One Apex Legends data miner has uncovered two new Flyers in the game’s files that might just confirm the addition of a Player vs Environment mode. 

Since the start of Apex Legends Season 2, fans have been given hints about new legends, new map changes, and the possibility of being attacked by the environment. This PVE aspect has looked an increasingly likely addition since game files for giant spiders were uncovered

Other data miners even went as far as finding other files that hinted at players being able to protect themselves from a non-player attack in the near future. However, none of that has come to fruition just yet. Despite that though, one data miner has uncovered a new set of files that might have given the biggest hint yet about another PVE attacker from the skies.

Respawn Entertainment / EA GamesApex Legends players may soon have to worry about being attacked by Flyers.

According to @That1MiningGuy, a well-known Apex Legends leaker, there are in-game files for two brand new flyers – with one already being showcased in the Season Two: Battle Charge trailer. 

That already seen Flyer, which attacked Wattson in the trailer, is a Blue-colored monster without a name. However, the second one, a Yellow beast with the name ‘French Fry’ is seemingly brand new as it hasn’t been shown off just yet. 

Twitter:  @That1MiningGuyThe unnamed Blue Flyer has already been seen in Apex Legends’ season two trailer.

That1MiningGuy even went as far as being able to render the animations of the ‘French Fry’ flyer to show how it might look in-game. 

While fans may have been left questioning what these Flyers will do, and when they’re set to join the game, Reddit user FrozenFroh – who has dug into the lore of the game since it’s release – offered a few hints. 

“Well, the Blue one attacks Wattson in S2 Trailer, so maybe aggressive?,” they stated on the first flyer. They added: “French Fry strings make it seem that its caged somewhere and will escape.”

As ever, until Respawn make an annoucement or you find yourself fighting these Flyers in-game, it’s best to take this leak with a pinch of salt.

It still remains to be seen if the developers truly have plans for these new Flyers, or if they are perhaps leftover code from an earlier idea and their focus has gone elsewhere.

Despite being around for a while now, the infamous code 100 error continues to cause problems in Apex Legends and we’ve got all the info you need to address it.

What is the code 100 error in Apex Legends?

The Code 100 Error has been annoying Apex Legends players since early 2020; the error relates to players being unable to ‘complete their EA Account sign in,’ which is particularly annoying for players as EA have not yet noted the issues, much less acknowledged that they have their own fix coming.

Players have come up with a temporary fix of their own, with the remedy being pretty much the same regardless of whether you play the popular title on PC, Xbox, or PlayStation. You can find the fix for each respective platform below.

Respawn Entertainment / EA GamesThe Code 100 error is stopping Apex Legends players from helping teammates as Lifeline.

How to fix Apex Legends code 100 Error on Xbox One & Series X/S

The temporary fix, which has been a success for most players, revolves around being able to change your DNS [Domain Name System] server to a public DNS service, which has its own numbered code.

To make the fix work on Xbox, go into your network settings and tweak a few things:

  1. Go to Settings – Network, Advanced Settings, DNS Settings
  2. Change DNS settings to the following:
  3. Primary DNS: 8.8.8.8
  4. Secondary DNS: 8.8.4.4
  5. Save settings and return to Apex Legends

You may have to restart the game for the updated settings to make a change.

Windows CentralThe network settings for Xbox One are slightly tucked away – but you’ll be back playing Apex in no time.

Again, fixing the error on either PlayStation console is pretty similar to Xbox but there are a couple more steps to follow:

  1. Go to Settings » Network » Set Up Internet Connection.
  2. Select which connection you use – be it WiFi or LAN Cable
  3. Select ‘custom’ and enter the following settings:
    • IP Address Settings: Automatic
    • DHCP Host Name: Do Not Specify
    • DNS Settings: Manual
    • Primary DNS: 8.8.8.8
    • Secondary DNS: 8.8.4.4
    • MTU Settings: Automatic
    • Proxy Server: Do Not Use

Save these settings and then return to your home screen.  Like on Xbox, you may have to close the Apex Legends application and start it up again for the changes to take effect.

How to fix Apex Legends code 100 Error on PC

The good news is that there is a fix for code 100 on PC, the bad news is that it takes a bit longer to do that on console. That said, if you follow these steps, you should be able to bypass the error.

  1. On PC, hit the Win + R keys together, opening the command box
  2. There, type in ncpa.cpl and wait for ‘Network Connections’ to appear
  3. On Network Connections, head to the internet connection you operate on and right-click it
  4. Once that right-click menu open, select properties
  5. After the properties menu opens, find Internet Protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4) and select properties – which is towards the bottom right-hand side of the box
  6. There, select ‘Use the following DNS server addresses’ and type in:
  7.  Preferred DNS server: 8.8.8.8
  8. Alternate DNS server: 8.8.4.4
  9. Once done, select OK in the bottom right-hand corner. Once the box disappears, restart your PC and allow the changes to take place.

So, there you have it, that’s how you fix the Code 100 Error on old-gen and next-gen consoles, as well as PC.
