FNaF World, the strange RPG set in the Five Nights at Freddy’s universe, has just been pulled from wild release on Steam. But, if you’re lucky enough to already have a copy or if you’re willing to wait a few more weeks for the totally free release, we’ve got a few strategies to make leveling up weak party members easy.
Instead of continuing the horror route, FNaF creator Scott Cawthon took a weird right turn and developed this happy-go-lucky JRPG. Everything is not as it seems, and you’re going to need high level heroes to survive this game’s toughest secret bosses. There are a surprising number of available party members, so keeping them all leveled up isn’t that easy. We’ll help you out with a few tips to speed up the process.
How to Easily Grind for XP
Grinding is possible on all bosses thanks to a quirk of the game engine. All bosses will respawn if you reload a save near their spawn location. This allows you to defeat a boss, press ‘Save’, exit the game, then restart the game, reload, and fight the boss all over again.
Remember, follow this order of steps to quickly farm:
- 1. Approach a boss battle on the world map.
- 2. Save your game. Press ‘Save’ in the lower-right corner.
- 3. Defeat the boss battle.
- 4. Save again, somewhere near the previous boss’ spawn location.
- 5. Exit out of the game with ‘Esc’ — completely restart the game.
- 6. Load your save file and the boss will be back. Rinse & Repeat.
Here are some of the better bosses to use for quick XP grindings.
XP Grinding Method #1: Auto Chipper
Auto Chipper rewards 500 XP on each kill. This method is good for lower level characters; levels 6-8 will get the most out of this boss fight.
XP Grinding Method #2: Bouncer
Bouncer rewards 1,000 XP on each kill. Still a mid-level boss, found in the Dusting Fields area.
XP Grinding Method #3: Browboy
Browboy rewards 1,250 XP on each kill. If you’re preparing for the final boss, Browboy is your best bet.
Negatives & Drawbacks
This is an intentional system, so there are certain drawbacks for re-fighting defeated bosses.
Each time you defeat a boss, the fight will become much more difficult on subsequent battles. They do more damage, so bring healers or characters with high defense.
It’s recommended you only fight bosses 3-4 times each. If one boss becomes too hard, try fighting a lower level boss fight again to get their XP.
