View Faction Drones with Dronenet Layer

edited May 2021 in News

The addition of the 'Dronenet' Layer brings a new look to your Dronenet, now with a distinct appearance to show your Faction.  

After enabling the Dronenet Layer and moving your Drone, Agents can also view other Agent's Drone on Portals, with each Portal accommodating a maximum of 8 Drones. If a Drone attempts to move to a Portal with 8 Drones, the action will not be completed and an error message will display. 

With the addition of Dronenet Layer,  a new five tier achievement medal, ‘Maverick’ will be added. The 'Maverick' medal will contribute to level-up requirements. The medal will increment by 1 for each Drone hack made; for example, if you hack the same Portal twice the medal will increment by 2. The increment will be retroactive and the number of hacks under All Time > Resource Gathering > Drone Hacks will be applied to your Maverick medal. 

  • Bronze: 250 hacks
  • Silver: 1,000 hacks
  • Gold: 2,000 hacks
  • Platinum: 5,000 hacks
  • Onyx: 10,000 hacks

The Agent stats will also have a new addition of Drones Returned metric, indicating the number of Drones you have sent back to Agents, including your own Faction. When a Dronenet is returned to the Agent, they will be notified in COMM. 

As always, please remember to be aware of your surroundings. We encourage players to follow local health and safety guidelines when playing Ingress (such as wearing masks and maintaining at least 2 meters/6 feet of distance from other people).
