Apex Legends fans reported a strange issue that was keeping them from being able to play the game after The Holo-Day Bash update went live. The Code:Truck Error was preventing players from logging in, but EA & Respawn have patched it up.
The long-awaited Holo-Day Bash update for Apex Legends is finally here. It’s brought along a plethora of new content, along with some neat cosmetics and skins. The highlight of the update is the new Winter Express LTM but that’s not all that drew players’ attention.
The update also brought a new error to the game that was affecting many players in the Apex community. The Code:Truck error would show up up when they tried to join the game and it kept them from logging in. Here’s everything you need to know about the error and how EA responded to it.
What is the Code:Truck error?
Apex players reported getting a pop up message when trying to log into the game.The exact error message that they got said players were “out of sync with the server [code:truck]” as you can see below:
According to the error message, either the players were out of sync or the game was. Unfortunately, the exact technical issue behind this remains unknown, but a large number of people reported seeing this after the Holo-Day Bash update arrived.
It might just be a server issue that needs quick patching up but it caught the attention of the developers.They immediately tried to get handle on the situation.
EA responds to Code:Truck error
Electronic Arts took note when complaints about the code:truck error started blowing up in the Apex community. In order to reassure players that they were working on it, they gave this response:
We can see from this tweet that EA support hasn’t confirmed the exact cause of the error but they’ve suggested a possible short-term fix. They suggested waiting 40 minutes after the error appeared before trying to run Apex Legends again.
How to fix the Code:Truck error
A few hours after that first tweet, EA support announced that the Code:Truck error has now been resolved entirely, and they thanked the players for waiting patiently.
This came as a huge relief to the Apex community as now they can finally get back to enjoying the Holo-Day Bash update. We don’t know for sure if this fix has been successful for everyone so if you still encounter the Code:Truck error when trying to log in then you can try some other solutions.
Before this latest announcement came, many players on Reddit recommended a few different methods for fixing the error. One suggested changing the date and time on your console and this worked for a few people.
Other reported fixes were to verify the game files with Steam, or to try closing Apex Legends before running it again. These had varying levels of success for different players and many fans were worried that the error could cause irreversible harm to their game.
So far the fix seems to have worked perfectly and hopefully that is the end of this inconvenience. At this time we still don’t know what exactly lead to this error happening in the first place, or if the problem still persists for some fans, but we’ll keep you updated as we learn more.
Apex Legends teams hilariously play volleyball in-game with Cargo Bots
Some Apex Legends players went viral after starting a game of Volleyball with Octane’s Jump Pad and a few Cargo Bots.
A few Apex Legends fans stopped a match to play a game of Volleyball with Octane’s Jump Pad and a few Cargo Bots. This led to some hilarious results, and the clip has gone viral in the Apex community.
Apex Legends is known for its massive maps which serve as large-scale playgrounds for you to explore. Through this, you can discover brand new combat strategies, hiding spots, and tricks to practice. Alternatively, you can just mess around.
Players have been discovering fun activities to pass the time in the Battle Royale ever since it first launched. We’ve seen various creative endeavors from fans, and now a new one has been found; playing volleyball with Cargo Bots.
Teams play Cargo Bot volleyball in Apex Legends
They were able to get their hands on a grounded Cargo Bot and rolled it all the way up to a spot where they had set up a makeshift Volleyball court. This consisted of Octane’s jump pads, and they would use them with Pathfinder’s zipline.
As time passed, even more players came across this and decided to join in on the fun. Rather than messing things up for everyone, they picked up on the rules and played the game. The clip gets even funnier as more people get involved.
Eventually, someone tried to ruin the fun by shooting up the players. However, they didn’t let this ruin their resolve and continued playing as the circle got even closer. They only stopped once the area became too small to stand in.
At that point, you can predict what happened next. Everybody started shooting at each other and using their Ultimate abilities, which led to mass chaos and mayhem. Sadly, this was inevitable as the shrinking circle incites conflict.
Despite that, this was still a hilarious moment of different players coming together to have dumb fun. This is why you should play Apex Legends creatively since you can discover other neat tricks when messing around.

Apex Legends Season 8 Trailer shows new Fuse legend and abilities
Apex Legends Season 8 shows us some new content coming to the game, including new legend Fuse and map changes.
The newest Apex Legends Season 8 Trailer shows us some new content coming up for the game’s newest content season, titled “Mayhem”.
This season we will see the introduction of the new legend, Fuse, who has been teased for quite some time now. Alongside this new legend also comes huge map changes. Here’s the rundown.
New Legend – Fuse
Fuse is an explosives focused Legend, with a kit that seems to not disappoint. According to the trailer, Fuse is seen throwing his own unique grenades, which look very similar to a grenade model leaked earlier this month. If that same leak is true, then the grenades are called “Projectile Grenades” and his ultimate is called “Firebomb”.
As a character, Fuse seems to be a sarcastic and energetic Legend, so his personality will mesh right into the current Apex Legends cast.
King’s Canyon Changes
Map changes also appear to be on the horizon for Season 8. During the trailer, a large explosion sends a shockwave throughout King’s Canyon, causing havoc to the entire map, taking down landmasses and buildings.
We can expect the new update to bring a large map overhaul, consisting mostly of already existing, but destroyed areas. Hopefully, this update will also bring us new locations, or even secrets hidden beneath the map. This may also remove some bodies of water scattered across the map, so it’s sure to be an exciting change.
You can view the full season 8 trailer here.

Apex Legends trick makes grenades explode upon landing
There is an Apex Legends trick that you can use in order to make grenades explode immediately when they reach your target.
You can dish out a ton of damage by throwing grenades in Apex Legends, but there’s a technique that you can use to catch your enemies completely by surprise, especially at long-range.
There is a wide variety of weapons and throwables available to you when playing Apex Legends. Each of them suits different combat situations, and grenades are perfect for dealing explosive damage to enemies from a distance.
If your throwing arm is strong, you can dish out a lot of pain to your foes. A well-thrown grenade is difficult to dodge due to its quick ignition time, and you can use a neat trick to achieve that from a distance.
This technique makes the grenade explode immediately upon landing which makes the blast unavoidable, and you can do this when throwing them at long-range.
Apex Legends grenade trick makes them unavoidable at long-range
Reddit user EddygCPA posted a thread to the Apex University subreddit, where they showed how you can throw grenades with such accuracy that they explode on landing. At the time of writing, this thread and has over 3500 upvotes.
This trick involves aiming directly upwards when throwing a grenade at long-range. You can then adjust the angle so that it lands on your opponents from above, and then immediately explodes.
You would not be able to achieve the same effect if you aimed directly at your enemies, since they would see it coming, and immediately try getting out of its way. Making use of the trick will grant you the element of surprise.
You can improve your chances of success when using this technique by putting in some time at the Firing Range to practice your grenade throwing. This trick is ideal for catching other players by surprise the next time you throw a grenade.
There are plenty of other tricks that you can discover, which is why you’re encouraged to play the battle royale as creatively as you can. Recently, some players found a technique to counter door-campers by experimenting with Horizon’s abilities.
With Apex Legends Season 8 set to launch on February 2, we will have even more opportunities to find new tricks in the game. Once we find some, we’ll be sure to update you.
