him in the hallway, you flash your flashlight constantly in order to ward him away. However, when he successfully comes into your office, he can disable your flashlight. Therefore, try to stop Foxy from entering your office at all costs. Note that wearing the mask is not a good way because Foxy is able to take off your mask and kill you. Moreover, you should not let all lights off in your office because this is a great chance for Foxy to kill you.

Chica and Toy Chica

In this new version, Chica loses her hands. On the third night, Chica will appear and enter your office to kill you. On the rest nights, she will be more active. You can turn on CAM 08, CAM 04, CAM 06, and CAM 02 to find her. Like Freddy Fazbear, she can be easily fooled when you put on the mask. Therefore, if you see her in the left side vent, you should immediately wear the mask. However, if you shine the flashlight into the hallway and see her, don't worry. She will not attack you when she stands in the hallway. To chase her away, you should keep flashing your flashlight into her.

The mini version of Chica is Toy Chica which looks cuter and more feminine. She often emerges on the first, second, fifth, and sixth nights. You can see her through CAM 09, CAM 07, CAM 04, CAM 01, and CAM 05. When you hear sounds banging on metal, it means that Toy Chica is near your office. You should wear the mask until she disappears.

Bonnie and Toy Bonnie

Like Chica, Bonnie in this second edition also loses his left hand and starts to appear on the third night and onwards. Through CAM 08, CAM 07, CAM 01, and CAM 05, you can see him. After that, when you see him in the side vent, you should immediately put on your mascot to evade his attack. Sometimes, he pretends to leave your office and hides behind the desk. Therefore, don't rush to take off your mascot when they disappear from your vision.

Toy Bonnie seems to be the mini version of Bonnie. He appears after the end of the second night at 2 am. You can spot him by turning on CAM 09, CAM 03, CAM 04, CAM 02, and CAM 06. If the lights in your office flicker, it means that Toy Bonnie is in the vent and about to enter your office. At this time, you had better wear the mask and wait for him to get out of your office.

Balloon Boy

The new animatronic in this game is Balloon Boy who looks like a boy toy. On the second night, you will hear a laughing sound and creepy hello sounds. It means that Balloon Boy appears and moves towards your office. If you hear a vent banging sound, it means that he is in the vent and about to enter your office. In fact, this toy animatronic is not dangerous because he will not kill you. Instead, if he sees you in the office, he will laugh at you. However, he also makes all lights in the office turn off and this is a good opportunity for Foxy to murder you. Therefore, you still should put on the mask when he enters your office. If he does not see you, he will leave immediately.

The Mangle

One more new animatronic in this version is The Mangle. In fact, The Mangle is the remake of Foxy. However, it was still incomplete, so he had one eye, a Foxy-like head, and metal bones. You can see him through CAM 12, CAM 11, CAM 10, CAM 07, and CAM 06. He really likes creating the noise. Therefore, when you hear the noise in the vent, you should wear the Freddy Fazbear head. Note that The Mangle can hide in the ceiling, so you should be careful.

The Puppet

The Puppet is introduced in this second installment. She is thin, black, and has a white face. Normally, she stays in a present box. The only way to stop the Puppet from appearing is to wind up the music box constantly. When the music stops, you will see a warning sign on the bottom right of the screen. At this time, you should be quick to wind up the music box. If you do not do that, the Puppet can get out of the present box, sneak into your office, and assassinate you.

The Enigmatic Ending of Five Nights at Freddy's 2

Playing The Death Mini-games

Unlike the first installment, this game has a new feature which is mini-games. After staying alive for seven nights at the restaurant Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, you will join these mini-games. These mini-games have different playing rules and end with jumpscares, except for the SAVETHEM mini-game.

  • SAVETHEM: In this mini-game, you need to guide Freddy Fazbear to go around and meet Golden Freddy. Or you will meet the Purple Guy in the party room, the main hall, or at the end of the room. If you see them, it means that you lose. If you want to win this mini-game, you should follow The Puppet.
  • Give Gifts, Give Life: In this mini-game, you will transform into The Puppet who is tasked with giving the four dead kids the prepared gifts. Then, you will return to the middle of the room. When the sentence 'Give Life' appears at the top of the screen, you need to approach four dead kids again. At this time, the animatronics' masks will emerge on the heads of the children. After that the sentence H-E-L-P-T-H-E-M will appear. The mini-game will end with the jumpscare of Golden Freddy and the mysterious emergence of the fifth dead body in the middle of the room.
  • Take Care To The Children: Compared to the previous mini-games, this mini-game has a scarier gameplay. The third mini-game requires you to transform into Freddy Fazbear and serve a cake to six kids. However, these kids seem to be afraid of you. Their faces will turn green when you approach them. Suddenly, one of the kids cries. The Purple Guy will appear and murder this crying kid. You are required to save this kid, but your movements become slower. Finally, when you cannot move, The Puppet's jumpscare can scare you.
  • Foxy Go! Go! Go!: In this final mini-game, you will become Foxy whose mission is to get out of the curtained Pirate Cove. After leaving it, you will enter a room filled with five kids. They are happy when you appear. However, then, you are teleported to the Pirate Cove. Do your best to get out of the Pirate Cove as soon as possible. At the end of the mini-game, when you successfully come into the party room, you will see five dead bodies. The Purple Guy stands in the corner of the room and smiles creepily. This mini-game ends with Foxy's jumpscare.

Controls: Press the WASD or arrow keys to guide the character to play the mini-games.

Revealing a shocking secret

If the first version of the FNAF series introduces four animatronics, Five Nights At Freddy's 2 will reveal their origin. Especially, after playing four mini-games, you can see some clues about the creepy story behind the Five Nights At Freddy's series. I played and tried to gather all the clues in the game. Here are my hypotheses about the secret story behind the game.

  • On the seventh night, a layoff letter is shown. This layoff letter informs that Friitz Smith was fired because of tampering with animatronics. It means that besides Jemery Fitzgerald, Friitz Smith is also a security guard at the pizza restaurant. I guess that the manager of this restaurant knows the unusual behaviors of the animatronics and tries to hide a great secret.
  • If you carefully see your paycheck that is displayed on the sixth night, you can realize that the game takes place in 1987. I believe that the event 'The Bite 87' which is mentioned in the first installment takes place in the second edition. It means that The Bite 87 is the case of the death of five kids.
  • After playing the mini-games, you can easily realize that the killer who murdered five kids is The Purple Guy.


In a nutshell, FNAF 2 continues to push the boundaries of horror gaming. This captivates you with its evolving gameplay mechanics, deepening lore, scary story, and immersive atmosphere. Scott Cawthon's creation has successfully carved its place in the gaming industry, captivating a dedicated fan base and inspiring a community of enthusiasts. This game stands as a testament to the power of horror games to captivate and thrill players, taking them on a suspenseful journey into the depths of animatronic terror.
