A handful of skins and cosmetics have been leaked for an upcoming holiday-themed event in Apex Legends, believed to be the next ‘collection’ event.

With Season 3 of Apex Legends extended beyond the normal end date, all the way until February, it’s important for Respawn Entertainment to keep players engaged for longer, without a new season launch to look forward to.

With the first-ever holiday period coming up for Apex Legends, which launched in February 2019, it’s no surprise that there will be some Christmas-themed content on the way – after all, we already have snow on the new Season 3 map.

As data miners often scavenge through the game files after new updates though, the secrets of what is planned for the event have been leaked, with a host of skins and cosmetics revealed early.

So far, Christmas skins have been leaked for a number of the legends, and presumably, there is one for all eleven of them. Thanks to leakers @iLootGames and @That1MiningGuy, we have an up-close look at these leaked skins.

Octane

Octane is turned into a red-nosed-reindeer for the event.

Mirage is actually rumored to be the centerpiece of this event, with a new location just for him, and he’s getting a nutcracker skin too.

Caustic is becoming Santa Clause himself for the event.

Wattson and Pathfinder

Wattson and Pathfinder haven’t been forgotten about either, as they can be seen in their winter skins alongside Mirage and Octane in this leaked promotional image for the event.

Bangalore

This is the best image leakers have shared so far of the Banglore event skin, and it’s finally one that Bangalore mains can get excited about.

Apex Legends winter cosmetics

This holiday cosmetic drop won’t just be skins either, as weapon charms and new character quips with winter themes have also been leaked.

Prolific data miner That1MiningGuy even leaked a complete look at upcoming cosmetics, as well as the ‘Winter Express’ train LTM mode that looks like it’ll be themed around Mirage.

Also confirmed from the game code was the name of the collection event, and how the items will be acquired.

There’s no date for the start of the event or when the cosmetics will be added, but we can safely presume it will be here in time for December 25 at the very latest.

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: 8.8.8.8
  4. Secondary DNS: 8.8.4.4
  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.

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: 8.8.8.8
    • Secondary DNS: 8.8.4.4
    • 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: 8.8.8.8
  8. Alternate DNS server: 8.8.4.4
  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.
