Coming soon: Drone Hack Weekend event

Update: Agents successfully executed 642,324 Drone hacks and Drone Glyph hacks, far exceeding the Global Target of 400,000 hacks and unlocking boosted 2X Power Cube drop rate from all Portal hacks and Drone hacks for 1 week, until Tues, Jan 26 at 17:00 UTC. Well done, Agents!

Agents, this weekend we will (virtually) gather through the Dronenet. From Friday, January 15th 17:00 UTC to Tuesday, January 19th 17:00 UTC, the cool-down time of Drone Mark I will be reduced from 60 minutes to 15 minutes. A collective goal of achieving a total of 400,000 Drone hacks or Drone Glyph hacks during this event will unlock a 2X drop rate of Power Cubes following the event, from Tuesday, January 19th 17:00 UTC to Tuesday, January 26th 17:00 UTC. 

  • All Drone hacks and Drone Glyph hacks will be counted towards the 400,000 Drone hack target. For example, hacking the same Portal twice will count as 2 Drone hacks.
  • Hacking and/or Glyph hacking a Portal without the Drone will not be included in the collective Drone hack target count; only hack actions through the Drone will be counted.
  • Progress of reaching the goal of 400,000 hacks will be updated once per day on the News Feed.
  • This event will not have a Medal nor a new personal Agent Stat added to the Scanner. 

Boost your gameplay by picking up the BOGO Apex Bundle, available for the duration of the event. The Apex Bundle includes 2 Apex Mods for 2500 CMU.

While this event can be played at home safely, 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 six feet of distance from other people).
