AP & Leveling Up
What is AP?
AP, which stands for Action Points, are the points you gain whilst playing Ingress. Each action you take, from recharging a resonator, to destroying a control field, will gain you AP.
The more AP you have, the higher level agent you become, and the higher level agent you are the higher level equipment you can use, so levelling up gives you a great advantage.
