Benefits for Bosses and Oracles

The Sims 4’s Criminal Career Rewards your Sim for their mischievous behavior.

You have the option to either become a Crime Boss, lead a gang, or explore the Oracle Branch to further your knowledge of Hacking and internet crimes.

The top qualities may vary, but the most recommended goals are Public Enemy or Chief of Mischief.

Both of these options grant the Dastardly Bonus Trait, which greatly enhances mischief interactions and provides a solid foundation for starting a career.

Job Levels in Criminal Career and Career Unlocks

One effective method for leveling up the Mischief Skill is to reach Level 2 and engage in some playful mischief on the forums.

This offers consistent progress, unlike relying on interactions with other Sims.

It’s a good idea to choose your branch early so that you can begin developing the necessary skills before you start working in that field.

Boss Career

The Search for Bank Blueprints ability, unlocked at level 9 and found under Web on the Computer, will boost your Sim’s Mischief Skill and grant an Inspired Moodlet for 2 Days.

This is a great way to level up your Mischief skills from the comfort of your own home without causing any conflicts with your family members.

I guess it may increase the chances of a bank heist happening while at work, but I haven’t personally experienced this.

If you happen to find the primary purpose of this ability, please feel free to inform us on the forum’s Suggestions board.

The rewards you receive for this Criminal Career emit a lighthearted and fun vibe, while the recommended mood for the Boss Career is focused.

Utilizing a Woodworking Table is a fantastic method for enhancing your Sim’s Handiness Skill.

Oracle Career

The Oracle Career will have your Sim specializing in Hacking and creating Viruses on the Computer.

You still have some room for improvement with Mischief, but Oracles are much more pleasant than Bosses.

Being highly intelligent is a valuable asset for this profession, as it increases the Sim’s chances of becoming focused while working.

Additionally, they can use the computer to explore Simpedia and even hack the mainframe to gain a focused buff.

This Criminal Career grants you the power to Hack Mainframe, along with one of the top-notch computers in the game.

While it may not be invincible, it boasts an impressive Fun rating and a reliability score of 8. Hacking Mainframe will enhance your Sim’s focus and increase the profitability of hacking when successful.

This makes the criminal career an attractive option for those interested in earning a lucrative income through Hacking.

The Patched In buff lasts for a generous 8 hours, allowing you to engage in a profitable endeavor of hacking the various servers with programming skill.
