Apex Legends pro Dizzy shows how to combo Octane’s Ultimate for quicker rotations

NRG’s Apex Legends star Coby ‘dizzy’ Meadows routinely sets the bar for impressive feats in the battle royale game, and is now doing the same with its latest character, Octane.

The battle royale’s lineup of unique Legends have relatively straightforward powers, but the game gives a lot of creative leeway for their abilities to make something more out of their uses.

Dizzy was able to do just that when trailing behind a firefight that was starting to break out, leading him to get imaginative with Octane’s Launch Pad to quickly close the gap.

Respawn EntertainmentSome players were initially underwhelmed by Octane’s Ultimate, but a bit of creativity goes a long way for making it a powerful tool to have.

As usual, dizzy was on a ravenous hunt for kills in a match, and while one battle was dying down, he heard another not too far off starting to ramp up.

Though it initially appeared like dizzy would be late for the new engagement, he decided to give an old Launch Pad he’d put down prior to good use.

After lining up where he wanted to go, dizzy threw down a new Launch Pad on top of his old one, which made it go flying forward – but the play wasn’t over.

Dizzy held W after throwing down the new ult, which sent him in the exact same trajectory as the Launch Pad. When the pad landed on the ground, dizzy soon followed, allowing him to take another spring into the sky in quick succession.

Before his stream knew it, dizzy had passed up his teammate who was already in hot pursuit, and led his squad into the fight.

The inventive use of his Ultimate let him make an insanely quick rotation that caught an opposing squad off guard.

After a few more quick battles, dizzy managed to add yet another Champion screen to his collection.

Though Octane has barely been released, it seems like the young Apex pro is already synergizing with the new Legend which is producing incredible new plays.

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.
