Niantic has announced some changes to make playing Ingress easier without putting yourself or others at increased risk of getting infected with novel Coronavirus. Agents will be able to keep their sojourner alive by recharging from home. Agents who do leave the house for exercise and fresh air (or those lucky enough to be in range of a portal from their homes) will be able to make the most of their Ingress time by deploying double level 7 and 8 resonators, as well as hacking portals at 90-second intervals and hacking the same portal 16 times, without a heat-sink or multi-hack.
I’d love to hear from agents whether a heat-sink or multi-hack acts on top of these bonuses – I suspect they do.
So stay safe and healthy out there, agents.
