Rainbow Six Siege Operation North Star has been available for less than a month and has already received its first patch. The second update for the season will be available later this month, and as Ubisoft reveals, it will contain some nerfs and buffs for a number of operators.

Probably the most notable nerf is the recoil increase of Zofia’s M762, which makes it a harder-to-control weapon. On the other hand, Tachanka’s Shumikha Launcher gets yet another buff. Check out the details down below:
