Apex Legends players have uncovered an exploit with Octane’s Stim ability and his Holo Spray that seemingly allows the daredevil to get an even bigger speed boost than normal. 

Even though Apex Legends Season 6 has brought Rampart, countless map changes, cosmetics, and changes to the loot pool, it has also brought a few problems along with it as well. 

While players have been quick to find exploits with using Rampart’s turret, there are also bugged skins, and audio issues that are running rampant during matches. 

However, fans have also uncovered a new exploit that allows Octane to get an even greater speed boost than normal while using his Stim ability.

The high-speed Daredevil is one of Apex’s most popular characters.

While the high-speed daredevil already gets a decent boost while his Stim is activated, players have found that if they time a Holo Spray at the right time, Octane’s speed boost appears to be even greater than normal. 

As Reddit user Benavas explains, by timing the ability and holo spray together just as Octane’s previous Stim is just about to run out, they can carry on running for a little bit longer – chaining Stims together to run across the map.

Obviously, it can be pretty difficult to time right but getting the timing spot on means that Octane would become a pretty elusive target if the player is able to chain one after another. Though, if he is down pretty low on health, you could take him down with a pinpoint shot.

Given that it could present a pretty big problem for players who fighting against Octane, Respawn might just have to patch this in the coming weeks. 

As of writing, the devs have confirmed that they’re working on fixing the “useless” knockdown shields, but this problem hasn’t been added to the list, so we’ll just have to wait and see what they do in regards to it.

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.
