How to Rob a Train in BitLife

Before you unlock Train Robbery in BitLife, you must age up your character to 18 years old. Once your character turns 18, head into the Activities tab and tap Crime. Select Train Robbery to pick a train and time to commit the crime. While the train you choose does not matter, time is by far the most crucial part of the process. You’ll find five options for train robbery times:

  • Sunrise – 6 AM
  • High Noon – 12 PM
  • 4:20 PM – 4:20 PM
  • Sunset – 6 PM
  • Midnight – 12 AM

The easiest time to catch these times depends on your schedule and preference. To rob a train in BitLife, the time you choose must match your real-world timezone. This means that if you’re attempting to rob a train at 4:20 PM ingame, it must also be 4:20 PM on your phone. Furthermore, if you try to time skip, your character will die while robbing the train, resulting in a failed attempt.

Rather than changing your phone’s time, the main way to do this is to set your alarm for a minute or two before your chosen time. For example, if your goal is to rob the Midnight train for the Going Anywhere achievement, set your alarm for 11:58 or 11:59 PM and wait until Midnight to rob the train. Be sure to note that you’ll miss the train and fail the attempt if you’re even one minute late! While this method isn’t guaranteed to succeed, since your character may still miss the train, it’ll raise your chances significantly.

Fortunately, if you succeed in your train robbery attempt, you’ll easily gain over $5 million in your character’s currency. If you’re lucky, you may get anywhere from $10 to $30 million. It is also an activity you can repeatedly do throughout your character’s life as long as you hit each time perfectly.
