The latest character to be added to Apex Legends, Wattson, can allow players to set up some insane traps using her tactical ability.

Popular Legends such as Wraith and Pathfinder can often be difficult to counter in-game as their abilities allow for players to have improved mobility, making them hard to pin down for someone playing as Wattson.

However, one player has found the perfect way to make use of the Static Defender’s tactical ability, Perimeter security, in order to set up an unbeatable trap on unsuspecting opponents.

Respawn EntertainmentWattson was the latest character released in Season 2 of Apex Legends.

Wattson’s tactical ability traps are often placed at doorways and narrow locations such as Bunker, although Reddit user, Kossuranta, may have found a better way to set down the Legend’s electrified fences.

In this game, Kossuranta found themselves with a perfect opportunity to lay a trap for their opponents after reaching the safe zone of the Ring and noticing one of Wraith’s Dimensional Rift portals left unattended.

After setting down Wattson’s electric fence next to the Wraith’s portal, which was likely used to help the players into the safe zone quicker, Kossuranta simply sat back and waited for the enemy squad to fall victim to the trap, adding a few extra shots in where necessary and completing the squad wipe.

Wraith is often considered one of the best legends, but this trap counter to the highly-picked Legend’s Ultimate might be just what is needed to even out the playing field.

Wattson was actually hit with a fairly significant nerf in the Voidwalker event, now taking 5% more damage (just like Wraith, Pathfinder, and Lifeline), so becoming a master of her abilities is more important than ever.

More Apex Legends characters are expected to be on their way soon, with leaks of many new Legends abilities such as Rampart and Blisk already coming to light, as well as Crypto who many expected to be released in Season 2.

Although no Legends have been confirmed as of yet, many are expecting the next characters to be released as part of Apex Legends’ Season 3.

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.
