Apex Legends fans are a notoriously suspicious lot, dissecting every new asset that’s coming to the game for hints about upcoming content. This time, a new loading screen message has fans on alert for Season 4 hints.

The new hint comes in the form of a loading screen within Apex Legends and one that depicts Skyhook Tower in some sort of peril. This led Reddit detectives to immediately jump to conclusions.

“If this is real, bye-bye skyhook tower,” u/ProyalMC said. “Crypto’s ready for it to go. Map updates make me think there’s this next season and then there’s the even next season, then Kings Canyon back?”

The return of the original game map has long been hinted at by Apex Legends developers, even as the popularity of the new World’s Edge map continues to grow throughout Season 3. However, many have expected that this won’t happen until the new season launches, which has yet to be announced by EA and Respawn.

However, a game designer from Respawn going by the name SpamminBandies thinks fans may be jumping the shark with this one.

RespawnThis is the image that started the speculation in the first place.

“It’s the new fallback image for if something failed to load,” he said on the Apex Legends subreddit.

Despite the message, fans were quick to disagree, and even think he was hiding something important.

“I see through the lies of the Jedi,” one Reddit user said in response. “There’s more than meets the eye.”

Many other users agreed and thought that this new image was an easter egg of some kind. Whether this screen turns out to be a teaser for the upcoming new season or not remains to be seen.

The existence of Revenant as the next Legend in Apex Legends was leaked months ago, including supposedly his full lore and set of abilities at the time. Of course, EA and Respawn have yet to officially confirm the character is coming to the game, but he has been spotted in-game as the character behind the Shadowfall LTM.

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.
