Respawn producer Josh Medina has revealed that changes will be made to the legendary Knockdown Shield’s self resurrection capabilities following demand from Apex Legends players.

Apex Legends maintains a tier-based looting system with different colors used to signify the strength of weapons or armor, with all legendary items marked with a gold tint.

As well as providing more protection than other gear, legendary armor pieces can come with unique passive abilities that can give players the edge in a tough situation.

Apex Legends players with a legendary knockdown shield are given the chance to self resurrect once they’ve been knocked, however, not all players are happy with the current state of the passive.

TSM pro player Reps called for changes to the self revive, suggesting that it should only be possible to use once one of your teammates is still alive in the arena.

“Make self rez only work if at least 1 of your teammates is alive. Maybe increase the speed of using it slightly. Actually so sick of this item in competitive,” he explained, revealing frustrations with the legendary shield.

Reps’ teammate Albralelie also highlighted that the self revive kits could cost you quite a lot in the late game, with some final kills and placements not counting due to opponents having this Legendary shield.

Respawn making changes to self-revive

Respawn has been aware of the potential problems that the legendary knockdown shield can cause, with Apex Legends dev Josh Medina explaining that changes are coming soon.

While it is still unclear what the exact changes Respawn has planned are, it is likely to address some of the problems that players have been having with this passive ability.

It’s possible that they follow the pro players’ advice and speed it up while also requiring a teammate still be alive. However, what competitive players want and what casual players want are often two different things.

Respawn are now tasked with making a change that suits all types of players, which is always a daunting task.

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.
