Maybe keep away from Loba for a little while longer Apex Legends fans; the Translocating Thief’s bracelet glitch is still appearing “often,” and has even reportedly spread to Kings Canyon, despite Respawn’s best efforts to fix the issue with a server-side update on July 7.

Recently, Loba has been rendered ineffective on World’s Edge, after the Lost Treasures event accidentally muddled up her code. As a result, the Portuguese thief’s tactical ability ‘Burglar’s Best Friend’ was misfiring on the Season 3 map.

Respawn confirmed soon after they “were aware” of the issue, and revealed the Loba glitch had been caused by “World’s Edge-specific code triggers.” On July 7, they shipped an update designed to squash it, once and for all.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like everything has gone according to plan. In fact, players are now reporting the same teleporting issue appearing on Kings Canyon too. That’s a big problem because most ranked games are hosted there.

One annoyed player, ‘Reinjecto,’ confirmed they had seen Loba’s ring glitch “often” on Kings Canyon post-patch, with most instances happening “around buildings.” ‘CaptainMayo95,‘ another disgruntled fan, warned in the update’s Reddit thread that Loba was “still as broken as before the patch.”

Loba is reportedly still having issues with her tactical ability after the latest Apex Legends patch.

These reports are a little confusing because they don’t exactly line up with Jason McCord’s comments on the problem. Respawn’s design director suggested all the current Loba issues had been caused by World’s Edge-based triggers.

“Triggers are done a little differently on World’s Edge… it’s the same user-facing functionality, just authored a slightly different way,” the Apex developer explained. “[Then] the code changed and broke her bracelet for those specific World’s Edge triggers.”

One reason the problem could have spread is the fact Kings Canyon got a bit of a facelift as Apex returned to the original map in Season 5. If the new map version shares code with the World’s Edge design, Loba’s ring could glitch on both.

The frustrating Loba ring glitch issues seems to have spread to Kings Canyon as well.

On July 1, when McCord first flagged that a patch was on the way, he admitted the devs had considered flicking the switch on Loba for a bit to solve the issue. They made the call not to so that players could still “play her if they wanted.”

It might just be time for Respawn to bench the Translocating Thief for a while. The bug seems to be getting worse, if player reports are anything to go off. Dexerto was only able to replicate the bug twice, but that’s still more than zero, and it does seem to be making Loba pretty unplayable.

For now, maybe hold off playing Loba in ranked queues. If you still can’t stay away from the feisty Portuguese thief that’s fine, but stick to casual lobbies; a failed teleport won’t feel as bad if it’s in a fun, non-ranked game.

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.
