    the best thing to do on fungus is to do the spore bursts as much as you can and after each one, devolve it and you get 2 points back, and it doesnt take back the infected country

    Every single bio brutal method I’ve read online doesn’t work. It must be a bug I get about 60 worth of DNA points for the first 5 minutes then I’m left with two as the cure jus shoots up. Give me a chance. No tactics to this game just luck on scenarios. Rubbish

    good but if you are on a higher difficulty than casual then you will also need drug resistance and genetic reshuffle and that other stuff or they will find a cure

    This method has worked on everything except for the virus and the last two I haven’t tested this method out yet, so here it is trust me it works I’m not lying

    1. Start your disease in china
    2. Make sure you don’t have any symptoms and devolve any that the disease mutates by itself as that will lead to people fining out about the disease
    3. upgrade air and water a couple of times and every other type of transmission twice
    4. Wait for everybody to be infected then go crazy with buying symptoms, I recommend total organ failure first then throw in tumors. THIS IS IMPORTANT WAIT UNTIL YOU HAVE AT LEAST 50 POINTS BEFORE GOING ON A BUYING SPREE this method is tried and tested belive me it works

    what i do is start off in brazil, and i get a little heat resistance. I evolve the air and water transmission COMPLETELY, and do the same with drug resistance. Then i wait. I dont evolve ANY symptoms, therefore the disease stays under the radar. After i infect every last person (dont trust the circle graph, a message will pop up saying the last healthy person was infected) i start evolving symptoms. I start with coughing and insomnia. Then i evolve those into pneumonia and paranoia. After a few rounds of evolving, you should have total organ failure and insanity. All you gotta do now is sit back and watch the death rate go through the roof.

    If a twelve year old figured it out, so can you. Good luck! ^-^

    On bio weapon, some of the first points should go to build up the gene compression traits, all three levels. Then build up the Deactivate modified gene. Or you can build them up by alternating between the traits. When bio a weapon gets too lethal, research/cure kicks in.
    Wow you are doing this, spread the bio weapon with air, water, cold, etc. Might want to hit Nucleic acid neutalization once or twice while still cheap. When all three traits are maxed out, you get the Annihilate Gene.
    Trick is to get everyone, or near everyone infected, then drop the hammer with Annihilate.

    Ok so I have made it through the entire game on brutal. Best tactic I found was to start in China and spread by birds/rats/livestock and build immunity at the same time. Let everyone get infected. Once this is done work your way down through the center starting with the lungs all the way to the middle to total organ failure. (the most effective and fastest way to kill.) as you wait for the infection to spread make sure you devolve any symptoms that evolve. On all types of diseases excluding one you will receive 2 DNA points back.

    Now that I have shared some helpful tips, can someone help me with getting the USA to nuke both China and Russia and infecting astronauts and blood transfusion.

    Thanks and good luck!

    How do I beat plaque inc on normal on the bacteria disease

      Start in uk for bacteria it’s slow at first then upgrade drug resistance. When the olimpics happen a lot of people get infected. Do not invest in symptoms until it says no more Heathy country. Then get total organ failer. Resuffel DNA at 50%. Then sit back and watch.

    One of the great things about the game is that it can be quite challenging to begin with. The first thing one needs to learn and understand are the three measures of the disease: infectivity, severity and lethality. One simple strategy is to invest almost exclusively in infectivity and then gradually switch to severity while fending off those pesky scientists. I put together an encyclopedia of the symptoms to help you.

          For virus, don’t delevel. Just don’t upgrade anything and spend your points on infectivity at first. When people start dying, then you do resistance. Then near the end you can buy symptoms that make it harder to cure like insanity.

    Best way to beat ANY LEVEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    1. start off in china
    2.upgrade your transmissions at least once
    3 while you upgrade DON’T LET YOUR SYMPTOMS UPGRADE BY THEMSELVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    4. upgrade your cold, heat, and drug resistance at least once if not twice on the drug resistance
    5. sit back until EVERYONE IS INFECTED!!!!!!! collect DNA along the way
    6. once you have about 100 DNA upgrade 2 i say again 2 of your symptoms to their max lethality
    7. you should win with in a few days on the game

    this works for any level

      I do the same, but I start in an rich, urban area with air and sea ports (Italy). It won’t get more the 3 people infected, so the game through a Ton of Orange bubbles, which I think maxes at 25-30. It’s just more DNA points in the long run.

    Okay so I’m sick and tired of trying to beat bio weapon on brutal. I destroyed the world so quickly with every plague but bio weapon. I’ve played it like 15 times just today. I would get HELLA close to infecting everybody only to have the cure skyrocket and make me lose. If this game was not on my phone. I’d break it -____- so help me out for the love of god I need a detailed strategy because this is bs! I’ve done so many. Where I invest all in cure. All in bio weapon specialist. All in things to spread it. And mixed all of those together in different ways. You know how frustrating it is to see people being infected so quickly that you get all excited because you think you’re gonna beat the cure only to end up with 4 DNA points for 8 minutes straight and lose? -___- please someone help me!

      For the virus, I start in either china, or south america. Chinas massive population will make it spread fast, but you have to get wind and water to spread it. i dont upgrade them past one, but blood is most effective with aneamia and hemeoraphilia, and it works great in china, south america, central america, and africa. i came close a few times before i figured it out, but with the virus you have to make sure your infection rate remains higher than your death rate, at least until the end.

    Strongly recommend Greenland for most Plagues. The later ones (Nano/Bio) recommend Egypt or Saudi Arabia. I have beaten all levels on Brutal. Invest early in water 1/2 then air 1/2 and then the combined. If you started in Greenland, invest in Blood 1 to take out Africa. Dont worry about being fast. De-evolve every sinlgle symptom mutation until everyone is infected. If you dont blow your points you should easily have plenty of points by the time everyone is infected. If you have done this correctly, everyone should be infected and no one has noticed. De-evolve all the “transmission”- everyone is infected- so it does no good. Rapidly blow all your points on symptoms- no need to worry about drug resistance or protect from the cure. If you select multiple top tier symptoms everyone will die far too fast for it to even be needed. Once you figure out the pattern- the game is pretty boring. Some of the later Plauges change these rules slightly- but not by much.

    Hope this helps

      I’m in the same boat as the other guy. For whatever reason I have about three countries that the infection rate slows to zero and no one new is getting infected so I don’t have 100%. Then I try to make it more infectious and I get discovered and lose. I am only on normal bacteria…

    No. That means you killed all the infected people before the disease could spread. You have to make sure you don’t make it too deadly until the whole planet is infected or you’ll die out like disco fever.

      That means that the pathogen killed all of it’s hosts, which means that it can’t infect anymore people. You need to infect, then kill every single person in the world to win it. It’s about finding the balance between Infectivity and Lethality! Severity will either slow down or speed up bot infectivity and lethality!

      I had trouble with this type of ‘plague’ as well. You need to start in Iceland as it has both a harbor and an airport. Invest in both heat resistant and cold resistant evolutions on the abilities tab, this will allow the pathogen to spread all over the world and survive (once you have enough DNA points you can upgrade to level 2). Then you’ll want to invest in water and air transmissions, as well as cattle and birds. I didn’t apply ONE SINGLE SYMPTOM until every single person on the planet was infected, this way you can stay under the radar and away from the cure. Once you have enough points to create lethality in your pathogen I would recommend you do ‘Total Organ Failure’. Once people start dying you will gain more DNA points and you can use that to effectively slow and prevent the cure. Genetic Reshuffle is the most effective way of doing this when combined with the Genetic Hardening abilities. Good luck.

          Start in Saudi Arabia first. Get cold resistent 2 (no heat). Then devolve all mutations. Air and water trans. to 2 (not max). Wait for everyone to be infected and gain 45 DNA points. Get symptoms coughing, pemonia, and get total organ faliure. Wait for eveyone to die. Works with ALL plagues and difficulties! 😉
