Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach – Low End Laptop / Computer Optimization

This is a guide on how to optimize your game to run on a low end computer.

In Game Optimisation

First of all, the simple in-game optimization.

  1. Open your menu by pressing escape or your set key-bind, go to options and set the “Visual quality” to “Lowest”
  2. I have discovered that raising your “Gamma” just very slightly boosts performance, don’t know how though.

These may affect the looks of the game, but at least now you can run it without having -7 fps.

Steam Optimisation

Next, we have the Steam optimisation. Which currently has two ways of doing so:

1) Single Core:

Right click on the Steam Icon/Shortcut on your desktop. Then click on the “Properties” option. Once there, open “Task Manager” and end all tasks related to Steam. Open the “Shortcut” section and find the string underneath the word “Target”. At the end of this line, add the string ” -single_core” with a space at the start. Then re-open steam and you should have no errors.


This forces steam to use your main CPU instead of the GPU, giving you a smoother experience, but putting more stress on the CPU. I recommend always looking at the CPU usage and Temperature using an app called “HWINFO”.

2) Giving Security breach high priority:

Open up steam and Right click on Security breach. Find the option called “Properties” and click on it.Go to the section named “General” and find the “LAUNCH OPTIONS” bar. Within that bar, add the string “-high” and close the steam popup.


This one is simple, it gives Security breach high priority on your CPU, making other programs have less percentage, and Security Breach having way more. This can slow down other programs like discord and more so be mindful of that.

  1. Oh hey! I didn’t know this existed but I’m glad to see my research was of some use. Glad to see that most of the performance issues ended up being fixed as well lmao.

  2. I’m on a 1050 gtx and it shouldn’t be laggy even on low graphical settings. They need to fix this game big time.

  3. ThatLazyBucket its a huge mall with tons of rooms to explore they cant really lower the game even more…trust me im a game dev they cant reallly fix that stuff
