Respawn Entertainment appear to, finally, have a fix for Apex Legends’ pesky Invalid Token error message that ruins has outright stopped some players being able to play at all.

Since launching back in February of 2019, Apex Legends has had its fair share of annoying bugs and error codes. From Loba’s bracelet not working to the infamous Code Leaf error, there has been bumps along the way.

The developers, Respawn, have tried, across numerous updates, to root out the issues. They’ve succeeded in getting rid of some, but not all of them.

That includes the annoying Invalid Token error that has been appearing for a number of seasons, but most prominently in Season 6, and still in Season 7. The error message became increasingly prevalent after the Aftermarket event in Season 6, preventing players from getting into games.

The error started showing up more and more after the Aftermarket event update.

However, there appears to be a change on the horizon, as Respawn Entertainment look set to finally make the long-standing error a thing of the past.

The developers updated their public Trello board to show that they’ve got a fix coming in a future patch for the error. It had previously been labeled that they were “investigating” the issue and looking for a fix. Now, the issue is marked as “Coming in future patch.”

Sadly, there is no date mentioned for when said patch would be rolled out, just that a fix is finally coming – much to the excitement of Apex fans who are still having annoying run-ins with the ongoing problem.

A fix is coming for the Invalid Token error, but there’s no date set in stone.

On top of the Invalid Token error, the devs have also got fixes for the issue with placing Rampart’s ultimate on a Trident, Octane’s Jump Pad taking away the ability to jump afterwards, as well as some Steam-only issues. 

Again, sadly, no expected release date for the update is mentioned on the Trello board, but given that they’ve got different issues ongoing rectified, Respawn will likely to get the fixes out to the live servers sooner rather than later.

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.
