What is a BitLife bank robbery?

As the name suggests, the BitLife bank robbery is rather straightforward. It involves your BitLife character attempting to steal from a bank, hoping to make off with a healthy dose of money. Of course, BitLife is a rather detached simulator, so you don't actually control the robbery itself. Instead, you set up the circumstances around this daring heist, trying to best prepare for any scenario.

Yes, the risks and rewards can both be quite substantial, as something as blasé as robbing a bank at gunpoint won't go unnoticed. Therefore, it's important to plan the approach that you think will garner success, as any wrong moves can seriously derail your BitLife character's future.

How do I carry out a BitLife bank robbery?

Luckily, planning and executing a BitLife bank robbery is a very easy process. However, your character will have to meet a few criteria first. Namely, they've got to be older than 18, as that's the age where most criminal activities are unlocked.

  • Go to Activities > Crime > Bank Robbery.
  • Next, you'll need to pick a set of criteria when setting up your heist. This includes the bank you're going to rob, your weapon, disguise, and getaway vehicle.
    • We recommend selecting the most sensible options for each section.
  • With your setup ready, it's time to commit the robbery. Depending on its success or failure, you'll find out what your future now holds: be it a bevvy of ill-gotten money, or prison.

Yes, deciding to take on a BitLife robbery really is a life-or-death choice. A successful heist will grant you enough money to set your character up for life, while failure will most likely relegate you to a life behind bars. Sadly, there's no way to guarantee that your bank robbery will be successful, so it really is down to luck.

If you manage to pull off a bank robbery, then you'll unsurprisingly bag yourself plenty of cash. There's no fixed amount that you're guaranteed each time, though you can expect to receive funds in the hundreds of thousands.

However, the chances are that your BitLife bank robbery won't be successful. The margin for success is very slim, so more often than not, you'll find yourself in trouble with the police. Generally speaking, you'll catch the attention of the police, who will then arrest you. If it's your first time facing charges of bank robbery, you'll be faced with 11 years in prison, so you'll need to hire a good lawyer to help you get off scot-free. The more times you're caught robbing banks, the harsher the punishment, so it really can be a downward spiral.

BitLife bank robbery tips

Since successfully pulling off a BitLife bank robbery is no easy feat, we've compiled a few useful tips to help boost your chances of success.

First and foremost, you'll want to stockpile as much spare cash as possible. Since the likelihood of actually pulling off a robbery is slim, you'll end up needing a lot of money to pay for legal fees. The trial process is often stacked against you, so if you aren't paying for the top lawyers, you'll probably end up behind bars. Therefore, cash is your best friend, so try and have some solid savings behind you before you attempt your first heist.

Equally, it's a good idea to have a getaway vehicle ready. You can select one of the pre-determined options when arranging your heist, but these are usually wacky options, like a hoverboard or scooter. If you own a vehicle, then you can use that as a getaway, which is more likely to help you escape the law. If you don't own a car, then you can pull off a grand theft auto to "borrow" one. The consequences won't be too dire, as you'll already be a wanted fugitive!

That's everything you need to know about the bank robbery mechanics in BitLife. We've gone over what they are, how to do them, and the risky consequences if things go awry.
