Apex Legends fan creates awesome concept for new legend

One creative Apex Legends fan has designed a brand new legend complete with abilities that would be an instant game-changer.

The newest Apex Legends character, Octane, was released along with the Season One Battle Pass on Tuesday, March 19.

That hasn’t stopped fans from continuing to come up with their own ideas for legends and their special abilities that could be added to the hit battle royale.

Respawn EntertainmentOctane’s abilities allow for impressive mobility around the map.

The concept was created by Reddit user iArePlayerOne, who used a Wraith concept image from artist Ramzy Kamen as a starting point for what the new character, called ‘Electra’ could look like.

PlayerOne did come up with the abilities for the support character though, like her passive which regenerates her shields based on the damage she’s done to enemies when they get killed.

Electra’s tactical ability would act a lot like Lifeline’s Health Drone, except for armor, and would slowly regenerate shields of allies close to the character.

Her ultimate, EMP, would be incredibly powerful, damaging enemy shields, scrambling their HUDs and making shield cells take longer to use.

Of course, exactly how each of Electra’s abilities works and how much shields they restore would have to be worked out, but the idea of a shield-focused support legend certainly is interesting.

Her EMP ultimate might be a little too powerful with all the effects it has, it would certainly be able to turn the tide in any fight, and probably inspire countless Reddit threads, were it real.

There are rumors of Respawn releasing a second new character sometime during Season One, but when it will happen and what exactly that hero could be or their abilities remain unknown for now.

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.
