Respawn Entertainment have pushed out a weapon balancing update in Apex Legends nerfing the Peacekeeper shotgun, following complaints that it was too powerful.

The Peacekeeper had been under the spotlight of controversy lately in Apex Legends, with many players alleging that the weapon had become far too overpowered.

The player-base had been asking Respawn to nerf the weapon for several weeks now, but their demands had seemingly fallen on deaf ears, as the shotgun continued to wreak havoc on World’s Edge.

However, on November 22, Respawn caught the community off-guard with a previously unannounced mini-update released specifically to nerf Peacekeeper.

It appears that this balancing adjustment was pushed through directly in-game, so players will not need to download an update to see the changes in effect.

This November 22 balancing adjustment included two changes for the Peacekeeper, both of them reducing its effectiveness in some capacity.

Its rechamber time, the time it takes for a round to be loaded into the chamber, has been increased from 1.1 seconds to 1.2. Meanwhile, the headshot multiplayer has been decreased, with the boost going down from 1.5 to 1.25.

There were no changes to the weapon’s damage or range, however, so it remains to be seen whether or not these nerfs will prove to be effective.

Players got their wish, but is it enough?

While it’s true that Respawn finally nerfed the Peacekeeper to fulfill the community’s request, some players are guarding their optimism with caution.

Team Liquid star pro player Mendo replied to the announcement by claiming that “this is nowhere near enough,” and a lot of other comments on both Twitter and Reddit seem to be along that same tune.

That said, the community shouldn’t be overly surprised if these changes prove to not be enough since Respawn have a track record of having to nerf weapons multiple times in the past before the changes actually make a difference.

That was the case with the Wingman, the Alternator with the Disruptor, and, most recently, the Charge Rifle, which some may argue still needs another round of nerfs.

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.
