CPU spikes to 100% usage
My game mostly runs fine at 120 fps, but quite some time ago (2 or more months ago) I started noticing fps drops. At first they occurred very rarely and were not a very big issue, but recently (last 2-3 weeks) they have become more frequent and much more severe.
I've noticed that the fps drops are because CPU spikes to 100% usage. This mostly happens once or twice per map on the first play through. Meaning that if I play the same map twice, I'll get the drops only the first time. That's just an observation, not 100% sure about this. Most often the drops appear immediately after hooking survivor as a killer or as in this case - when unhooking survivor, but it may appear in other cases as well which I can't pin-point.

I used to run the game on highest graphic settings maybe a year or more ago without any issues. Since then the performance has gradually decreased. That's sad.
