Apex Legends Octane cosplayer becomes the ultimate adrenaline junkie

Cosplayer HoltsClawCosplay has stunned fans after he brought Apex Legends’ Octane to life with an incredibly lifelike outfit that looks like it comes right from an in-game screenshot.  

Ever since it released back in February of 2019, Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends has allowed some of the battle royale’s biggest fans to show off their creativity with plenty of impressive ideas and cosplays

Even though it’s set in a futuristic time in some far off worlds, fans have been able to dive right in and bring some of their favorite characters to life. We’ve already plenty of incredible takes on Wraith, a few head-turning Lifeline outfits, and even some pretty impressive Gibraltar efforts but this lifelike Octane cosplay might just be the absolute best of the lot. 

Respawn Entertainment - Apex LegendsOctane quickly became one of the most popular characters in Apex Legends after his release.

Posted by HoltsClawCosplay, the Octane outfits eerily similar to the images that Respawn dropped before he made his debut back in Apex Legends Season One: Wild Frontier. 

The cosplayer perfectly replicated the Legend’s normal base skin, donning an all-green vest, those green and white-brown bottoms – even recreating the little circular and square side pieces that hang on them.

As for the adrenaline junkie legend’s lack of legs, well, there’s some pretty impressive work there too. The cosplayer, obviously, didn’t opt to follow suit and get rid of his legs, but instead worked around that – making it look like he had forged the bionic legs that have become synonymous with any Octane player.

There’s even the perfectly recreated mask that makes the cosplayer look like they’ve managed to pull Octane out of Apex Legends and place him right into the real-world.

Of course, the cosplayer is missing the jump pad and Stim that takes the legend to the next level and helps him secure Apex victories but we’re not going to knock him – he’s already blown our minds as it is.

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.
