Niantic Labs added the Recruiter Medal to Ingress, adding a new way to reward players for successfully recruiting new Agents.

Ingress players on Android and iOS now have the opportunity to invite and enlist friends and family to their faction by accessing the “Recruit” tab in the Ops menu of the game. The Recruiter Medal features five tiers; rewarding players based on the amount of new Agents they recruit:

  • Bronze – Recruiter enlisted two Agents who have reached Level 3 or higher.
  • SIlver – Recruiter enlisted ten Agents who have reached Level 3 or higher.
  • Gold – Recruiter enlisted twenty-five Agents who have reached Level 3 or higher.
  • Platinum – Recruiter enlisted fifty Agents who have reached Level 3 or higher.
  • Black – Recruiter enlisted one hundred Agents who have reached Level 3 or higher.

Following the upcoming anomaly season where thousands of Ingress Agents will walk around the streets of their cities to capture control of key real-world locations (dates and cities of the next anomaly player tour are still to be announced), Niantic Labs will also reveal the Top 100 Recruiter leaderboard, highlighting how many recruits joined each group and will reward the winning team with points in the overall event series.
