The following patch notes were taken from an official Respawn Reddit post.
Respawn just put out a server patch for all platforms with MORE balance adjustments for shotguns, specifically the Peacekeeper! See below for specifics, as well as some info about The Game Awards 2019!
SHOTGUN BALANCE CHANGES
Decreased bolt hit size for Peacekeeper and EVA-8 (bolt = pellet)
- Our goal here is to make it harder to land full chunks of damage while still making sure shots continue to feel consistent.
Increased shot spread for Peacekeeper
- We want to preserve its bursty fantasy of precision and snapshots, as well as its playmaking potential but felt that it's been too strong at range so we’ve increased shot spread meaning that now players need to get closer in order to do full 100+ damage blasts with the Peacekeeper.
Increased spread on final Precision Choke level
- This reduces the range that you can do full damage with a fully charged Precision Choke shot.
