In The Sims 4, there are several ways to meet an untimely end.

Death by steam, death by pufferfish, death by sunlight, death by poison, and death by guinea pig join the ranks of the more traditional causes of death such as old age, overexertion, electrocution, hunger, fire, drowning, cowplant, embarrassment, laughter, rocket ship crash landing, and cardiac explosion.

While killing a Sim in The Sims 4 will be more challenging than in earlier games in the series, it is still possible.

To quickly and easily end your Sim’s life, use one of the Death Cheats detailed below or on the official cheats page.

This guide will be revised as needed as new death kinds become available via expansion packs.

A Sim’s death is not the end of their story; they can return as a ghost and even move in with you. Any deceased Sim can be brought back to life if the player so chooses.

Death by Fire

Cooking fires, fireplace blazes, and rocket ships making emergency landings

A fire can be fatal to your Sim if it is started by the Sim or by your interior design abilities. To start a fire is a difficult and time-consuming task.

There will be a stampede when a fire breaks out on the property. Let your Sim stand in the flames for a while and prevent other Sims from putting out the blaze if you want them to perish there.

If you care about saving your Sims’ lives, you need to put out the fire as quickly as possible because it spreads rapidly and can even through walls.

Cause a Fire

  1. Use your poor Cooking skill with your low-quality stove (try to cook grilled cheese, this worked for me).
  2. Place carpets in front of the fire and let it burn for an extended period of time.
  3. Using the SimRay to effect a transformation on an item may result in an explosion (requires The Sims 4 Get to Work).
  4. Use your rocket ship to explore the galaxy, even if your Rocket Science proficiency is low. Place fruit in the exhaust pipe if you have Mischief skill level 8.
  5. One of the quickest methods is to not empty the Lint-Tray after each use of the dryer. The Sims 4 Laundry Day Stuff is required for this action.
  6. With The Sims 4 Seasons, you may destroy the holiday tree. A Sim lighting that tree will cause it to burn.

Use cheats to start a Fire

Simply typing in sims.add_buff BurningLove, your chance of starting a fire will be increased by 100% thanks to BurningLove. Using the cheat code stats will instantly kill all of your Sims with fire. Multiple times, enter stats.set_stat commodity_Buff_BurningLove_StartFire 7. The likelihood of starting a fire is increased by 15% every time they cheat code is entered and activated.

Prevent Fires from happening

Rooms with a higher fire risk should have smoke detectors and sprinklers installed. Having a fireplace in either the kitchen or the living room counts as such.

Fire.toggle ‘on/off’ is a useful trick that may be used to avoid potential fires (Set to off to prevent fires from happening)

Death by Drowning

Have fun watching your Sims perish in the pool. Drowning is a slow and painless way to die. Put up a fence around the pool and get rid of the ladder first.

So now we wait. As time goes on, your Sim will become fatigued and tired. Your Sim will eventually pass out and drown a few hours later.

Death by Laughter

Turn on the Hysterical mood in your virtual world. This has got to be the most creative way to die in any of the Sims games.

It’s not easy to have them laughing so hard they can’t stop playing. Collect positive emotions by doing things like decorating, spending time by a fire, or working out.

Here are some suggestions for inducing a fun mood in your Sim.

  1. To enjoy some comedic TV,
  2. Enjoy a relaxing bubble bath.
  3. Get the book out; make them laugh so hard they cry.
  4. Invoke the spirit of all your earned MySims Trophies by activating their glow.
  5. Activate the glow of the Plumbob lamps of reward: Tiki Topper Reward, also known as the Paws Anonymous Reward

Die by Laughter using a Cheat

Hysterical Sims may be obtained by cheating as well: sims.add_buff buff_Hysterical

Using this trick will put your Sim in a happy mood for a few hours, which is how long it takes for a Sim to die from laughing. The addition of a fun moodlet worth +100 should make this task rather easy.

Death by Cowplant

Don’t be shy, the Cowplant wants your Sim.

When cowplants get hungry, they lose their cuteness. To do this, one must first acquire a mature Cowplant and nurture it to full maturity.

A piece of cake will be visibly dangling from the Cowplant’s lips if you “neglect” to feed it for a bit. In the event that you select “Eat Cake,” your Sim may be consumed by the Cowplant.

Your Sim has a roughly 50% probability of making it through the game. Even if your Sim manages to spit them out, the Cowplant onslaught still poses a threat to their lives.

Maintaining a Cowplant’s health requires feeding it around once every 12 hours. Pet it when there’s no cake around, and you’ll be safe.

However, there is always the risk of being devoured if you try to consume the cake.

Death by Overexertion

Tire out your Sim’s senior years till they die of exhaustion.

Since the game prevents you from selecting active lifestyle options for a very Tired Sim, killing your Sim in this manner without resorting to cheating is quite tough.

It’s likely that your old Sim will die from overuse of the Woohoo feature if you pair them with your younger, more energetic Sim.

Keep an eye out for the Dangerously Tired moodlet, then force them to undertake one more activity before letting them die of Overexertion.

Try Woohooing with them again; they’ll respond positively every time. To tire out your Sim’s retirement years, try these strategies:

  1. Get Your Jog On
  2. Lift some weights, woot woot!
  3. Restoring cleanliness to soiled items

Use a Cheat to die of Overexertion

Your Sim will quickly die if you employ the trick sims.add_buff buff_Death_ElderExhaustion_Warning. This trick is not just for the elderly; it is effective for people of all ages.

Death by Electrocution

If you want to blow up your Sim, try fixing electronics. If your Sim’s Handiness Skill is under 5, they may get singed or seriously fried when fixing things around the house.

After this, your Sim will die from electrocution if you try to fix any other electronic item. You may try fixing low-quality appliances like a TV, oven, fridge, radio, or microwave.

Use the Electrocution Cheat for faster results

To give your Sim the Seriously Fried moodlet, which will leave them bewildered for 4 hours, use sims.add_buff buff_Death_Electrocution_Warning. There is a substantial risk of electrocution if you do any repairs on your Sim at that time.

Death by Hunger

Starve your Sim to death.

In the Sims, malnutrition kills after around 48 hours. If your Sim gets the Ravenous moodlet, they need to eat within 24 hours or die. The quickest way to ensure your Sim’s death is to shut them in a room with no exits and no food.

Get the Ravenous moodlet with a Cheat

Obtain the ravenous moodlet immediately by calling sims.add_buff Buff_Motives_Hunger_Starving. Now, if your Sim doesn’t eat within 24 hours, they will die.

Death by Embarrassment

Put your mortified Sim to sleep in shame In The Sims 4, it’s not easy to die from shame. Embarrassment as a cause of death is extremely rare and only occurs in the most extreme of situations for Sims.

Once your Sim has reached the point of extreme embarrassment, you can go on to the next step, Mortified.

Hold on to this moodlet for a few hours, and your Sim will perish. You may prevent your Sim from being killed by clicking on a bed and selecting “Hide from everyone.” Here are some ways to embarrass your Sim:

  1. In the presence of other Sims, defecate on the ground.
  2. Intrude on a stranger when they’re in the restroom.
  3. Startle a stranger in the shower.
  4. Go through town without taking even the most basic hygiene precautions.
  5. Confess your sins to another Sim in an awkward chat.
  6. Try interrupting strangers who are in the middle of something Woohooing
  7. Low-level instrument practice with other Sims present.
  8. Have your marriage proposal turned down

Get your Sim Mortified with a Cheat

Use the sims.add_buff Buff_Mortified cheat to make your Sim die in a few hours.

Death by Cardiac Explosion

The goal is to get your Sim so furious that they explode in wrath and crash and burn.

It’s not hard to cause your Sim to commit suicide out of rage. Engage in hostile exchanges with your Sims to provoke fights. To prevent your Sim from committing suicide out of rage, give them a cold shower. Learn how to incite anger in your Sim by engaging in the following activities:

  1. Engage in demeaning social interactions
  2. Put your Sim in a battle!
  3. Take a look at an angry piece of art.
  4. Indulge in some Angry Flaming Spaghetti (needs level 5 Cooking Skill and the Angry mood).

Get your Sim Enraged with a Cheat

Use sims.add_buff buff_Enraged to instantly give your Sim the Enraged mood let. Your Sim will die in a few hours after you used the cheat.

Death by natural causes

It’s recommended that you let your Sims mature to death. It should come as no surprise that The Sims 4 also features a natural death option.

Your Sim will die in old age when they reach the Elderly life stage. To find out how much time you and your Sim’s senior citizen have left, go to the Simology section (Y).

You may disable your Sim’s aging in the game’s settings menu if you don’t want them to die of old age.

You can move things forward more quickly if you own The Sims 4 Seasons. By placing a Death Flower in an arrangement, a Sim with the flower-arranging talent can murder a senior citizen Sim.

If a Sim receives this as a gift, he or she will rapidly age, and all elderly Sims who have received it will perish.

Death By Steam

Submit your Sim to the sauna’s intense heat and humidity. Day at the Spa in The Sims 4

Your Sim might perish if they indulge in an extended sauna session full of superfluous steam. While in the sauna, your Sim will see a gradual increase in their positive mood throughout the first several hours.

If you wish to murder your Sims, you should put them back in the sauna as soon as possible after the Supreme Steaming mood let ends.

Your Sim will start to feel uneasy after only a few more hours. After then, your Sim will need to be held in the Saunas for a little while longer if you want them to perish.

After dying after being immersed in steam for too long, a Sim will be overheated and dehydrated.

Death by Pufferfish

To use the Pufferfish’s deadly venom to end your Sim’s life, you’ll need The Sims 4’s City Living expansion.

The pufferfish is an exceptional yet highly toxic species of fish. Pufferfish nigiri, if prepared poorly, has the potential to kill your Sim.

A highly trained chef is required to properly cook Pufferfish so that your Sim won’t get sick from eating them.

Check the quality of the food before serving it to your Sim, as undercooked Pufferfish Nigiri has a 50% risk of causing death.

Putting your Sim in a poor mood will raise the likelihood of their death.

Pufferfish Nigiri, available at any Japanese food stand, is a great way to learn how to make this dish.

Death by Sunlight

Your vampire Sim should be sacrificed to the sun. The Sims 4 Vampires is a prereq.

Sunlight is deadly to vampires. They will suffer greatly and may perhaps perish as a result. If you want to get this effect, simply expose your Sim to sunlight for an extended period of time. In other words, this won’t help kids under the age of 10.

Use a cheat to put an end to your (Vampire) Sim’s life right away. Make use of the characteristics.

Pets only ever pass away from old age. When a cat or dog reaches old age, there isn’t much time left to spend with it.

Although I grieve for the loss of my beloved dogs, I must admit that their spectral counterparts are beautiful.

You can become a ghost in an instant if you use a cheat to kill your pet.

To obtain the pet’s ID, enter the following into the console: sims.get sim id by sims.get_sim_id_by_name {PlayedPetFirstName} {PlayedPetLastName}. You can now complete this cheat’s attributes after obtaining the ID.

Use the command traits.equip_trait Ghost_OldAge {Pet ID} to transform your animal companion into a ghost right away. This hack is useful for both younger and older dogs.

Spirit-like, they’ll always look the same age. An Ambrosia Treat can be used to bring back a beloved fluffy family member who has passed on.

Death by Poison

The Sims 4: Jungle Adventure is required for a slow death from poisoning.

Your Sim may become poisoned if you send them into the forest. This may occur if you are stung by a spider, stung by a swarm of bees, stung by a scorpion, exposed to poison gas, or if you open a treasure box containing poison.

Find a Pile of Bones in the temple and use it to heal your Sim. Ask any citizen of the town for an antidote in exchange for the Pile of Bones.

Death by Freezing

Speed things up by using the ‘Cool Down Sim’ interaction or by getting your Sim wet from the Swimming Pool, throwing water balloons at them, or by using a Ghost who perished from freezing to death. The other live Sim will become very chilly very quickly.

This illness has three distinct phases over the course of three days. In stage 3, additional Sims within close proximity to your Sim will be infected quickly.

A computer search for information on rabies in rodents is essential if you want to find a treatment. Having finished the necessary investigation, your Sim may now place an order for a cure.

To prevent the spread of rabies, use this shortcut.
