  • DNA Points is the plague's "currency", which is required to evolve.
  • It is earned by infecting/killing people and popping bubbles, Cure bubbles are an exception unless Catalytic Switch is active.
  • You can sometimes gain points for devolving.
  • For each trait that has been purchased, the cost to evolve traits increases by 1 in a section
  • The cost to evolve traits will increase over time in Mega Brutal, even if there are no traits evolved because Genetic drift impacts evolution. The gene Sympto-Stasis neutralizes this effect at the cost of being cured easier.
  • If the Unlimited Strain cheat is enabled, you will have infinite DNA points when you start the game.
  • DNA income can be increased with certain genes as listed below and some genes will either increase or decrease the DNA costs of Abilities, Symptoms or Transmission.
  • Prices for evolving can range from as little as 0 to as high as over 100 (Mega Brutal only).

DNA-giving genes Edit

The following Genes will, if added to the Genetic Code, give extra DNA points in varying ways. They must be discovered before becoming available for use.

DNA cost-modifying genes Edit

These genes modify the DNA cost of most abilities in different ways. They must, again, be discovered before they can be used.
