How To Study Opponents In Sims 4?


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!
