Can’t log in to Apex Legends on Switch

If you’re hitting a wall during login, and being greeted with error code 100, there’s a quick fix you should try first. Go to your console’s settings and make sure the time and date are correct. A wrong date or time is causing this for a lot of folks – I’m looking at you, time-travelling turnip brokers.

If that doesn’t help – and it usually will – there’s another thing you could try. Some players report that making new accounts with matching dates of birth helped. Keep in mind that all the reports included making an 18+ account – that is, setting your date of birth so that it you’re at least 18 years old. This might include making a new Nintendo account as well, which might be more hassle than it’s worth.

It’s definitely an issue that’s bothering a lot of people, so even if these workaround don’t solve it for you, know that you’re not alone. The developers are aware of it, and they’ll probably push out a fix or figure out a surefire solution in the near future.

If you manage to get it working using these tips, let us know. Likewise, if you figure out a potential solution we haven’t listed, do let us know – the more the merrier, as they say.
