Cheat Plagues are special Plagues that don't change the symptoms, but are easier to beat. The first four can be unlocked either by beating all regular plague types on Brutal Difficulty, the next three on Mega Brutal Difficulty, or by purchasing them ($9.99). As of Mega Mutation 8, all cheats are now usable by all Plagues and can be combined. Mobile is the same (update unknown). In Plague Inc. Evolved, the first four cheats can be unlocked by beating all of the Plague types in normal difficulty, and the last three by completing all Plague types in Brutal. This includes the Neurax Worm and the Necroa Virus. This does not include the Simian Flu or Shadow Plague.

The cheat plaguesEdit

Immune StrainEdit

Although the cure is being developed, the cure never finishes.

  • The only way to lose is by killing off all carriers while there are still healthy people alive.

Hidden StrainEdit

Governments will never research cures or close borders or ports.  Like the Immune strain, the only way to lose is by killing all victims without infecting everyone first.

Unlimited StrainEdit

Grants unlimited DNA at the start of the game. Can be used to determine how to unlock symptom combos.

Turbo StrainEdit

The starting country will immediately be completely infected, making the beginning of the game very easy.

Shuffle StrainEdit

All evolutions are randomized.

Lucky Dip StrainEdit

Start the game with 5 random evolutions (Can't be devolved), and act as if they were normally purchased, and lead to adjacent traits.

Double Strain Edit

Allows the disease to start in two countries.

Notes Edit

  • You cannot get scores or most achievements when using it on gameplay.
