Stealth Ops is for those Agents looking to push themselves physically and mentally in the build up to the Anomaly. And then to take a leadership role over their fellow Agents during the Anomaly.
Your GORUCK Cadre, a decorated combat Veteran of Special Operations, will simulate the missions that happen during the Anomaly under conditions of physical and mental stress: the measurement windows, the movement to the volatile locations, and the factional battles that ensue.
During Stealth Ops, you will learn to apply the 4 steps of leadership:
Understand the problem
Visualize a solution
Adapt to win
Your GORUCK Cadre is training you to become one of your faction's most elite ground force leaders. Upon completion of Stealth Ops, you will earn the Ingress GORUCK Stealth Ops patch and the Ingress GORUCK Stealth Ops badge.
This is the most physically intensive badge in the history of Ingress... so far.
Notes on Stealth Ops:
This is both a cross-factional and competitive event. Competitions during Stealth Ops will be Resistance vs. Enlightened.
You will be training in the same Area of Operations (AO) as the Anomaly, hacking gear, obtaining Portal Keys, undergoing Missions, and laying the groundwork for your faction's success.
Ingress point totals from Stealth Ops will not affect the outcome of the Anomaly, sort of how training does not affect the outcome of a war. Until you affect the outcome because of your training.
GORUCK Cadre have executed over 3,000 Challenges similar to this in physicality. Our Cadre are trained to teach you how to succeed when you work together - that's their mission. The average pass rate for those who show up is 94%. The average pass rate for those who do not show up is always 0.
