An eagle-eyed Apex Legends player has spotted a mistake in Octane’s new ‘Clocktane’ Legendary skin.

To close out Season 3, Apex players have been treated to the Grand Soirée event, which introduces a variety of Limited-Time Modes, challenges, and new cosmetics.

Among those cosmetics is a spectacular new Legendary skin for Octane called ‘Clocktane’, but Apex player Temphost has noticed a problem with the look.

As the name suggests, the ‘Clocktane’ skin is based around clocks, featuring several pocket watches, cogs, and a central timepiece.

There’s an issue with the clock on Octane’s chest, however: it’s missing a number. The clock features roman numerals, but as Temphost spotted, it skips directly from ‘IX’ (nine) to ‘XI’ (11), leaving out the solitary ‘X’ that should represent 10.

Fortunately for fans who might be frustrated by such an oversight, the developers have already responded to the issue. Respawn artist RSPN_Jeremy not only acknowledged the mistake, but was quick to point the finger at the person responsible – 3D Artist Eric Simard, who created the skin.

If you’re waiting for an update to the skin, however, it could still be a while. The developer gave an estimate of 6-12 weeks before a reworked look might actually appear in the game, explaining that a fix would have to wait for an appropriate patch to be implemented in. For something that’s not affecting gameplay in any way, Respawn won’t rush out an update that could cause further issues down the line.

It does seem, however, as though a fix will eventually come, with RSPN_Jeremy confirming that he’s already seen work being done on the skin. He was careful to emphasize, however, that he has no control over whether the fix ever actually makes it to the live game.

In the meantime, those who can view the mistake as a funny little easter egg can still pick up the otherwise stunning skin for 1,800 Apex Coins, while those who can’t stand to use it knowing about the error will simply have to wait for a fix to arrive.

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.

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.
