The following are strategies and tips for the Don't Ask Me achievement. Feel free to add your own below:
- Start Necroa Virus on Casual difficulty
- Start in the UK.
- Evolve Saliva 1 and Segmented Genome in under 60 days.
- The PfiGlax popup should appear. If not, try again.
- Do nothing and save DNA Points. If a symptom mutates, only devolve up to two of them if only a few countries are infected.
- After another symptom mutates, wait, and when the cure is at 60%, evolve Insomnia, Fever, Photophobia, Delirium and Cytopathic Reanimation.
- Don't evolve anything except Zombie abilities, and only if some countries aren't infected or having Z Com troubles.
- Wait until this popup appears: "PfiGlax linked to Necroa Virus" If the player fails any of the following steps, they must restart the game.
- Avoid the UK Zombie population becoming over 4 million. If this happens, use Zombie Horde (Horde Pheromones is required) to move them.
- Avoid the popup "Authorities can't protect from zombies"
