With the coming anomaly series #EXO5, Niantic has created a side event for those that can’t participate in person (and also for medal collectors) called the #EXO5 Controller Event!
From: October 2nd 23:59 UTC
To: October 16 23:59 UTC
This event will reward the EXO5 Controller Medal for creating Control Fields during the event. There will be three tiers for this medal that can be unlocked!
Tier 1: 100
Tier 2: 500
Tier 3: 2000
During the event, a new field will appear in your Agent stats indicating how many fields you’ve created during the event. If you’re shooting for tier 3, that’s ~143 control fields created a day. Get those walking shoes ready and those gas tanks filled!
