Defeat the Corpus Arctic Eximus!
A message from Cantis of the Red Veil Resistance:
You've helped the Red Veil in the past, now we want to return the favor. Our spies have discovered a large batch of Corpus Arctic Eximus are massing for training around the polar region of Mars. With so many Arctic Eximus gathered in one place, you have the perfect opportunity to strike a crippling blow against the Corpus field command.
Go to Mars and take out as many of the Arctic Eximus as possible. We will offer you what we can from the spoils.
- Cantis  
- Visit Mars and take out the specified amount of Arctic Eximus.
- Follow your individual progress bar to see how many Arctic Eximus you have defeated.
- Once you have fulfilled the objective, Cantis will contact you to congratulate you and provide you with your reward!
Go forth and take down the Corpus Arctic Eximus, Tenno!

Glad to see some weapon changes. Don't know how often they happen but, surely nice to see some. Gotta see how it affects gameplay now.
The new additions are great as well, gonna have to try that.
Here's redtext for all those unfortunate souls who missed it, or those who want to re-read it.
EDIT: Now that I read the update notes, I'm disappointed not to see a Miter change. Thing really needs a buff, and it was mentioned that it would be...

EDIT 2: For all curious, the reward for killing 100 enemies is...

A 3 day Affinity Booster. No more progress for rewards can be done after that. If I were you, I would claim it on Friday (or whenever you can get the most free time out of it). You get roughly 20 Eximi enemies down per mission, so it shouldn't take long.
