For now, read up on the Outriders patch notes below.
Outriders Upcoming Buffs

The Ammo replenished by the Bullet Absorption mod has been increased to 40% (Previously: 33%)
The Resistance debuff provided by the Susceptibility mod has been increased to 50% (Previously: 34%)
The “Reload Boost” and “Lava Shots” Mods have had their perks swapped.
Reload Boost will now increase Anomaly Power (Previously: Firepower)

Ash blast has had it’s base skill cooldown reduced by 5 seconds, from 27.5 to 23.5 seconds
The buff duration of the Death Sentence mod has been increased by 3 seconds, from 5 to 8 seconds
Reduced the cooldown of Borrowed Time by 3.5 seconds, from 13.5 seconds to 10 seconds

Increased the Weapon Cleave damage provided by the “Pain Transfer” mod to 20% Weapon Damage (Previously: 10% Weapon Damage)
Reduced the base cooldown of Pain Launcher by 10 seconds, from 40 seconds to 30 seconds
Edit: This was mistakenly listed as reduced to 17 due an error on my part. Apologies for the confusion! The actual reduction is to by 10 seconds to 30 seconds CD.
Reduced the base cooldown of Scrapnel by 5 seconds, from 22 seconds to 17 seconds
The Hail Shot mod has had its SPF set to 1.5 (Previously: 1)
SPF controls how much this mod benefits from the Status Power attribute. This change effectively means that the damage increase provided by Hail Shot will increase by 50%, though the effectiveness of this improvement still depends on the character’s Status Power attribute.
Using the Skill will now provide significant (65%) damage reduction during it’s animation
Players can now press trigger again to use an AOE attack during the run animation
Enemies affected by Endless Mass can now be damaged and killed during the animation
Changed the “Wide Horizons” mod so that, on top of the range increase, the mod will allow Endless Mass to ignore the enemy skill “Absorbing Skin” used by Alpha Perforos and Brood Mothers
Ending the Skill early will now refund a part of the cooldown (up to 90%)

Personal Space will have its damage bonus increased from 15% to 25%

Outriders Upcoming Fixes and Changes
Will improve the multiplayer experience so that rubberbanding & packet loss should now be reduced for players under 350ms pings
Will fix the Technomancer’s Borealis Monarch Set and correctly grant the 90% damage increase to any frozen targets
Will resolve an issue with the Devastator’s Statue Set and change its description to match its behaviour
The New Description is:
While either Tremor or Golem is active, increase Firepower by 100% and Weapon Skill Leech by 100% for you and your teammates
The Old Description was:
Using either Tremor or Golem increases Firepower by 100% and Weapon Skill Leech by 100% for you and your teammates
The old functionality meant that the Statue set bonus could end after 8 seconds. Reworking this set means that the bonus can now be maintained for longer.
Will fix an issue that can cause the Trickster’s Hunt the Prey to not turn the player towards an enemy’s back if aiming down sights immediately after activation
Will improve the targeting of the Tricksters Venator’s Knife so that it should now more consistently target a player’s intended enemy
Will implement a change to the Anti-Duplication system so that your equipped items will not be taken into account when checking whether to re-roll a dropped duplicate
