EMail-icon.png

E-Mail is a method of exchanging messages between people using electronic devices for Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery. It tutorials the player and notifies them with certain messages.

However, there are also some E-Mails that are not supposed to be sent to the player. These are hints for the lore of the Five Nights at Freddy's series.

Gameplay

While it recommends the player on what to purchase for gameplay purpose, it functions as a tutorial for the player, by telling them in the following:

  • Look away when in Haywire Mode.
  • Shake the phone when statics fill the screen.
  • Describing the salvaging's functions.

Also notifies the player when their:

  • Friend has sent an animatronic to their house.
  • Animatronic has finish salvaging.

There are some E-Mails that are not meant to be sent for the player due to technical issues, according to the message by Fazbear Entertainment. These are filtered in-game under the Story folder.

Red Flag Reports

NOVEMBER 28, 2019
Hey, Ness,
I hope you're having a good day! It's no big deal, but I wanted to reach out 'off the radar,' and remind you about the company policy about personal internet usage. Nobody cares if you're online shopping, as long as you get your work done - I promise, I've done my share of last-minute gift-buying! But certain words and phrases trigger red flag reports, so your last order got automatically sent to me: basically anything mentioning 'torture' is going to raise the alarm. So although the Viking Blood Eagle Twelve-Month Calendar you ordered is very cool, the searches that got you there did trigger a red flag.
If you have any questions about the policy, let me know. We could even get coffee or something and go over all the words to avoid.
...And now I've raised my own red flag! Good thing I'm the one who gets the notification :-)
-Luis
DECEMBER 2, 2019
Hey, Ness,
Just a quick FYI - I know I mentioned trigger words, but the AI is actually a little more sophisticated than that, and of course there are people like me watching the system, too.
So, the word compliance by itself isn't going to set off any red flags, but the sentence how to induce compliance in human subjects, and how to induce self-compliance(?) did actually get my attention. (I think the answer might involve chocolate chip cookies? Always works on me.)
I also thought it was strange that these were immediately followed by searches that couldn't possibly have any relevant answers for you. Did you search for 'help' by itself?
Anyway, my offer still stands if you want to go over the company policy. I'm free any day after work - we could grab dinner or coffee if you want. In meantime you might want to do some of your more... interesting research at home.

Raha Salib: Seriously. We don't have room for them, I don't know why Anna agreed to take this job.
Mark Cho: $$$$$
Raha Salib: More like $
Mark Cho: lol

Can I use power tools?

NOVEMBER 29, 2019
Hey, Anna,
The casings on the animatronics are really hard to get off. Can you approve me to use the power drill?
Best,
Dan

Anna Kwemto: No.
Daniel Rocha: Please? I'm serious, I can't get the casing off without it.
Anna Kwemto: Raha is only one certified. Quit asking.

Come drill for me?

NOVEMBER 29, 2019
Daniel Rocha
Need to get circuit boards out. Anna says you're the only one who can use power drill.

Raha Salib: 15 min.

system glitch

NOVEMBER 30, 2019
Steven Wilson
Hey, guys, I just got kicked off the system. I finished scanning the last set of circuit boards Dan brought me, but now I'm locked out. Is anyone else getting this 'unknown error'?
~
Anna Kwemto: No.
DECEMBER 3, 2019
Raha Salib: Steve, which circuit board did you scan?
~
Steven Wilson: Whatever Dan brought me

IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED

DECEMBER 1, 2019
Fazbear Entertainment Office of Legal Affairs
Dear Ms. Kwemto,
Please immediately cease all work on Fazbear Entertainment properties. Due to unforeseen circumstances, Fazbear Entertainment is ordering a halt to work on all existing contracts, especially in reference to any vintage hardware. We will be in touch regarding our future course of action; please contact our billings department regarding payment for completed work to-date action.
Sincerely,
Kaula Stringer
Associate General Counsel
Fazbear Entertainment

Anna Kwemto: Fazbear just ordered us to stop working. It sounds like they're halting work with all their contractors, not just us. They said they'll be in touch about 'our future course of action.'
Steven Wilson: Anna, are we still getting paid for this?
Anna Kwemto: For work to-date only. Make sure you have everything logged.

It'll be ok. We have other contracts.

Raha Salib: Yeah, but this was a big job.
Mark Cho: :-(

DECEMBER 4, 2019
Hey, Ness
I wanted to see if you're doing ok. I appreciate you're taking my advice about red flag search terms, if I thought I'd have to file an incident report on you, I think I'd just have to quit instead. So, my student loans thank you!
I do have to keep checking online activity periodically after getting a red flag report, and I was a little worried maybe something is going on with you? One day you're researching flowers and the migration patterns of bees (fascinating, right?) and the next day you type in 'How far can a human being be cut in half before losing consciousness'.
I figured, maybe you're writing a screenplay or something? But it was a little startling to see it written out. I hope you know I'm always here if you need me.

virus detected

DECEMBER 5, 2019
Daniel Rocha
Turns out that wasn't just a glitch, we released a virus when we scanned that last circuit board. It's spreading really fast, we're going to need all hands on deck.

(no subject)

DECEMBER 6, 2019
Hey, Ness,
I hope things are good! I saw you ordered three 'lifelike, human male rubber masks' and I was dying to ask what they're for - was my screenplay guess right? Are you making a movie, or putting together some kind of performance?
Everything's the same as usual with me - but I guess you know that, you see me every day at work! Maybe one day soon we can get that coffee.

URGENT: Virus caused by FE circuit board upload

DECEMBER 7, 2019
Hey, Jim,
We have a virus spreading through our system, and we've traced it back to one of the circuit board scans we performed for Fazbear Entertainment. Are you aware of this issue? Can you send any guidance?
Best,
Steve

DECEMBER 8, 2019
Hey, Ness,
It was really great talking to you today. I think that might be the first time we've actually had an in-person conversation lol. It's weird, I feel like I know you so well, but I guess you don't know so much about me. We're just going to fix that!
I had no idea you were into IT stuff. I always think my job sounds so boring, but you were so interested it made me start thinking, hey, maybe IT is cool after all. Or maybe you're just a good listener. Anyway, it was nice to have some in-person time. Maybe we can do it again soon. I still owe you that coffee I keep saying we should get.

DECEMBER 9, 2019
Hey, Ness,
Is everything OK? I came by your desk to say hi today and I don't think you even heard me. You had your face so close to the screen, that can't be good for your eyes (I know, I know, I sound like somebody's grandma). I waited for a second to see if you would turn around, but it was like you were in another world. It must be useful to be able to shout out the world and focus like that, I wish I could do it. I thought you were on a conference call at first because I heard voices.
Ness, if you ever want to talk about anything, I'm always here for you. I thought your hair looked nice today, the rainbow streaks brightened up the office - and the office is always in desperate need of some brightening!
-Luis

URGENT: virus

DECEMBER 10, 2019
To: James Campbell, Anna Kwemto
From: Steven Wilson
Just checking in. I emailed you earlier this week about a virus caused by one of your circuit boards, which is currently spreading throughout our system and causing serious problems. Please contact me ASAP. Thanks.
Best,
Steve

Might need more time

DECEMBER 17, 2019
To: Compliance Team
From: Nora (R&D)
Okay, we got the new one up and running, like you guys wanted. Gotta say, though...the facial recognition upgrades aren't taking the exact effect we expected. We've got our best looking at it, now.
I would suggest getting an extension, if possible. Would hate for these to go out before they're ready.
Thanks, Nora
P.S. Still waiting to hear back about the other ones. Did anyone even see that request?
~
To: Nora (R&D)
From: Tristan (Compliance Team)
That's a no-go on an extension. You mentioned the other day in the sync meeting that your guys found a work-around, right?
Just go with that and hit the original dates.
Tristan
Oh and I saw the earlier request, nothing I can say about them yet. (You know how it is...

Are we doing this again?

APRIL 8, 2020
From: Nora (R&D)
To: Charles (QA)
I'm heading this off at the pass before you get any ideas.
R & D HAS NOT TOUCHED THE ANIMATRONICS.
You have any other questions, go send them to Tristan. I'm sure he'd love to hear from you.

Gameplay Tips

E-mails sent from Fazbear Entertainment giving customers information on the animatronics.

Troubleshooting Guide: Freddy Fazbear Mask

Dear <username>,
We hope you're continuing to enjoy the exhilarating experience of our Eternal Package!
We're reaching out because in-user testing our brand new animatronic we found that some customers weren't using the fresh, fun and friendly Freddy Fazbear Mask we've provided. Our hope is that the following Q and A can help you experience the highest levels of fun our new product can offer.
Q: "Toy" animatronic behaves erratically and shows subsequent aggressive - but perfectly harmless, tendencies.
A: Our brand new "Toy" animatronics have been given an upgraded facial recognition suite. Due to the rigorous new software, customers should attempt to use the new Freddy Fazbear Mask in the very rare case that the facial recognition software encounters a fatal logic loop.

Troubleshooting Guide: Toy Bonnie Errata

Dear <username>,
We hope you're continuing to enjoy the exhilarating experience of our Eternal Package!
Q: "Toy" animatronic behaves erratically and shows subsequent aggressive - but perfectly harmless, tendencies.
A: Our brand new "Toy" animatronics have been given an upgraded facial recognition suite. Due to the rigorous new software, customers should attempt to use the new Freddy Fazbear Mask in the very rare case that the facial recognition software encounters a fatal logic loop.
A small number of users are reporting a minor bug unique to the new "Toy Bonnie" model animatronic where despite wearing the new Freddy Fazbear Mask the animatronic continues to be aggressive. Fortunately, this issue is easily circumvented by the simple expedient of watching for chromatic variation in the animatronic's eyes and then, with the mask still on, looking away.

Troubleshooting Guide: Errata for the Mangle

Dear <username>,
As a callback to the classics, for a limited time only we are adding to the Eternal Package a recreation of the vintage "Mangle" animatronic!
Q: "The Mangle" is dropping pieces of itself onto the floor.
A: This is actually a feature! The classic Mangle animatronic from the original restaurants became popular as a "take-apart-and-put-back-together" attraction, and we've worked hard to bring that original experience back to you, our valued customers!
Q: Okay, I've picked up the pieces, but now the animatronic is making funny noises at me. What should I do?
A: In certain very rare instances, losing pieces has been known to destabilize the animatronic's socialization algorithms. If this happens to you, we recommend you collect the pieces quickly as possible until the animatronic deactivates.
Q: Does "The Mangle" possess the same upgraded facial recognition software as the Toy-series of animatronics?
A: Yes! And we're so glad you noticed! In the extraordinarily unlikely instance of a fatal logic loop causing the animatronic to charge you, putting on the Freddy Fazbear Mask included in your Eternal Package Kit will cause the animatronic to abort any such anti-social behavior.
Q: "The Mangle" animatronic behaves erratically and shows subsequent aggressive - but perfectly harmless, tendencies.
A: If the upgraded facial recognition suite conflicts with our new upgraded software in this way without charging, customers should attempt to put on the new Freddy Fazbear Mask and, importantly, look away to reset the animatronic's logic algorithm.

A Special Dancing Friend is Here

Greetings, <username>!
We sent our brand new friend to meet you! She twirls with grace and ease and wants to dance with you!
Her name is Ballora, and she'll keep you on your toes.
She loves dancing to music; make sure you don't make any noise to distract her.
And make sure she doesn't trip on over the Minireenas lying around!

Toy Bonnie

Still can't reproduce the issue
JANUARY 16, 2020
To: Nora (R&D)
From: Charles (QA)
We've tried everything we can think of here to reproduce the issue you were seeing with the new Toy model, but can't seem to get it to happen here.
Are you sure about the eyes changing color before the behavioral matrix went haywire?
CD
~
To: Charles (QA)
From: Nora (R&D)
It was only the once, and only one of the guys reported it. I've caught him sleeping on the job twice this week, too, so he's probably just imagining things.
Honestly, what's the worst that could happen?
Just note it in the log as "Cannot Reproduce" and move on to the rest, or we're never going to meet the new deadline.

Toy Freddy

Not cool
JANUARY 31, 2020
To: Nora (R&D)
From: Tristan (Compliance Team)
Nora,
I heard about you trying to go over my head to my boss about the Toy Freddy issue. While I appreciate you are trying to do what you feel is your job, defining compliance and safety standards is my department, not yours.
Our product analysts have determined that the Toy Freddy issue is negligible. We'll just slap a note at the bottom of the outgoing customer outreach mails - it's not like any of the users even read those, and we'll be covered legally,
Tristan
P.S. Next time you feel like going over my head, come talk to me, or you'll force me to being this up with Human Resources. Sorry to be the bad guy about this, but you're really not leaving me with any other choice.
FEBRUARY 4, 2020
To: Tristan (Compliance Team)
From: Nora (R&D)
Fine. But I want it noted in writing what my department reported.
Toy Freddy is not safe to go out to the public. The interference happening with the upgraded facial recognition suite risks rendering all the safety functions on the users' handsets useless.

New Multarticulus Model Delays

MARCH 3, 2020
From: Tristan (Compliance Team)
To: Nora (R&D)
Nora,
I've been looking over those reports on the motility tests for the new model and I gotta say I'm a little disturbed by the lack of progress. The original was purportedly able to move along the ceiling, and from what I'm seeing here, we're having issues getting our rebuilds to even move on level ground properly.
What kind of shop are you guys running down there? The marketing guys are lighting fires under me to promise we'll hit the launch date for this, and what I'm seeing is not filling me with confidence.
Tristan
MARCH 4, 2020
From: Nora (R&D)
To: Tristan (Compliance Team)
First, tell the marketing people to go jump off a bridge. They just have to write some fancy copy while we're done here trying to make their crazy promises work in reality on unrealistic budgets and completely insane timelines. We're doing the best we can.
Second, there's a huge difference between a new model based on the same bipedal chassis and one based on a...whatever you want to call this thing? A quadreped? A spider? A tripod? The locomotion is completely different, which means the power needs are different, the hydraulic calibrations have to be completely redone, and the CPU has to be switched out for a newer one with a faster baud rate. And then on top of all that, we have to put together this "Controlled Disassembly" feature? The marketing people are crazy.
Third, GET OFF MY BACK!!! I warned management that reproducing the more exotic endoskeletons would be a problem, and they decided to go ahead and put them on the schedule anyways. They're just going to have to live with the limitations of, you know, basic physics.
Nora

Shamrock Freddy

Circuit board changes?

MARCH 12, 2020

From: Charles (QA)
To: Tristan (Compliance Team)
Hey Tristan, Sorry to bother you, but wanted to confirm that there were no changes on the circuit board side of things?
The documentation says it's just external changes to the plush suit, but some of the testers here are swearing the behavioral matrix is kinda, well, aggressive.
CD
From: Tristan (Compliance Team)
To: Charles (QA)
The documentation is accurate, The only adjustments are external alterations to the plush suit - R&D hasn't even touched the holiday release.
What do your people think, a computer controlled animatronic can somehow get into the holiday spirit and reprogram itself? It's just a machine controlled by a circuit board. It has to do what we tell it to and nothing more.
Tristan
