Five Nights at Freddy’s Security Breach: How to Quickly Defeat Montgomery Gator

Montgomery Gator, one of Freddy Fazbear’s animatronic companions, can be a real pain during your playthrough of Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach. From shining a spotlight in the main atrium to yelling at you with his scruffy voice, Gator is no bigger an issue than when engaging in what amounts to a boss “fight” in Security Breach.

Below, you will find your guide on how to quickly beat Gator while mitigating your chances of hitting the game over screen. Remember that you will not directly attack him, so keep your distance as always.

The preamble to the “fight” with Montgomery Gator

As you exit the vent from Mazercise, first be sure to save your game at the spot to the left on the wall. Then, turn to the launcher and hit both targets in the distance once – they’ll flash when struck. Aim a little higher than the target to cover the distance and height of the targets.

From there, the gate will open as rides make their way to the gate. Jump down and get ready to run. As you hit the ground, a cut scene will occur where Gator will ride on the side of one these rides and jump down, taking out a ball launcher after he lands.

Turn and run!

You have a very narrow area to run and escape Gator. Quickly run away from Gator and hit the first right, then the next left, then the next right, then left again and run all the way until you see a launcher. Here, hit the target at the front of the area once and run, keeping an eye out for Gator.

Your goal is to hit the target enough times to fill the bucket. While in many cases it pours water, in the game it will pour out a bunch of balls for a ball pit.

Run around to different launchers and hit the target once, moving on again so you don’t stay in one place too long. Some launchers have tricky angles, but the ones with better sights are in the middle areas that Gator usually patrols.

What makes this task more difficult is that Gator will prowl areas per usual, but he will also jump between areas. He can catch you by surprise doing this, so try to keep an eye on him at all times.

See ya, Montgomery Gator!

Once you are notified that the task is done, run to the front of the area. As you approach to hit the switch, another cut scene will occur. Gator will appear at the end of the path opposite yourself, and you will automatically hit the switch.

The bucket of balls that was filled from you hitting the targets with the launchers will then topple, pouring out balls onto Gator. As it falls, he tries to hold it up in a futile effort that eventually causes the pathway to crumple and crash. Gator is destroyed as he hits a support bar, tearing him apart before he splashes into more pieces on the ground.

Montgomery Gator’s demise.

As you land safely (somehow) alongside Gator’s mangled body, your task is not quite done. Remember when you told Fazbear of the upgrades for the other three animatronics and how they could use that to improve Fazbear after reattaching his head? Well, here’s a chance to begin that process.

Look behind Gator. You will see his dismembered arms lying there. Pick them up to collect his claws. Not only have you now defeated one of your tormentors, but you’ve also found a way to use their strengths to better your buddy Freddy Fazbear!

Remember, always be aware of Montgomery Gator’s position so you don’t end up running right into him. While you can try hitting a target multiple times with one launcher, it gives Gator more time to find you. The hit-and-tactic will be the key to easily defeating Gator and proceeding with the story.
