Several BitLife challenges, from the Paranormal to Ooky Spooky challenges, require you to harness your character’s inner terrifying nature to spook someone to death. Let’s talk about how to scare someone to death in BitLife.

BitLife: How to Scare Someone to Death

To scare someone to death in BitLife, head into the Activities menu, pick Crime, and choose Murder. From here, choose any victim you wish, and select scare to death as your method. To successfully pull off the attempt, your target must pass away without you getting caught by the police.

However, scaring to death is one of the most challenging methods you can use on someone. More often to not, the attempt fails, resulting in your victim either calling the police or retaliating, injuring or even killing your character. With that said, there are multiple ways to tackle this:

  1. Buy and use the Assassin’s Blade item to guarantee you’ll get away with the murder.
  2. Use a character with the crime special talent to increase your odds of success.
  3. Close and re-open the BitLife app if your character’s happiness drops to zero during the attempt.
  4. Accept your fate and try again.

If you want a quick and easy way to get away with the murder attempt and don’t mind spending money, the Assassin’s Blade is a surefire way to do this. Alternatively, you can try to scare someone to death with a character who specializes in crime or just close and reopen the game until your attempt works. If your target kills your character, you can either age backwards a few years, or start over and attempt it on a different save file.
