The only reason you’d ever want to use a mod like Viral is if you feel that the world of Minecraft isn’t challenging enough by itself and you want to make things a little bit more interesting. The mod doesn’t really add any actual new functionality to Minecraft but it does manage to make things a lot more difficult for the players and it does so by adding a special kind of Virus to the game named ‘Viral’ and this virus spreads from mobs to mob and is definitely going to make things a lot more tedious for you as you journey through the Minecraft world.
The primary characteristic that makes the virus featured in the Viral mod so tedious is the fact that it actually ends up buffing mobs that are supposed to be hostile to players while simultaneously damaging animals that don’t do any harm to the player. Due to this, the infection will hinder your experience significantly more than you’d initially expect it to and you’ll have to make sure that it doesn’t spread too much because, if it does, all the mobs in the game will eventually be replaced by their buffed up counterparts and that’s something you absolutely don’t want to happen.
Thankfully, the Viral mod also adds a variety of helpful items that have been designed to allow players to control the spread of the virus. These items are a tad bit hard to acquire and it goes without saying that they can’t really help you control the virus fully but, thankfully, as long as you make the most out of them, you’ll be able to contain most of the virus and won’t have to worry about it eventually spreading and infecting every single mob that exists and roams around in the world of Minecraft.
