The launch of Season 2 in Apex Legends has brought several changes to the Kings Canyon map, and we’re here to make sure you’re caught up on everything there is to know.

The highly anticipated second season of Apex Legends finally went live on July 2, introducing a flurry of new content and significant changes to the popular battle royale.

One of the aspects of the game that was modified is the map, which now includes a couple of new named points-of-interest, as well as a more close-up look at the gigantic creatures known as Leviathans.

Respawn EntertainmentHere is the new map for Season 2 of Apex Legends.

Containment and The Cage

The arrival of Season 2 has added several new installations. camps, and outposts on the map, with the two most prominent ones being Containment and The Cage.

Containment is located in the northern reaches of the map, between Artillery and The Pit, finally giving a name to a part of Kings Canyon that was already a popular landing spot to begin with.

Respawn EntertainmentContainment is located in the northern part of the map, near the canyons that surround The Pit.

Easily the most noticeable new point-of-interest, The Cage is a six-story installation just to the right of the very dead center of the map, occupying the empty space between Hydro Dam and the river.

According to EA, this “behemoth” was created by an organization known as the Mercenary Syndicate in order to “draw competitors to supplies like moths like a grizzly flame.”

At six stories, The Cage is the most eye-catching addition to Season 2 of Apex Legends.

Leviathans storm the map

The first thing players will notice when loading into a match in Season 2 will be the fact that the large, mysterious creatures known as Leviathans have gone from residing outside the boundaries of the map to the very center.

Two of the enormous creatures have traded the expanse of the surrounding waters for the central river, after apparently having stormed through the arena in rage.

As a result of their stampede, several familiar locations of the map were destroyed, forcing players who landed at these spots to get used to the destruction.

Flyers in Shattered Forest

The once desolate and burned-down area known as the Shattered Forest has now become the nesting ground for Flyers.

As a result of this change, the forest is now lush with foliage and new plant-life again, along with a new outpost that could give players more incentive to roam through the area.

Despite being around for a while now, the infamous code 100 error continues to cause problems in Apex Legends and we’ve got all the info you need to address it.

What is the code 100 error in Apex Legends?

The Code 100 Error has been annoying Apex Legends players since early 2020; the error relates to players being unable to ‘complete their EA Account sign in,’ which is particularly annoying for players as EA have not yet noted the issues, much less acknowledged that they have their own fix coming.

Players have come up with a temporary fix of their own, with the remedy being pretty much the same regardless of whether you play the popular title on PC, Xbox, or PlayStation. You can find the fix for each respective platform below.

Respawn Entertainment / EA GamesThe Code 100 error is stopping Apex Legends players from helping teammates as Lifeline.

How to fix Apex Legends code 100 Error on Xbox One & Series X/S

The temporary fix, which has been a success for most players, revolves around being able to change your DNS [Domain Name System] server to a public DNS service, which has its own numbered code.

To make the fix work on Xbox, go into your network settings and tweak a few things:

  1. Go to Settings – Network, Advanced Settings, DNS Settings
  2. Change DNS settings to the following:
  3. Primary DNS:
  4. Secondary DNS:
  5. Save settings and return to Apex Legends

You may have to restart the game for the updated settings to make a change.

Windows CentralThe network settings for Xbox One are slightly tucked away – but you’ll be back playing Apex in no time.

How to fix Apex Legends code 100 Error on PS4 & PS5

Again, fixing the error on either PlayStation console is pretty similar to Xbox but there are a couple more steps to follow:

  1. Go to Settings » Network » Set Up Internet Connection.
  2. Select which connection you use – be it WiFi or LAN Cable
  3. Select ‘custom’ and enter the following settings:
    • IP Address Settings: Automatic
    • DHCP Host Name: Do Not Specify
    • DNS Settings: Manual
    • Primary DNS:
    • Secondary DNS:
    • MTU Settings: Automatic
    • Proxy Server: Do Not Use

Save these settings and then return to your home screen.  Like on Xbox, you may have to close the Apex Legends application and start it up again for the changes to take effect.

How to fix Apex Legends code 100 Error on PC

The good news is that there is a fix for code 100 on PC, the bad news is that it takes a bit longer to do that on console. That said, if you follow these steps, you should be able to bypass the error.

  1. On PC, hit the Win + R keys together, opening the command box
  2. There, type in ncpa.cpl and wait for ‘Network Connections’ to appear
  3. On Network Connections, head to the internet connection you operate on and right-click it
  4. Once that right-click menu open, select properties
  5. After the properties menu opens, find Internet Protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4) and select properties – which is towards the bottom right-hand side of the box
  6. There, select ‘Use the following DNS server addresses’ and type in:
  7.  Preferred DNS server:
  8. Alternate DNS server:
  9. Once done, select OK in the bottom right-hand corner. Once the box disappears, restart your PC and allow the changes to take place.

So, there you have it, that’s how you fix the Code 100 Error on old-gen and next-gen consoles, as well as PC.
