Barely two weeks ago told EA more how cheaters and assholes should be punished in Battlefield 2042, and now it’s time for Activision to do the same for Call of Duty: Vanguard and Call of Duty: Warzone.
Activision reveals that those with these two titles should move to a new anti-cheating system called Ricochet Anti-Cheat. You can read a much more detailed explanation of how the new system works in the link above, but in short, server-driven tools will constantly look for and analyze suspicious activity and potential applications among all players when this is launched along with Call of Duty: Vanguard and Call of Duty: Warzone’s Pacific Update in November. In addition, a separate PC driver is launched along with the latter. This will further improve the system, as well as help developers with more information so that it can be further improved for both PC and console. Some of you may not really like the idea of this, but the company promises that Ricochet Anti-Cheat is not as bad as some other counterparts. For example, the driver will only be active when you play Call of Duty, so there is no need to fear inferior performance or collection of personal information.
As mentioned earlier, you can read much more about exactly how everything works in the link, but we also have a video to offer. What are your thoughts on the hunt for cheaters?
