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!

      Worked perfectly on the first try, the cure starting straight away will worry you, but that’s only because it was man made. So don’t worry, some of the abilities listed here will bring it more than half of what it is then. When I got to over 75% lethality, the death count went from only about 7 million to 7 BILLION! Amazing, it only took over 600 days, and by the time there was 400,000 people left, the cure was going to take another 100 years to cure!

      Don't know if these comments get read but well... just wanted to say thank you for all the time and effort you put into this guide. I did have to adapt to some events and mutations, but even so, this guide made it seem like a breeze.

      It also makes me want to try similar strategies on other pathogens. Now that I see how much fun it can be to *not* take the "stealth infect everyone, evolve killswitch" approach.
