Incredible Apex Legends Heirloom design could be just what Octane needs

With more and more characters receiving special heirloom sets in Apex Legends, it’s time for Octane to get some much-needed love as well

Wraith, Bloodhound, Pathfinder, and Lifeline all have their own Heirloom Set that includes very rare cosmetic items exclusive to those Legends, but fans are clamoring for the rest of the cast to get some love.

It’s likely this will happen in the future, but it will just take some time. It looks like Respawn plan to go through the original roster first before setting their sights on all of the characters that were game at launch.

Pathfinder is the latest character to get an heirloom set.

In the meantime, fans have taken to designing the heirloom sets themselves, and this look at an Octane bundle is actually incredibly good.

Reddit user HamedAliKhan posted their creation for fans to look at, and it was quickly loved by Apex players, many of them saying it looks like a legit design.

Heirloom idea 2.0 : Octane’s O Tanto from apexlegends

The set would give Octane a new banner pose, complete with a sword and an intro quip. This would be in line with the previous heirlooms we’ve seen, but an argument can be made that this is the best one we’ve seen so far, and it’s not even officially made.

Heirlooms are among the rarest items in all of Apex Legends, considering there’s less than a 1% chance to open one from a pack. Players are guaranteed to obtain at least one set in the first 500 Apex Packs they open, so while it’s not exactly impossible, it can definitely be both very expensive and time consuming.

Who will be the next Legend to get an heirloom set?

When the game first launched, Wraith had an heirloom set ready to go, but the next three have been released with a special event. Bloodhound’s was included in the Iron Crown event, Lifeline’s in Fight or Fright, and Pathfinder’s in the Holo-Day Bash, which wrapped up not too long ago.

This doesn’t mean Octane will need an event to get him, but we’re sure fans wouldn’t be too upset if that was the path Respawn decide to take. Whenever they do decide to create an Heirloom Set for the speed demon Legend, the fan-made concept above would serve as a great reference point.

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.
