Apex Legends console players may soon have a fix for their annoying cursor bug that forces them to waste them when trying to manage their loot.

Fortnite Battle Royale.

However, that hasn’t stopped the developers from addressing issues and trying to keep the game as strong as possible with regular updates to problems – be it big or small.

Respawn EntertainmentApex Legends has been a massively successful battle royale title but fallen behind its rivals.

In a post to the Apex Legends subreddit, Avi304, noted that the cursor for managing inventory on console is currently snapping to the side instead of to the middle. This means that players have to take a few extra moments, which could be the difference between being eliminated and surviving, to get the cursor where it needs to be.

Nevertheless, the error was quickly picked up on by JayFresh – a part of the Respawn team – who explained that they would be looking into what was causing the error. “Noted! We’re looking into this, the cursor snapping to center is the intended state,” they replied.

Redditors address other problems

Nevertheless, other members of the subreddit chimed in with potential improvements of their own for the in-game cursor. One, YouLeftTheStoveOn, requested an option to increase the in-menu cursor speed instead of it being reliant on a players sensitivity.

However, the dev didn’t pick up on the response, but that’s not to say that it couldn’t be something that comes to the game in future – especially if enough players have the same idea.

With the start of Apex Legends Season 2 for the game slated for July 2, it remains to be seen just what bug fixes that Respawn address in their next massive update.

What is code:truck error in Apex Legends & how to fix it? Latest from EA

After Apex Legends received its Holo-Day Bash update, many fans are reporting a brand new code:truck error that’s preventing them from entering the game. Here’s what you need to know about the odd server issue that everyone seems to be getting.

Earlier today, the Holo-Day Bash update went live for Apex Legends, which added in a slew of new content, including some skins and a brand new LTM.

Unbeknownst to players, it seems to have added something else to the game that’s causing a lot of people headaches as they try to log-in.

The Apex community is now reporting a new error code:truck when they attempt to log-in, which is causing some major issues and seems to be caused by the Holo-Day Bash update, although this part is a bit unclear. Here’s what you need to know about the error and if there’s anything that can be done to solve it.

What is the code:truck error in Apex Legends

According to the error messages seen by players, either the game itself or the player is “out of sync with the server.” What that actually means is anyone’s guess.

What we do know about code:truck is that it’s preventing people from logging into the game. It’s affecting a large number of people on all platforms, although the exact extent of this is unclear as of the time of this writing.

Hopefully more information will be available soon.

What can be done to fix the code:truck error?

Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be a surefire fix for the error. As of 7:10 EST on December 1, 2020, Electronic Arts and Respawn haven’t released a fix for the bug. That being said, they did comment on the error, saying they are looking into the problem.

Beyond that, however, we have no update as to what’s causing this error for some players, how extensive is the problem, and, most importantly, what the fix is for it.

Over on Reddit, some players are reporting on a few different fixes but none of the them are confirmed. One player reported that they were able to workaround the issue by changing the date and time on their PS4 and few others confirmed its success.

Hopefully a fix becomes available in the near future to avoid it spreading to other people, which would result in the amount of players logging into Apex Legends to plummet.
