Warzone Buy Station freezes the game

Me and several other people that I know have had an issue where when we hit the buy station for a self revive or to buy a teammate back or whatever it’s for, the game freezes for around 10 seconds to a minute and I’ve gotten eliminated many times because of this and I’m just wondering if there is any info on if this is going to be fixed or not.

Anybody else getting a frozen screen when they buy an item at a buy zone? I select anything and my screen freezes for roughly 5 seconds and then I’m back to normal. Happens almost every time, I’ve died twice because of it. I’m on PS5 btw (Source)
As per reports, when players hit the Buy Station, the game suddenly freezes for around 10 seconds or so. As a result, players get eliminated from the game as soon as it unfreezes. Additionally, players have also reported FPS drops.
Some have also pointed out that it’s happening ever since Rebirth Island is back in the game. However, the actual cause of this glitch is still unknown.
