BitLife Ribbons List Guide – How-to Get All of The Ribbons!

We're taking a look at how to obtain all of the banners in BitLife!

Our BitLife Ribbons List Guide will walk you through the process of obtaining all of the ribbons in the game! There are now 30 ribbons you can get with a more recent update, and we'll explain how you get each one of these!

Ribbons are handed out when you complete a full life in BitLife. The ribbon is visible over your gravestone once you've completed a life, and you can always check which ones you've earned in the main menu under cemetery. There are currently 30 of them you can earn, and they have you engaging in a bunch of different activities and jobs throughout the various lives you will have to live. Some of them are a bit more difficult than others, but they are fun to try to collect.

BitLife Ribbons List

The key to get some of these Ribbons in BitLife is that you need to make sure not to excel or do too much in other parts of your life. The big one is making too much money, this can cause you to get some of the cash based Ribbons.

Another tip for these is to keep your health relatively poor. You'll want your Bitizen to croak as quickly as possible so you don't accidentally gain another Ribbon. This isn't always advised, some of the Ribbons require you to be further along in your life.

Academic

You'll want to focus as much on school as possible. Study hard when you enter, go to college, keep studying each year, graduate from college and go to graduate school, then go for a job at a school whether it's a teacher or an assistant principal. Stay at that job and go to the library every once in a while to keep up with your bookishness!

You actually don't have to go for an education based job, but it is the safer way to do it. Just make sure not to go into a position that will make you earn too much money. Nursing is a solid option, just keep under one million cash in the bank!

Addict

For this one you are going to need to hit the blackjack tables and bet on the ponies. Do that until you get an addiction for each and don't go to rehab. If you are offered any drugs, be sure to take them up on that offer! Make sure not to gain too much money gambling or you might get a ribbon you didn't want!

Cat Lady

Start off as a female Bitizen! Focus on adopting as many cats as you can and make sure to take care of them by spending time with them and all the other options. Largely ignore all of your other responsibilities and only spend time with your feline friends. This one is a lot easier if you're a Bitizen (costs $4.99 USD), because you can adopt from the Cat Breeder instead of the Animal Shelter. You'll want to purchase a house that has at least 4 - 6 rooms, because this will allow you to keep more cats. You'll want to have at least five cats at all times to get this ribbon!

Cunning

To obtain the cunning ribbon, you will want to commit a crime and get sent to prison. First, you'll need to find out how much a sex change operation is in your country. Make enough money to cover that, and then commit the crime. You then need to successfully escape from jail! After that, you will need to have the sex change surgery. Once you've done that, you can (optionally) emigrate to a new country to make it harder for you to be caught again. That doesn't always work, but you can still get the ribbon, you just need to not get caught again. If you're on an iOS device (iPhone or iPad) and you get caught, you can close the app and relaunch it which will make it so you weren't caught. Live your life until the end and you should get the Cunning ribbon!

Check out a bit more detailed explanation with our Cunning Ribbon Guide.

Deadly

This one is somewhat similar to the cunning ribbon, but you have to commit multiple murders (at least two) in your lifetime. Clubbing Them and doing a Drive-By are typically the most likely to work without you getting caught, so be sure to get your license!

Family Guy

Start off as a male, and hopefully be born into a relatively small family. Get yourself hitched and have at least a couple of kids, but three might be better. Make sure to keep their happiness bars as high as possible throughout your life. Make sure not to earn too much money, otherwise you can easily get another ribbon.

Famous

It's time to find yourself a job in the entertainment industry. You can being an actor or go down a path that is a bit more risque! You can also gain this ribbon by posting a lot on social media and gaining a big following.

Fertile

You need to pop out quite a few kids to gain the fertile ribbon. Have at least four children, and make sure you don't do too much else with your life other than be a halfway decent mother!

Geriatric

You'll need to live into your 100s to get this ribbon. Go to the doctor if you have any illnesses, if your health is low and you don't have an ailment then head to the alternative doctor. Hit the gym, get acupuncture, and keep your happiness up. Make sure to go on vacations, you'll need to keep yourself happy!

Globetrotter

It's time to travel around the globe to get this ribbon. You'll need to emigrate a bunch of time, and take a bunch of vacations. You'll need to make money to accomplish this, just make sure you don't make too much and get the wrong ribbon.

Hero

To become a hero you'll need to either become a doctor, nurse, or join the army. You'll need to make sure not to engage in any conflicts, but also don't make too much cash and get the wrong ribbon!

High Roller

You need to make a bunch of cash early on to get this ribbon. You'll need all that cash to make some big bets. Head to either the casino or the racetrack. I would recommend the casino, because Blackjack is relatively simple to play and win. The racetrack is pure luck, but at cards you can at least somewhat influence the outcome. Bet big stacks at the tables, and attempt to rack up over one million dollars in winnings. Once you do, cease making money so you don't accidentally get the Rich ribbon (five million).

Houdini

This one requires you to head to prison and then escape, but then to do it again and again. You'll want to just continue to repeat this process as many times as you can.

If you are struggling to evade capture, then check out our BitLife How-to Escape Prison Guide!

Jailbird

The jailbird ribbon is for players who stay the majority of their life in prison and then die there. When you get to prison, you'll want to escape! You need to go in and out of prison at least 4 - 5 times. Once you've done this, you can just go back to prison for the final time and just keep aging up until you perish. Be careful not to escape too many times or you could get the Houdini ribbon instead!

Lazy

Not much to this one other than just hitting the age button over and over until you die!

Loaded

Loaded requires you to earn over 10 million dollars! You'll need to be very successful, so studying up and working hard in school is the easiest path for this. Get a scholarship and try to become a doctor. This is likely the easiest path to big money. You can also marry a rich person, gamble to gain money, get an inheritance from your parents, or attempt to win the lottery (you might as well try for this even if it's unlikely to win). Another job that earns a lot of money is being an actor, so do that and work on your social media presence to gain a higher salary.

Lustful

For Lustful you'll want to hook up with people as much as possible. Make sure this is your focus, head to the nightclubs and engage in as many one-night stands as possible. You'll want to engage with at least around 30+ partners to achieve this ribbon.

Mediocre

Do a whole lot of nothing and live a boring life where you don't accomplish or do much. You might just end up running into this one while playing normally, it's not too hard to live a mediocre life in this game.

Model Bitizen

Never drink or do any drugs, and make sure to heave a good relationship with each and every family member. Don't do too much else, and make sure to do the right thing if any random events comes up.

Mooch

Hit up all of your family members for as much cash as possible! Do this with your significant other as well, just make sure to continually try to live off of your loved ones.

Rich

You'll just need to have a net worth of one million at the end of your life. This is pretty easy to achieve if you study hard academically, go to college, and then head to a high paying career.

Rowdy

Head to the clubs and argue with as many people as possible. You don't need to beat people up, because that's an easy way to head to prison.

Scandalous

Rather than just being argumentative like the rowdy ribbon, the scandalous ribbon requires you to get into fights and spend sometime in jail. Just don't spend too much time there, but keep being aggressive throughout your life and you should achieve this badge.

Stupid

Drop out of school, and don't ever read a book! Make stupid decisions like unsafe sexual relations, and pick the worst choice when confronted with any event.

Successful

This one is all about having a good life, but not TOO good of a life. Get married, have some kids, get a decent job, but don't make too much money and run into some of the money based ribbons.

Teammate

To obtain the teammate ribbon, you'll need to become an app developer with BitLife. When you create your Bitizen, make sure you start them in the United States and in Miami. You'll need to hit the books, study hard, and head to the library in your early years. Go to college and select Computer Science as your major, and once you graduate you should be able to take up a job as an app developer. This just happens to be where BitLife is made!

You can even get fired from the job, but as long as you held it at some point, you should get the ribbon!

Thief

The thief ribbon requires you to steal and steal without getting caught. This one can be very RNG based, so you might need to do it quite a few times. The hardest part is avoiding jail, try to hire a high priced lawyer if possible to avoid anytime behind bars.

Unlucky

This one is pretty much random chance, sometimes your character will just die early in life. If that happens, you will obtain the unlucky ribbon!

Wasteful

The wasteful ribbon is extremely easy to get, all you need to do is start a game and before you do anything head to activities and then surrender. That's it, just give up your life and you get the wasteful ribbon.

Wicked

This one has you attempting a bunch of threesomes! You will need a partner who has a high crazy stat, and then you can head to the nightclub and attempt to convince people to engage in some three way action with you and your partner. You'll want to largely avoid any one night stands, and just focus on the threesomes.

  1. A while ago my belts reset, and I was trying to get the ‘Cunning’ ribbon. I never worked though, and made around 60k with car theft, burglary, pickpocketing and begging my parents for money (I got $2 from them in total, so that doesn’t matter) I was once caught for car theft, but somehow the public defender proved me not guilty. I eventually got killed by someone I pickpocketed and got the Thief ribbon…

  2. can i have extra tips on getting cat lady while not being a bitizen cause that’s the last one i need and i really want all of them and can i get tips on getting the mystery ones too

  3. Im trying to get the addict ribbon and im wondering how many times you exactly need to gamble and go to the horse races?

  4. I literally emigrated 20+ times and went on 20+ vacations and lived until 100 and I didn’t get the globetrotter ribbon, I got the mediocre.

      1. I tried to get Stupid. I drop off school. I didn’t read. I did LOTS of night stands. But then I got Wicked so that was a huge lie on Wicked

        1. You should start out with a really stupid person, it helps. And just doing threesomes or stands shouldn’t be the focus. Just make the stupidest decisions.

    1. If you don’t want hero:
      Don’t join the military
      Always call the police instead of saving the person

      I like joining the the military and make the same mistake a lot.

    1. I once got the deadly ribbon for killing 15 people if you include the 3 people who were in my family. Hope that helps you!

  5. Your supposed to get $100,000,000 to get the loaded ribbon. I got this ribbon by going to the casino multiple times and betting a lot of money and if you loose exit the game completely ( quickly ) and go back again -this helps to prevent you from loosing any money I’m an Android user and it got me that ribbon hope this helps.

  6. So my Wi-Fi was horrible for a couple of days and ALL my ribbons reset.😡 I don’t know why but it’s fine I’ll live with it.

      1. I got Lustful by having over like 100 lovers. I think you have to be careful with the STDs and using a condom, cuz then you could accidentally get wicked

  7. hey everyone quick tip: to get the wicked ribbon, another way to do it is to get STDs on purpose and then have a bunch of one night stands without condoms, effectively giving everyone you have intercourse with STDs. i did this and it worked out perfectly.

      1. I got the hero because I saved a stranger from a gorilla who ended up decapitation me with a gorilla punch.

    1. Try and do one night stands and dating app that worked for me also when you first get love option at the early age try and ask a bunch of people out that also helps

  8. Sureture way to get deadly ribbon:

    Start in Afghanistan
    Hook up with multiple people
    Buy a car
    Commit drive by’s on all exes
    If works correctly, you will never get caught

  9. I’M SO MAD I RESCUED A BUNCH OF PETS FROM THE ANIMAL SHELTER THAT WERE UNHAPPY AND LOW HEALTH BUT SINCE I HAD OVER A MILLION DOLLARS I GOT THE RICH BANNER AND I WORKED SO HARD😢

    1. were you trying to get hero or cat lady? because if you wanted hero it’s easier to just help out people or join the army

      1. To get Family Guy, it’s best to probably start off as a male just in case. You have to have a kinda average job, and all you do is focus on your family by keeping your relationship bars high, to the max is best. You can get lazy in the end and just click “spend time with them all” so you don’t have to go to each and every family member to keep their bars high. Try not to get too good of a job becuase you don’t want to be labeled Mediocre or Successful. Just center your life on family. It took me two triees to get it, but it will happen in the end.

      2. I got addict by maybe going to the club 3 times (don’t do it too much or you’ll get rowdy) and every time I was offered something I took it. Also got addicted to gambling (though I failed miserably cuz I don’t want rich or loaded). For the rest I had a normal job, maybe 1-2 hookups but no actual relationship, and forgot to buy a house (whoops)

    1. Try not to go to university/college. Just get a normal job (like trucker or hairdresser or something) and do your best to live long.

    1. yeah, you can get the hero badge by trying to save people or animals in random events. like trying to stop a robber or something and then dying in the process

  10. My BitLife is complete. Thanks for the guide, now I am a bitizen and have completed most of the ribbons. Just got unlucky and teammate. I’m going to Miami, baby!

  11. They are on iPhone, I’m on android too, iphone has a lot more options of stuff, sometimes it can work on android tho

  12. You can also get wicked by having kids and then abandoning them. My Bitlife had a bunch of one night stands, gave people chlamydia and had two kids she promptly abandoned at the age of 3.

  13. I tried to get fertility, not knowing how… so I had about a hundred one night stands, got gonnorhea, HIV, and Hep B, had 14 kids and 1 miscarriage, and eventually died at 60 of the bubonic plague. Yay! I got the wicked badge instead

    1. I did that for family guy. Had 27 kids, all at 100% and got wicked all because after he died he had one night stands and babies with random women.

    1. You have to kill multiple people. I got it by killing my ex, then random people every time I escaped from jail, more random people, my dad, attempting to kill my brother,…….

      1. Every time I get busted I double tap and swipe up. That makes Bitlife forget it ever happened! Doing this I got 64 murders 😂

    1. I’ve done that before !! My game sometimes completely starts over so I lose all my ribbons… I had 14, and now I only have 5 !

  14. I was going for burglary and I didn’t get caught and then I died after suffering a stroke and I got mediocre

  15. Every time I get addicted to any drugs I die of an overdose and get the 👹rowdy ribbon instead of the 💊addicted ribbon.

  16. I was only a grocer when I got the hero ribbon. I stayed that way most of the life, but saved a lot of people’s lives in random events.

    1. Remember you have to be born in Miami, USA for it to work. It’s not a teammate job listing that is the name of the ribbon achievement, the job is app developer – I think it actually says app tester – it will be on the low end of jobs – low pay

  17. The most successful character I had was a character with my own name born in my country, lived in France, died at 119 years old with a 39M net worth and was a porn star her whole life. It was really cool bc when a plastic surgeon botchered my surgery it’s fairly easy to sue them for 1M and also marrying really old and rich man.

  18. I’ve figured out away to amass 100 million every life. All you have to do is go to university, major in english or arts, and get the “writing” job as soon as it appears. The pay will only be 23,000 or so but work hard at your job and you’ll become famous. Shortly after becoming famous you’ll be able to make $1 Million+ a year as a publisher or writer and you’ll be able to do commercials which can pay up to 3 million. Not to mention you can write books, etc. for more money. You’ll also attract the best mates to make the best possible babies. Go to Canada, Australia, or New Zealand to avoid estate tax. I always gift the entire estate to one child but if you divide equally you can gift like 20 million to each child upon death.

    1. You don’t have to emigrate, as long as you don’t get caught again you’ll get the ribbon. If you get caught and you’re on an iPhone/iPad, you can close the app and reopen it.

  19. I had a net worth of 1 mill and got mediocre but had a net worth of half that and got successful- excuse me wtf?

  20. idk how but i wanted to get a loaded ribbon so i became a brain surgeon and became rich i have 15 million dollars but i was rich still.

    1. I have just had an issue where I won the $13,000,000 lottery jackpot and hen I still got rich with a net worth of $16,001,356…

      1. If you want to murder people in bitlife drive by is by far the best way to do it, drop out of school as soon as you can, get a job and earn a bit of money, make sure you pass your driving test and as soon as you turn 18, buy the cheapest car there is (you might want to save the rest of the money for if you ever need something) then commit a few drive bys then when you get out in prison escape when you can and repeat, use that car until it breaks and you have to pay, don’t repair it, steal a new car, you are far more likely to successfully do this of you have killed people then repeat (I got 48 murders in 15 years doing this method)

  21. I had 89 threesomes trying to get the wicked ribbon, 3 husbands left me for someone in the threesome, every time they left me I had to pay them, all this to end up with the lustful ribbon…

    1. I’ve been trying to get the Lustful ribbon but keep getting wicked. All i did was do one night stands constantly and and ask to do a threesome a few times.

  22. i had 35 cats and didn’t do anything besides talk to them and i got the successful banner. Hhhooooww??

    1. I don’t know, sometimes this game is crazy on how it decides which banner you get. Make sure to have a house so you can have more total cats. I believe you need to have at least five cats with you.

      1. I got the cat lady ribbon by getting cats from the shelters and I could only have 4 cats at a time, heaps of my cats died so you just have to continue on adopting cats. I lived til 111 so it took awhile.

      2. I got the cat lady ribbon by keeping my cats completely happy I’m pretty much every single year and not having any relationship at all with any of my family including skipping both my parents and my nieces funerals. I had 1 living niece out of 3 when I died cause I died at like 103 and 2 of my nieces died at 78 and 75. I had one living relative left and that was my third niece. The point is keep adopting cats, make sure they’re happy all the time and have no relationship at all with any of your family. It takes a while.

    1. Hey, I’ve revised the description for Jailbird. You just need to go to jail and escape and go back like 4 – 5 times. Once you’ve done that, just age up until you are out of prison.

      1. Ive gotten that one before all you gotta do is fail to kill someone and then start riots and fail to escape prison every year until you die

  23. I had 72 lovers to get lustful and I got wicked. I abandoned or put my 7 children up for adoption. I was murdered by one of my children

  24. I was aiming for model bitizen and I never drank or did drugs, I had a perfect relationship with every family member and I was never in a relationship and didn’t have kids yet I still got successful.

      1. You can start out as an app tester if it comes up. It’s a low paying job but if you get a promotion you’ll get to be an app developer. Also make sure you’re living in Miami, United States to get the teammate ribbon.

  25. Once I got the hero ribbon but I was not a nurse or a veteran or anything (I was a porta potty pumper), the only thing I did was save someone who was overdosing so I’m pretty sure that you can also get the hero ribbon that way

    1. Yeah you can get hero for mutiple ways than just being in the army or being a nurse. You can help someone for and overdose, saving someone from suicide and other stuff like that.

    1. BitLife chooses the ribbons weirdly… if you want to get academic then try to study hard from Elementary to High School, and do the same with University. Try to get into Graduate School too.

  26. So I got wicked by having exactly 50 one night stands (I counted) and dying of hepatitis B after getting and giving almost every sexually transmitted disease in the game

  27. I was trying to get stupid so I dropped out of school and did a bunch of hookups and was unprotected (gave a lot of people STD’s) but I got the wicked ribbon.

  28. It’s kinda hard to get family guy because I had full bars with lots of people and only got successful when I died and had only three kids

    1. I got family guy my first play through because I kept full bars at all times including every pet and I spent time with my family at every chance I could. My character was also a marriage councilor and married the first woman he dated on top of renewing their vows every few years.

  29. This soooooo helpful you don’t understand at alllllll thank you do much for this its so good to have this if people are concerned

  30. Thank you so much! This will help me so much. But maybe the question marked ones like teammate and model bitizen you might just put parentheses with a question mark in them to show that those are it. But other wise these were so help full. Also i got the unlucky badge at when i was just starting to play! I died at 18…! (and i tried so hard to get the cunning badge but kept getting the scandalous badge.😢😅)

  31. I got the cunning ribbon without emigrating. I just stole enough money to get a sex change then went back to school and died of cancer shortly after. Also in the same life I escaped prison several times.

  32. I had a whole bunch of one night stands but I didn’t treat STDs and gave them to people I slept with. I got the wicked ribbon. So I think there’s more than one way to get that one lol

    1. Success is one of the easiest, to get it you can have live a normal life (Make sure you only got around 500K when you die though.)
