How to Become a Mafia Boss in BitLife

If there is, your character’s special talent is crime-related. While this is not required to join the mafia, it’ll help you later. After making your character, age up until they unlock crime in the Activities menu. Until your character turns 18, commit petty crimes to catch the attention of the various organized crime syndicates in the game. Some easier crimes include shoplifting, burglary, bank robbery, and grand theft auto. If the police catch you at any point, you can close and re-open the BitLife app or cooperate with the arrest.
Continue aging up until your character turns 18 years old. Once they do, head into the Special Careers and choose the crime syndicate of your choice. After joining, you’ll initially start as an Associate but will have the opportunity to climb the ranks. Below are the ranks you’ll have to advance through to become a Mafia Boss in BitLife:

Furthermore, accept the offer without hesitation if your bosses ask you to perform certain actions or go to events.

Be sure not to time skip, or else your character will die while attempting it! In some cases, successful robberies will instantly promote you in the following year.
- Never ask for promotions! Asking for promotions will almost always make your superiors annoyed you, greatly decreasing your chances of future success. However, you should always work hard each year like a regular job.
- Expose others as rats. If you successfully identify someone as a rat, you’ll gain positive relationships and reputation among your fellow mafia members. However, incorrectly exposing them will have adverse effects, so be careful when doing this!
