This is the primary ticket where you can post all the information regarding to the fprs drops and freezing occurring on 0.61 version.

The fps is dropping to near zero any time more then two shots are fired when two players are in close proximity. This has occurred in empty servers all the way up to full servers. It began after Tuesdays patch. I even saw it happen firing at a zombie with two quick shots from a double barrel. It really makes the game hard to play when you can not interact with other players and know what the game is going to do.
Could it be related to the update to the cursor for close melee combat affecting gun stability?
I also noticed on more then one occasion when the frames drop in close gun fights multiple red alerts pop up all at once if hit: my legs are broken, I'm bleeding , my arms broken. 5 or 6 in total but I can not remember the other maybe repeat alerts. If your legs did break during frame drop or your arm broke you will still be able to walk shoot even if everything's broken at once. It's like your legs/arms were never broken weird
It definitely occurs when 2 players are firing at each other in close proximity.
I don't think it's related to the melee cursor as the melee cursor does not show on 1st person servers and that's where I witnessed it happen.
IMO I think it has to do with the dynamic lighting that was tweaked in the latest patch.
I was watching "deadlyslob" stream on twitch and witnessed it happen to him too.
He mentioned he's pretty sure it only happens with unsupressed weapons (meaning it probably has to do with the muzzle flashes, which is linked to the dynamic lighting tweak)
I have not tried reproducing it with supressed weapons.
