Frustrating Apex Legends bug isn’t letting players exit respawn ships

A frustrating new bug is getting in Apex Legends players’ way when they’re trying to exit the respawn dropship and rejoin their team, trapping them with no escape instead.

Usually, when your teammates recover your banner and take it to a beacon, you should be good to go as soon as you drop in (unless an enemy team is waiting to ambush you).

That’s what makes this latest bug so strange and frustrating at the same time, since there’s no way for a player to avoid getting stuck while respawning, with how legends automatically run out of the ship.

Well… i think apex hate me from r/apexlegends

The above clip of the glitch was posted to Reddit by user MrGuille, and based on the series of very unfortunate events it contains, it does seem like the game has a vendetta against this player in particular.

As MrGuille prepares to drop in with Caustic, against all odds, the King’s Canyon loot ship descends at the exact same time, getting in the way of the opening where you drop in from.

Instead of falling down and joining their team, Caustic gets trapped inside the model of the ship, and is unable to escape despite jumping, sliding, and climbing around.

Despite being trapped, there doesn’t seem to be anything that would kill or eliminate the player, until the ring eventually closes in on them or you decide to call it quits.

Unfortunately, MrGuille didn’t test whether or not it was possible to send Caustic’s traps outside of the area. If you were stuck there, at least it would be entertaining to drop gas on top of unsuspecting enemies.

We’re pretty sure this isn’t how respawns in Apex are supposed to work.

The good news is that whether or not Respawn devs are aware of the bug, it’s a pretty easy one to avoid. All you have to do is tell your teammate to avoid incoming ships when they’re trying to bring you back.

But it would be entertaining to test and see whether or not you can actually turn the Supply Ships into a Caustic-powered chemical warfare bomber before it’s hopefully patched out.

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.

How to fix Apex Legends code 100 Error on Xbox One & Series X/S

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.

Windows CentralThe network settings for Xbox One are slightly tucked away – but you’ll be back playing Apex in no time.

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.
