It’s no secret that Call of Duty has a problem with cheaters and it has been ruining the experience for a lot of players who are trying to enjoy.
In an attempt to further combat rampant cheaters in Call of Duty, Activision has announced RICOCHET anti-cheat, which is a robust system supported by a team of dedicated professionals focused on fighting unfair play.
The RICOCHET Anti-Cheat initiative is a multi-faceted approach to combat cheating, featuring new server-side tools which monitor analytics to identify cheating, enhanced investigation processes to stamp out cheaters, updates to strengthen account security, and more. RICOCHET Anti-Cheat’s backend anti-cheat security features will launch alongside Call of Duty: Vanguard, and later this year with the Pacific update coming to Call of Duty: Warzone.
Call of Duty: Warzone will also add a Kernel-Level Driver that will be coming to Warzone later this year and will check the software and applications that attempt to interact and manipulate Call of Duty: Warzone, providing the overall security team more data to bolster security and will be required to play Warzone.
Despite concerns, the kernel-level driver will only operate while playing Call of Duty: Warzone on PC, shutting speculations of it working in the background.
We’ll have to see if the system will prove to be effective and hopefully, be the start of their initiative to slowly bring some semblance of control into the game.
