Gene Farming Strategy [REVISED]

blogger This guide is to get all of the normal genes in the quickest way possible. So, with some feedback from username: "mace", I decided to turn Spicy's Mega Brutal Strategy into Casual to get 210 - 300 Days for a quick game.

DISCLAIMER:You can't get 2 genes in 1 game, so you'll have to go through many games to unlock these genes. Genes can help you with other strategies quicker.

Edits that can make the strategy better are currently:

  • Air 1 & 2
That's it so far, post in the comments below any suggestions.

Start: Bacteria on Casual

Genes: To do this quicker, use these genes once you unlock them.
ATP Boost (Tier 1 in its category)
Aquacyte (Tier 3 in its category)
Sympto-Stasis (Tier 3 in its category)
Genetic Mimic (Tier 3 in its category)
Extremeophile (Tier 5 in its category)

Step 1: Start in China

Step 2: Evolve Water 1 and Insect 1

Step 3: Evolve Symptoms in the order I list:

  • Nausea                                                                  PEOPLE MIGHT START DYING, GO THROUGH WITH 
  • Coughing                                                               THE PLAN.
  • Rash
  • Cysts
  • Anaemia
  • Vomiting
  • Pneumonia
  • Sneezing
  • Sweating
  • Hyper Sensitivity
  • Abscesses
  • Haemophilia                

  • Step 4: Evolve Water 2 and Insect 2

    Step 5: Get these symptoms
    • Diarrhea
    • Pulmonary Oedema
    • Skin Lesions

    Step 6: Evolve these Symptoms
    • Drug Resistance 1
    • Bacterial Resilience 1, 2, and 3
    • Drug Resistance 2
    • Genetic Hardening 1 and 2

    Step 7: Evolve these Symptoms
    • Insomnia
    • Paranoia
    • Seizures
    • Insanity
    • Paralysis
    • Coma
    • Necrosis
    • Dysentery

    Step 8: Wait for everyone to be infected, pop any last bubbles and use Genetic Reshuffles to keep your cure down.

    Step 9: Wait for the "No one left in the world is healthy" Pop up, and wipe out the earth. By this time you  probably killed off most of it. Evolve lethal symptoms, by this time, I evolved all symptoms.

    Stats: 345 Days
               3 Biohazards
               14% Cure

    Thanks for reading! Post in the comments below any edits to this strategy!


    1. If you play for farming purpose, the main target is to finish as fast as possible. I think that 600+ days then is way too long.
      Try to use Spicy's guide for mega-brutal difficulty in casual mode - and you should be able to finish in about 290 to 310 days, which is about half of the time.
      Use the genes that are discribed there as soon as you unlocked them, but of course you can use other genes (especially those increasing DNA) if you unlock them first.

    2. Will do, thanks for the feed back.
