Plague Inc: How to Beat Necroa Virus

If you’ve already mastered basic Viruses in Plague Inc and you’re looking for a bit more of a challenge, then you’ll want to take a look at the Necroa Virus. Here’s everything you need to know about how to beat Necroa Virus in Plague Inc.

Beating Necroa Virus in Plague Inc

As the word necroa implies, this Virus is all about using your dead victims as a means of transmitting your plague. However, the lifeless bodies don’t just sit idly by and wait for some unsuspecting schmuck to come by and pick up the disease.

No, the dead rise again and become carriers of your Necroa Virus. This is where things can start to get interesting. Even after a cure is formulated and the infected are healed, your army of zombies can still rapidly overwhelm entire nations.


Darwinist and Spliced Activation are going to be the most important genes to use for this mode. Darwinist will make your symptoms mutations explode. This may not seem like a good thing, but it’s just fine for the Necroa Virus.

That’s because we’re going to focus more on creating a bunch of dead people very quickly to form a formidable horde of zombies. Spliced Activation will help bring down the costs of abilities that will help your zombies move and overtake nations.

Zoonotic Shift is going to be huge for your Necroa Virus plague. It will let your virus mutate more freely and move about from animals to humans. Rodents, Birds and Insects are the best options here since they all cover a wide variety of environments.

It will be time to go wild once you have enough DNA for the Cytopathic Reanimation symptom or once it mutates. This is the symptom that lets you start to build up your zombie army.

At this point, you’ll want to start building up your zombie symptoms which are essentially upgrades. Enhanced Motor Control, Anabolic Boost, Bone Dysplasia and Temporal Lobe Manipulation are important symptoms to add to your undead monsters.

You’ll also want to pick up all of the ‘Horde’ Abilities that are available as soon as you can. These are Instinct, Mentality, Vocalization and Pheromones. This will allow your hordes to contain millions of zombies.

After your horde has become as dangerous as it can be all that’s left is to bring your horde on a world tour. The Drifting Fermentation ability is crucial here so your hordes can float across the seas to different islands and continents.

Also, target Z Coms with your horde as soon as possible so they don’t get too powerful. This military group will handily wipe out your horde if you let them have enough time to prepare for you in a heavily populated nation.

Time needed: 30 minutes.

Here’s a quick rundown on how to beat Necroa Virus in Plague Inc:

  1. Pick your genes

    Spliced Activation and Darwinist are your best options for this mode.

  2. Spread across the world

    Use animals to send your Necroa Virus around the globe.

  3. Raise the dead

    Cytopathic Reanimation will enable the victims of your plague to come back as zombies. Use Horde abilities and Drifting Fermentation to travel to new countries.

  4. Take the fight to the Z Coms

    This military force can become a major threat to your horde, so make sure you stop them before they get too big.

  5. Infect the World

    As you focus on Z Coms, also target uninfected nations to win the game.
