What is Apex Legends Error Code 100?

Error code 100 is a particularly annoying issue, not because it's anything sinister but rather due to its cause. When the error pops up, players will be met with the message: "Unable to complete EA account sign in." While you might be pushed into thinking that there's a problem with your account, the issue actually lies with EA and Respawn. Error code 100 simply means that there's an issue with the game's servers.

While you might be relieved to find nothing wrong with your account, this also means that there isn't much you can reliably do to fix the issue. When this code crops up, your best bet is to just wait it out until Respawn fixes their servers.

That being said, some players have reported success when changing their DNS setting. This can be done on Xbox, PlayStation, and PC. If you feel like testing it out, you'll need to change your primary connection to 8.8.8.8, and your secondary to 8.8.4.4. It's worth noting that this method has been unreliable, so don't bank on it being a guaranteed fix.

Apex Legends Season 11: Escape kicked off on Nov. 2, 2021 and is set to run until Feb. 8, 2022.
