Apex Legends devs hint at new undiscovered Star Wars easter egg

Just hours after the Apex Legends community finished their hunt for the firing range easter egg, which brought training dummies to life in the practice yard, Respawn devs have hinted there’s still other secrets hidden in the game.

Apex players across the internet have been caught in an elaborate easter egg hunt over the past few days, after Rayme Vinson dropped hints about secrets hidden in the Firing Range, leading many to go to extreme limits to find the egg.

There was a wash of relief, then, when Reddit user ‘Maddazefc’ discovered the NPC test dummies activation on December 4, bringing the elaborate treasure hunt in Respawn’s battle royale to an end—only for Manny Hagopian to drop another.

Respawn EntertainmentThe Apex community only just found Vinson’s firing range easter egg.

According to the game writer, who worked on Respawn’s Titanfall franchise, as well as Apex and more recently Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, he slipped a little easter egg of his own into the game, right when Fallen Order first released.

Apparently, the new secret, which Hagopian has shared relatively few details on so far, has been right under our noses since at least October, and maybe earlier depending on when the writer got his hands on the code.

“As everyone seems to be excited about easter eggs now, I’m reminded of a Star Wars Jedi one I put in Apex Legends before the launch of Fallen Order,” he admitted on Twitter on December 4. “I wonder if anyone has found it yet…”

It makes sense for there to be a bit of crossover between Respawn’s two flagship games at the moment, especially considering other battle royales like Fortnite are buying into Star Wars hype, and have held crossovers with franchises like the Avengers in the past.

Apart from a leaked Pathfinder skin based around a color-palette change to look like Fallen Order hero Cal Kestis’ sidekick droid BD-1, Apex hasn’t had much to do with Disney’s franchise, which players have been disappointed with considering a huge Star Destroyer was parked above Fortnite’s map during its last event.

Now, it seems like, there’s at least a little slice of Fallen Order hidden somewhere in Apex’s Season 3 adventures, if players can find it.

Just like Vinson and his training program easter egg hints, Hagopian has conceded he may have to give players a few bread crumbs to find the secret that he dropped into the game, starting straight after revealing the existence of the egg.

“Clue one: ‘With 4 he flies toward a future of double,’” the developer revealed, before adding that players shouldn’t expect something as cool as “king Rayme Vinson.” “Keep in mind, I write words for both games.”

This suggested Hagopian has potentially hidden a voice line, or interaction, into the code for one or more of the characters, based around something to do with Fallen Order’s well-received storyline, which he had a hand in creating.

Hagopian has yet to reveal exactly what the hidden Star Wars easter egg is, only that it’s related to Jedi Fallen Order.

The dev has also promised more clues in the coming days if players haven’t been able to find the egg yet, so keep an eye out if you want to get a bit of help in finding the slice of Star Wars hidden somewhere in World’s Edge and Apex’s third season.

And with the fact that both Vinson and Hagopian have dropped their own eggs into the game, hunters should be on the lookout for clues from other developers—if there’s two to find, there’s probably more already hidden.

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.

How to fix Apex Legends code 100 Error on Xbox One & Series X/S

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.

Windows CentralThe network settings for Xbox One are slightly tucked away – but you’ll be back playing Apex in no time.

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.
