Apex Legends players have been mastering the game’s movement since it launched on February 4, which has led to an unusual approach to using Pathfinder’s Zipline to get the jump on unsuspecting enemies.

Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale was met with massive success during its initial launch period. Now it seems like the game’s community are starting to hone their skills with individual Legends, resulting in incredible new tactics being discovered.

In a Reddit post, user ‘br0000d’ showed how to mix up their movement while using a Zipline to close the gap against an opposing player, while leaving them guessing on where to shoot.

Respawn EntertainmentPathfinder has always been a favorite among players to get around the map.

In the clip, br0000d is locked in a long-range fight against a Mirage when the Redditor finds the opportune moment to use their Zipline to get up close and personal to finish them off.

Typically, using a Zipline gives enemies an excellent idea of where you’re going to be since it’s a basic A-to-B ride. But br0000d perfected their attachment timing which made the enemy player shooting at him hilariously guess where to aim next.

The Pathfinder can be seen hoping from on side of the Zipline’s rope to the other in a constant and fluid pace. All the while, the enemy Mirage is frantically trying to line up a shot before the Pathfinder closes in on them.

Although it looks simple, attaching and reattaching while bobbing left and right can take some practice, since it would have taken br0000d only one mistake to miss their Zipline and be left in the open to get cleaned up.

More ways to mix up movement in Apex Legends

Players just starting their conquests in King’s Canyon might think the characters’ movements feel clunky or slow. But the trick to staying alive longer in Apex Legends is to use various techniques to stay one step ahead of the competition.

In the game’s tutorial, players learn how to slide and that’s an invaluable way to pick up speed for an attack or to retreat.

Similarly, wall jumping can go a long way to getting yourself out of a tricky situation. Even though the more agile Legends will have a better time getting around the battlegrounds, every character has some way of mixing up their movement stay alive longer.

Mastering different techniques to get around can lead to a better experience in Apex Legends, and awesome clips like the one br0000d showed.

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.
