1. How To Get Smart In BitLife

Not everyone is born a genius, but that does not mean you have to settle for a C+ throughout your life. As you could probably imagine, studying hard will help improve your intelligence rating in this game. Make sure you start studying as early as possible. You will be able to max out your smarts regardless of the rating you are born with, but it pays to be able to max it out at a younger age.

The good news here is that you only need to study hard once per year. The bonus is only available once every year, so there is no use in spamming this option multiple times before progressing. You should also drop by the library once a year in order to get that extra boost in your smarts rating. Just because you have your smarts up does not mean you should let your guard down, though. There are activities that can lower your smarts, so be careful. Stay away from alcohol and drugs throughout your lifetime in order to protect your smarts.

2. Good Looks Can Be Achieved

Appearance is a little trickier to max out compared to smarts. If you were unlucky enough to get extremely low looks upon birth, it might be better to just start over. You have the option to go to the gym once a year in order to boost your looks, but unlike smarts, you might not be able to max it out no matter how many times you lift those weights.

Aside from hitting the gym, you also have the option to go for plastic surgery. The problem with plastic surgery is that there is always a chance that it will get botched, and you end up in a worse position than what you started with. If you really want to try it out, it is best if you wait until mid-life and only choose the low-risk ones. You should also know when to stop getting these surgeries because the risk of failure goes up with each additional surgery you take.

3. Aiming For Great Grandkids

While becoming a great grandparent isn’t currently tied to a ribbon that you can achieve, there is always a chance that it will be added in the future. Nonetheless, it is a feat in itself and is worth trying if you don’t have anything else to aim for within the game. There are a few things you need to secure if you want to become a great grandparent.

First off, you need to live a very long life. That means you need to get as close to 120 years old as much as you can. This is a natural requirement since you want to live long enough to see your grandchildren grow up and start their own families. In order to live a very long life, you need to ensure all your bars are at least 90% full. Of course, if you can get them all to 100% then that’s even better.

Aside from living a long life, you would also want to have a lot of kids. While it is theoretically possible to have a great grandchild with just one child, having more will increase your odds. Try to aim for four kids before you reach 25 years old. This means having kids while you are still a teenager. It will be tough, but you need your kids to be old enough to reproduce before you hit your 50’s.

Living the best life possible requires a lot of work in BitLife. Make sure you remember our BitLife tips and tricks listed above to help improve your chances of success!
