A clever trick has been found with Crypto’s Drone in Apex Legends, allowing the Surveillance Expert to infinitely slide in Respawn’s battle royale title.

Crypto has one of the most unique ability kits in Apex Legends, equipped with a drone for scouting and spying on his opponents in the arena, although he has little when it comes to movement or combat abilities.

However, Crypto mains appear to have found a new trick with the Legend, which can increase his movement speed, allowing him to get away from any fight with an infinite slide mechanic.

A new exploit has been found with Crypto’s drone in Apex Legends.

While the distance of a slide, in Apex Legends, is usually determined by momentum and whether or not a player is going downhill, a simple trick with Crypto’s drone seems to ignore all physics.

The bizarre mechanic was shared by u/thisisrhubarb on July 1, demonstrating that activating Crypto’s drone while sliding will continue the Legend on his path until he hits an object or wall.

Although the clip features Crypto initially sliding down a hill, it looks like it can be done on any surface, but it may be harder to time the drone use during smaller slides.

CRYPTO PROTIP: Not sure if this has been discussed before, but if you activate your drone while sliding, you will continue sliding until you reach an object. from apexlegends

This simple trick could be a great help to Crypto players, allowing the character to gain some distance between himself and his opponents following a fight.

It is worth noting that it can be difficult to keep up with where Crypto’s slide takes him, after pulling out the drone mid-slide, so players will have to hope their runway is clear after using this trick.

While the exploit also seems to have its downsides, it is unknown whether or not this is a feature that was intended to be added to Crypto by the Respawn devs.

Crypto looks to play a big part in the future of Apex Legends’ storyline, with a recent teaser featuring the Legend’s sister reaching out to him through one of the bunkers.

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.
