- This article is about the location labelled as CAM 4. See CAMs (disambiguation) for more specific locations.
The East Hall is a location in Five Nights at Freddy's within Freddy Fazbear's Pizza. It is viewed with CAM 4A and CAM 4B. Chica often stalks these halls as she approaches the player's position. Freddy Fazbear will show up here on later nights as well.
The poster listing the rules of the restaurant, which can be seen on CAM 4B, occasionally changes into newspaper clippings about The Missing Children Incident that occurred at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza.
Chica commonly comes through this area. Activating the Hall Light when she is in the player's blind spot will show Chica standing behind the window. She can be seen standing at the end of the hall, although she will occasionally move closer up, mouth agape. She will also appear at the corner right next to The Office.
Once Freddy becomes active, he may also enter the hall. He can also appear in the corner, looking directly into the camera. If this happens, he is one step away from attacking, as he skips the Hall Light blind spot and moves directly into The Office. Viewing Freddy on the East Hall Corner camera will prevent him from moving. Changing to another camera will allow him to enter the office, thus killing the player. It is best to close the right door when trying to view another camera. Not having the monitor up at all also prevents Freddy from entering the office.
It is interesting to note that on Night 4 and beyond (as well as on the Custom Night), when Chica is occupying the corner, her head will twitch and snap, and a sound byte also used in the Visual Hallucinations will accompany her. The same applies for Bonnie in the West Hall Corner. This can be beneficial to the player since the sound byte will emit without having to view her on the Monitor, or even if they don't have the Monitor up at all, for that matter, similarly to when she is in the Kitchen. If the sound byte plays alone, without any Hallucinations accompanying it, the player automatically knows that either she and/or Bonnie are in their corners, eliminating the need to check them. The player will need to check them in the mobile version since this audio file is not present.
The East Hall is a dark hallway, barely illuminated by a single light, with the floor almost entirely hidden from the player's view. Star decorations and wires hang from the ceiling. On the wall are three cheerful posters of the animatronic characters.
On the far left is Chica, which has the text "EATING TIME!" in large letters above her head. The center poster depicts Freddy, with the text "FUN TIME!" in large letters under his head. The third depicts a rather droopy-eyed Bonnie with the text "PARTY TIME!" in large letters above his head. Cobwebs can also be seen in the foreground.
In the end corner, the floor is shown and is the same bluish and black tile as the corresponding room in the West Hall and in the Dining Area. On the floor, papers lay scattered about. On the walls, papers with writing on them, as well as a poster outlining the rules of the establishment, are hung. There is also a black and white checkered stripe with a red outline on the wall, and the rest of the wall is a grayish color.
- The posters on the wall on CAM 4A can, as long as no other animatronic is there, be one of three things: the normal posters, crude drawings of crying children's faces, or graffiti reading, "IT'S ME." It is unknown why or when this happens.
- The drawings of crying children's faces look very similar to the children's sprites in the Death Minigames in Five Nights at Freddy's 2.
- The list of rules on the Rules For Safety poster are:
- Don't run.
- Don't yell.
- Don't scream.
- Don't poop on floor.
- Stay close to Mom.
- Don't touch Freddy.
- Don't hit.
- Leave before dark.
- The "Leave before dark" rule most likely refers to the animatronics' behavior of becoming active and homicidal after hours.
- The "Don't touch Freddy" rule most likely refers to the hand prints of Freddy's face and jaw.
- Sometimes the rules poster will change to a newspaper clipping, telling of the The Missing Children Incident, stating certain elements from the backstory of the game.
- Freddy's normal eyes are not visible in other cameras. However, in the East Hall, they are strangely visible. This may be because of the lighting.
- CAM 4A was originally called the Backstage according to the beta gameplay by Scott Cawthon.
- Strangely, if one looks closely enough, they can see that the wires in the bottom-left corner of the East Hall Corner reflect Freddy and Chica's body when they are staring into the camera.
- The "Don't touch Freddy" rule could possibly indicate that Freddy caused The Bite of '87, though with the release of Five Nights at Freddy's 2, this seems highly unlikely, and it may simply be a general rule.
- CAM 05 from Five Nights at Freddy's 3 bears a resemblance to the East Hall, some similarities being the positioning and angle of the camera, the near-identical design of the floor and walls, the posters of the animatronics (albeit on different sides), and the single light fixture on the ceiling.
- Even Springtrap's position far off in the hallway bears slight similarities to Chica and Freddy's stances.
- In the newspaper article about two kids vanishing, the word "surveillance" is misspelled as "surveliance".
- In the newspaper article about the pizzeria shutting down, there is no space between the comma after "ago" and before "Freddy".
