Riot Games have finally released a new Valorant patch to address the bizarre out-of-map teleport glitch with Omen on the new Icebox map in Act 3.

Valorant Act 3 is now underway and Riot will have plenty of content, such as new Agents, cosmetics, and more, ready to be released in-game over the next few months.

However, one of the biggest changes so far in Act 3 was the addition of a new map, Icebox, which has unfortunately experienced some bugs following its release on October 13.

The new map Icebox was released for Valorant’s Act 3.

Valorant players were quick to discover a strange bug with one of Omen’s abilities on Icebox and revealed that it was possible to teleport out of the map, giving Omen mains a massive advantage over their opponents.

The glitch with Omen’s Ultimate, From the Shadows, allowed players to get behind the Kitchen area near the B bombsite and shoot their opponents through the walls, making the game nearly unplayable on Icebox.

After Riot developers initially addressed the bizarre bugs on Icebox, they have now finally released a hotfix for the Omen glitch and confirmed that it should have gone live for players at 4 PM PDT on October 21.

“A hotfix is going out today that should stop an exploit where Omen is able to teleport to and attack from an unplayable area on Icebox,” the Valorant devs announced, revealing that they were taking action to fix the latest set of bugs.

When the glitch was first found, 100 Thieves star Hiko was stunned after realizing just how easy and devastating this bug could be in a previous patch, so it is likely that he, and other players, will be happy to see it removed from Icebox.

However, now that the fix is live, Riot will likely shift their attention to some of the other bizarre issues, like Jett’s Dash glitch on the map and audio issues, so that Icebox can finally be released on the Rated playlist.

As of now, it is unclear just when Icebox will be available in Valorant’s ranked mode but we’ll be sure to update you when more information is shared.

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.
