On Ingress Second Sundays

The Ingress Second Sunday #Ingress2S events were introduced to encourage exploration and adventure, and we are ready to expand the idea by adding more variations to the ways you may earn this medal. While doing 6 unique Missions will still suffice through December, Agents could be offered an alternative set of challenges in later Second Sundays.
