We're not talking about anything fun today like new Legends, new Heirlooms, or new maps. Nope, we're talking about boring old bugs. And specifically, we're talking about the "Error Code 103" bug, the one that blocks you from even getting into the game to start playing. It's annoying, and it's recurring, but it's also solvable. Here's how to fix this bug.

What Causes Error Code 103?

Error Code 103 is caused by a failure to verify your account with the EA servers. Usually, this error spikes, and we see hundreds of users effected in the same few hours. So don't worry, it's "their fault" so to speak. But there are a few things that you can try on your own, and one of these could resolve this issue. Follow the steps beneath, and you should be able to force the system to reverify your account and allow you into the game.

How Do You Fix Error Code 103?

To solve Error Code 103 you effectively need to force EA to reverify your account. To do this, follow the steps beneath, and check after each stage if you've resolved the issue:

  1. Back out to the first menu screen of Apex Legends, and then attempt to log back in.
  2. Close the application completely, and then re-open the application.
  3. Restart your console or computer and try again.
  4. Unplug your router, plug it back in after 15 seconds, and try to log back into Apex.

If none of the above works, then you've got to go to DEFCON 1 and delete then re-install Apex Legends. But hopefully these methods work first.

Okay, gang, that's all there is to say about the "Error Code 103" error. Hopefully, you found it useful, and you can get back to enjoying your favorite Battle Royale.
