Apex Legends players discover game-breaking Bloodhound glitch

For a battle royale game featuring thousands of players a day, Apex Legends has a surprisingly low number of bugs. That doesn’t mean it’s completely absent of them and this Bloodhound bug is potentially game-breaking.

Apex Legends is the hot commodity on the battle royale market right now and is the first true competitor Fortnite has had in quite some time.

The game was able to beat Fortnite to many major milestones and is in the midst its inaugural Season 1, which features a Battle Pass full of unlockables for players to grind. 

While Apex Legends certainly has less noticeable bugs than Fortnite, there are still some major issues plaguing the game.

The latest glitch seems to happen more often on Bloodhound and completely wipes out the HUD where you would normally find shield and health packs. Fans first drew attention to this bug in a Reddit thread where players shared their experiences with the bug.

This might be a major Bloodhound problem

It sounds like this bug persists across PC, PS4 and Xbox One and can affect anyyone across all platforms.

The image above is a recreation of what it looks like in game. The original author wrote that they experienced this bug the most on Bloodhound, something that was backed up by other commenters.  

“I’ve ran into this bug a lot, mostly when I’m playing Bloodhound,” Reddit user koelol said. “Think it’s most prevalent during his ult. Makes it really annoying when I’m trying to quickly heal up and my hud is invisible so I can’t even tell what I have.”

The bug doesn’t seem widespread enough to force Respawn to release a hotfix immediately but the problem is visible enough where something should be done about it in future patches.

Apex Legends isn’t quite on the level of Fortnite where it receives updates weekly, but it is possible we can get there if the game continues to remain as popular 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.
