One thing that separates Apex Legends from other battle royale titles the unique way that the in-game characters are used.

In traditional battle royale games, the characters that players pick to play are often just cosmetic aspects of the game and make no real difference.

However, in Apex Legends, the characters have unique attributes that compliment each others’ skill-sets and makes teamwork that much more important. 

There are a total of eight characters, or ‘Legends’ as they’re called, six of which are available to players right away while two have to be unlocked by playing the game or purchasing. 

  • Bloodhound
  • Gibraltar
  • Lifeline
  • Wraith
  • Pathfinder
  • Bangalore
  • Mirage (unlockable)
  • Caustic (unlockable)

These Legends vary in their main gameplay style and purpose as some have great offensive potential, others are a defensive presence for the team, and a few are the main source of support for teammates. 


  • Tactical Ability – Eye of the Allfather: Briefly reveal hidden enemies, traps, and clues throughout structures in front of you.
  • Passive Ability – Tracker: See tracks left behind by your foes.
  • Ultimate Ability – Beast of the Hunt: Enhances your senses, allowing you move faster and highlighting your prey.


  • Tactical Ability – Dome of Protection: Throw down a dome-shield that blocks attacks for 15 seconds.
  • Passive Ability – Gun Shield: Aiming down sights deploys a gun shield that blocks incoming fire.
  • Ultimate Ability – Defensive Bombardment: Call in a concentrated mortar strike on a marked position.


  • Tactical Ability – D.O.C. Heal Drone: Call your Drone of Compassion to automatically heal nearby teammates over time.
  • Passive Ability – Combat Medic: Revive knocked down teammates faster while protected by a shield wall. Healing items are used 25% faster.
  • Ultimate Ability – Care Package: Call in a drop pod full of high-quality defensive gear.


  • Tactical Ability – Into the Void: Reposition quickly through the safety of void space, avoiding all damage.
  • Passive Ability – Voices from the Void: A voice warns you when danger approaches. As far as you can tell, it’s on your side.
  • Ultimate Ability – Dimensional Rift: Link two locations with portals for 60 seconds, allowing your entire team to use them.


  • Tactical Ability – Grappling Hook: Grapple to get to out-of-reach places quickly.
  • Passive Ability – Insider Knowledge: Scan a survey beacon to reveal the ring’s next location.
  • Ultimate Ability – Zipline Gun: Create a zipline for everyone to use.


  • Tactical Ability – Smoke Launcher: Fire a high-velocity smoke canister that explodes into a smoke wall on impact.
  • Passive Ability – Double Time: Taking fire while sprinting makes you move faster for a brief time.
  • Ultimate Ability – Rolling Thunder: Call in an artillery strike that slowly creeps across the landscape.


  • Tactical Ability – Psyche Out: Send out a holographic decoy to confuse the enemy.
  • Passive Ability – Encore!: Automatically drop a decoy and cloak for five seconds when knocked down.
  • Ultimate Ability – Vanishing Act: Deploy a team of Decoys to distract enemies while you cloak.


  • Tactical Ability – Nox Gas Trap: Drop canisters that release deadly Nox gas when shot or triggered by enemies.
  • Passive Ability – Nox Vision: Allows you to see enemies through your gas.
  • Ultimate Ability – Nox Gas Grenade: Blankets a large area in Nox gas.

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.
