Shroud mind blown after opponent perfectly counters his gold shield in Apex Legends

Apex Legends.

As one of the most popular channels on the livestreaming platform, viewers flock to shroud’s stream as he showcases his incredible gaming skills on a daily basis.

However, despite his usually cool, calm, and collected attitude, even he isn’t immune from running into in-game situations that cause frustrations and a not-safe-for-work outburst.

Shroudshroud regualrly attracts thousands of viewers to watch him dominate in battle royale titles.

During his June 22 stream, the former CS:GO pro was doing what he does best – winning games of Apex Legends. However, as he was on the path to another win, he tried to earn his free shield boost by using Octane’s finisher while using a gold (level 4) shield.

“What?” exclaimed shroud, disappointed that after finishing the move, his gold shield hadn’t in fact refilled at all. “Oh, he left the game. That’s horseshit.”

I didn’t get my boy, my boy – are you fucking me?” he added, upon realizing he’d have to recharge his shield another way, “that’s so lame.”

Shroud didn’t even leave his annoyance with the situation there, however, as he explained what had just happened to teammate Tyler ‘Skadoodle’ Latham. The streamer continued on: “Dude, that’s such bullshit,” before turning his attention to another group of players and bagging a few more kills.

The frustration didn’t affect the outcome of shroud’s game in any way as he and his partners powered their way to yet another victory.

However, with Apex Legends Season 2 just around the corner, it could well be something that Respawn considers fixing so that players are still rewarded for choosing to use a finisher, rather than being punished because the enemy took the easy way out.

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.
