Stepping out with Second Sunday
We are excited to introduce Second Sunday, an event encouraging exploration of your local area through Missions.
Second Sundays for July, August, and September are confirmed. During these three months, we will closely monitor the community sentiment and user activity to determine the possibility of making Second Sunday a permanent event.
July Second Sunday will occur Friday, July 9th 4pm UTC to Monday, July 12th 4pm UTC. During this event, completing ANY 6 Missions will increase the Mission Day medal by 1 count. Note that Missions must be unique, meaning they must be 6 different Missions and not repeating 1 Mission six times.
August & September Second Sundays will occur on Sunday, August 8th, and Sunday, September 12th in LOCAL time, from 12am to 11:59pm. During this event, completing any 6 official Mission Day Missions under the official Niantic accounts will increase your Mission Day medal by 1 count.
Official Mission Day Missions are created by the following Niantic accounts:
Update: We now have a partial list of 10,000+ Mission Day missions with links to Intel Map, viewable on a Google map here.
Will Missions that I’ve completed in the past be counted for this event?
Yes, you can do previously completed Missions and it will be eligible for the medal increment.
Will completing 12 unique Missions on the same day give me 2 increments on the Mission Day medal?
No, you will only earn 1 increment of the Mission Day medal per event even if you’ve completed 12 Missions.
How do I find official Missions created by the Niantic accounts?
On your Ingress Scanner, tap the circle Menu button > Missions > All > NIA. Note that you must be in near proximity of the Mission for it to display.
What will happen to Mission Days?
Second Sunday is not a replacement of Mission Day and was created in mind to make Missions more approachable without the need to travel. We look forward to having Mission Days again when we all feel confident in exploring in a safe and healthy environment.
How can I submit an application for a Mission Day in my city?
Mission Day applications are currently closed while we coordinate to prioritize the applicants from 2020 which have been put on hold due to the pandemic.
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/two meters of distance from other people).
