Apex Legends pro accidentally breaks NDA and reveals Respawn plans

Apex Legends pro Jack ‘NiceWigg’ Martin accidentally broke the terms of a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) with Respawn Entertainment, revealing a possible initiative to fix the game.

Since the game’s release back in February, Respawn have been struggling with player complaints about balance, development times, the lack of esports news around the title, and more, even while the game continues to be popular.

There have been a few problems in the game which have persisted for so long that some fans were routinely critical of Respawn for ignoring the complaints of their player base – making NiceWigg’s NDA mishap a sigh of relief for a lot of people.

Respawn EntertainmentA Respawn dev was quick to note NiceWigg’s lapse in judgement when tweeting about the secret Apex Legends meeting.

In a since-deleted tweet, the Counter Logic Gaming player gave his audiences a heads up as to why he wouldn’t be streaming the following day. One problem: he gave a bit too much information regarding his whereabouts.

“I won’t be live tomorrow because I am going to talk to the Respawn devs tomorrow with a bunch of other pro Apex players about game’s future content, fixes, patches, and more!” he said.

Although the pro didn’t reveal anything too groundbreaking, Producer at Respawn Entertainment Josh Medina still stepped in to remind NiceWigg to read the fine print: “Bro you didn’t read the email completely did you?”

It seems like the pro player must have been given instructions to keep the meeting under wraps, though excitement must have got the better of NiceWigg – resulting in the deleted tweet.

Luckily, it seems like the devs have a sense of humor about this particular case, seeing as the contents of the meeting must be more important than the announcement of it.

Medina gave a light response to a screenshot of the deleted interaction, hopefully indicating that no one’s in trouble – at least outside of the Apex Legends servers.

“Well I’ll talk to him in person and show him what’s up with controller lol,” Medina said, in reference to KBM vs controller debates that spans across multiplayer titles.

Even still, this is a great sign seeing as Respawn has opened its doors to the more competitive players, hopefully to address their longtime worries of the game.

Players like NRG’s Brandon ‘Ace’ Winn and Team Liquid’s Lucas ‘Mendokusaii’ Håkansson routinely express their concerns with the game’s state at various stages.

As unfortunate as NiceWigg’s mishap was, players are at least encouraged that this means Respawn are taking notes from some of its most dedicated players.

“Really happy to see this,” Twitter user ‘Dopluur’ said in response to the deleted tweet. “Making streamers/pros happy will always have major influence over new players and the general community”

More topics of discussion that could stem out of Thursday’s meeting could be a range of motions to sort out the “Apex competitive gaming program” in the near future, something we know the company has been planning for.

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.

How to fix Apex Legends code 100 Error on PS4 & PS5

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.
