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.

The following shows the amount of AP required to reach the next level.

Level +AP Total AP
L2 +10,000 10,000
L3 +20,000 30,000
L4 +40,000 70,000
L5 +80,000 150,000
L6 +150,000 300,000
L7 +300,000 600,000
L8 +600,000 1,200,000
