Apex Legends players have been running into a new issue, the Code 100 Error, that is preventing them from being able to drop into games of Respawn Entertainment’s popular battle royale.
The Code 100 Error has been annoying Apex Legends players for a few days. The error relates to players being unable to ‘complete their EA Account sign in,’ which is particularly frustrating for players as EA have not yet noted the issues, much less acknowledged that they have their own fix coming in an update.
Players have already devised a temporary fix of their own, with the remedy being pretty much the same regardless of whether you play the popular title on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 or PC. You can find the fix for each respective platform below.
The temporary fix, which has been a success for many 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, you have to head into your network settings and rejig a few things. However, you won’t need to be a tech wiz to make it work - you’ll just have to follow our below step-by-step guide.
You may have to restart the battle royale game for the updated settings to make a change.
Again, fixing the error on PlayStation is pretty similar to Xbox but there are a few more steps to follow as it’s not just about changing the DNS numbers.
Save these settings and then return to your home screen. Like on Xbox, you may have to select ‘close application’ on Apex Legends, if it is running, to get the updated settings to take over what the game had been operating with.
Being able to get the workaround working on PC takes a bit longer than it’s console counterparts. Again, though, following our step-by-step guide, you’ll have the issue fixed in no time and be back dropping into Kings Canyon.
So, there you have it, that’s how you fix the Code 100 Error on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. Once you’ve got it fixed, head on back into Kings Canyon and try to become an Apex Champion.
