Hello, ive been having random, severe lag spikes while playing Destiny 2 and is becoming nigh unplayable in some places.
The issue first started happening the day after the seraph shield exotic mission dropped where, at random, my fps will go from my usual 80-90, plummet down to 2-3 fps for about 2-7 seconds, then shoot back up to the usual 80-90.
I've noticed this low fps spike occurs when one of these things happen:
* a lot of active enemies are on screen,
* when a big particle effect happens,
* playing back video on something like YouTube or having your OBS preview open (or recording with it while the window is minimized).
[i]do note that before seraph shield came out I had no issues doing any of these aforementioned things while playing Destiny 2.[/i]
The most recent example I have of this fps spike happening is in the Gahlran encounter of Duality were about 10% of the time i left one of the side rooms while in the nightmare (killing shades or getting a banner) the fps would do as described and go from 80-90fps, down to 2-3fps for about 2-7 seconds, then back to normal. (has also happened in the non-nightmare version of the room) This is a link to what i am talking about: ([url=https://youtu.be/bCPcaBsm1XM]Video[/url])
Other notable places I have had this occur being the throne world (during the deliver the bomb public event), during totems in KF (right side), and the Caitl boss fight in Duality (non-nightmare realm), plus a couple other locations.
I have already done the basic troubleshooting steps of closing programs, (helps, since the case of video playback doesnt come up, but I like having them open sooo) verifying integrity of game files, stable internet connection, etc.
anyways, apologies for the essay, just trying to provide as much info on the issue observed as i can and hope for a fix. ill leave the critical specs of my machine below:
Computer: Lenovo Legion 5i (laptop)
CPU: Ryzen 4600H (no OC)
GPU: GTX 1660ti (mobile) (no OC)
Memory: 16gb RAM
Integrated Display: 1920x1080 120hz (main game display)
External Display (HDMI): 1920x1080 60hz
OS: Windows 10 Home 22H2 Build 19045.2486
*one last thing: Destiny 2 is the only game i have observed these fps issues on, so unlikely a system issue.
