This Octane ‘finisher’ should be added to Apex Legends immediately

An Apex Legends fan has made a finisher for new Legend Octane that looks good enough to be added to the game tomorrow.

Octane is the newest addition to Apex’s line-up of Legends, and the first added to the game since its launch. An adrenaline junkie and former daredevil, Octane is all about speed and momentum using his Stim and Launch Pad abilities to traverse the map.

The addition of a new character always inspires some creativity from fans, and Apex Legends player u/Hexedz went above and beyond by animating an entirely new “finisher” move for Octane that wouldn’t look out of place if it had been made by Respawn themselves.

Finishers are about eliminating enemies in style. Though technically they conserve ammo compared to simply shooting your opponent after they’ve been downed, finishers take several seconds to complete, during which time you’re vulnerable to attack.

They’re also interrupted by taking damage, so in order to complete one you need to have the opponent entirely at your mercy, despite knowing that their team-mates must still be alive – otherwise they’d simply bleed out. Forcing an opponent to watch as you take a time out to showboat while eliminating them is therefore perhaps the ultimate disrespect.

EAOne of Wraith’s finishers ends with a knock-out punch to the face.

In u/Hexedz’s finisher, called “Running Circles”, Octane does just that, looping around his enemy quickly before ending by breaking their neck with a flourish and posing for the camera.

The finisher hasn’t just been popular with fans, but even caught the eye of Respawn themselves, with a developer complimenting u/Hexedz on his work.

Unfortunately for fans of the move, however, chances are it will never actually appear in the game even though many would consider it of high enough quality.

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.
