The Blunderbuss damage has been reduced but the Eye of Reach has increased in damage. This is in responses to player data and Rare has stated they intend to make more changes based on player feedback.

Message from Beyond – A message from the Ferryman has been nailed to the door post on the Ferry of the Damned instructing players on how to scuttle their ship.
This is a reminder to players that if their ship and/or crew is in a position they want to get out of, simply going to “My Crew” in the settings page and voting to “Scuttle Ship” will sink the ship and start the crew in a new location.

Weapon Balancing – Reduced Blunderbuss Damage and Increased Eye of Reach damage.
We’ve been reviewing the data on players weapon choices and damage dealt across our weapons and made some balancing changes. We will continue to monitor this change and further tweak as needed.

[PC Only] Aim Down Sights Sensitivity – We’ve increased the default mouse sensitivity to allow for more efficient aiming and to be in parity with the controller, as we heard your feedback regarding how mouse-mats around the world were being worn out due to how painfully slow it was to aim down the sights.
We are also currently working on further improvements for a future update which will include an ADS slider in the Settings to allow players to choose a sensitivity they feel comfortable with.

[PC Only] Mouse Binds – We’ve added mouse scroll up and down to the list of controls players can use to rebind actions to.

Despite becoming Microsoft's fasting selling new IP Sea of Thieves is facing an uphill battle after its launch. With many criticizing the game's lack of content. Rare has made it clear it intends to add more to the game over the course of months the studio has yet to release a roadmap detailing future DLC updates.

Sea of Thieves is now available for Xbox One and Windows 10.
