Over 48,000 Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone cheaters have been banned this month

Earlier this month, Call of Duty Warzone had its big Pacific update, overhauling the game with content based on Call of Duty: Vanguard. This re-launch also brought about a new kernel-level anti-cheat system for the game on PC and so far, almost 50,000 cheaters have been caught out in less than a month. 

Activision announced Ricochet earlier this year, its new kernel-level anti-cheat system for Call of Duty on PC. Similarly to Riot’s Vanguard anti-cheat system, Ricochet has a kernel-level driver, allowing for advanced permissions to better detect cheats.

Using older anti-cheat methods, over 500,000 Warzone cheaters were banned in an 18-month span. In just a few weeks of Ricochet being live, 48,000 cheaters have been banned since Warzone’s relaunch earlier this month.

Ricochet anti-cheat is also now part of Call of Duty: Vanguard, so those playing the standard multiplayer modes should see fewer cheaters. There will of course still be some, and cheat makers will continue to find new ways to work around anti-cheat methods, but so far, Ricochet seems to be holding up well.

KitGuru Says: Have many of you been playing Warzone since the relaunch? Have you encountered fewer cheaters since Ricochet rolled out?
