Game stutters and locks up in Naval matches, how to fix?

So, I have been playing a bit of naval RB lately and I have the following happen several times in the past several days.

Will be playing a match and usually fighting someone or multiple people and all the sudden, my game will stutter/lockup/freeze on me for a few seconds. Does anyone know what is causing this issue? Is it on my end or elsewhere?

Thanks for the help.

Hi,

So not sure if this is similar but when I get destroyed and it shows the shells impacting on my ship I get what feels like a slight stutter(less than a second) with a freeze then it’s all good again. I’m using an i9 13900k and a 4080 so was thinking it’s Gaijin or newest drivers.

Who knows!

This happens every single match to me.

If you take damage, it freezes for 5 seconds
