New Apex Legends test shows hitboxes are still messed up

Since Apex Legends came out in February of 2019, players have been complaining about various legends’ hitboxes and it seems there are still some lingering issues.

Pathfinder’s hitbox issues have been there from the beginning, first he had one of the biggest hitboxes in the game and after an update on May 20, it seems to be even more inconsistent.

Reddit user sun-devil2021 posted a video of a test to Pathfinder’s current hitbox, that appears to show how difficult parts of the legend can be to hit.

Respawn EntertainmentPathfinder players probably don’t mind, though.

Hit him if you can

Sun-devil tested the “broken” hitbox during a match along with a cooperative teammate playing Pathfinder, somehow all while not getting ambushed by an enemy team.

As a control, they also shot at a teammate playing as Octane, which helped show how deceiving Pathfinder’s hitbox can actually be.

Where Octane takes damage where you would expect on the model, nearly half of the shots aimed at Pathfinder seem to pass through harmlessly.

Even though Respawn has made updates to hitboxes and hit detection, obviously things still don’t seem to be ideal, at least for people who aren’t Pathfinder players.

What’s new in Apex Legends?

Respawn recently shared details about the Apex Legends Season 2 Battle Pass, which is expected to go live next week, possibly on Tuesday, June 4.

Besides new cosmetic content, Season 2 will also introduce the Apex Elite Queue, which puts players in a different match queue after they place in the top 5, all against other top 5 players.

It appears Respawn has been aware of fan’s complaints as far as content goes, but we’ll have to see how long it takes them to address the apparently still broken hitboxes.

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.
