Apex Legends Random Freezing

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

I'm having issues with Apex Legends, that it's randomly freezing for approx. 10 sec.
It seems to be completely random and when it freeze it also "crashes" my discord for the whole duration of the freeze. The freeze it self causes me to run on the spot in game, i'm able to look around, but moving is impossible. Just as i unfreeze i can hear my friends again and return to playing as nothing as happend.. 

 

It happen ATLEAST once every game, but most likely 2 times, and i've never had this happen in any other games.

 

 

 

I've tried the following:

-Update Graphics driver + windows update 

-Re-instal origin and APEX 
-Every combination of graphic setting

-Restart my network equipment

 

I play with 2 friends, and non of them have had this issue. 

 

PC specs:

8700k

MSI 1080ti
16GB 3400MHz 
MSI z370 gaming 
500GB NVME SSD 

 

Hopefully someone got a trick, because its making a very fun game almost unplayable Frown 

 

**EDIT**

I found a fix that worked for me..

Open Killer Control Center -> disable Advance Stream Detect

 

After this i haven't had a single crash.

I found a fix that has worked for me so far in like 10 games (The freeze use to happen ATLEAST once a game)

 

Open Killer Network Control -> disable Advance Stream Detect 

 

I closed my killer control center again because it causes alot of errors for me in general, and it seem to work fine without it running

Same problem I have a xfx r9 280x. Everything is updated and running fine with other games, the first and second day of playing everything was fine and now every couple of matches everything freezes and I have to turn of the computer. I can still access windows but I can't in any way close the game. Help?

I have the same problem. It’s exactly as you have described it.

I was able to reduce the freezes to 1 every game using borderless windowed (but it doesn’t work at 100%, sometime I still get two freezes).

 

This problem is pretty annoying.

 

I hope devs will resolve it ASAP

 

here my specs:

 

Windows 10

I7-8700k

nvidia 1080ti

32gb ram

latest driver installed

game installed on ssd

this problem has already made me die several times during the match, I am getting unable to play this game and I imagine many other people with the same problem is also.

 

Could some moderator please comment on this?

I am also having the same problem, I do not believe it is hardware based and could be related to the ISP. I currently have ATT Uverse.

I'm having the exact same problem. My character can't move but it can look around. I hear other game activity, but I'm essentially frozen in place for 10 to 15 seconds. This happens almost every game. My gaming PC plays BFV just fine, so it's not a hardware issue on my end. I have very reliable and fast broadband, 120mbps down and 8mbps up.
