Speed-hacking is one of the more deadly cheating methods in Apex Legends, and the reaction that popular Twitch streamers TrainwrecksTV, Asmongold, and Nmplol, had when they came across it was exactly as you’d expect.

With Apex Legends barely over a month only, it comes as no major surprise that it’s still full of glitches, exploits, and hacks that threaten the integrity of the game.

While many of these exploits are relatively harmless, a few can definitely be categorized as game-breaking, such as the very powerful speed hack.

This hack allows players to move and run around at a much faster speed than normal, which offers them the advantage of being able to get to places much quicker and, perhaps more importantly, be very hard to shoot at.

An example of this hack in action can be seen in the video clip below, which comes from one of Nmplol’s recent Apex streams.

It’s not hard to see why the trio of streamers would be as shocked as they were when the came across a player using this speed hack.

As the player zoomed around at an extremely high speed, Asmongold summed up the situation perfectly: “What are we fighting, Sonic the Hedgehog? What the fuck is this?”

“Ok this game’s done,” said Nmplol. “This game is officially H1Z1 now boys. Everyone say goodbye to this game! It’s over. Once the speed-hackers have it, the game’s done.”

Old school battle royale players will see this comment as a severe insult to Apex Legends, as H1Z1 was notoriously known for its more-than-a-fair share of hackers. 

Jung ParkIf Respawn don’t clean up all of the cheats and exploits in Apex Legends, the game’s popularity might see a major downturn, much like H1Z1.

Of course, the onus is on Respawn Entertainment to help clean up Apex Legends as soon as possibly, as the comparisons being drawn with H1Z1 should send the alarm bells ringing.

As far as cheaters go, the developers have made some progress as they’ve announced that an in-game reporting system is coming soon to make reporting cheaters a lot easier.

However, that is merely a small step in the grand scheme of things, and if Apex Legends is to truly flourish as a battle royale powerhouse, then Respawn have a lot of work in front of them.

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.
