CPU Issues when hosting

When I am not the host my frames are a steady 60 fps and my CPU usage is generally around 40%, even in more dense hordes. Recently however (within the last week) when I host games my CPU will drop to ~12% usage when specials/hordes spawn causing my frames to tank to ~10 fps and the game to move incredibly slowly. I know the game uses your CPU to do the pathfinding but this has never been an issue for me before.

CPU: Ryzen 7 3700x
GPU: RTX 3070
RAM: 3200 MHz 16GB DDR4

Console log of the last game I hosted:
console-2022-01-18-19.19.54-fae9a171-e029-4a19-be84-e1bed24dbad2.log (3.2 MB)

My settings:
user_settings.txt (328.8 KB)

We haven’t changed anything on our end, so I suspect something else is interfering with your CPU usage or it’s being bottlenecked somehow. Try a ‘Selective Startup’ and see if the issue persists:

  1. Press the Windows key
  2. Type ‘msconfig’ and select ‘System Configuration’
  3. On the ‘General’ tab, select ‘Selective Startup’
  4. Deselect ‘Load startup Items’
  5. Reboot your PC
  6. Launch Vermintide 2 as normal
