Five Nights at Freddy’s 2: Surviving the Animatronics Tips

FNAF 2 Wp1


The only way you can survive each night in Five Nights at Freddy’s 2 is knowing each of Freddy’s Friend’s traits and behavior. The animatronics will have certain behavioral patterns each night. You must keep this guide in mind if you don’t want to be killed on the first night by these murderous freakish animatronics.

The Puppet

On your first night in Five Nights at Freddy’s 2, the phone memo will play and your task is to wind up a music box. This is the only way to keep that freakish Marionette/Puppet away. If you see a small warning icon (a triangle with an exclamation point on it) at the bottom of the screen, you must go and wind up the music box. You won’t have to do this until 2am anyway, so you can relax a bit and keep an eye out on the other animatronics.

Balloon Boy

On the first night, you can sometimes hear Balloon Boy talk for a brief moment. You can use this to track his movement. When you hear him, start counting. On the fourth time he talks, you will notice him in the left air vent. When you do, you must put on your mask immediately. Be diligent and observant on the surrounding sounds. When you hear some thumping noise, take off your mask and he should be gone. You won’t need to stress about him as long as you carefully listen to the sounds he makes.

New Bonnie & New Chica

New Bonnie and New Chica are fairly easy to deal with. When checking your vents, you will see New Bonnie in your right vent and New Chica in the left one. In this case, you should quickly put on your Freddy Fuzzbear mask.

New Bonnie will just pass right in front of you when you do so. When the lights stop flickering, it means that he’s gone. On the other hand, New Chica doesn’t appear in front of you like Bonnie does, she’ll only leave the vents after a certain time. You will also hear thumping noises when she leaves. Aside from that, she appears in the hallway from time to time but won’t enter your office through there.

Old Chica & Old Bonnie

Old Bonnie and Old Chica will allow you to use the same strategy when they are in front of your desk. You should put on your mask very quickly and that would make them leave. Although, you must keep in mind that they sometimes fake their leave after staring at you for a bit. They will hide behind your desk and scare the crap out of you. So, wait a little longer.

Old Freddy & Toy Freddy

These two will enter your office through the hallway. They will sit on your desk and just like the others. To outwit them, just make sure to put on your Freddy mask and you will be fine.


On the 2nd night, the phone memo will mention something about Foxy in parts and services. You must flash your light at him when you see his snout peeking at the end of the hallway. He is afraid of light and this will make him go away. You don’t need to do it for too long though, 2 to 3 seconds will do the trick. Also, if he gets in front of your desk, that’s it for you. He won’t be fooled by your mask.


There are several ways you can send this freak away. If you see it in the hallway, treat it like Foxy with the flashlight trick. If it is in the vents, treat it like the others and put your mask on and wait for the thumping noise.

There are times as well that you won’t be aware that Mangle is creeping up on you. If you see it on your ceiling, Mangle will most likely hang its head like a possessed person. Listen to the radio static, this signals its approach. You should also rely on your reflexes here as it will attack anytime after you put up and then lower your monitor.

Golden Freddy

This murderous freak doesn’t appear until the 6th night in Five Nights at Freddy’s 2. You won’t see him appear in the cameras or vents. He will just randomly teleport into your room or the hallway without any warning. You must be very attentive with this one. When you see Golden Freddy lying in the left corner of your office or you see his head peeking in the hallway, put the mask on ASAP. He will just teleport out after a little while.
