Along with new animatronics comes new bots, with STAFF bots found through Pizzaplex. One of these is Map Bot, designed to hand out cards to lost patrons.

Bro, I seriously feel just asleep after playing a ton of FNAF Security Breach on stream. Had a nightmare that made me jump physically.
Who was in it?
Montgomery? Freddy? Chica?
No. Short Bot and the White Girl.

That Five Nights at Freddy’s games are well known for their jumpscares, which continue to make them a popular choice for content creators to stream and respond to. While FNAF: Security breach change FNAF formula in its gameplay, style and features, Steel Wools’ decision to include some jumpscares helps keep the title true to the franchise without getting too repetitive. Throughout the game, the only STAFF bots that can scare a player, Security, Alpha Staff and Map Bots, with Security breach generally aiming for more survival-horror-gameplay than scare tactics.
The popularity of Map Bot and its accompanying jumpscares across social media has helped raise awareness of the new FNAF games that are currently only available on PS5 and PC. Although it is not currently confirmed whether the game will come to other platforms in the future, it is very possible that the new FNAF could be launched on Switch and Xbox next year. Until then, social media clips, livestreams and Let’s Plays demonstrate all that, as with before FNAF game, FNAF: Security breach continues the franchise tradition of offering top-tier jumpscares to its players.
