Pathfinder is all but confirmed as the next legend to receive a premium Heirloom set in Apex Legends, after new datamined information revealed a number of details about the robot’s animations and effects.

According to code leaks revealed by data-miner That1MiningGuy combined with a previously revealed image of boxing gloves, the Forward Scout will likely have an Heirloom skin stylized similarly to the old Rock ‘Em, Sock ‘Em plastic robot fighters.

Heirlooms are one of the most valuable cosmetic items in Apex, and can’t be crafted or purchased through the shop. They’re only available through loot boxes, and at a small percentage chance at that, so it makes sense Respawn would go all-in on an iconic theme for Pathfinder’s first ultra-rare release.

So far, Wraith, Bloodhound, and Lifeline have been bestowed the fancy cosmetics, with each leaning heavily into parts of their character—Lifeline boasts shining drumsticks, Wraith wields a kunai knife, and Bloodhound gained a deadly axe.

After data-miner Shrugtal leaked the boxing gloves, many doubted the veracity of the information, and instead suggested the robot character would likely have an ice pick, which he wielded in his concept art, as an heirloom item.

The image from the game files depicts a pair of brightly-colored boxing gloves that feature a smiley face exactly like Pathfinder’s chest-computer images, and a cartoonish “POW!” across the wrists of the potential Heirloom cosmetic.

Now, That1MiningGuy’s own code leaks have all but confirmed it was right, with keywords like “jab,” “melee,” and “draw fist” appearing in code added to the game after Apex’s latest major update on December 3.

It seems like not only will Pathfinder be donning the boxing gloves with his Heirloom set, but there are also a few other things included too, namely a mention of “Easter” based around melee and sprint animations. Maybe a new event next year?

So when is Pathfinder’s Heirloom being released?

Respawn has yet to officially announce when Pathfinder’s Heirloom set will be joining the game, or even that he will be getting one, but there’s a good chance the ultra-rare cosmetic pack is coming alongside the game’s next LTM event.

Considering Bloodhound received theirs during the divisive Iron Crown event on August 13, and Lifeline’s dropped two months later on October 15 amid Halloween’s Fight or Fright, it makes sense for the next pack to drop mid-December.

As luck, or perfect planning from Respawn, would have it, the next limited-time mode—a Mirage-themed ‘Winter Express’ Train event—has already been leaked through the game’s code as well, adding to the likelihood we’ll see Pathfinder’s Heirloom set this month.

It can be confirmed that, like past releases, the new set will require players to collect all 24 packs Holo-Day Bash Collection packs, before the ultra-rare cosmetics are added to the loot pool with a less than 1% chance post-event.

While some may have been hoping the robot scout’s next addition to the game was similar to this interesting skin-bug that looked like a Legendary outfit, most will be pleased to see the much-loved character bestowed his Heirloom box gloves.

It’s not the only cosmetic Pathfinder is receiving soon either, with confirmation a Star Wars Jedi crossover event will be turning the legend into a carbon copy, color-wise at least, of Fallen Order protagonist Cal Kestis’ little sidekick droid BD-1.

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.
