Bloodhounds Ultimate causes FPS drops

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Product: Apex Legends
Platform:Microsoft XBOX One
Please specify your platform model. Microsoft Xbox One X
What is your gamertag/PSN ID/EA Account name? Ralphyyyz
Please provide your squad mates' gamertag/PSN ID/EA Account name if possible.
Which Legend were you playing (if applicable)? Bloodhound
Which Legends were your squad mates using (if applicable)?
Where did the issue occur? In a match
Which part of the map or menu were you in? If you don't remember the exact name, please describe the area or what you were trying to do in the menu. Anywhere really
What were you doing when the issue occurred? E.g. respawning a squad mate at a beacon, using an ability, a squad mate left the game. Always and only when using Bloodhounds Ultimate
Did your squad mates also experience the issue? Yes
How many matches had you played in a row before the issue occurred? From the beginning
When did this happen? (dd.mm.yy hh:mm) From launch day till today 17/02
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
How severe is your issue? Major impacts to gameplay
What happens when the bug occurs? The gameplay spikes a lot, dipping as low as 15 fps occassionally.
What should be happening instead? Running smooth
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Use Bloodhounds ultimate when engaging in a fight on xbox one x

Because the game is optimized for 4k on the one x, which is super lovely when playing anything but bloodhound, I think it's simply too stressful for the console with everything going on at the same time. I have lots of friends playing on the regular xbox one with zero issues, but every one x player I know is experiencing it. A real shame seeing as Bloodhound is such a vital legend, yet we're at a disadvantage if we decide to play him. Good thing I'm in love with the Wraith!

I think the bloodhound's HUD when in ultimate should be static, bangalore sometimes throw smoke and mirage sometimes ults.

Bloodhound FPS drop

★★★★ Novice

So I’ve been using Bloodhound since the release of the game and every now and then actually every time I use his main ability my FPS drops to around 40 FPS and it’s basically unplayable. I have 80-100 FPS when playing can someone help please?

Hey @ThickAlien,, make sure that all drivers for windows and your gpu drivers are up to date. 
 
You can also try to do a Clean Boot to see if there any programs messing with Apex and turn off any overlay programs for example Discord or Nvidia experience.
 
Try running a CCleaner to remove old temp files and cache.
 
If nothing of the above works can you upload a dxdiag so we can see what drivers and hardware you are using 
 
Let me know if this works or not for you. Standard smile

ps4 (not pro) huge fps drops

★★★★★ Newbie

Almost whole time it's like fps below 30. Some locations like swamp houses even less fps. Scopes more than 2x giving another drop. Bloodhound ult feels like 10 fps. Almost unplayable.

What would I need to do if the same thing happens on a Xbox one x. Because I agree with everything he says. It always happens at the wrong time during battle and it is unplayable. Is there something I can do or you guys can look into

Bloodhound FPS drop

★★★★ Novice

So I play on my Xbox one x and my main legend is bloodhound but it’s hard to use my ultimate sometimes because it will drop in FPS way to much to where it’s unusable. Is there something wrong my my Xbox or is it possible to look into the issue on your guys side? It’s to the point where I rarely use the ultimate because I lose gunfights that I should be losing just due to the FPS drop and you can’t cancel the ultimate either so your stuck with it either until it runs out or you get knocked
