An Apex Legends player found numerous inconsistencies with the bullet travel times on the G7 Scout, Triple Take, Longbow and Kraber that can have wild implications for a player’s shot.

Apex Legends exploded onto the scene garnering over 50 million players in under two months, but the game has run into some problems along its meteoric rise.

In a Reddit post, ‘TinyBabyBread’ revealed that not every shot from the popular rifles make it to their target at the same time.

Respawn EntertainmentThough the Triple Take had some of the better data points, a Respawn dev still didn’t like seeing the variations of time for a shot to land.

The redditor was originally looking for the difference in bullet drop from rifle to rifle when he noticed that there were small irregularities despite firing from the same distance.

“I wanted to know how bullet drop varied between snipers so I did some testing in the training area,” TinyBabyBread said. “While I was analyzing the footage, I noticed that bullet travel time on the same weapon kept changing despite the constant target distance…”

Though TinyBabyBread didn’t originally think his findings were that big of a deal, other commenters quickly changed his perspective, saying: “[Deviations in bullet travel time] seems really noticeable when we’re talking about trying to lead targets. When a target is so small and moving, those milliseconds make a big difference. ”

It’s a good thing TinyBabyBread decided to publish his findings even though he didn’t think much of them, because one Respawn developer was quick to respond to the data.

“We (Respawn) saw this post and are taking it seriously,” RespawnSean said. “It’s definitely not intended behavior for projectiles from the same weapon to take a variable amount of time to hit the same target.”

Shot inconsistencies like these along with the recent lag experienced throughout the game could have big implications on a player’s shot, making it a huge relief that Respawn is looking for ways to fix the problem.

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.

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.

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.
