The Sims 4 Criminal Career

Rewards for Bosses and Oracles

The Sims 4 Criminal Career - Boss or Oracle?
The Criminal Career Track offers the Oracle and Boss Branches

The Sims 4's Criminal Career Rewards your Sim for being bad. You will either choose to become a Crime Boss, being a leader of a gang, or follow the Oracle Branch to delve deeper into Hacking and internet crimes. The best Traits differ, but the best Aspiration is either Public Enemy or Chief of Mischief - both of these give the Dastardly Bonus Trait, which helps immensely with Mischief interactions for getting started in the Career.

How to: Criminal Career Cheats
Press Control + Shift + C then type testingcheats on and press enter. You can now get promotions with careers.promote criminal - you can also see all Career Cheats or visit a full list of Cheats in The Sims 4.

The Ideal Mood for the early levels of the Criminal Career is Playful.

Criminal Job Levels and Career Unlocks

Perhaps the best way to level the Mischief Skill is to get to Level 2 and Troll teh Forums. This provides steady gains, as opposed to using the interactions on other Sims. Decide which branch you'll pursue early, and you may get to start working on the required Skills before you reach the branch.

Boss Career

The Search for Bank Blueprints ability, unlocked at level 9 and found under Web on the Computer, will increase your Sim's Mischief Skill and give a +1 Inspired Moodlet for 2 Days. The good thing about this is it's an easy way to level Mischief while at home without making enemies of your Family. I suppose it's possible that it helps the likelihood of something like a bank heist opportunity happening while at work, but have not experienced this myself. Do let us know on the Forum's Suggestions board if you discover the main use of this ability.

All the rewards you get for this Career give off a Playful Emotional Aura, yet the Ideal Mood for the Boss Career is Focused. Using a Woodworking Table is one of the best ways to level your Sim's Handiness Skill.

The Boss Branch Rewards include a Punching Bag and a variety of Decor

Oracle Career

Oracle career rewards in Sims 4
The Oracle Career Rewards include a great Computer and neat Spy Satellite for a Wall.

The Oracle Career will have your Sim focusing on Hacking, heavily, as well as making Viruses on the Computer. You still need to work on Mischief here, but Oracles are nowhere near as mean as Bosses. Genius is an excellent Trait for this Career, as the Sim will be more likely to get Focused for work - you can also browse Simpedia on the Computer - and later Hack Mainframe - to get a Focused Buff.

This Career unlocks the ability to Hack Mainframe, along with one of the best Computers in the game - although it's not Unbreakable, it has a very high Fun rating and reliability of 8. Hack Mainframe will make your Sim Focused, but also make Hacking more profitable when it's successful. This makes the career something you'll want to pursue if you want to make money while Hacking. The Patched In buff lasts a full 8 hours, so you can do this and make a gob of money hacking the various Servers with the Programming Skill.

All the rewards you get for this Career give off a Playful Emotional Aura, although the Ideal Mood for the Oracle Career is Focused.

It is in interaction on the computer once your sim has leveled up in the programming skill. Get your sim in a focused mood (ponder chess moves on a chess board) and then 'practice programming' on a computer to skill up the Programming Skill.

Will your sims be put in jail in this Career?

Playlotsays...
No. Nothing like that happens in TS4. Your sims walk to the edge of their lot and then disappear when they go to work. They then reappear in the same spot when their work shift is finished. Sometimes they get 'Chance Card' text opportunities where you will get to chose a response by clicking on one of the choices. At the best their career performance may get a tiny bump, at the worst nothing happens.

Yes, but not huge amounts of money. Maybe a few hundred simoleons if your sim is lucky, usually less. Have at least a good friendship level with the target sim before pick pocketing.
