As far as I know one agent can only install two mods on a portal.

But I just came across a portal that has four mods by the same agent.

How's that possible?

This happens when an Enlightened agent uses a Jarvis Virus or a Resistance agent uses an ADA Refactor on a portal which already has four mods deployed; when that happens, the portal, all resonators and mods on the portal become owned by the agent who used the Virus / Refactor. (In the opposite case when an Enlightened agent uses a Refactor or a Resistance agent uses a Virus, the portal, the resonators and the mods become owned by __ADA__ or __JARVIS__ respectively).

  • But do jarvis'd portals not usually show "__JARVIS__" as owner and mod-installer? See Jarvis Virus at Wikia. The portal in question (and it's mods) showed the name of an agent. Sep 3, 2016 at 18:55
  • Depends on the faction of the agent using the Virus / Refactor; see edit. Sep 3, 2016 at 19:14

It's also possible that during some special events agents can use more mods (such as the recent anniversary event).

  • God I miss these days! ;) 2 R8, 2 R7, 4 mods, that was awesome!
