How to become a Street Hustler in BitLife

Run the Streets!

To become a Street Hustler in BitLife, you need to locate Street Hustler under the Special Career tab in Jobs. But before you can do this, you will first need to finish High School. After finishing High School, visit Special Careers and locate the Street Hustler option. The Street Hustler option will list one of four Street Hustler jobs, which are called Hustles. Choosing one of these jobs will allow you to become a Street Hustler in BitLife. 

What are Hustles in BitLife? 

Hustles are Street Hustler jobs added with the Street Hustler update in BitLife. Each job offers a unique method for making money on one of the various Streets in a city. Certain Hustles revolve around begging for money, performing for money, or scamming people. All Hustles will also have skill levels that players will need to increase to get better at the hustle and earn more money.

How to increase Street Hustler Skills in BitLife

Increasing your Hustle skills in BitLife depends on the job. You can get better at some jobs, like Busker and Street Performer, by Practicing. Other jobs, such as Pandhandler and Scam Artist, require you to keep doing the job to increase your Hustle Skill. If you want to get better as a Busker or Street Performer and increase your skills, you need to use the Practice option. You can find the Practice option under the Street Hustler tab below Jobs. But, to improve Hustle skills for jobs like Panhandler, you need to keep aging up

You will eventually get better as a Panhandler and earn more money as you age up. To help increase your skills faster as a Panhandler, we recommend living on a high traffic street. The more traffic a street has, the more chances for you to panhandle and increase your Hustle skill. Aging up is also how you increase your Scam Artist skills. Living on high traffic streets works similarly with the Scam Artist hustle.

However, you will need to watch out for high numbers of Police as a Scam Artist. If a street has a high number of Police, it will increase the chance of getting caught and going to jail. Because of this, you will need to choose a street with decent traffic but low Police presence to get better as a Street Hustler.

How Streets work in the BitLife Street Hustler Update

Streets are where players will conduct their Street Hustles to earn money. Streets have three stats that affect how players perform, the opportunities present, and the chances to earn money. Here's what all of the Street stats are:

  • Traffic: Traffic is the stat for how many people are present or go through a street on a daily basis. High Traffic streets give players ample chances to earn money using Hustles every year.
  • Crime: Crime is how dangerous a Street is in BitLife, and high crime will offer a high chance to get drugs and run into Criminal elements when trying to Hustle in BitLife.
  • Police: High Police stats on a Street indicates a high Police presence. High Police presence increases the chances of getting caught, reported for scamming people, reported for selling drugs, or reported for doing any illegal activities.
