Frustrating Apex Legends glitch is making Loba’s Ultimate useless

While Season 5’s Loba might be the new kid on the block in Apex Legends, she’s dropped into battle with a critical issue that could render her Ultimate useless in your next game.

Loba is the latest addition to the ever-expanding Apex Legends lineup, having joined the roster on May 12. After a few short weeks with the Support-type character, players have uncovered a glaring issue with her Ultimate ability.

Upon deploying her ‘Black Market Boutique,’ players should be able to access nearby loot and teleport it to themselves. While the ability usually limits you to just two items, a new glitch is making sure you walk away empty-handed.

Here’s how Loba’s Ultimate should appear in each and every game.

Down to the final three squads in a May 28 game, Reddit user ‘Loch_Ness_Lemons’ was closing in on a win. With Loba’s Ultimate already open for business and the high ground secured, it seemed as though it was their match to lose.

Unfortunately, the game was working against them. The Black Market Boutique appeared to be in a glitched state, with absolutely nothing appearing. Not even a bit ammunition to let you keep up the fight.

Can someone please help explain what happened to Loba’s Ult here? Possible bug? Almost all items disappear, then many show up later. from apexlegends

They closed and reopened the menu, however, the black market inventory still remained empty. As though not a single piece of loot was in the surrounding area, the team was left with no choice but to fend for themselves.

As the ring closed in and squads appeared below, they clutched up and found a few extra eliminations. It wasn’t for another minute before Loba’s Ultimate started functioning again and loot was up for grabs.

Loba’s team was eventually able to close out the game with a win, though the glitch could have easily cost them. Had they no shields or ammo, high ground control would have only helped them survive for so long.

Loba’s Ultimate can pull loot within a 78 meter radius.

There’s no pinning down the exact cause of the issue. It could be completely random and affect Loba players without reason. 

Until an official response is provided from the developers, or a patch is rolled out, Loba may just have to make do without her Ultimate from time to time.

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.
