Infection Bio War is a game that mostly looks, feels and plays 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 Bio War cheats: tips, tricks and basically a complete guide for what to do in order to win the game on every difficulty level and then do it over and over again.
This game made it back to the top – strangely – after the rise in popularity of the news regarding the Novel Coronavirus spread in China… but fortunately is completely safe. So let’s dig in and check out some Infection Bio War 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.
What you should do 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.
3. Play the game on easy
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.
Additional strategy by our reader Raul:
If you’re struggling to get past a level although you’ve completed the requirements, you need a high score or complete in hard mode.
I usually start with Egypt, two water traits, two cold traits and first drug resistance, which helps with Europe. That should infect the whole world. Greenland and Poland are the countries you need patience with.
Store around 70-80 DNA points once the world is affected and select the symptoms on the far right and stick to the right side selecting anything that increases your lethality. Aim to reach the top right, tissue breakdown at 27 points. You should win easily after this!
Works on nearly every level. If your meant to use animal traits stick to rats only, they spread quickly, very quickly and mix with water in other levels for speed. Don’t worry about heat and air, rats can infect hot regions easily and blood too.
Additional tips from our reader Scott, regarding infection and lethality:
For those of you who are having trouble and getting defeated after infecting the whole world, I can tell you why… just because you have all the countries in the world infected, it doesn’t mean every single person in those countries is infected.
If you evolve all the symptoms very quickly and the disease is highly lethal, sometimes all the infected people die before the uninfected have time to catch the disease. If you have too high of a lethal to infective ratio, you will always lose because there will be a few survivors who don’t get the disease before all the infected die thus leaving no one left to spread the disease.
The way to prevent that is either wait till every single person in the world is infected or leave out some of the more leathal traits so that the people don’t die as fast before having time to spread the disease.
You can keep track of the rate that people are dying by watching the infection bar. If it turns completely from yellow to red (signifying all the infected have died) before the blue (the uninfected) is completely gone, there will be survivors.
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 Bio War 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.
