Post update PS4 FPS lagging in combat with multiple machines

Has anyone else on PS4 had a noticeable increase in sluggish frame rates when approaching/ in combat with groups of machines?
Base assault (even the smallest easy ones) is a guarantee that this will happen now. Before 1.43 update it was the usually just the fully entrenched ones when you had a lot of machines running around. Now, it acts up when approaching larger groups of machines anywhere on the map. Ex. A single Harvester and its few minions are enough to cause the FPS to drop noticeably. This has caused a good number of game crashes as well.
