BitLife Deployment Guide – How to get Deployed in BitLife

The go-to guide for getting deployed in Bitlife and how to survive the deployment minigame.

If you're on the road to becoming a military general in BitLife, then expect to get deployed. But deployment happens very differently on BitLife—it's more brains than brawns! If you play Minesweeper, that's great, but otherwise, here's our BitLife Deployment Guide to help.

How to get deployed in BiLlife

To get deployed in BitLife, you must first join the army via the jobs tab. After this, deployments will happen randomly after you hit the age button. Before joining the military, however, I highly recommend having high health, athletics, and discipline first. This is, so you have an easier time getting promotions. Once you have levels in all three stats, feel free to join the army whenever.

After you join the army, you will get deployed at some point, and when it happens, you will need to play a mini-game similar to Minesweeper. We have a guide for this too, don't worry!

How to survive deployment in BitLife - Minesweeper guide

Your first move when playing the mini-game is always up to random chance. I like to start out with one of the corner tiles, hoping to open up a larger mass of squares. Then, I tend to just randomly hit squares until I am able to make a determination precisely on where a mine will be.

Important note: The images we used are just examples from my game. No two games will ever be the same! Think of this guide as important "tips" rather than a step-by-step one.

What do the numbers mean?

The numbers correspond to how many mines are touching that particular number. You'll notice that there are some empty open blocks, which means there are no mines touching them, which is why they will open in a larger space.

For example, if there's a number 1, then there's one mine touching that number. So, if you have a 1 like above on a corner of a tile and it's not touching any other tiles, then you know for sure that it's a mine. Tap and hold on that tile to put a flag on it, that will let you keep in mind which is a mine and which isn't!

Now that we know what each number means, we can determine where mines are. We see that there are two different number 1s touching tiles on corners. So, we know for sure that those are mines. If we look below, there's a number 2 that is only touching two blocks. So, we know for sure that those two are mines.

The number 2 between the 1s is touching the middle tile. We know that the 2 are already touching two different mines, so we can safely press that tile. We are now left with the following field.

Now we have a ton of 2s, there's one to the right of the flagged tiles. It's only touching that tile and one other one, so we know for sure that it is a mine.

We now have the 2 directly below it that we know is safe. So, that means the tile to the right of the newly flagged tile is safe! The 2 to the left of that mine are also touching a tile, so we can press that one too.

We now have a 1 on the right side touching only one tile so we know that's a mine. On the left, we have a 2 that's only touching two tiles. This makes both of those left one's mines. That leaves us with two safe tiles that we can tap on to open up further options!

That opens things up quite a bit, so you'll have a 2 towards the top right that is only touching two tiles so we can flag that one.

That confirms the three mines are touching the 3 and the 1 next to it. There's also a 1 at the top right that is touching a tile we can safely press. These are the final ones we need, so all we need to do is flag the top left one and it's complete!

That's how you would complete a full deployment game. It can sometimes get a bit more difficult because of the size of the board. That seems to be randomly decided, and it doesn't change much other than adding more mines.
