A Ribbon is awarded based on your character's lifetime. In BitLife, there are several different actions you can perform that impact what your life is like. Upon the inevitable death of your life, a grave and a ribbon will appear, telling you the stats of your life. The ribbon on the grave describes the life you've lived in one or two words. Currently, there are 40 different ribbons that you may get. When a ribbon is earned for the first time, it will be unlocked in your ribbon collection. There are 4 secret ribbons whose names and emojis are not shown until after they are unlocked however their descriptions are still known. When the app was first released, there were only 11: Academic, Fertile, Hero, Lazy, Loaded, Lustful, Mediocre, Rich, Scandalous, Unlucky, and Wasteful. As of April 2020, 10 more ribbons were added: Tarzan, Gold Digger, Monopoly, Movie Buff, Barbie Girl, Veteran, and Influencer; along with 2 new secret ribbons.

Difficulty: Easy, but timing is key

It is a jet black ribbon represented with a train emoji. To become a Bandit, the character must commit a Train Robbery at the exact time.

Procedures to get the Bandit ribbon:

  • Commit a Train Robbery
    • Do not alter the time on your device. This will result in Death by being run over by a train.
  • Do not make too much money in a career and do not gamble to make more to avoid "Successful" or "Highroller".
  • Have a net worth of under 50m to avoid "Loaded".
  • Do not start on a rich generation.
  • Only one successful robbery is necessary, making too much money robbing multiple trains can actually be counterproductive because your character could risk getting "Loaded" instead.
