A number of Apex Legends players have encountered recurring bugs in the game in some form, but a massive glitch cropping up makes the battle royale an unplayable and chaotic mess.

While Respawn Entertainment have been on a roll with delivering its fan base a ton of content throughout Season 3, players have been noticing a plethora of errors in the game that makes it hard to play, or just outright crashes it.

Since there are players who have grown accustomed to the game’s bugs, when they appear it’s really just a matter of dealing with the issue to get along with their particular match.

Stuttering frames breaks Apex Legends

But some cases get so bad, that it completely derails the game as seen in the “massive” glitch recorded by Reddit user ‘misternuttall’ who was having a bit of trouble making sense of what was going on in the battle royale.

“No Guns, No Respawns, No… Map? Hands down the most fun I’ve ever had with a MASSIVE glitch,” they said.

Even before teams jumped onto the map, players could already tell there was something extremely wrong with how the match loaded up – especially since there wasn’t really a place to visibly land.

Taking a brave leap into the abyss, once people actually made landfall the problems only seemed to exponentially get worse.

Extreme visual bugs were distorting the player’s FOV, making everything stutter and replicate with every passing moment they made.

“New Apex game mode: Moshpit on LSD,” one person joked.

The glitches in Apex Legends have ranged from hilarious and benign to downright broken, but this takes things to a whole new level.

As strange as this instance is, however, it doesn’t seem to be the first of its kind, seeing as some recounted their experience with a similar ordeal.

“Oh I had one like this before,” one user said. “It was due to a very bad server and the whole ranked match ended up being 1 v 1 v 1… [As Wattson], I fenced us a boxing ring, and I ended up second. One of the most lovely matches I’ve played ever.”

It’s strange to think how Respawn would go about fixing this kind of issue, but better sooner than later – unless more players get trapped in the bugged games of Apex Legends.

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.

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.

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.
