How to Study Opponents in The Sims 4

Before you can study opponents in The Sims 4, you’ll need a computer! In the build menu, you can either use the search bar to look for computers or head to Objects by Room > Study > Computers. Depending on your household funds and personal preference, you can choose any PC here as long as it isn’t Toddlers-only. In other words, it doesn’t matter if you buy the $800 Deskblock or a $10,000 Ghostwriter unless you feel like showing off your wealth.

After buying a computer to use, select any Sim in your household that is a professional athlete. Regular sims will not have the Study Opponents option. With your professional athlete, click the computer, go to Web and pick Study Opponents. Your Sim will head to the PC and start studying.

A safe bet is to start around 3-4 hours before work so that you have enough time to eat, shower, or take a nap before heading out.
