Same here, on PS4. Had a few times where the game just paused all of a sudden. Got trapped in the ring a few times. Even had a clipping one where my character would go back behind the ring even though I passed it. Lots of weird stuff going on lately.
I keep getting the same issue of freezing anywhere from right before character selection to the dropship. It's extremely annoying i originally thought it was because of my internet but at this point i highly doubt that. It's insane they have not fixed this issue yet. Sometimes you can get a match in but most of the time it freezes the very first match i join.
I have an i5 and to this day have the same issue.....i have turned all my graphics down to low and only run the game and discord for comms and it will happen anywhere from 0-every game over the course of 1-5 hrs of playing......ive absolutely had it with this * and am furious that its gone one and unfixed for so long...litteraly had this issue since patch 2 of season 3. if you have any tips or know where to look for some id appreciate it greatly

Season 3 is causing my machine to hard lock when playing Apex. Happened 10+ times now.
Lock up occurs at random times while playing - running, jumping, looking etc...no pattern. Has also happened on the Firing Range.
When the lock up is about to happen, the screen stops responding, my mouse pointer continues to move for about 1 second and then my machine becomes completely unresponsive. No Windows keyboard shortcuts work. I have to hit the reset button.
Any in-game sound samples playing at the time of the lock-up will finish playing and then it's silence..so if there's a drop ship coming in, I'll hear the sample finish then no more sounds are played. At that point it's reset button time.
I have tried disabling Origin in-game and Repairing my Apex install - will see if that makes any difference.

I've had nothing but problems with Season 3 and it's always when I'm about to start a game or launch from the drop ship, the worst is when you're playing ranked and you just freeze up and can't do anything. Every time this happens I have to force shut down Apex just to get it going again.
This has been happening all season and I feel like nothing has been fixed since.
