Blizzard announced the patch details for the June update for "Overwatch" (for PC- PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will get it in a larger, later patch) that is set to change the heroes McCree and Widowmaker.
For McCree, the change comes in the form of his PeaceKeeper, where his alternate fire ability to shoot the rest of his shots in his revolver has been decreased in recover time to reload and the damage it does (70 to 45).
As with Widowmaker, her alternate fire, the scoped shot, has its base damage decreased from 15 to 12. Players also must wait for the unscoping animation to complete itself before going back into scoping again. However, that doesn't mean her overall damage was decreased. In fact, her headshot strength increased from 2x to 2.5x. Her Ultimate also needs more time/cost to fill- 10% more.
In addition, there are a few tweaks overall, such as a silly bug that allows Reaper to Shadow Step into unintended areas (with likely shenanigans to ensue). The patch is live for PC users, but when PS4/Xbox One users get the patch isn't known.
