Being a connection issue, there are a couple of things you can try to fix this error. First and foremost, reset everything. Restart the game, your console or PC, and your router if the previous steps didn’t help. Disconnect your router from the power for at least ten seconds to fully power cycle it.

If these steps haven’t helped, you could contact your internet provider to see if there is a connection issue on their end. PlayStation users have reported improvements to their experience when they linked their accounts to an EA account, so that could be something to try.

If nothing else has worked, you can alter your DNS settings in order to circumvent the issue. For PlayStation users, you can do this by going to Settings, then Network, then Set Up Internet Connection. In your internet settings, pick Custom, then enter your DNS settings manually. Primary DNS settings should be 8.8.8.8 and Secondary DNS should be 8.8.4.4. On Xbox, follow similar steps, in the Network setting choose Advanced Settings then DNS Settings, and change the DNS settings to the same as above.

This process can also be applied to PC. Press Win+R to bring up the Run command box, and type in ncpa.cpl. This will bring up the Network Connections menu, here you should see the network your PC is currently connected to. Right-click on your connection, then select properties. Click on Internet Protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4) then click the Properties button below. A new menu should pop up, and at the bottom, you will see the option to choose automatic or manual DNS settings. Choose manual, then enter 8.8.8.8 as preferred, and 8.8.4.4 as the alternate. Accept that and restart your PC. This should hopefully fix the Code 100 Error and let you get back into Apex Legends.
