Facing the error code ‘clock’ in Apex Legends? Well, it’s a particularly difficult error to debug. According to most user reports, the error ‘clock’ seems to be a server issue on EA or Respawn’s side. Although there are a few workarounds that users claim to have worked for them, many have shared that the issue seems to solve itself after a while. Nevertheless, we will help you troubleshoot the error code ‘clock’ in Apex Legends in this article.
As you may already know, Apex Legends is one of the most popular hero-based shooter titles of all time. It’s natural that a huge part of the player base regularly logs into the game to play. Being a competitive game, Apex Legends features a ranking system for players. As players win matches and secure a good KDA at the end of each match, they receive ranked points or RP. Players stack RP to climb to the top of the ranked ladder. Now, the error code ‘clock’ has reportedly blocked players from entering a match for days. Such a restriction has annoyed a lot of fans, as they are unable to continue ranking up. In Apex Legends Ranked, players need to maintain steady stats. Missing out on playing the game for days can hurt a player’s ranking-up process. Not only this, but this is also outrageous for casual players who want to simply play the game for fun.
