Apex Legends after recurring issues with hit registration might have caused his untimely death in a match.

Respawn Entertainment hit on an instant competitor for the stacked battle royale genre when they released Apex Legends on February 4. Though players instantly filled the servers, a surprising amount of bugs have been plaguing the game since launch.

One of the issues that mar gameplay for thousands of players are the incredibly frustrating hit reg in Apex Legends. The persistent bug can make clean shots seemingly disappear from the server which can lead to unfortunate situations like the Doc found himself in.

Respawn EntertainmentHit reg issues have been just one of the many growing issues in Apex Legends.

During a July 30 stream, the Doc could be seen fending off an enemy squad as the fight had been consumed by the shrinking zone. While he was able to dispatch one opponent with his Havoc, he didn’t have much luck with the ensuing battle.

Switching over to his Wingman, the Doc’s aim was on point for the initial shot, hitting the target for 41 damage and not much else.

“What happened to those bullets,” The Doc furiously said. “Where the fuck are those bullets going?! There’s fucking two bullets that they even register. Where were they?! Holy shit. Easy. ”

With both guns having either an empty clip or near-empty magazine, the Doc was quickly eliminated by his foe after being left completely defenseless in the midst of the apparent hit reg issues.

There’s been more than a few problems regarding shots landing on enemies in the game before.

The streamer was quite livid after the whole ordeal, slamming his desk before going into his manic tirade at what he saw as another example of shaky development progress for the game.

Later on the Doc saw a playback of his battle with a more level head to give a proper analysis. While the evidence made him change his tune for a couple of shots, there were still some that seem like they were right on the money to him.

The Two-time wasn’t convinced that all of the missed shots deserved to miss their mark, making it another entry in the backlog of questionable hit registration issues in Apex Legends.

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.
