Choosing the right traits can be a game-changer for a criminal career. “Dastardly” trait allows to engage in negative interactions with other Sims while the “Hot-headed” trait adds a fiery spark to the personality, resulting in epic showdowns, and cultivation of “Frenemies”. Lastly, players can equip thick skin with the “Mean” trait that will enable Sims to relish mischievous interactions without feeling bad.

The sole skill required for this career is mischief. Players can level up this skill by maximizing mischievous interactions with fellow Sims. And for those seeking adventure, they can use Voodoo Doll to master this skill.
