How to Rob a Train in BitLife

The only pre-requisite to robbing a train in BitLife is to be aged at least 18 in the game. Apart fro that it's just a matter of selecting the right options and realising that the time of the train equates to the actual time in real life and there is no way around that! It's all explained below, what you need to do and what you should not do to make this activity a success.

  • Your Character Must be 18 or Over
  • Head to Activities > Crime > Train Robbery
  • Pick a Train from the list
  • When the time on your device matches the train time, select 'Rob It'

In principal this should be all you need to do to rob a train in BitLife. But sometimes it doesn't work out, here are some of the problems that you may encounter when trying to rob a train in BitLife.

The Train Ran Me Over!

This happens... Maybe your timing was not right, this is a high risk activity and sometimes your Bitizen will die when trying to rob a train especially if you are too early too late. You really need to be hitting the train at the exact minute of the train that you selected, matching it to the time on your device. Do not change your time to make things speed up, it won't work, and the consequences could be the death of your Bitizen.

I Changed my Time to Speed Things Up... And this happened!

I imagine it did! The game can detect time changes on your device and the train robbery will most definitely fail if you try to do this. So pick a train time that is close to the real time in your life, or set an alarm to alert you a few minutes before. All trains are equal so it doesn't matter which one you try to rob, choose the time that is most convenient for you.
