Fnatic Mode Easter egg unlocks hidden wallpapers on OnePlus phones

OnePlus launched its latest premium flagship, the OnePlus 7 Pro in May 2019. As is with OnePlus flagships, the phone comes with a lot of top-of-the-line specifications that also make it a very good smartphone for gaming in general, as we found out in our gaming review. In addition to good hardware, OnePlus has also added in software features and optimizations that aid gamers in extracting the best performance possible out of their smartphone. For instance, the bundled Gaming Mode lets users block notifications, disable auto-brightness, provide display enhancement and better haptic feedback and more. If you want to take it up a notch, OnePlus also collaborated with Fnatic, a professional eSports organization, to provide for a Fnatic Mode on their flagship.


Fnatic Mode is a setting within the Gaming Mode and is meant to “supercharge your gaming experience”. Essentially, this mode allows the phone to absolutely focus all resources towards the game by blocking out more notifications, disabling the second SIM card and even aggressively managing and closing down background apps. Of course, this feature is an opt-in feature and can be enabled on a per-app basis, so you can enable these restrictions for your games only. Fnatic Mode has gone on from being a OnePlus 7 Pro-exclusive at launch to becoming available on the OnePlus 7, the OnePlus 6T and OnePlus 6 and the OnePlus 5T and the OnePlus 5.

At the OnePlus 7 Pro launch event, OnePlus did mention that there was an easter egg within the Fnatic Mode. If you’re looking to unlock this easter egg, and have already explored all possible solutions, you can unlock the easter egg by following the steps below:

Fnatic Mode Easter Egg

To unlock the Easter Egg:

  • Navigate to Settings > Utilities > Gaming Mode > Fnatic Mode.
  • Tap on the Fnatic logo five times.
  • A text box would appear underneath the logo.
  • Enter alwaysfnatic in the text field and hit enter.

Executing the above steps would unlock three new Fnatic-themed wallpapers. You can unlock the same on all the above-mentioned devices on the updates that come with the Fnatic Mode feature.

If you would like to use the three Fnatic wallpapers on other devices, you can simply download the full-size wallpapers from the OnePlus 7 Pro from our previous coverage,  and extract the files from the zip.
