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?
