About Studying Opponents in the Athlete Career

The athlete career isn’t the most complicated one in Sims 4. It allows your Sim to become a professional sportsman and make money by competing in different sports. There aren’t too many things to do except to work on your body and hit the gym daily, but some tasks can be more problematic than others. For example, many simmers don’t know how to study opponents in Sims 4.

Completing tasks such as this will help you increase your rank and advance further in the athlete career. Now, keep in mind that the athlete career has 2 branches and only 1 of them requires you to study your opponents. 

In other words, when you reach rank 4 of the athlete career (Dream Team Captain) you’ll be able to choose one of the following branches:

  • Bodybuilder
  • Professional Athlete

If you choose to become a bodybuilder in Sims, the game won’t require you to study your opponents. You’ll just need to keep working on your body. But if you choose the latter, the professional athlete, then you’ll have to study your opponents once in a while. 

And so, if you want your Sim to pursue this career but you don’t want to bother with studying opponents, then go for the bodybuilder branch. But if you want to become a professional athlete and learn how to study opponents in Sims 4, this is what you need to know!

How to Study Opponents in Sims 4?

Studying opponents in Sims 4 is actually pretty easy. There are 2 ways to do this – studying your opponents through the TV and studying your opponents through the PC. Here’s how to do both!

How to study your opponents using the TV?

  1. Go to any TV in your home and turn it on.
  2. Select the special button “Study Opponents”.
  3. Wait for the interaction to end and your task will be completed.

How to study your opponents using the PC?

  1. Go to your PC and turn it on.
  2. Search the “Web” category.
  3. Choose to “Study Opponents”.
  4. Wait for the interaction to end fully if you want to complete the task.

How should you study your opponents in Sims 4?

There’s actually no difference whether you study your opponents through the PC or the TV. It all comes down to your personal preference and efficiency. If you want to complete the task as soon as possible, use what’s nearest to you.

As a bonus tip, you can put a TV next to the treadmill in your gym. Then you can study opponents while you’re working out. This will save you some time and alleviate the boredom of waiting for the interaction to finish.

Here’s a list of all career options in Sims 4!


I hope I helped you learn how to study opponents in Sims 4. Studying opponents helps you earn your career promotions faster which also allows you to make more money. It can be difficult for new simmers to find this interaction in the game, but now you know what to look for! Use your TV or PC anytime you need to study your opponents and you’ll be fine!
