One of the most ridiculous bugs in the history of Apex Legends left everyone free-falling through a neverending rainbow.

There’s never any shortage of quirky and amusing bugs coming from Respawn Entertainment’s popular battle royale, however this insane glitch might be the most outlandish to date.

From an odd Wingman oversight to an outright game-breaking bug caused by a Black Friday skin, typically Apex issues impact individual players. This recent glitch took things to an entirely new level however as everyone in the lobby was impacted by the hilarious spectacle.

Respawn Entertainment - Apex Legends Players often sail through the skies leaving a colorful trail behind them.

Showcased through a December 8 post from Reddit user ‘HaveSomeOatmeal,’ a ridiculous bug left each and every player in a match floating through an endless stream of rainbow-esque visuals.

“A beautiful aerial ballet of death” is how the theatrics were described as dozens of players circled in the sky and left behind jets of various vibrant colors. With textures overlaying one another and repeating constantly, the visual bug was truly unrelenting and only ceased to occur once the squad had been eliminated from the rainbow-fuelled drug trip.

At times, certain parts of a properly textured map came into focus however it soon dissipated with each rotation. Eventually the map began to shrink and it became nearly impossible for the floating players to navigate inside of the safe cylinder.

No real victor can stand out from the pack after a match like this but perhaps every player who experienced the visual bug is a winner. They all experienced one of the most amusing glitches to date and certainly won’t forget the bizarre rainbow free-fall anytime soon.

There’s no telling quite how this unique accident came to be but it seems as though players had no say in the matter. Jumping out of the dropship is how every game starts, meaning the odds of replicating the hilarious glitch are slim to none.


“This is what Octane sees after he uses 73 stims” Reddit user ‘Orangestshark’ joked in response to the wild glitch.

There’s no denying that the popular battle royale title often provides some laughable moments but this absurd glitch gives even Rainbow Road a run for its money.

While a number of bugs have stemmed from the dropship recently, it’ll be fascinating to see if anything can top the ridiculousness of this spectacle.

Despite being around for a while now, the infamous code 100 error continues to cause problems in Apex Legends and we’ve got all the info you need to address it.

What is the code 100 error in Apex Legends?

The Code 100 Error has been annoying Apex Legends players since early 2020; the error relates to players being unable to ‘complete their EA Account sign in,’ which is particularly annoying for players as EA have not yet noted the issues, much less acknowledged that they have their own fix coming.

Players have come up with a temporary fix of their own, with the remedy being pretty much the same regardless of whether you play the popular title on PC, Xbox, or PlayStation. You can find the fix for each respective platform below.

Respawn Entertainment / EA GamesThe Code 100 error is stopping Apex Legends players from helping teammates as Lifeline.

The temporary fix, which has been a success for most 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, go into your network settings and tweak a few things:

  1. Go to Settings – Network, Advanced Settings, DNS Settings
  2. Change DNS settings to the following:
  3. Primary DNS: 8.8.8.8
  4. Secondary DNS: 8.8.4.4
  5. Save settings and return to Apex Legends

You may have to restart the game for the updated settings to make a change.

Again, fixing the error on either PlayStation console is pretty similar to Xbox but there are a couple more steps to follow:

  1. Go to Settings » Network » Set Up Internet Connection.
  2. Select which connection you use – be it WiFi or LAN Cable
  3. Select ‘custom’ and enter the following settings:
    • IP Address Settings: Automatic
    • DHCP Host Name: Do Not Specify
    • DNS Settings: Manual
    • Primary DNS: 8.8.8.8
    • Secondary DNS: 8.8.4.4
    • MTU Settings: Automatic
    • Proxy Server: Do Not Use

Save these settings and then return to your home screen.  Like on Xbox, you may have to close the Apex Legends application and start it up again for the changes to take effect.

How to fix Apex Legends code 100 Error on PC

The good news is that there is a fix for code 100 on PC, the bad news is that it takes a bit longer to do that on console. That said, if you follow these steps, you should be able to bypass the error.

  1. On PC, hit the Win + R keys together, opening the command box
  2. There, type in ncpa.cpl and wait for ‘Network Connections’ to appear
  3. On Network Connections, head to the internet connection you operate on and right-click it
  4. Once that right-click menu open, select properties
  5. After the properties menu opens, find Internet Protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4) and select properties – which is towards the bottom right-hand side of the box
  6. There, select ‘Use the following DNS server addresses’ and type in:
  7.  Preferred DNS server: 8.8.8.8
  8. Alternate DNS server: 8.8.4.4
  9. Once done, select OK in the bottom right-hand corner. Once the box disappears, restart your PC and allow the changes to take place.

So, there you have it, that’s how you fix the Code 100 Error on old-gen and next-gen consoles, as well as PC.
