Apex Legends players are always looking for ways to be a step ahead of the pack in Kings Canyon and this new Wraith portal trick could do just that. 

The new battle royale title, which was released with much fanfare on February 4, has surged in popularity ever since with many players intrigued about the functionalities of each character. 

There are eight Legends in the game right now, but only one of them can travel between voids in close quarter combat and that’s Wraith. 

RespawnWraith, one of the playable characters from Apex Legends.

While that is one of the legend’s standard moves in Apex Legends, a recent post to the game’s subreddit from darkdonu12 shows how entering the void before jumping into a portal can potentially bamboozle your opponents. 

In the clip below, the player uses the void and rushes towards the portal. For those that aren’t aware, Wraith can’t enter the portal if they’re inside the void – and that’s part of the trick. That won’t stop other players from thinking that they should jump inside the portal right behind you. 

TIL that you can’t portal while already “in the void”, but apparently the other guy thought I could, resulting in this accidental 200 iq play. from r/apexlegends

When they realize that you’ve not travelled through the portal with them, there’s a chance that they will head back to come find you where you could have a clear shot at point blank range. 

Of course, this tactic won’t work every time but it could definitely be worth a try in tight situations. Do remember that entering the void while intending to use a portal will not work, though.

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.
