This issue just started for me in the past few days. Sydney servers say i'm playing on 9-14ms ping with zero packet loss but since the start of season 4 all i get is lag and frames dropping, made it hard enough to play and now i can't sprint or when I do it cancels. I use auto sprint on PS4. Still waiting over a month for any update from a community manager on my latency/packet loss post. EA and respawn really need to get your act together. Why did I bother putting money and time into this game?

I'm having this same issue. I also swapped my sprint with my back left paddle and will be hitting hit 4 or more times and it may or may not work. Also tried auto sprint and double click sprint with it still happeneing. Made me almost throw my elite series 2 controller away after 2 months of use. Wtf is going on?
I believe I have solved this issue! I use a mechanical keyboard that allows some settings to be customized. I started experiencing this issue, and then I realized that I had accidentally changed the 'repeat' speed setting on the keyboard. Meaning the speed at which the signal is sent to the computer when you hold down a key continuously. So when the shift key was being pressed, it was effectively spamming the game with too many Shift commands. When I changed the repeat speed back to normal the problem went away. If you aren't using a programmable keyboard, check the keyboard settings in your operating system.
