Gibraltar has been getting stronger in Apex Legends, and Mixer star Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek likes that the Shielded Fortress is a bit “broken” at the start of Season 4.

Ever since the Grand Soiree Event patch update on January 14, Gibraltar has been seeing a lot more use in the Apex Games – sometimes being hailed as a tankier Lifeline that can stay alive for a long time while reviving downed teammates faster while inside the Dome Shield.

The buffs have helped Gibby place higher on tier lists for Legends in the game, and the changes haven’t gone past shroud who’s been enjoying the updates to the character.

Gibraltar’s buffs have been making him a great Legend to pick up in the game.

“Dude, Gibraltar is f**king broken,” shroud said after finishing a match against Gibraltar. “What the f**k, that man is a tank! That shield is f**king broken.”

Getting back into the Apex Legends groove, shroud was queuing up with Susquehanna Soniqs’s Noah ‘Android Dream’ Martinez and Matthew ‘WiKeD’ Robertson when noticing the big differences in Gibraltar’s potency as of late.

Some players have gone so far as to say that Gibby actually needs nerfs now, seeing how vital he can be in team comp – but he’s loving it.

“I kinda like how Gibraltar is though,” shroud explained in between games. “It’s just crazy how you always forget how busted that man is.”

Even though Gibby has one of the bigger builds for a character, the Shielded Fortress can mow down players given his health, ability to take a hit with the Fortified passive, shield mounted on his gun barrel, and instant protection from his Dome Shield.

While there might be some downsides to taking the towering Legend into the Apex Games, there are just too many upsides in his kit that makes him a crucial component for teams.

Lately, shroud reaffirmed his love for PUBG over Apex Legends but, if there are more healthy changes to the game like Gibraltar’s much-needed buffs, maybe that could change in the future.

With Season 4 just getting underway, it’ll be interesting to see how Respawn changes up their roster to contend against how strong they’ve made Gibby in the last few months.

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.
