My Friendly Neighborhood Part 1: Stage 4 Guide

This guide goes through the steps on how to complete Stage 4 in My Friendly Neighborhood.

My Friendly Neighborhood Part 1 Stage 4 cover

My Friendly Neighborhood is the newest survival horror game that follows the story of a handyman named Gordon who was sent to disable the antenna of a shut-down studio after it mysteriously started broadcasting again. Gordon will have to navigate his way through the different buildings to reach the antenna and complete his job, but the resident puppets who have magically sprung back to life won’t make it easy for him.

Read ahead as we go through the steps on how to complete Part 1: Stage 4 of My Friendly Neighborhood and share the locations of the collectibles that can be found in this segment.

As you start the game, you’re shown with a cutscene of a television showing different channels, presumably inside our protagonist’s home. All of a sudden, one channel’s broadcasting is getting some interference and is showing what appears to be a children’s show before the scene switches to the game’s title card.

You are then able to pick the game’s difficulty that you want to play; only two are available while the others are unlocked after succeeding playthroughs.

The scene then switches through the eyes of our protagonist, Gordon O’Brien, who is a repairman as he looks at his work order for his final job of the day. In here, we learn that he has to disable the broadcast array of the vacant studio that has been causing the interference we saw from earlier, otherwise Gordon will get fired.

Basics of the game

My Friendly Neighborhood will have you go through the ordeal of completing your job while trying to survive getting killed by animatronics that have come back to life.

You don’t have the usual health bar, but rather a health status that goes from Healthy > Caution > Danger. Each damage that you sustain will drop your status down to Danger and afterwards you will get killed and start from the last savepoint. There are potions that you can get in the game to restore your health.

As for the weapons, you will start off with nothing, so it is important to get to the first melee weapon at the start of the game to be able to actually confront the enemies and subdue them. You will eventually get access to some ranged weapons that will give you a better advantage. Tapes can be found in certain places which are consumables that you can use on downed enemies to tie them up.

There are also collectibles in the game that will unlock achievements and secrets. You can pick up tokens which serve as currency to get consumables or activate save points. Since you can only activate a save point if you have enough tokens, your opportunities to create saves within a playthrough are limited and you will have to be strategic about it.

Basics of the game - My Friendly Neighborhood Part 1: Stage 4 Guide

You will have an inventory system similar to the Resident Evil games where you will have to manually manage and arrange the items to make space or simply just to organize everything inside. Toolboxes will also be available in certain areas of the game where you can deposit your items for safekeeping.

She does it in some areas like in the back of the Alley, but the easiest place to do it is by her make-up station at the back of ABC Building. Once you approach her head, you can then place the glasses and then a cutscene will play. Pearl will no longer run around the set and you will unlock the Looking in the Mirror Achievement.
