Mini freeze issue

So I’ve finally come to terms with the fact that I’m going to get fps drops here and there. But there’s one issue I’m having that’s really annoying. Every time I get near another player, my game will have a mini freeze every 5-10 seconds or so. The freeze is only a fraction of a second but it’s enough to make anything moving jump across my screen, completely throwing off my aim. I’m not sure if it’s lag or something else entirely. If there is any known fix for this issue, or any suggestions as to what my problem might be, I’d be extremely grateful for the help. Again, I’m running an overclocked GTX 970 and a FX 8350 with 8GB DDR3 RAM. My internet speed is 55 down 5 up. I’m also running Rust off of an SSD, although I’ve quite forgotten what the disk’s speed is. Thanks in advance. - Torchic
