Obviously single player renders several of the event cards moot but how about loot? I know the negative effect of gold bars is not triggered in single player, but how about the Bust?

Bust is a loot which makes the player unable to use tools for the rest of the game.

If you draw this card in multi-player it's an inconvenience but not a game stopper. You can pass your tools over to other players.

In single player; tools are eliminated for the rest of the game. Additionally, there's no mechanism to drop those unwanted/ useless tools so you still trigger alarms with them.

I'd say you aren't using tools any more. A sad turn of events, but it's not impossible. I've played plenty of games where I didn't use any tools anyway.

Loot sets off alarms in the same places that tools do, so if you're carrying the Bust, it doesn't matter if you also have tools in your pocket; the alarm will be set off regardless.

The bust is definitely a bit frustrating in a single player game. I have learnt to be pretty fast and loose with the tools when playing with just one character. Perhaps a variant for the bust that would be more fun with a single character would be that it now takes 2 or 3 actions to use any tools.

I think there are more painful loot you can get when just playing one character. The mirror (which limits you to 3 actions) I find to be the most painful. I have also been trying to beat the obelisk heist (5 floors of 3x3 tiles) on the burgle bros app with a single character and I find I just have to give up if I ever get the tiara (or whichever loot it is that results in you being seen from adjacent tiles when moving).
