Aerocyte is a gene available for the standard plagues , in addition to the Neurax Worm, Necroa Virus, Simian Flu and Shadow Plague DLCs. This gene mainly helps the plague to spread better through airplanes.
- This gene is quite useful in scenarios where people mainly travel in airplanes, such as the Pirate Plague and the Flight Club Scenario.
- If the plague starts in Saudi Arabia with this gene, the infection to other countries will accelerate due to constant flights.
- The American video game magazine, TouchArcade, recommends using this gene to obtain the achievement "Not Another Zombie Game" (NAZG).
