A new set of in-app store bundles have appeared in Ingress Prime, honoring Niantic’s recent announcement that they will stop selling high level items via the store bundles. Today’s update features six distinct bundles that are aimed at different Ingress Prime play styles.
|Attack Bundle (common)||Attack Bundle (rare)|
|L6 XMP Burster||50||L6 XMP Burster||100|
|L6 Power Cube||5||L6 Power Cube||15|
|L6 Ultra Strike||5||L6 Ultra Strike||15|
|Price||2700 CMU||Price||5700 CMU|
|Defensive Bundle (common)||Defensive Bundle (rare)|
|Common shield||24||Force Amp||8|
|Rare Portal shield||24|
|Price||2400 CMU||Price||7500 CMU|
|Builder bundle||Meetup bundle (rare)|
|L1 Resonator||20||Rare heat sink||10|
|L2 Resonator||20||Rare Multi-hack||10|
|L3 Resonator||15||Portal Fracker||10|
|Price||5400 CMU||Price||24000 CMU|
Frankly speaking, these deals are not really the greatest, are they now? The majority of these items can be easily farmed from L7 and L8 portals in a matter of a few hours, which is not that uncommon in places where Ingress players hang out.
We’re happy to see that Nianitc is standing by their words (Google+ source):
“Your input regarding the new in-app store item bundles has been valuable. As a result of your suggestions, we are going to make some changes to what is currently offered within the in-app store starting on Wednesday and add new item bundles as well. As Ingress continues to evolve with the release of Ingress Prime, we want to ensure its long-term success so we can celebrate future adventures together.
Based on your feedback, we will no longer be selling items like Aegis Shields or Very Rare Portal Shields in the current item bundles. In addition, the current item bundles will no longer contain Level 7 and 8 items. As before, limited Anomaly kits or special events may vary from this.”
