"Need to get power to this gate somehow. There should be a couple switches nearby, then maybe I can open it."
Henry's line about the toggle - switches, Bendy and the Ink Machine: Chapter 2

Switches are electrical and mechanical operators in the Bendy series.


In Bendy and the Ink Machine, there are four main types of switches from throughout the chapters:

  • Lever - Used for activating power within the studio, such as for the Ink Machine and electricity.
  • Valve - Valves are located commonly around pipes, used for draining or filling ink. They are operated by turning valve wheels.
  • Toggle switch - Only seen in Chapter 2, several toggle switches are used for powering the lever up for opening the entrance to the Music Department.
  • Handle Switch - Used for certain locations such as the exit door of the safehouse and for moving the shelves of the toy machine room.


Bendy and the Ink Machine

Chapter 1: Moving Pictures

One handle switch powered by two dry cells is used in the Ink Machine loading dock to raise the Ink Machine.

There is only one lever located at the end of the break room. Henry can only pull the lever to activate the Ink Machine's room after collecting and putting all six items on the pedestals and turning the pressure valve on from the projector room, which requires Henry to turn the valve to proceed.

After Henry falls into the basement, there are 3 valves that he has to turn to drain the ink flood before going into the next room.

Chapter 2: The Old Song

There are three toggle switches found around the areas of the utility shaft 9 room. Before pulling the lever to open the Music Department hall's entrance, find all three toggle switches and open the lid before activating each switch.

A lever present in the stairwell is used to power the music department.

Into the infirmary, there's one handle switch that opens the door that takes to the boiler room.

The other two handle switches are used to raise and lower the case to kill Swollen Jack.

After turning the two valves, Henry can access to the office of Sammy Lawrence and pull the pump switch to drain the ink into the stairwell

Chapter 3: Rise and Fall

From the safehouse, there is an exit door that can only be opened with the handle switch, but the missing lever is only found inside the toolbox.

There is a lever to power on the toy machine from within the room. Inside the said room is a handle switch, used for moving the toy shelves upon activating it.

Behind the planks, there is a small room with three levers and a "PLEASE PULL LEVER" sign above, at first only the first left switch can be pulled. Pulling the switch will start the challenge, and multiple Searchers will appear around Heavenly Toys room. After defeating them all, the second lever will become usable. The second lever will cause multiple clones of Piper, Fisher, and Striker to appear around Heavenly Toys room. Killing them all will make the 3rd and final lever usable. Pulling the third lever will summon the Searcher Boss in the Heavenly Toys room.

Chapter 4: Colossal Wonders

Into the pillar room, one lever and one valve are used to spawn a swollen searcher to obtain the thick ink.

A lever in the planning room is used to open the door of the storage 9.

Into storage 9 over four handle switches must be pulled to power up the Haunted House for the ride.

Another two switches are present into the areas connected to storage 9: the lever in the research and design area is used to open the door and the lift control into the maintenance area.

Chapter 5: The Last Reel

The switches are needed to release the boat from the barge and to open the gate that takes to the Administration of the lobby. Furthermore, levers are used to pass the first battle phase of Beast Bendy's fight.

Bendy and the Dark Revival

The switches will appear in Bendy and the Dark Revival. Revealed in the gameplay trailer, there is a lock panel that can be powered by the electric baton to automatically unlock the door before gaining access to the next area.


  • The older model of the toggle-switch, originally a button.

    In Bendy and the Ink Machine, from the older updates prior to the release of Chapter 4: Colossal Wonders, the toggle-switches are entirely different in shape, resembling buttons. They also can be found randomly.
