With characters as unique as those featured in Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends, there is massive scope for creativity when it comes to concept skins and outfits. Here are some of the best ones from the past month.

Cosplaying and artwork have been incredibly popular in the Apex Legends community since its launch back in 2019, with fans flexing their creative muscles and sharing their ideas.

Here, we’ve rounded up the best of the best skin concepts from June, as fans brainstorm ideas for how their favorite Legends could be re-skinned.

First up is this incredible Loba concept from u/Wolfdawgartcorner, which crosses the High Society Thief with Little Red Riding Hood, making a truly frightening skin. Many commented on its aesthetic similarity to Revenant, ironic given their hatred for one another in Apex Legends’ lore.

The next skin concept is another dark twist, this time focusing on the friendly robot Pathfinder. It’s a great subversion of his genial character, and makes for a dark, fatalistic skin.

The creator – u/PaperScythe_MXR – even named it “Death Finder”, reflecting the morbid approach to the Forward Scout.

The concept is a mind-blowing take on Pathfinder.

Next up is another gruesome take, this time on the deathly Revenant. From artist u/’ThatpersonKyle’ , it is described as a “grim” take on the already gothic, skeletal legend. The skeleton is highlighted to a greater degree, complemented by deep blues in Revenant’s robes.

Next up is a bee-inspired Wattson look, named the Honey Queen skin. From Wattson fan Hattori_Handsome, it makes use of gold and black stripes, even offering an alternate for her electric fences.

Our final skin concept is of Gibraltar, the gentle giant who has forced his way into Apex Legends relevancy after a rough first year. Here, the aforementioned Redditor (Hattori_Handsome) gives Gibraltar a Japanese make-over, channeling a vivid red outfit and traditional kumadori stage make-up.

The Gibraltar skin is dominated by deep reds and golds.

That rounds off our favorite Apex Legends skin concepts from June! It just goes to show the lengths some talented fans will go to in order to engage with their favorite games.

Whether Respawn will ever add the ability for fans’ skins to make their way into Apex Legends remains to be seen, but the appetite for such a feature is clearly present in the community.

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.
