YouTuber Apex Legends session but things did not go according to plan.

If you’re even a casual viewer of YouTube and Twitch chances are you know who MrBeast is.

MrBeast is very well known in the community for donating large amounts of money to charity and smaller Twitch streamers, but he also hooks up the big streamers too.

Twitch superstar shroud was given a challenge by MrBeast during his stream on March 25 where $5,000 was up for grabs for each kill he secured in Apex Legends.

Shroud was more than up to the task as he’s one of the best players Apex Legends has to offer, despite his elbow injury.

shroud and MrBeast meet for the first time

While shroud and MrBeast knew of each other before, this was actually the first time the two have met in person.

MrBeast was there to create a sponsored Apex Legends video with shroud but in true MrBeast fashion, he offered a challenge to shroud that would result in him making lots of money for a charity of his choice.

Apex Legends picked a bad time to crash

In the midst of a match where shroud had already earned $30,000 to a charity, the game randomly crashed, causing him to officially ‘lose’ the challenge.

“Oh no, is this real?” shroud asked. “Did that really just happen? Oh no, I was at 30 grand.”

It was definitely not an ideal time for the game to crash as he likely would’ve been able to get a lot more money from that match in particular.

Luckily, MrBeast was a good sport about it all and still decided to support shroud’s charity.

If you’re ever looking to raise money for charity through someone playing video games, shroud is always a good bet.

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.
