In-game Description

Fungal spores struggle to travel long distances without special effort.


Like the previous two plague types, the Fungus plague type has all the same Transmissions, Symptoms, and Standard Abilities, as well as the same possible Genes. The disease spreads through the spores it releases which are generally poor in traveling.  Its Unique ability is Spore Burst which allows it to infect a random, uninfected country. Another ability, Spore Hardening, allows spores to ignore a good portion of climates which makes the Fungus very infectious late in the game.

Special AbilitiesEdit

  • Spore Burst (12) Releases a small amount of spores that will infect a random, uninfected country.
  • Spore Eruption (2): Releases a huge amount of spores that will infect multiple, uninfected countries.
  • Spore Hardening: Spores become more climate resilient and will continuously infect uninfected countries.



  • Cannot inherently infect other countries without carriers or Spore Burst/Eruption/Hardening abilities.
  • Relying too much on Disease spreading traits may not allow evolution of high tier symptoms. Using the gene Patho-Stasis can reduce this which makes it easier to evolve all the Spore Bursts without draining DNA Points.
  • This plague type is one of the longest plague types to beat due to how slowly it spreads even with the use of Spore Burst/Eruption/Hardening abilities.
  • Does struggle in arid countries.
