How to Beat Plague Inc. Prion on Normal

Updated on March 6, 2016

Beating Prion on Normal

This tutorial, while similar to the Virus tutorial I posted, is a little different in the way you go about the game. Please make sure you read the steps carefully and follow them to a T. If you have come this far, you probably know the game pretty well now. Let's get this started!

First things first: you are allowing symptoms to mutate.

  1. Start your virus in South Africa.
  2. Build DNA points to 50.
  3. Get Air Resistance 1.
  4. Get Air Resistance 2.
  5. Get Water Resistance 1.
  6. Get Blood 1.
  7. Build DNA Points to 50.
  8. Get Water Resistance 2.
  9. Get Drug Resistance 1.
  10. Get Heat Resistance 1.
  11. Get Cold Resistance 1.
  12. Build DNA Points to 100.
  13. Get Drug Resistance 2.
  14. Get Heat Resistance 2.
  15. Get Cold Resistance 2.
  16. Get Genetic Hardening 1.
  17. Build your points to 100 or until everyone is infected.
  18. Once you have either reached 100 points or everyone is infected, put points into symptoms leading to Total Organ Failure. Spend your remaining points into anything else that is lethal. Don't worry about the cure. However, if you want you can spend any additional points to slow the cure for a higher score.

Update to Tutorial

I have noticed there being a change in the current tutorial as it stands.

All you have to do is put your additional points into genetic reshuffle 1 and genetic reshuffle 2 to prevent the cure from going 100%

        Yes, I'm the same person that wrote yesterday. I followed your instructions again and again and, after 4 times I finally made it. Everyone was dead and research stopped at 90%.

        I guess that the game's IA may be more complex and also adapt to what the player does.

        I've followed all your walkthroughs to the T and some may take a few times to work but they do. Also I'd like to thank you for all your hard work.

        Going to nano now! Bye!

        followed these instructions perfectly and the cure beat me. it went down when i added more symptoms but by then the disease was killing people faster than it infected them. also the mutated symptoms alerted people who closed borders which generally made it harder, and iceland had a low infection rate so they executed the infected and closed their borders which meant i couldn't win. it is not due to people not following these steps, it is down to many variables that cannot be foreseen in individual gameplay. this tutorial will work for some and not for others, unfortunately i was not one of the lucky ones.

        Thanks for your hard work. I must be missing something. I can't seem to win. The cure is always reached so quickly once I get to total organ failure. People just aren't dying very fast. I'll give it another go

        For people saying it didn't work and that you followed it to a T obviously you didn't. She has worked hard on these tutorials and doesn't deserve the bullshit i see in the comments. If you followed her steps to the letter, then it should work. I have used her tutorials for the past hour and have gotten all the way up to this disease with her help and i kept dying for days stuck at the Bacteria level. So obviously you didn't follow instructions therefore it isnt her fault

        for those who lose, I beat it at 99% left to cure it, after you use Genetic reshuffles, make sure to devolve transmissions and abilities and put towards symptoms like Coma and Insanity (To the left) that slows down progress, then just pray that the leading nation of the cure dies out. Hope this helps

        I followed to a T and was defeated twice at the last minute. The most DNA points I can get after step 16 is 71 and then it outright stops. Devolved all symptoms and abilities to fight the cure, which takes less than a minute to reach 100%. Ive lost to this level a total of 9 times now. :(

        On the normal prion I found that I had to devolve symptoms to escape detection. I reached 98% world infection before new disease was receiving attention. Once I got 100% your advice of ramping up symptoms to kill and genetic reshuffling worked like a charm.

      • profile image

        Gravy 7 months ago

        Barely worked, however did in the end! I had to take some extra action to defend against the cure though, like devolving certain transmissions and abilities, and evolving the Prion's special ability at the beginning, along with adding extra lethal symptoms, but it worked!

        This doesn't work. I tried it about 5 times before going to a new walkthrough that told me to devolve symptoms as they come and focus on transmission + cold res, where as yours says to allow symptoms. Once everyone was infected the cure hadn't even started. So then I evolved symptoms to total organ failure and as more points came in (plus I devolved transmissions for more points since everyone was ill already) I used them to fight the cure. Once the symptoms start, the cure starts and it's very fast. I was BARELY able to complete it this way, but did. 93% cure when I finished.

        Even with your update this still doesn't work. I eradicated 97% of the world but the cure saved the last 3%. Would love to know if anyone has completed this one or if they've broken it with the recent tweaks? I just want to move on...

        First guide that I've looked at that actually hasn't worked at all.

        Following it to the letter results in less than a quarter of the total population dead and 100% cured.

        Not allowing symptoms to mutate results in half the amount of people dead but still 100% cured.

        Doesn't really work if you follow this guide at all.

        Air Resistance?

      • profile image

        Fox Gaming 11 months ago

        @Stuqid Water Resistance is for Boats becoming immune to your virus (As the game describes it, getting new air filters) and Air Resistance is the same, but for Airplanes. The Resistances are for two things (That I've noticed.) 1. Allowing Boats and Airplanes to become infected again after getting new air filters, and 2. Increasing chance of Airplanes and Boats to become infected.

        just going to give some advice here guys, i tried this as written, and even with genetic reshuffle 1, 2 and 3 it didnt work, so i tried again, this time ignoring the "allow symptoms to mutate" and devolved them just like with bacteria and it has worked. aside from that change, i used the tutorial as written.

        That said, ive only tried it once, so whether or not this is a reliable method, i cant say.

        What is Water and Air Resistance?

      • profile image

        Clark Kim 15 months ago

        Just finished. 1st thing is 1st. You need to follow the stratagy exactly till step 16. (Except, one, you might want to try livestock, instead of blood. Two, step 14 wouldn't be necessary for you to spread infection further in hot climate regions. Three, do not allow any symptoms during the infection.)

        Now, here are several essential points.

        1. Confirm the every single one in the world is infected.

        2. Start retrieving DNA points from Abilities (Heat/Cold resistance) and Transmission (Air/Water/Livestock)

        3. Begin developing symptoms till total organ failure first!

        (Also, at this point, you can now allow the symptoms to be developed)

        4. Concentrate on investing DNA points in Abilities (Drug resistance/Genetic Hardening/Genetic Reshuffle, these 3 factors have to be maxed out!)

        5. If possible, coma also would be greatly helpful to prevent reaching cure 100%.

        At the end, the result were the cure development 83% and wipe out in 1506 days.

        Wish you luck!!

        I followed this walkthrough EXACTLY as written. I've used several other of these and they worked very well. This one just completely allowed the cure to be completed and didn't stop it. I lost with only half a billion people dead and the cure just stopped the disease in its tracks and easily caused me to lose. Please add something for cure prevention!!!!

        I finished in 597 days and the cure was only at 43%

        It is common sense after total organ failure. Just keep saving up for genetic reshuffles. And evolve deadly symptoms (increase the amount of daily deaths).

        When the humans started to "cure" my disease (Raggmunk) I got the Neural atrophy 1 and 2 plus Genetic hardening 2 just to slow the cure down which (probably) saved me. ended up winning with the cure at 73% (in addition to these abillities, I used 2 reshuffles) Hopefully you can test this and find it useful (at least to some extent)

        I followed this a few times but had no success, so I followed the same plan I did for bacteria and just managed to squeak by with completion at 1381 days and the cure at 94%. I devolved all mutations until there were no healthy people left and then dumped points into symptoms to get to TOF. Then I used any remaining points on genetic reshuffles and hardening. Thanks for the pointers though

        I beat the game at 78% cure. I only evolved up to : Air 2, Water 2, Heat Resistance 2, and Cold Resistance 2. Then I evolved ONLY cough and sneezing just to infect everyone. The disease was noticed but the cure progress slowly.

        I waited and collected DNA points up to 150 then I evolved symptoms up to TOF, Coma, and Paralysis.

        Then you must evolve up to Neural Atrophy 3. Trust me, this slows down the cure progress as it affects the brain of the researchers.

        Lastly I work my way up to evolving Genetic Reshuffle 2.

        Game is finished and a success.

        Shinobigarth 20 months ago

        works, but you HAVE to devolve all transmission stuff (including the abilities that deal with infectivity) once everyone is sick, and stay on top of the cure at the end, getting Genetic Reshuffles as soon as you can. basically at the end put everything into Reshuffles, TOF, Coma, Paralysis and i did Seizures also. devolve everything else including the symptoms used to get to TOF, Coma, etc to give you more points for the Reshuffles.

        worth noting i also had the one gene mod that gives you 4 points for a devolve, and i just barely made it, so i almost feel like that mod is pretty necessary.

        @chuck - as someone who has followed every detail to a T and still failed, I feel compelled to say that in a game like Plague which is so full of and so dependent upon variables and endless permutations, it doesn't really matter what strategy you follow or how closely you adhere to it - there will always be the possibility of undesirable outcomes. Just like in real life. This is certainly not a knock on the author's strategies. I am very grateful for his input and help as well as those here who also have offered their variations and walkthrus in the comments.

        First and foremost Devolve all Symptoms

        Follow the first 11 steps in the tutorial except when you get to step 6 use Livestock 1 not blood 1 since the biggest disaster that came from Prion was Mad Cow Disease.

        Use Cold Resistance 2 to completely infect the world and in the process while you wait build up your points you will need them.

        Once the world is totally infected start adding Symptoms starting with Insomnia and working your way up the middle to Organ Failure. Add remaining points to Bird 1.

        The Cure will rise however as your points build add them to Genetic Reshuffle 1,2,and 3 by this time the Cure will stop and the world will be 90% dead. I hope this help and have fun wiping out the world you sick individuals

        I DID IT

        AFTER SIXTEEN TRIES I DID IT

        I used the guide, and that didnt work AT ALL

        So, I did it this way

        Drug Resist 1 and 2, Genetic Hardening 1 and 2

        Devolved all mutations as they came

        Air 1 and 2, Water 1 and 2, Extreme Bioaresol

        Birds 1 and 2, rats 1

        Cold 1 and 2, heat 1

        Neural Atrophy 1 and 2

        As soon as everyone was infected, and I was at about 107 DNA points, I went in and put in Coughing, Sneezing, Immune Suppression, and Total Organ Failure.

        I devolved all my transmissions and the heat and cold.

        I ramped up my Genetic Reshuffle 1-3

        Cure is still 79%

        And the world is dyiiiiinnnngggggg!

        Followed this exactly. I found that the cure was quickening which seemed to be a common issue and I didn't have enough for Genetic Reshuffle 2 so then I devolved my Heat, Cold, Blood, Air, Water and received 2 DNA points for each that helped me with the Reshuffle. The DNA points automatically rose and within seconds I had enough points to keep assigning symptoms and then eventually the cure stopped at 83%.

        This didn't work for me. I read the comments before starting my first playthrough of prion, and seeing as how so many people found that this tutorial didn't work out for them, I opted to devolve any symptom mutations until all of my countries were infected, so that I would have a head start once it got noticed. Aside from that, I followed the tutorial "to the T" and even though everyone was infected by the time I evolved total organ failure, the cure still beat me before I managed to kill off more than almost 1/3 of the world population.

        I love your tutorials and this is the only one that hasn't worked for me thus far. Perhaps you should revamp it entirely seeing as how so many people found that it did not work for them? Regardless thank you for your helpful posts!

        Following this exactly literally only allowed me to kill about 500 million people, maximum. Otherwise, cure would be able to surface before then.

        Treat the disease as a Bacteria not as a virus. It will help. Or Simply don't let the symptons mutate.No need to go to Heat Resistance 2, keep it at 1,but get the cold resistance at 2. Use Rodents instead of Blood.

        i had to change this to make it work, but good baseline i guess (I won with 96% cure and no more genetic reshuffles, immensely close game, the cure had actually gotten to 99% when i was able to reshuffle lol)

        I had almost all symptoms and the cure hadn't even started but it still caught up in the end. This is a bad tutorial.

        Start in egypt- 2 port 1 airport

        Get heat resistance 1, then drug reaistance 1 (egypt will spread to saudi, S.africa, US, and Spain/UK) then get cold resistance. At the same time get water and air transmission only. Dont use any others since its detectable. Devolved any symptom mutated. Do not let any sympton exist until all people are infected. Depending on ur game, change the peiority slightly whether to increase the defend(ability) or straight kill (symptoms) but make sure if u ever choose to expose ur desease, make sure u have enough point to go straight to organ failure. Thats how i played. Took me 2020 but it was easy.

        I hope you guys figure it out for yourself. This guide is misguiding. You cant really win with this. I follow it partiolly and add some minor modifications.

        1. Start in India

        2. Dont take Heat res 2 (its useless)

        3. Take Roden instead to speed up EU and US spread

        4. For more fatality I add Internal Haemorrhaging

        5. Use all your spare points to slow cure

        I manage to win it this way. Cure get to 91 but able to slow it down.

        Hope this will help.

        Good luck exterminating humanity :)

        I was followed this to the teeth. But every time it goes to slow. I got every single symptom at once before the cure even started and it still caught up and one

        It didn't work for me. I tried it like 10 times. I follow the instructions exactly, but it does not give me DNA points fast enough.

        Thanks for your guide! I followed exactly and I finally beat it, but had to use a few tweaks. Even following everything exactly the cure progress got up to 93% before I took further action. After your steps I devolved Water/Air 2, Blood 1, and a few of the symptoms not leading to total organ failure. I also had to end up buying all 3 of the Prior special abilities, this knocked the cure rate back to 83% and gave the disease enough time to finish off the planet.

        I have been trying this way for the past few days, tons of games later, I still keep losing. I even tried hiding the symptoms by not letting them evolve.
