Turning Footsteps Volume Down Reduces Lag

According to Reddit user u/Shaine_Memes, this helped reduce the disconnects he was experiencing for him and his group on PS4. Has anyone tried this, and if so, does it help with lag? Here is the original post:

    I'll try this tonight when I get on. Does it fix "in-combat" bug too? ROFL...but seriously, how does ZoS not find these things on their own? Why are WE always finding the band-aid fixes?

    This was a long-time issue on consoles that I believe they've acknowledged before? This was one of the band-aid fixes for a lot of PS4/Xbox crashes in Trials for a while, IIRC.

    That said, yeah, they gotta fix this sorta crap. It does make some sense though, if you disable sounds, it's less things for the game to attempt to process.

    I think that the leaderboards cause a lot of lag too but it's impossible to turn them off so there's no way to know for sure.

    Oddly enough footstep noises in games irritate me so I always turn them down to 0 or almost 0. I can see how turning them off could reduce lag as that just less to process.

    Enjoy the game, life is what you really want to be worried about.

    YES. Everything on the UI was touched by the head boss and since then never inspected until players got sick of lag enough to dive under the hood to try anything out.

    Going to try this friday and while I am at it, just turn everything off lol.

    You and crow are the last people in the world that should give lag advice to anyone.

    This sounds like some AD night lads trick so they can sneak up and gank us more easily.

    After doing some testing over the weekend, I'm pleasantly surprised with the results during large battles. Noticeably different for me. Remarkable difference.
