Scott Cawthon Offers Pro Tips in Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator Patch Notes

That fun-sized toy Funtime Freddy has an official name, too.

Freddy Fazbear’s Pizzeria Simulator has been out less than a week, but has already received its first patch update. Earlier today, Five Nights at Freddy’s creator and developer Scott Cawthon posted the patch notes for FNAF 6 update 1.021, which includes a list of recent changes as well as some “pro-tips” for players who are struggling with the game. 

You'll always be Funsized Freddy in our hearts.

The patch includes changes to Nights 1 and 2, as well as fixes for various salvaging issues. The main changes in update 1.021 are as follows: 

  • Nights 1 and 2 Made Easier: Animatronics now move slower on Nights 1 and 2 so that new players can have a better chance of surviving the first two nights even with just a few risk points.   
  • Salvage Section Fixed: Checking your page during the salvage section will always register now, even before the game prompts you to do so. Additionally, players will no longer be rewarded with cash for failed salvages. This was a bug. 
  • Green Man Hitbox Fix: In the Midnight Motorist secret lore mini-game, hit boxes have been adjusted so that players can now talk to the green man by the door more easily. 
  • Balloon Cart Changes: According to the patch notes, the ballon cart “is less useless, but only slightly.” 

Cawthon’s Pro-Tips

In addition to game changes, the FNAF 6 patch notes include several pro-tips for playing Freddy Fazbear’s Pizzeria Simulator, straight from the creator himself.

Cawthon mentions that FNAF 6 can’t be played like the previous FNAF games, particularly ones that required a more frantic strategy like FNAF 2. Freddy Fazbear’s Pizzeria Simulator requires “silence and patience”, so looking back and forth frantically between the air vents won’t help you in this game.

Cawthon also mentioned the importance of working without the fan, as well as using the sound decoy and motion tracker, which we have also suggested in our guide for how to survive each night in FNAF 6.

Arguably the most important thing to take away from these patch notes is the fact that the miniature toy Funtime Freddy found throughout the game is actually named Helpy. Although fans were rooting for Funsize Freddy, Helpy will have to suffice.
