We would like to inform you that from Friday, 4 August 1700 UTC to Monday, 14 August 1700 UTC, the Ingress Scanner is expected to exhibit the following behaviors:
- All actions will yield double (2x) AP
- APEX will boost AP gain to triple (3x) from double (2x). Therefore, running an Apex during L8 Week will award 6x AP
- 2X deploy L8 Resonators
- The Drone cooldown time will be reduced to 8 minutes
- Each successful Glyph will reward 80AP
- Links shorter than 8km can be created under Fields
- Overclock Glyph Hack duration extended to 80 seconds
- Experimental weapon tuning
Please note that during Level 8 Week, the regularly scheduled Double AP 2sday bonus hour will not be activated because double AP will be granted throughout the duration of the Level 8 Week event.
Furthermore, we are excited to announce the availability of three in-app medals in the in-app Ingress Store. These include the “Level 8 Enlightened Patch,” “Level 8 Resistance Patch,” and a brand new “Level 8 Machina Patch.” Each medal can be purchased for 2,500 CMU.
Thank you for your continued dedication and support.
As always, please remember to be aware of your surroundings. We encourage players to follow local health and safety guidelines when playing Ingress. For the latest on in-game events and feature updates, be sure to check Ingress News.
