How to Beat Plague Inc. Nano-Virus on Normal

Plague Inc.'s Nano-Virus

Plague Inc.'s Nano-Virus is a pesky little bugger. It took me two weeks to build this tutorial and I have finally done it. It is a hard level, so if you don't get it the first time, don't worry. I do apologize. I have done it twice now and used a few genetic codes this time to make it a little easier and faster. This method will work if you do the same. Good luck!

Start your Nano-Virus with the following genes:

  • Metabolic Hijack (Optional)
  • Genetic Mimic
  • Aquacyte
  • Extremophile
  • Ionised Helix

Note: This plague is kind of tough. Keep in mind firstly that you'll need to allow your symptoms except insomnia.

  1. Start your plague in Brazil.
  2. Build your DNA points to 5. Abilities: Code Fragment Interception.
  3. Build your DNA points to 10. Transmissions: Water 1; Symptoms: Cysts.
  4. Build your DNA points to 10. Abilities: Code Segment Interception; Symptoms: Abscesses.
  5. Build your DNA points to 10. Transmissions: Insect 1.
  6. Build your DNA points to 10. Abilities: Radical Elements Stabilised.
  7. Build your DNA points to 10. Abilities: Cold Resistance 1.
  8. Build your DNA points to 15. Abilities: Drug Resistance 1.
  9. Build your DNA points to 15. Transmissions: Bird 1.
  10. Build your DNA points to 25. Abilities: Encryption Breached, Genetic Hardening 1.
  11. Build your DNA points to 20. Abilities: Genetic Reshuffle 1; Symptoms: Sneezing.
  12. Build your DNA points to 30. Abilities: Cold Resistance 2.
  13. Build your DNA points to 18-20. Transmissions: Water 2.
  14. Build your DNA points to 20. Abilities: Genetic Reshuffle 2.
  15. Build your DNA points to 35. Transmissions: Insect 2; Symptoms: Fever.
  16. Build your DNA points to 60. Abilities: Genetic Reshuffle 3, Genetic Hardening 2; Symptoms: Skin Lesions.
  17. Devolve any uber deadly symptoms that may evolve until everyone is infected.
  18. Build your DNA points to 100. Symptoms: Insomnia, Paranoia, Inflammation, Paralysis.
  19. Wait until everyone is infected or very close, then use the deadliest symptoms to start murdering your people.

Be sure to like and comment. I want to know how fast you killed everyone!

About the Author

Hey guys, I'm ChillBilly aka Ashleign. I have been playing video games for more than 20 years. I enjoy a good bit of strategy style games mixed with online economies. MMOs are my specialty, but I do enjoy all kinds of games. My experience with Plague Inc. started when I picked up the game on my mobile phone. I immediately was hooked due to a long interest I have had in biology. I posted my first tutorial here on HubPages and it was so popular that I decided to make more.

I love helping people, and when I receive good comments and compliments, I feel that I have accomplished something. Please let me know what you thought of this tutorial in the comments below!

Last part was unnecessary,

But, I had a bit of struggle early game, but mid-game, DNA-points was running into my account, and just ran into evolving the whole Drug Resistance substance and then i just took the symptoms which increased infectivity, and then the whole world just took a spin, and got infected VERY quickly.

Then I just took the deadly symptoms.

Virus 22 months ago

I've tried using the ATP boost combined with photo-stasis to buy the cure abilities quickly. I was very aggressive evolving lots of infectious symptoms and using total organ failure before the world is fully infected. I've also used drug immunity and it infected Canada, Sweden, Greenland and other countries which are usually hard to infect in a few days. I've finished brutal on 442 days with 52% cure research but failed to beat mega brutal near the end because I couldn't afford evolving lethal symptoms (total organ failure had a cost of 77 DNA)

The first time I used your guide, I would've won, but freakin New Zealand was holding out on me! Almost happened the second time too, with Greenland, but I managed to make it succumb.

In the end, it was 10983 days total, with the cure research panning out around 66% or so. Thanks so much for your help!! I definitely would've been battling this for days or weeks again otherwise!

Lin 2 years ago

I did it on the first try! I might have taken longer cause I let the disease infect the remaining people for a longer time. After that I gained a lot more about 50+ DNA so I just let my disease run wild and it mutated several times too. I didn't modify the genetic code cause I don't have the full version. I took 770 days, but I'm always slower at this game anyway haha. Thank you so much for your help! Btw, I always devolve transmissions to get DNA after everyone is infected for extra symptoms. Do you do that too? It doesn't seem to have affect my killing at all.

I played it again with no starting genes and using a different strategy as posted by Felix on

Felix's general strategy is basically always start in Egypt, focus on Transmission first (only ever evolving Air and Water), evolve Coughing only, then Abilities (Cold 1+2; Drug 1) then once ALL are infected evolve Pneumonia, Pulmonary Fibrosis; Total Organ Failure. Throw in Genetic Hardening and Reshuffle as needed; and later Insomnia, Paranoia, Seizures, Insanity to stop cure research .

It's been used for all plague types on Brutal (there was no Necroa, Apes, etc back in 2012) with a few tweaks for specific plague types like Bio, Nano and Fungus.

This worked for Nano Virus however I ended up with a much lower score: 6020 so in that regard I prefer your strategy :)

Going to play BioWeapon next!
