Trivia Edit

  • If evolved in the Artificial Organs scenario during organ production and distribution, the infected will begin to tear out their artificial organs, causing a jump in the death rate and possibly interrupting the process of unlocking I never asked for this.
  • Insanity makes an appearance in the Neurax Worm DLC, with its price decreased to 10 DNA points and causing an increase in Lethality.
  • Interestingly, when combined with Paranoia, it can cause nuclear explosions, which are said to be sabotaged power plants. Likely, however, it is possibly due to a breakout of nuclear war. Such an outcome is implied by the achievements Chinese Nuclear Retaliation and Russian Nuclear Retaliation, both of which involve evolving Insanity as part of obtaining the achievement.
  • This is the only tier 4 symptom that does not increase lethality at all. As such, its main usage is to reduce cure progress.

Insanity is a symptom from the Neurax Worm DLC. Unlike normal Insanity, this variety is slightly lethal. Countries affected by Insanity will open insane asylums, which will decrease public order.
