Consistantly cannot interact with things

[ Edited ]
★★ Guide

Product: Anthem
Platform:Sony Playstation 4
Please specify your platform model. Sony PlayStation 4
Please select your region North America
Were you on an Expedition when the issue occurred? Yes
What type of Expedition were you on when the issue occurred? Freeplay
What was the name of the Mission / Contract / Stronghold you were on? This issue occurs on any freeplay, mission or stronghold
What was your chosen difficulty level? Grandmaster 2
What Javelin were you using when the issue occurred? Ranger
What was your Expedition team makeup? Mix of the above
Where did this issue occur? Please include menu name or in game location. This issue occurs anywhere, with any Javalin, at any time.
When did this happen? ( hh:mm) Since launch, but more often since March 23 2019
Summarize your bug The blurb 'press (Square) to etc' will often inexplicably not show, and I cannot interact with anything. I cannot harvest, open chests, revive people, open doors. Leaving the mission and starting a new one fixes this.
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? You already should have. It happens often, and is happening more often as time goes on it seems.
What happens when the bug occurs? I do not get a notice: press (Square) to open, (Square) to repair, (square) to harvest, and square pressing square does not cause my Javalin to interact with things as is suppose to happen.
What should be happening instead? Objects should display that they are intractable, and I should be able to interact with them.

This issue occurs everywhere and anywhere.  It happens to my squad mates, and my friends.  It is becoming more frequent.  There doesn't seem to be anything that triggers it.  One moment you can interact with things, and then next you cannot.
