Hey guys just wanna add my input on this issue a lot of us are having. In the other ongoing topic there was some discussion about lasers affecting this problem.
I think this could be the right area to look in for a few reasons.
My game never froze once until after i started getting into the dlc.
I mainly use lasers particularly glitched lasers so I basically farmed for them in the dlc until i got one for each element.
I keep 3 lasers equipped all the time.
I freeze up pretty often to the point where its not fun anymore so im testing using other guns now to see if it helps. Ill update anything I find on here I just wanted to put this out there so other players or the devs could test it as well.
