BitLife How to Rob a Train

We're taking a look at how to successful rob a train in BitLife! There was a recent update to the game that added a bunch of robbery and crime options to the game, and one of those options is the ability to rob a train. It would seem like a relatively simple thing to do, but there's a trick or two to know before making an attempt!

How to Commit a Train Robbery Successfully

You'll need to get to about 18 years old before you can rob the train. Once that unlocks for you, look for the Train Robbery option under Crime. You will have two options you can pick from in this menu. First is the option of the train you can choose to rob. This option doesn't seem to matter, so pick whichever one sounds interesting to you. The second option is the important part, and you will need to select a time. The options you can pick from are: Sunrise, High Noon, 4:20PM, Sunset, and Midnight. The time you pick will need to correspond to your time in real life for you to actually encounter a train! So, pick the one nearest your current time and hopefully the train will show up and you can rob it!

Do not change the time on your phone to match the time when you want to rob the train. BitLife has now made it so you will get run over by the train if you do!

Let me know in the comments if you're able to rob the train using this method! I'm trying to narrow down what the exact parameters are that will help you be successful.

  1. Just tried 4:20pm on Android and got $23Mil. I tried robbing the train at 4:19, and train never turned up. Then it did at 4:20pm. But only at 4:20pm, like, I couldn’t rob multiple trains at 4:20pm because it would say that I couldn’t board the other trains I tried.

  2. I tried to do this and it didn’t work it is currently 12:58 AM and I chose midnight and that didn’t work so i chose the two above it and it still didn’t work

  3. I keep trying to rob the train at noon and 4:20 but it keeps running me over even though I didn’t change the time on my phone. I have done it before and it ran me over. I’m starting to think that once you change it, it always makes you get run over.

    1. I once waited til 4:20 pm to rob a train but I died since it was apparently a “time cheat”. I didn’t change the time on my device though, so I don’t know why it would do that.

  4. I’ve robbed trains twice on my account. Once at noon and once at 4:20. Different characters but the same family legacy. It has to be *exactly* that time. It won’t work at, say, 11:59 or 12:01. Haven’t figured out the sunrise or sunset times, though.
