Pathfinder may not be the most popular Apex Legend, but his ability could greatly increase you and your teammate’s chances of becoming champions.

Many players opt for a slimmer character such as Wraith, one because of the excellent portal ability as well as her smaller hitbox – making it harder for enemy players to deal damage.

On the other hand, Pathfinder is one of the largest legends on the game and players were able to uncover an issue which made his hitbox even bigger than his character model; this issue was later patched by Respawn which should encourage players to give him a try on the battlefield.

Why is Pathfinder the best legend?

Movement. In Apex Legends, movement is one of the best important mechanics and no-one other legend’s ability allows players to manoeuvre like Pathfinder.

As shown by Reddit user u/Cassiopeia93, his ability can be used to gain a huge height advantage when enemies have been weakened by jumping just as the grapple hits your target.

If you end your jump with a slide to gain even more momentum, your enemies won’t see you coming until it’s too late.

His grappling ability combined with the sliding mechanic can give you a massive advantage over your opposition – a slightly larger hitbox shouldn’t put you off using him as his movement capabilities are a fair trade off.

What else does Pathfinder offer?

RESPAWN ENTERTAINMENTPathfinder isn’t a popular choice of legend among players due to it’s large character model.

Pathfinder’s ultimate ability can also give you and your squad the best positioning as the circles start to become smaller and smaller.

In battle royale games, high ground is usually one of the most advantageous positions on the map – in Apex Legends, there are plenty of mountains that are commonly an ideal location to be situated when only a few players remain.

Using Pathfinder’s ult, you can zip line to most places, putting yourself in the best place to catch your opponents unaware. You could even bait your enemies into using the zip line themselves before waiting to take them down.

We urge you to give Pathfinder a chance to impress you – who knows you might even end up making him your main character.

Despite being around for a while now, the infamous code 100 error continues to cause problems in Apex Legends and we’ve got all the info you need to address it.

What is the code 100 error in Apex Legends?

The Code 100 Error has been annoying Apex Legends players since early 2020; the error relates to players being unable to ‘complete their EA Account sign in,’ which is particularly annoying for players as EA have not yet noted the issues, much less acknowledged that they have their own fix coming.

Players have come up with a temporary fix of their own, with the remedy being pretty much the same regardless of whether you play the popular title on PC, Xbox, or PlayStation. You can find the fix for each respective platform below.

Respawn Entertainment / EA GamesThe Code 100 error is stopping Apex Legends players from helping teammates as Lifeline.

The temporary fix, which has been a success for most players, revolves around being able to change your DNS [Domain Name System] server to a public DNS service, which has its own numbered code.

To make the fix work on Xbox, go into your network settings and tweak a few things:

  1. Go to Settings – Network, Advanced Settings, DNS Settings
  2. Change DNS settings to the following:
  3. Primary DNS: 8.8.8.8
  4. Secondary DNS: 8.8.4.4
  5. Save settings and return to Apex Legends

You may have to restart the game for the updated settings to make a change.

Again, fixing the error on either PlayStation console is pretty similar to Xbox but there are a couple more steps to follow:

  1. Go to Settings » Network » Set Up Internet Connection.
  2. Select which connection you use – be it WiFi or LAN Cable
  3. Select ‘custom’ and enter the following settings:
    • IP Address Settings: Automatic
    • DHCP Host Name: Do Not Specify
    • DNS Settings: Manual
    • Primary DNS: 8.8.8.8
    • Secondary DNS: 8.8.4.4
    • MTU Settings: Automatic
    • Proxy Server: Do Not Use

Save these settings and then return to your home screen.  Like on Xbox, you may have to close the Apex Legends application and start it up again for the changes to take effect.

How to fix Apex Legends code 100 Error on PC

The good news is that there is a fix for code 100 on PC, the bad news is that it takes a bit longer to do that on console. That said, if you follow these steps, you should be able to bypass the error.

  1. On PC, hit the Win + R keys together, opening the command box
  2. There, type in ncpa.cpl and wait for ‘Network Connections’ to appear
  3. On Network Connections, head to the internet connection you operate on and right-click it
  4. Once that right-click menu open, select properties
  5. After the properties menu opens, find Internet Protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4) and select properties – which is towards the bottom right-hand side of the box
  6. There, select ‘Use the following DNS server addresses’ and type in:
  7.  Preferred DNS server: 8.8.8.8
  8. Alternate DNS server: 8.8.4.4
  9. Once done, select OK in the bottom right-hand corner. Once the box disappears, restart your PC and allow the changes to take place.

So, there you have it, that’s how you fix the Code 100 Error on old-gen and next-gen consoles, as well as PC.
