Plague Inc. Tips: Bacteria, Parasite, and Prion Strategies

Strategies for Bacteria, Prion, and Parasite seem to work well for each other. But why?

If you've been playing a lot of Plague Inc. games, you are bound to notice that the strategies you're using for Bacteria seem to be working well for Prion and Parasite--and vice versa.

This is because without the use of their own respective unique abilities, these plague types are basically the same. Bacteria without the use of its unique abilities is just, well, bacteria. Prion without its unique abilities is just like bacteria, but with innate cure-slowing. Parasite, again, is just like bacteria, but with the innate ability to be less severe.

To make my point shorter, Parasite and Prion are just improved versions of the Bacteria plague type. Therefore, strategies that work for Bacteria--without the use of unique abilities, of course--will work for Prion and Parasite as well.

This knowledge is particularly useful for scenarios that allow the use of multiple plague types(e.g. Artificial Organs, Created Equal, etc.).

The best possible strategy for these plague types, especially in mega-brutal, is to use the awesome symptom Necrosis to cause deaths and massive infection at the early to mid stages of the game. This is just my opinion, though, there are tons of possible strategies for each plague that could work for you. Necrosis, for me, is just really good because when it's combined with a few transmissions and resistances, it makes your plague infect fast and kill at a decent rate.

In conclusion, before you get frustrated trying out different strategies for these plague types, try using the same one. More often than not, you'll be able to replicate your score for Bacteria with Prion and Parasite.

  1. But prion has a long delay to revolutions....
    Prion takes a long time to react to new or recent evolved traits.
