Apex Legends is one of the best free-to-play battle royale games currently present in the market. The game rose to instant success with its silent release in February. It only took eight hours for the game to reach the 1 million player base and only a month to reach 50 million players.

The game quickly became popular, but it also received several criticisms from players for less frequent updates. But Respawn Entertainment made everyone happy by introducing new content with Apex Legends Season 2 which started on July 2.

But currently, Apex Legends players are feeling helpless as they are consistently encountering a Code Leaf error. But what exactly is this leaf code error?

Reddit user ‘Atomic1221’ explained this leaf code error comprehensively in the following words: “Leaf is just the same error we got before when it would try and connect us to the match, but match would get full, and it would get stuck on a loop, and eventually reset pre-patch.”

“Now, instead of this long loop, it is throwing us out to the home screen. My guess code leaf’s name has to do with the leaf falling from the tree too soon or some shit poetic=> Code Leaf: Your connection has been dropped due to the server being full.”


Players have been infuriated by the issue as they can’t enjoy the game and have come forward on Reddit and Twitter to express their concerns. Reddit user ‘u/Z00L22′ has posted this issue over Reddit. Have a look at his post and the players’ response to the same.



Apex Legends Official forum has also been flooded with Code Leaf errors, and fans are waiting for the developers to provide a fix for this irritating issue.Many players are stating that Respawn Entertainment should add this issue to their top priority list and fix it at the earliest.
