Gears 5 freezing and audio issues

I’ve been playing this game since release and I’ve had an odd issue on and off since then. Sometimes when I join a game (versus, horde, and escape) there’s no voice audio from any of the characters and what’s worse is that if I’m in escape and enter a safe room I end up trapped inside of as the normal progression does not happen and the door to the next area never opens. If I’m in versus or horde then the game just completely freezes in between rounds and it’s unplayable and usually it’s accompanied by halfway loaded menus. I know this is probably related to the overloaded servers and just general mediocrity that Gears 5 has become infamous for, but has anyone else seen this or know of any fixes? I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled the game twice if that helps to know.
