Five Nights at Freddy's 3

2015 point-and-click survival horror video game

2015 video game

Five Nights at Freddy's 3 is an indiesurvival horrorvideo game developed and published by Scott Cawthon. It is the third installment in the Five Nights at Freddy's series, and takes place in a horror-themed attraction based on the restaurant featured in the previous two games. The player takes on the role of a security guard who must defend themselves from a decrepit green rotting animatronic called Springtrap that William Afton has been trapped inside and inhabits the attraction.

Cawthon first teased a third Five Nights at Freddy’s installment on his website in January 2015. The game was released on Steam on March 2, 2015, for Android devices on March 6, 2015, and for iOS devices on March 12, 2015. Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One ports were released on November 29, 2019.

The game received mixed reviews from critics, who praised the game’s mechanics, but criticized it for its lackluster jumpscares and for lacking the charm of its predecessors. The fourth game in the series, Five Nights at Freddy's 4, was released on July 23, 2015.

The gameplay deviates from the previous games of the series slightly. In keeping with the first two installments, players are tasked with surviving night shifts as a security guard, with each night lasting from 12 a.m. to 6 a.m. (a few minutes of real time). However, unlike the previous two games, only one animatronic is able to attack the player and end the game. Several animatronics from earlier games return as "phantoms" that cannot harm the player directly, but can hinder their efforts to survive the night.

The game takes place in a horror-themed attraction through which a single animatronic called "Springtrap" roams. The player must monitor two separate security camera systems, one for the rooms and corridors throughout the facility, and one for the ventilation ductwork, in order to track Springtrap's movements. They can seal off the air vents at certain points to block Springtrap’s progress towards the office, but the door or air vent that lead directly into the office remain permanently open. In addition to observing the camera systems, the player must watch the status of three operating systems and reboot them whenever they malfunction. These systems control the cameras, a set of audio devices that can be used to lure Springtrap away from the player's position, and the facility's ventilation. The camera and audio systems malfunction after prolonged or repeated usage. The ventilation system fails at random, or when a "phantom" animatronic jumpscares the player. Some of these animatronics can also cause audio and camera failure; for instance "Phantom Mangle" can affect audio as well as ventilation. Failure to keep the latter running can cause the player to momentarily lose vision as well as hallucinate and see multiple animatronics in the building. If Springtrap enters the office, he jumpscares the player and the game ends.

The game consists of five nights, increasing in difficulty, and completing all five unlocks an even more challenging "Nightmare" night. Going through the game normally grants a star at the fifth night. Several Atari-style minigames are also playable within the main game; completing all of them unlocks the game's "good ending" and grants access to bonus content as well as a second star. If the player completes the "Nightmare" night, they will unlock the cheat menu and a third star. The cheat menu offers a range of options, including a mode to make the animatronics more aggressive and increase the game's difficulty. Other cheats include a radar to track Springtrap and the ability to decrease the length of nights. Completing the "Nightmare" night with only the aggressive cheat enabled grants the fourth star.


The player assumes the role of a newly-hired employee at Fazbear's Fright, a horror-themed attraction inspired by the family restaurant “Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza” that closed thirty years prior. During the week before the attraction’s official opening, the employee must watch over the facility from a security office each night from 12 a.m. to 6 a.m., using a network of surveillance cameras placed in rooms and air vents. They must monitor the status of three operating systems – cameras, audio and ventilation – and reboot them whenever they begin to malfunction. Camera problems cause the camera feeds to become totally obscured by static, and if ventilation fails, the employee’s vision begins to black out. The employee may also see hallucinatory “phantom” animatronics that resemble animatronics from the restaurant franchise, which can cause system malfunctions but cannot directly harm the player.

After the first night, the staff at Fazbear's Fright uncover an older deteriorated, rabbit-like animatronic named Springtrap; the employee must thereafter prevent it from entering the office and attacking. As the nights progress, the employee hears a series of instructional cassette tapes that instruct employees how to operate animatronic suits which can function as both an animatronic and a costume for humans. The tapes also discuss a "safe room," an additional emergency room which "is not included in the digital map layout programmed in the animatronics or the security cameras, is hidden to customers, invisible to animatronics, and is always off-camera”.

However, recordings on later nights discourage use of the suits. The recording on the fourth night states the suits are no longer considered suitable for employees following "an unfortunate incident at the sister location involving multiple and simultaneous spring lock failures." To replace the faulty suits, the recording states that temporary costumes would be provided, although questions about their appropriateness should be avoided. The recording which plays during fifth night reminds employees that the safe room is for employees only, and that customers should never be taken there. Also, after discovering that one of the special suits was "noticeably moved," it reminds employees that the suits are considered unsafe to wear.

Atari-style minigames playable between nights hint provide insight into the restaurant’s lore. The first four nights' minigames depict animatronics from the previous two games following a dark purple animatronic before being violently disassembled by a purple-coloured figure, previously seen in the minigames of Five Nights at Freddy's 2. In the fifth night's minigame, what appear to be ghosts of children corner the purple figure, who seeks protection by hiding in a yellow rabbit suit. However, the suit's spring-lock mechanism fails; crushing the man in the process, and the children fade away, leaving the figure to seemingly bleed to death.

Unlike the previous games, Five Nights at Freddy's 3 contains two endings, depending on whether the player has found and completed all of the hidden minigames within the main game. Some of these are only available on specific nights, while others can be accessed during any night. The "bad ending" is attained by completing the game without completing all the hidden minigames, and shows a screen depicting the heads of the five animatronics from the first game with lit-up eyes. Completing all the hidden minigames before completing the game earns the "good ending", which is the same screen as described previously but with the animatronics' eyes not lit up, and with one head missing. This screen has been speculated to suggest the souls of children killed by the purple figure and possessing the restaurant’s animatronics have been put to rest.

In the sixth "Nightmare" night, an archived recording states that all Freddy Fazbear's Pizza locations' safe rooms will be permanently sealed, instructing employees that they are "not to be mentioned to family, friends or insurance representatives”. When the night is completed, a newspaper clipping reveals that Fazbear's Fright was destroyed in a fire shortly after the events of the game, and that any salvageable items from the attraction are to be auctioned off. However, brightening the image reveals Springtrap in the background, implying its survival.


In January 2015, a new image was uploaded to Scott Cawthon's website, teasing a third entry in the series.[2] A short while later, a second image was released, depicting the redesigned animatronics from the second game apparently scrapped.[3] Various teaser images followed, before a trailer was released on January 26, 2015.[4] The game was posted (and later accepted) onto Steam Greenlight the same day.[5]

A demo for the game was released to selected YouTubers on March 1, 2015, with the full game being released hours later on March 2, 2015.[6] On March 6, 2015, a mobile port was released for Android devices,[7] and for iOS on March 12, 2015.[8] Ports for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One were released on November 29, 2019.[9]



Metacritic's aggregate reviews for Five Nights at Freddy's 3 has received an average score of 68 out of 100.[10]

Omri Petitte from PC Gamer gave Five Nights at Freddy's 3 a score of 77 out of 100, praising the reworked camera system and Springtrap, but commenting on how the jumpscares from the other animatronics "felt a little stale by the third night." In a more critical review, Nic Rowen from Destructoid gave the game a 6.5 out of 10, stating that although he saw the game as "by far the most technically proficient and mechanically satisfying installment yet," he disliked Springtrap and Fazbear’s Fright for lacking the "charm of the original cast and locations."

Guide for FNAF 3

Night 1: This night is too easy. No animatronic comes out on this night. You don't have to worry about a lot. There are two buttons on the bottom: The one to the right pulls up the camera, and the one to the left pulls up a control center. If your lights start blinking red, go to the control center and click on the one that has a red blinking error next to it. Check the control center every once and a while and click on the ones that have a blinking error next to it. If all 3 are malfunctioning, click the reboot all button at the bottom

Night 2: Here is where things start happening. Scan the cameras and look for the one animatronic. HE IS VERY SNEAKY! He hides in the cameras and sometimes you can only see his hand or leg. He usually appears in camera 10 first and then slowly progresses toward you. If he gets to cam 8 or 7, go to camera 10 and press the "play audio" button to make balloon boy laugh. Spring trap will be drawn to the noise and go to that camera. If you can't find springtrap, click the toggle map button to go to the ventilation cameras. If  you see him in one, quickly double tap the vent camera he is in to seal it off, making him leave the vent and go back to the normal cameras. If you look at cam 10 or 1, you have a chance of finding phantom balloon boy. If you see him peering up into a camera, quickly press the toggle map button. If you fail to do this, he will jumpscare you but not kill you. Only springtrap's jumpscare can kill you. If you see a animatronic that looks like freddy walking across your hall in front of you, look left and right until he makes it to the other side. If you see the marionette standing in camera 6, you can't avoid him. If you go to cam 7 and see chica's face in the arcade game, you can't avoid her either. Just remember that the phantom animatronics can not kill you, only springtrap can. Just remember to keep checking the control center and fixing the errors.

Night 3: Keep doing what you did last night, but there is a chance of encountering two different animatronics. Phantom foxy and phantom mangle. Phantom foxy appears in your office when you have the cameras up for too long. Phantom mangle appears either in cam 5 or cam 2. If you see her, she will pop her head in front of your glass window and let out a very shrill sound. If you encounter her, she will shut down your audio.
Image result for phantom mangle
Night 4: This night is outrageously hard. All phantom animatronics are active and appear very often. Your errors trigger every 30-45 seconds, making you multitask. Springtrap iv very active and aggressive, sticking to the vents. He will use the vents the most. Getting jumpscared by a phantom brings springtrap 1 or 2 cameras closer to you, so try to avoid cams 1, 2 and 7.

Night 5: Your "last night" on the job. Yeah, we all know that you are gonna surprise us with another 2 nights. Anyway, This night is extreme. All animatronics are crazily active and aggressive. Make sure to avoid cams 1, 10 and 7. Only check your cams for 5 seconds at a time to avoid foxy. Make sure to fix the errors and seal the vents if you see springtrap in one. Play the audio and watch your back. I wish you luck!

FNaF 3 - Springtrap's Movements and the FNaF 3 location.


I'm Nightfrost the Nightwing and you might know me from some other aminos and also as MarinTheSeawing on Deviantart and Instagram.

Nice to meet you!

-•○●Onto today's topic: FNaF 3●○•-

Warning: This post contains information mostly based on my personal experience and on gameplays that I've seen of the FNaF 3 game and isn't a guide on how to beat it.

Now, one of my favorite fnaf games is probably FNaF 3 as it is one that I've tried and even if it actually doesn't scare me anymore, It is still one of my favorites because of a lovely character named Springtrap.

And he can be annoying from time to time until you figure him out.

And here I am to look more into the movements of Springtrap and the FNaF 3 location.


As we all know there are two layers of the FNaF 3 location, When playing you need to check the cameras in the different rooms and the vents.

One thing that I've experienced when playing this game, is that Springtrap very often goes into the vents, especially when I'm rebooting a system.

The vent that he usually goes into is the one at camera 09 in the other end of the building.

As said, this is what I've experienced.

I usually deal with that by sealing that specific vent as soon as I start the game and then go on to keeping Springtrap between 2 cameras, usually sending him between camera 08 and 09.

Keeping him between cam 08 & 09 usually makes him go into the vent by cam 09 whenever I reboot a system and as said before, that vent is already sealed off which means that he can't get to me that way.

I have experienced that he very rarely tries to go to the vent by cam 10 when im rebooting a system after keeping him at cam 08 & 09 which of course is a good thing.


One thing that I've noticed when watching gameplays of FNaF 3 on youtube (Markiplier, Jacksepticeye & Pewdiepie mainly) is that Springtrap tends to walk a bit more and not climbing into the vents as often as I've experienced personally.

One big difference between my experience and their experience with the game and Springtrap is the device that is used to play the game on. This might not be true and this is only a theory, but I am suspecting that Springtrap moves differently on different devices as he seems to be in the vents more often when using a mobile device instead of a pc.

Anyway, one thing that probably a lot of people noticed is that you can only lure Springtrap to a camera that is next to the one where he currently is and the location of the cameras can be very good to know if you want to beat the night.

If you know where the cameras is compared to where you are and in which direction that you are facing, you should have a higher chance of beating the game.

For example:

Cam 01 is right outside the office door. When Springtrap is standing in your door looking at you, you shouldn't try to lure him to cam 01 as he will come back no matter what you do as it is still outside your door.

Instead you should send him to Cam 02 because that is beside your window that's right in front of you as it will take him more time to come to you that way.

It is also a lot easier to lure him even further away from you that way, giving you more time to reboot any systems that may go offline.

Here is a map of the location:

This is where Springtrap usually starts in the game:

user uploaded image

I usually try to keep him by cam 08 & 09 so he doesn't go into the cam 10 vent by playing the audio.

user uploaded image

That means that he can basically only access this vent which only leads him outside the office in the corner and I always keep that vent sealed so he doesn't go in there.

user uploaded image

However if he goes into this vent, there is no way to stop him if you don't seal the vent in time as it goes straight into your office.

And if you don't stop him...

Game Over.


Thx for reading this theory and hopefully also for welcoming me at this amino!

If you discover that I might have messed up something or I missed something, please comment so I can know what I did wrong!

Also feel Free to comment your thoughts on this and if you've got a theory on your own or if you have something else that you want me to know!

I hope that you have a nice day and see ya next time!

How do I keep Springtrap away from the office in FNAF 3?

You have to lure Springtrap away one camera at a time. If he's in CAM 01, or the window you have to try CAM 02 and hope for the best. But generally, if he reaches there, and you aren't at 5:00 AM, you're doomed. Even if you are at 5:00 AM, you'll probably die.

The trick is to keep him in CAM 7 and CAM 8, and keep the vent that leads to you from CAM 7 closed. Some reasons this is your best bet:

It's far enough away from you that you have a nice buffer if he does get closer. You only have to worry about one vent, which you can keep permanently closed. It's not CAM 10 which has really quick access to your office. If you see a phantom on the monitor change the CAM quick. This will make it so their jumpscare isn't triggered.

Also, if he's gotten to your door quickly, you may want to consider revising your priorities for resets. My personal opinion is as follows:

Audio (You can't fend him off any other way.) Ventilation (He can sneak in when you're having your short blackouts.) Cameras (You can always guess at where he is.)

In cameras springtrap

If the title left you confused, it's because what happened left me confused. So:

After a perfectly normal Night 4 I play Night 5. Just for the sake of it, I do the Shadow Bonnie minigame. When I restart Night 5 to complete it, this happens. And a heads up, I attempted multiple times with the same results:

12AM - Nothing out of the ordinary, just playing around with Springtrap and stunlocking him on CAM 10.
1AM - One of the Phantoms jumpscares me without any warning (generally BB right after seeing him, I don't even have the physical time to switch Camera to avoid him).

From now on, whatever I do, Springtrap will ignore the Audio Decoy, even when used in a nearby room, and will appear simultaneously on different Cameras; yes, even distant ones (he shouldn't be able to appear on CAM10, CAM9, CAM8 and CAM2 at the same time). Death is at this point inevitable, since I can't really lure him away.

Has this happened to anybody else?

How to Beat Five Nights at Freddy's 3

  • 1

    Find Springtrap. The first thing to do when a night starts is to find Springtrap, who is usually in cam 10. Keep your camera on him. He may make the screen fuzzy, therefore allowing him to move. If he does this, find him. Only close the camera if there is an error.

  • 2

    Use the audio. Lure springtrap to a nearby camera using the audio button located on the bottom left of the camera layout, right above the vent camera toggle. Keep in mind you can't use it in the vents, instead, double click to seal a vent you see him at.

  • 3

    Don't look left unless necessary. There is no reason to look left unless there is an error, or you see the animation of Springtrap run by the window. If it is near the end of the night, you can stare at him if he is in the proximity of your room (AKA not in a camera but outside your office) hoping there is no ventilation error, and stare at him until it’s 6AM. It’s best to do this when you’re already at the end of the night.

  • 4

    Check those vents! If you hear a sound of something crawling in a vent (similar to the one in FNAF 2), click "Toggle Map" and check all of the vent cameras. Double click to seal a vent if he is in one, forcing him to take another way. There is really no point in sealing a vent that he’s not in, because it doesn't really help at all.

  • 5

    Avoid the phantoms in the cameras. Close the camera on a phantom if you see them, toggle map, or change camera number, failing to do so will result in a jump scare, triggering a ventilation/audio error. Also, if you stay on the camera for too long, you can trigger a camera error. You can avoid them though, and that is done by not using the cameras for too long.

  • 6

    Ignore Phantom Freddy. If you see PF walking outside your office window, just open your camera or maintenance panel. He can only jump scare you if you stare at him for too long, and wait for him to reach the end of the hall. After that, you’re free to pull down your maintenance panel/camera.

  • 7

    Play the audio! This is how you keep Springtrap from killing you. If you see him in a camera, play the audio in a corresponding camera that he went to before he entered the camera he is in now. So if he moved to camera 1, play the audio in camera 2, forcing him to go back. This only works on cameras next to the one he’s already in. Also, if he is outside your office window, playing the audio in the last camera will not make him go back to the camera. Instead, he will be in the left door next to the maintenance panel, which only means he got closer to you. After that point, do not open the camera or the maintenance panel because you will get jump scared right after.
