Infection – Human Race Extinction is a game that mostly looks and feels just like Plague Inc. The advantage of this game, however, is that it’s free to play, does a really good job at being challenging and addictive and is not plagued by IAPs or ads. We are here to check out some Infection cheats: tips, tricks and basically a guide on what to do in order to win the game on every difficulty level and then do it over and over again.
So let’s destroy the population of the globe together with these Infection – Human Race Extinction cheats and tips to win easily!
1. Transmission first, Resistances second
Your main goal is to infect as many people as possible first, without raising the eyebrows of the scientists. It is completely possible to infect the whole population of the globe without the cure starting – so invest in Transmission traits first. The game can be completely won with only Water and Air transmissions evolved, so don’t invest too much, you will need the points later.
Then, invest in resistances, most important Gene Obfuscation and Natural Complexity. You want the research to go as slow as possible so that your disease has enough time to destroy everything around.
2. Go lethal fast after evolving the first symptom
As soon as you have the entire population infected, evolve the first symptoms (one gets the disease notices, two or more start the cure process). The idea is to start this when you have already some DNA points saved – I would suggest nothing less than 20. The idea is to turn your disease into the most lethal one possible as fast as possible, so having 20 points to start with will help a lot. Start with the Coughing and Perspiration symptoms, as they lead to some highly lethal traits and are relatively cheap.
Playing the game on Easy makes it, obviously, easier to win. It also helps you unlock most of the Evolutions that give you a ton of bonuses in future games. So get all the possible evolutions with the game on Easy, and only then move to other difficulty settings, with the extra boosts from Evolutions.
4. What evolutions to use
There are 10 Evolutions and you can only use five. My suggestion would be to use the following: Migrant, Cysts, Foreigners, Lethality Boost and Foreigners (or Reactive, but it’s harder to get).
5. Where to start
Just like in Plague Inc, Madagascar and Greenland are the most difficult countries to infect, so starting in one of them (I’d go for Madagascar) makes it a lot easier. But in the end, keeping the disease silent and waiting for the whole world to get infected will make any country a good pick for starting the game.
6. Pop those bubbles!
No matter that it’s the red or orange DNA bubbles or the blue ones (research), you should always pop them all in order to get as many DNA points to spend as possible. The more you have, the better your disease and the easier for you to win the game.
With just a bit of planning and using the tips and tricks that I shared with you above, it will be very easy for you to win at Infection (or Infection – Human Race Extinction if you prefer the long name) and have fun while doing so. And don’t forget to share with us any other strategies you might have.
