Selecting Apex Legends characters to use is part and parcel of battle in Respawn Entertainment’s game, but fans might be a little shocked to see that preferences have changed somewhat throughout the course of Season 1. 

The popular free-to-play title has attracted over 50 million players since it launched out of nowhere on February 4, with a strong selection of characters to play from – many of which have become fan favorites. 

It goes without saying, at least for hardcore players of the game, that Wraith has already become the most played with legend the game has to offer, and that hasn’t changed throughout the course of the title’s first season. If anything, her position at the top of the standings has only strengthened, but the same can’t be said for other members of the roster. 

Respawn EntertainmentWraith has been one of the top picks since Apex Legends was released.

A new set of standings for the most popular legends has now been revealed, though. There have definitely been some interesting shifts, comparing to statistics recorded nearer the first season’s March 19 launch, as players decided to lean towards some legends rather than others. 

The most noticeable elevation is undoubtedly that of Pathfinder, who was sitting in fourth spot in the rankings in April with a percentage of 13.3% of gamers picking it as their main. 

As of the time of writing, though, the robot has soared into second spot, overtaking both Octane and Lifeline with a new total of 19%. 

Respawn EntertainmentPathfinder has been picked a lot by Apex Legends players, but can the character sustain that popularity in Season 2.

Lifeline (3rd) and Octane (4th) has slipped down only slightly, with 16.4% and 13% popularity rates, respectively. Fans can take a look at the rest of the player preference chart below, which has been provided by PlayApex.net

Most popular Apex Legends character standings (June 21)

  1. Wraith – 23%
  2. Pathfinder – 19%
  3. Lifeline – 16.4%
  4. Octane – 13%
  5. Bangalore – 12.6%
  6. Bloodhound – 5.6%
  7. Mirage – 4.5%
  8. Caustic – 3.6%
  9. Gibraltar – 2.2%
Respawn EntertainmentWattson is coming soon to Apex Legends.

Of course, what is a top nine at the time of writing will soon become a top ten, with the addition of a brand new legend at the start of Apex Legends Season 2. 

The long-awaited addition of Wattson will finally take place on July 2, when the season is set to get underway, and there have already been a number of exciting details revealed her abilities and backstory. 

Whether or not the upcoming addition will have an impact on the legends placed high or low on these standings is unclear, but one thing is for sure – people can’t wait to give her a try.

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.
