Volatile Scout Controller Portals (VSCPs) updated
Some Volatile Scout Controller Portals (VSCPs) have now been updated, highlighting a new set of Volatiles with the same yellow Portal marker on the
Scout Controlled Layer on the Ingress app and Intel Map. Please note that not every VSCP has been updated; some previously Volatile Portals continue to remain Volatile.
As a reminder, newly claiming Scout Controller status on a VSCP earns up to 3 Scout Controller Points towards the Scout Controller medal. VSCPs will continue to update or refresh over time as more Portals are scanned.
Q: Are Scout Controller Points for VSCPs backfilled on my current Scout Controller medal?
A: No, VSCPs and the up to 3 Scout Controller Points for VSCPs begin with the update, going forward. If you're already Scout Controller on a new VSCP, you won't automatically receive 2 additional Scout Points.
Q: If I’m already Scout Controller on a new VSCP and previously earned 1 Scout Controller Point, can I still earn up to 3 Scout Controller Points towards the Scout Controller medal?
A: Yes, but this isn’t backfilled or granted automatically. You can earn 2 additional Scout Controller Points towards that same Portal if you re-claim Scout Controller status.
Please note that re-claiming Scout Controller requires you to overtake another Agent’s Scout Controller status on a Portal. If you are currently the Scout Controller on a VSCP, even if it has been more than 30 days since your most recent Portal Scan, scanning the same Portal again extends but does not re-claim Scout Controller status.
