Are leaderboards coming to Apex Legends? Respawn respond

A common request for Apex Legends among fans is a leaderboards system. Respawn responded to that request.

Apex Legends has been hugely successful since it launched in February, but there are still a variety of features that could be added to improve the game.

Drew McCoy, Project Lead at Respawn Entertainment, answered fan questions on Twitter and responded to someone asking if Apex will ever be adding leaderboards so they could track their wins better.

Will Apex Legends add leaderboards in the future?

While McCoy didn’t rule out the possibility of Respawn adding leaderboards in the future, he didn’t give a definitive yes or no answer.

“Keep requesting features and things you’d like to see in the game,” he said cryptically. “We are definitely listening. Just keep talking to us and we’ll keep adding.

The current way for players to track their wins, kills, etc. are to do so through the trackers on individual characters. 

Of course, this isn’t an ideal way to track things so the implementation of leaderboards is a no-brainer for those who want to track those stats. 

Leaderboards aren’t a necessity for players to enjoy a battle royale game but they certainly can’t hurt. If enough players request them, it seems unlikely Respawn will be able to ignore adding them.

A good place for fans to make requests is the Apex Legends subreddit, something that Respawn regularly browses.

Will Apex Legends add a competitive mode?

McCoy says he wants to see players play competitively but there’s currently not a whole lot to say about the future of esports for Apex.

“We have a desire for players to play our game at such high levels, but currently we don’t have plans to announce for any competitive scene,” McCoy tweeted. “But we definitely do keep our eyes on what people are doing and what they’re asking about.”

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.
