I've had the audio issue since i first played the trail of the game, since its still in the 1.05 patch then there's nothing you can do but quit the game and restart it back

The audio bug is recurring; I think there is a thread up on the forum for it and I don't believe there's been any resolution.

I tried swapping to single payer and changing various audio options, didn't help. Also tried disabling/re-enabling audio driver in game just for fun, didn't do a thing.

Only thing that worked for me was rebooting the game after a match in eerie utter silence.

The same problem exists on the Xbox One (as if you didn't already know). At least 50% of multiplayer matches crash the game. When it happens, you lose any consumables you equipped. You also lose all interest in a game that is basically broken. If this is not fixed, I see no reason to try to play multiplayer again - there's just no point.

It's crashing even more now, after the patch.

 

I haven't had a single problem with previous Frostbite titles (Battlefield, DAO).

I'm guessing you've tried all the usual steps? Does it crash in-game? On loading?

I think I narrowed it down. I've been at this for hours and figured out it has something to do with the VC distro they gave out in the patch.

 

Here are my steps

1) Uninstall Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 (both versions)

2) I used CC cleaner to clean out the registry * and delete all the temp files to clean out any remnants. (LOL remnants)

3) Reboot

4) Download a fresh x86 and x64 version of the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistribution (2015) and install them.

     Note: If the install hangs it will error out and you need to clean and try again.

5) Retry to load the game.

 

I hope this helps some people if not all of you

Link for CC Cleaner if your interested in good free software "http://download.cnet.com/ccleaner/"

 

Update:

I haven't had a client crash or a Multiplayer game crash so far so this did work for me.

This recent patch has improved things for me no end on my ps4.

Since this morning I've had about 10 games give or take and not received a single reward for it due to either crashing, losing connection or this BS (see pic):
