Ubisoft today announced the official second title update to be released starting today for PC and 01-14-2016 for consoles. This update is being released first to PC to verify improvements before releasing to consoles.
EDIT: This was a mistake as weapons were not nerfed, the damage was changed to display the amount of damage done to operators wearing light armor.
Along with Ubisoft’s Season One v2.0 release of Rainbow Six Siege, came a fairly unnoticed nerf of weapons. Every weapon in the game before v2.0 was nerfed, a few more significantly than others.
