Before the melee mayhem update, everything was butter smooth even on medium/high settings with very slight occasional stutters but nothing too serious. But after the update, the game is quite unplayable as simply by making sharp turn to engage on attackers will result in obvious stutters and fps drop. The moment I engage in any gun fights in close range, the fps will drop instantly by a lot and this is obviously unfavourable and leads to frustrating moments.
I have already lowered my graphical settings to the minimal but stutters are still there. I doubt I have any sound drivers incompatibility anymore as I fixed it. I already did a full uninstall, verifying game files thru steam. I have checked that the game is indeed running on the intended GPU as I have set this game to run on it on the nvidia control panel. Also, apparently this game is no longer recognised as a game in the geforce experience oddly.
I currently have a windows 10 home, i7-7700HQ, GTX 1060 6GB & DirectX 12 to boot.
And yes, I believe this is still occurring after that performance issue hotfix patch
