The fix on consoles is temporary, but it’s much faster than the one for PC, and players have found it successful. It involves changing your DNS [Domain Name System] server to a public DNS service with its own numbered code.

You can bypass the error on your PS5 by following these steps:

  1. Go to ‘Settings’ > ‘Network’ > ‘Set Up Internet Connection’
  2. Pick the connection that you use (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

Once you save these settings, you will have fixed the error. You will have to close the Apex Legends application and start it up again to apply the changes to the game.

Here’s what you need to do:

Apex Legends pro ImperialHal explains why players should avoid “trash” Vantage

Apex Legends pro ImperialHal believes the new Season 14 Legend Vantage is “trash,” as he comments on her sniper-focused kit.

Apex Legends Season 14 introduced Vantage as a brand-new Legend, and while most in the community have been enjoying her kit, pro player Phillip ‘ImperialHal’ Dosen believes the character is “trash.”

With the Apex Legends Season 14 update, players have finally got their hands on the latest Legend to join the roster, Vantage.

While it may be hard for Vantage to compete with the meta thanks to the buffs for Legends like Mad Maggie and Newcastle, she definitely offers players something different.

This new Recon Legend offers players a unique sniper-focused playstyle that has quite a few tricks already, as players found that Vantage can actually wall run.

With that said, a pro player for TSM is not convinced by Vantage, calling her “one of the worst characters in the game,” especially in Ranked Leagues.

During a stream, ImperialHal shared his opinions on Apex Legends Season 14’s new Legend. While the pro has only had a week to get to know the character, ImperialHal feels that Vantage is “trash.”

While it seems like a pretty harsh take, ImperialHal does explain his opinion, stating that her kit is “really good early game,” but “gets worse as the game goes on.”

ImperialHal goes on, saying that “if you’re fighting off spawn she’s pretty good, but passed like the looting stage I feel like she’s not that good…as soon as it gets like to mid and late game, she’s like one of the worst characters in the game.”

The pro Apex Legends player does give fans of Vantage some hope, however, saying that she could be a really good pair with Newcastle, who received some pretty strong buffs to his kit in Season 14.

Overall, Hal just feels as if her Sniper’s Mark Ultimate ability is not strong enough for late game in ranked, “her ulty just gets really bad when it’s against like purple armors and red armors…playing ranked it just seems like I can’t do anything after the early game.”

Best FOV Setting for Apex Legends Season 14

Apex Legends has a variety of settings which can enhance your experience, and here are the best FOV settings in Season 14.

Apex Legends players have the option of customizing FOV, to give them the best advantage possible, and here is the best FOV setting that you can use in Season 14 of the battle royale.

Apex Legends Season 14 has brought plenty of brand-new content for players to explore, including some Ranked Leagues changes and the addition of the new Legend Vantage.

It’s important to have the optimal game settings when hopping into the new season, and this includes FOV which you can customize to improve your view and give yourself a competitive edge over your opponents.

We’ll go over everything that you need to know about FOV in Apex Legends.

What is FOV in Apex Legends?

FOV stands for field of view, which is essentially the size of the viewing angle on the screen. If this setting is higher, it will allow for a bigger viewing angle, letting players see more around them. If this setting is lower, it will decrease the viewing angle.

The default FOV on Apex Legends is set to 70, which to most experienced players is extremely low. The setting can be adjusted to go all the way up to 110.

What Apex Legends FOV setting is best?

The best FOV setting lies between 96 and 104 depending on your setup. If you play on a big TV then you should have a higher FOV as the bigger screen will allow you to still see long-range targets.

While this setting is entirely up to your personal preference and setup, we strongly recommend that you keep it above 70 FOV. Otherwise, you’ll be limited in your ability to read what’s going on around you.

A high FOV on a smaller screen or monitor may distort your viewing and prevent you from seeing things at longer ranges, so in this case, we recommend that you keep your FOV in the 90s.

Ultimately, having your FOV between 90-104 will put you at an advantage over those with the default or lower, as you will be able to see more on the screen and react much quicker to situations.

After setting a new, higher FOV, you may also want to play around with your sensitivity and increase that, too, as these settings scale, and a higher FOV might make your original sensitivity feel too slow.

Apex Legends players call for removal of Arenas in Season 14

Apex Legends players are calling for Arenas to be removed from the game in Season 14 as they address the lack of support for the mode.

Arenas in Apex Legends

The Apex Legends community is speaking out about the lack of support the 3v3 Arenas mode has received in recent updates, calling for it to be removed in Season 14.

Apex Legends Season 14 has had a very successful launch, bringing a heap of players to the game thanks to exciting new content such as Vantage and Kings Canyon overhauled.

It’s clear that Apex Legends isn’t going anywhere, with Dr Disrespect explaining why he believes the BR isn’t close to dying out, but players are disappointed and now calling for the removal of Arenas.

While it isn’t the most popular mode, Arenas does have a fan base who are disappointed with the lack of support the mode has seen in recent updates, especially Season 14.

Apex Legends content creator and community figure Thordan Smash took to Twitter to discuss this lack of support, believing that Respawn should remove Arenas in favor of another game mode.

Thordan feels that Arenas should be removed for solos, TDM, or even Control, feeling as if Arenas is no longer “fun.”

The devs have already confirmed that Control will not be permanent anytime soon, but it will be returning at some point as an LTM.

Players in the comments seem to be in agreement with Thordan Smash, with a user saying that Arenas should either be removed, revamped, change, or replaced with other game modes:

“Been saying this for awhile I think they should either remove the mode, revamp it or Change the overall structure, or at the very least add other casual game modes and take arenas out for one season to work on improving its playability.”

While not everyone in the comments agrees that it should be removed, many agree that the mode deserves more attention. One comment even said, “I enjoy Arenas, but I wish it got some TLC and adjustments…it needs work for sure.”

We’ll have to wait and see what happens with Arenas in the future, but until then, check out our review of Apex Legends Season 14.
