Respawn has confirmed a fix for the latest Apex Legends issue relating to Loba and her bracelet is “on its way,” though the Season 5 update patch designed to solve the problem may not ship until at least next week,

Let’s be honest, Loba has been one of the most problematic Apex Legends characters ever added to the battle royale. She debuted at the start of season five, and was soon crashing the game, hacking into new areas, dodging bullets, and plenty more.

Recently, players have discovered one of the most game-breaking of them all: Loba’s teleporting bracelet simply doesn’t work on World’s Edge. Luckily, Respawn is already on the job, with a patch coming “early next week.”

Loba bracelet glitch fix “on the way”

The Apex Legends developers alerted players a solution was on its way on July 1: “We are aware of Loba’s tactical [Burglar’s Best Friend] not always being placed on World’s Edge and we are currently testing a client-side fix for it.”

Respawn game director Jason McCord expanded on the issues soon after, revealing Loba’s newest bug was due to “out of bounds” areas in the World’s Edge code, which is “slightly different” to the Kings Canyon base design.

“Triggers are done a little differently on World’s Edge… same user-facing functionality, just authored a slightly different way,” he explained. “[Then] the code changed and broke her bracelet for those specific WE triggers.”

The good news though, McCord continued, is that it’s already been solved in Respawn’s Apex testing realm. All that is left is to test the fix, which may take a bit of time “because this code touches a lot of parts of the games,” he said.

“We have a US holiday on Friday, so people aren’t working then,” he added. “Realistically, the middle of next week is when we will ship out the fix.”

Loba has been a constant source of Apex Legends bugs and glitches since her Season 5 debut.

Respawn could disable the Translocating Thief

McCord also revealed Respawn had nearly flipped the switch on Loba entirely, and turned her off to fix the issue. They made a call not to though, he said, because the devs knew “players would rather have the option to play her than not.”

Finally, the Apex developer promised fans the new Loba teleporting issue was only contained to World’s Edge. Players “should” be able to play the Translocating Thief in all Kings Canyon playlists without any problems, it seems.

When will the Loba glitch fix go live?

For now, it’s probably best if you avoid picking Loba entirely if you’re loading into matches on World’s Edge. Her ‘Burglar’s Best Friend’ tactical ability is a vital part of her kit, second only to her ultimate. It’s a big blow to have it not work.

Respawn has become renowned for pushing Apex Legends updates on Tuesdays. That means there’s every chance they do the same for this client-side download next week. That would mean, fingers crossed, the issue is solved by July 7.

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.
