Apex Legends players have uncovered a spot inside Labs that is sending their game into a spin and crashing repeatedly – leading them to be a free kill for enemy players.

At the start of Apex Legends Season 5, Kings Canyon’s Singh Labs – more commonly referred to as just Labs – saw a number of changes to both its interior and exterior in order to make it a “viable landing spot.”

As a result of the changes, the area is now a haven for players who are looking to get into early fights – even if they can’t find much loot and have to melee each other. However, a new problem has arisen with a spot inside that is apparently causing players’ games to repeatedly crash.

Lots of Kings Canyon has changed in Apex Legends Season 5, but some areas have stayed the same.

The new issue was pointed out by Reddit user WackyHat, who showcased a video from a recent trios game on Kings Canyon. As their trio was sat inside Labs, you’d be forgiven for thinking their video was frozen as there was barely any movement.

Though, as the trio shuffled towards a certain corner, WackyHat was sent back to the main menu and greeted with an error message. Even though they were able to rejoin their teammates the Redditor watched on as they were also disconnected.

As WackyHat jumped back into the corner once more, their game was frozen – seemingly on their way to another disconnection.

So uhh me and my squad were just vibin in the labs and we went to this corner and got kicked multiple times from apexlegends

As the Redditor noted that it had happened a few more times to their team later, others pointed out that they’d experienced similar problems inside Labs – leading to multiple crashes for themselves and their teammates.

Others noted that it could be a problem with weapons and death boxes being too close to the wall that is sending the game into a spin.

However, regardless of what is causing the issue, it is certainly one that Respawn will want to investigate.

If players have to avoid a certain part of the map for the fear of crashing, that could have some pretty big ramifications on matches – especially when it comes to having a potentially bugged spot inside the safe zone.

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.
