Call of Duty’s proprietary anti-cheat tool, Ricochet Anti-Cheat, will be going live in Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Vanguard. The kernel-level anti-cheat driver will come into effect later this week, beginning in the Asia-Pacific region before expanding worldwide.
Considering that Call of Duty: Warzone has a well-documented history of cheaters, with thousands of accounts being banned every month for the offense, the anti-cheat tool is one of the most awaited additions in the Warzone Pacific update.
When players boot up Warzone Pacific, they’ll see the Ricochet Anti-Cheat logo as part of the game’s loading screen. The kernel-driver installation process is automatic. Once available, when Warzone Pacific launches, the driver will launch with the game. When players exit the game, the driver will shut down.
Ricochet Anti-Cheat is an evolving initiative that will grow stronger as its systems learn more about cheating behaviour. With every new update, cheaters will be forced to change their tactics, which provides the developers with more information to identify and expel them from the community.
