Bloodhound Ult DESTROYS performance

★★★★ Novice

Bloodhound's Ult, Beast of the Hunt DESTROYS frames. Making me drop ~30-40 frames easily, sometimes even going from 145 to 40, making the game unplayable during it and making me wish I never ulted.

And it happens on THIS setup :


- RTX 2070,

- Ryzen 2600x

- 16GB Ram 3066mhz


Please, at least tell us that you guys acknowledge the issue and will look into optimizing it because it's an issue I see many people complain about but for some reason it goes unnoticed. It's really affecting the class and many people don't play BH for this reason alone.

Same problem here, I’m on ps4 and I didn’t always have this problem. I played a lot of bloodhound since release and didn’t have this problem at apex’s launch. But for some reason bloodhound’s ultimate kills my frame rates and I can’t play him anymore Frown

Devs, please, address this issue it is literally game-breaking! Using Bloodhound's ability lowers fps to the point when You can't accurately aim ! I have constant 73fps but in the fight it drops to 20 ! It is impossible to aim at that number of frames per second!

I had the same problem several times in PS4.

Huge fps drop while using bloodhound ultimte. The last time the drop was to nearly to 10 fps; i was fighting near the mountains of cascades, there was a lot of effects like bangalore's smoke, and i died because it was literally unplayeable.

I've got this issue as well. 


When you activate the ultimate on a zipline, the frames seems to drop even further, making it almost unplayable.
