@ImAlwaysMadBro Can you try a repair of your game and see if anything changes? You can get this option by right-clicking the game panel in Origin.
Thanks to those who were able to confirm that the patch helped.
On the other hand I can confirm that previously reported i7-i9 hangs were fixed and not reproducible anymore.
Had 20 games last night finally crash-free.
Thanks for the confirmation, @Theodredd
@wiseolddude, I asked some questions in this thread, best to keep your case to one thread: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Technical-Issues/PC-Apex-Legends-Stuttering-Hitching-FPS-Drop-Frametime-Sp...
I did the repair and my game only crashed once out of 6 games played. Better than not being able to play at all. Thank you. @EA_David
