MZFPK and the 2023 Anomaly Seasons

At RES 50.92% vs 49.08% ENL, The MZFPK is captured by the **Resistance**.

NIA is aware that Jarvis is heading to Zürich Hauptbahnhof.

Agents' destruction of Machina portals during MZFPK is causing a chain reaction.

The investigation continues...

“The displacement of a single electron by a billionth of a centimeter at one moment might make the difference between a man being killed by an avalanche a year later, or escaping.” – Alan Turing

What if Tycho confused the Globe City Studio, Berlin for the Globe of Science and Innovation in his visions? What if Jarvis were meant to rendezvous with Devra at the nearby Mengenlehreuhr and not the Zürich Hauptbahnhof? We’re in a new timeline now, and it’s about time.


The MZFPK XM Event will take place on Saturday, 18 March globally. We believe each Agent accessing their Scanner between 00:00 and 23:59 local time will receive a set of six (6) operations – a structure known as HexQuest – from K, under a new “Agent Ops” screen:

The tasks will be:

  1. Trek 6 km
  2. Complete 60 hacks
  3. Deploy 60 Resonators
  4. Deploy 16 Mods
  5. Earn 60 Glyph Points
  6. Destroy 24 Resonators

These operations will expire at 23:59 local time.

Agents completing all six (6) operations by 23:59 local time will earn the in-app MZFPK Anomaly medal.


The Faction with a higher number of Agents completing all six (6) tasks will capture the MZFPK XM Event. If the Resistance wins, Jarvis goes to Zürich. If the Enlightened win, he goes to Berlin.

Additionally, the Roland Jarvis 2023 Loadout Kit and Ollie Lynton-Wolfe 2023 Loadout Kit will be added to the in-game Store, available for purchase, limited to 1 per Agent.
