Apex Legends players expose invisible hiding spot on Kings Canyon

Apex Legends players have uncovered a pretty big bugged spot on Kings Canyon that allows them to sit and hide inside the rock face towards Slum Lakes and shoot while not being able to take

damage. 

Like any other battle royale, there are plenty of different playstyles within Apex Legends. Some players prefer to go all out and rack up kills right from the drop, while others will use different abilities to hang back and move in with the edge of the safe zone – focusing on winning and high placements, rather than eliminations.

However, a new bugged spot on Kings Canyon is allowing those slow playing squads to take things to a whole new level by hiding inside one of the mountains that sits between Slum Lakes and Destroyed Cascades.

The new season of Apex Legends has given way to new character, map changes, and more.

The new location was pointed out by Reddit user itsjustblob, who showcased a video from a recent match of theirs – claiming that an opposing squad were “abusing” the glitched spot in question. 

As the video showed, itsjustblob became aware of a squad being close to them, but they were actually unable to see them until they got up close and personal with the mountain. The player attempted to fire through the rock face but their shots were wasted, so instead, they jumped up inside the glitched spot to take the team head-on.

Facing a full squad that were more than happy just to sit there, the Gibraltar user backed away after taking some serious damage before being chased by the opposing team as they came out of their hidey-hole. 

Itsjustblob also noted that they’d seen the spot taken up by other players on streams, and that’s why they were aware of the enemies deciding to hide up there. 

Obviously, hiding spots aren’t uncommon in Apex, but when they’re something that players can abuse, it becomes something that Respawn will likely investigate.

As of writing, the developers haven’t made a note of it on their Trello board of problems, so it remains to be seen as to whether or not the spot will be patched up anytime soon.

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.
