    1. Title: Map "Sparkles" appear behind and outside of map.
    2. Reproducible? Yes, apparently I don't know what caused the sparkles to appear and after restarting the game there are no "quest tracker sparkles" -- but if you open the map and wait a few minutes the sparkles appear.
    3. Blocker? No.
    4. Details: The blue sparkles you see on the screenshot show up BEHIND the map (only visible on the map when it goes into "Fade" mode. I know it's for the quest trackers because it was parked behind the person I needed to go talk to. If I make the map bigger, the sparkles that are off to the side (outside of the map) line up with quest points out there -- so a failure to clip it would seem.
    5. Steps to Reproduce: Open the mini map.
    6. User Specs: (RAM, CPU, GPU and Operating System only) 64GB, Intel Quad Core 4.0Ghz, Nvidia 1080 GTX, Windows 10 v2004 (latest official release).

    I have been seeing this for years in the Outskirts scenes (and other scenes with quest markers). It seems the Blue markers on the map will start bleeding out sparkles onto the screen. Here is a video showing how it looks and what it is doing:

    Is there any other info we could provide for this?
