Plague Inc: Evolved is one of those simulations is are so realistic, that it becomes creepy. Especially when you consider the time we have gone through in the last two years and in which we are still to some extent. Yes, we have a simulator of viruses, pandemics, and similar plagues of humanity. But how do you deal with the parasite challenge in Plague Inc? Take a look at the guide below.
How to Beat Parasite in Plague Inc
The parasite is a particular problem in Plague Inc due to its high severity feature which makes it spread much faster and finding a cure slower. Also, it has the possibility of symbiosis with the infected so the severity can be lower because the individuals with the parasite in symbiosis will continue to live, but the infectivity will thus be increased. Those are problems for Cure mode, but in order to beat the Parasite challenge to infect and kill the whole world with it, for example, follow the next steps of the strategy that works well on Casual, Normal, and Brutal difficulty:
- For the Genetic Code start with: Cytochrome Surge, Darwinist, Extremophile, Teracyte, Ionised Helix.
- A place to start: West Africa
- Evolve Abilities Symbiosis 1, Symbiosis 2, and Symbiosis 3 to make it harder to find in the beginning.
- Evolve Transmissions – Make your Parasite transferable via Water 1 and 2, and via Air 1 and 2 to make it spread through the population faster.
- Evolve Abilities – Select Drug Resistance 1, Cold Resistance 1, and Cold Resistance 2 that will be needed for some more resilient countries.
- Evolve Transmission – Extreme Bioaerosol to increase spread even more.
- After this, wait a little bit, pop the bubbles on the map, devolve any symptoms, and mutate.
- Since the first spread might be a little slow, if you are impatient you can speed it by adding more means of transmission like Bird 1.
- Also, you can evolve Genetic Hardening 1 and Genetic Hardening 2, and make symptoms even deadlier.
- To make it a sure hit or use Genetic ReShuffle 1, Genetic ReShuffle 2, and Genetic ReShuffle 3 to make finding the cure less possible, while you watch the whole world getting infected and dying.
