COLD STEEL CAMPAIGN
The campaign for the Winter is Cold Steel. As usual, you will be able to collect seasonal tokens in the Distance, Challenges, Trade Goods Shop and Daily quests.
The highlight rewards are: Morning Star (Warrior Weapon) for 2000 Winter Tokens and Crescent Edge (Scout Weapon) for 3000 Winter Tokens.
Token collection table:
New Weapon: Morning Star (Warrior)

If the targets collide with another enemy or an obstacle, they get stunned (as long as they are not stun-resistant). Enemies that collide with a pushed target also get stunned (as long as they are not stun-resistant). The main target is never a bodyshot on your own turn.

New Weapon: Crescent Edge (Scout)

Available as a new tab in the shop, Black Market is unlike any other shop in the game. It features 3 random heroes, each coming in at a different time of the day and staying for 24 hours. Each hero offers different items and resources to trade, and also wants different items/resources in return.
While any hero can feature in your Black Market, having that hero upgraded to certain star levels will open up more trade options.
Every trade that is made in the Black Market will earn you Black Market Tokens, which can be exchanged for additional items.
Players can refresh their visiting heroes to new ones in exchange for gold. The refresh will restrict the last 10 heroes that you've had in the Black Market.
Note: Trades made using Black Market tokens do not give you any tokens in return.
Distance is getting a third difficulty mode that unlocks at CL 25 - Nightmare Mode, that starts from level 25 to 52, and features improved rewards, such as Tools, Alt-hero tokens, latest hero tokens, legendary components, and more.
The general difficulty of Normal and Hard modes are decreased:
Normal Mode: Unlocks at CL 8 instead of 12 and starts at difficulty 6 instead of 10
Hard Mode: Unlocks at CL 15 instead of 18 and starts at difficulty 15 instead of 18
An alternative to Distance Resets, the Boost option doubles all of the Distance rewards you've earned so far, as well as the rewards of the upcoming missions.
Activating the Boost disables the Reset option, and vice versa.
Reroll results of badge attributes are now restricted to facilitate getting the desired outcome.
Set/Slot rerolls: Previous results are now restricted until all of the options have been cycled through. After that, the restrictions are reset
Bonus Condition rerolls: Previous 10 results are continuously restricted.
Clarification: The restrictions don't work retroactively, so reroll results prior to the update will not be taken into account.
