Apex Legends: Release date leaked for new L-STAR LMG weapon

The L-STAR light machine gun will be the next brand new weapon introduced in Apex Legends, and its release date has now been leaked.

According to information dug up from game files by the data miners at Gaming INTEL, the L-STAR will be making its debut on March 2, 2019.

Interestingly enough, the date isn’t explicitly stated in the leaked game files, but rather has been deciphered from what appears to be a coded reference.

When the new weapons file was first found and leaked last week, the two weapons listed were the Havoc energy rifle, which had the number 20 imprinted next to it, and the L-STAR, which had a 30.

Since the Havoc was released on February 20, many are theorizing that the 30 signifies the release date for the L-STAR. Of course, since February has only 28 days this year, the “30th” would land on March 2.

Of course, the release date of the Havoc being the same as the number imprinted next to it in the leaked files could simply just be a bizarre coincidence.

However, there are no significant statistics pertaining to the Havoc that are valued at 20, which leaves the prospect of the number being its release date as the most likely theory.

When added, the L-STAR will be the third LMG in the game, joining the Spitfire and Devotion. It’s set to pack a pretty strong punch as it will deal 21 points of damage to the body and 42 points to the head.

A lot of information about the L-STAR has recently been leaked, including its full damage profile, ammo information, and a lot of other detailed statistics and specifications.

How do you feel about a third LMG being added to the game and where do you think it will stack up compared to the other two? Tweet us @Dexerto and let us know your thoughts!

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.
