Cheaters are always a problem in any game, including the Call of Duty game. Ricochet, Activision’s latest anti-cheat system, was officially launched in response. What effect does this anti-cheat have?
Activision is working hard to combat the cheaters and cheaters of CoD Warzone who make Verdansk gamers feel uneasy while playing. Activision has taken several steps, but the cheaters do not appear to be running out of ways to make money.
That’s why Activision promised a strict security system when they released the Ricochet anti-cheat system.
It’s a significant move for Warzone and Vanguard, which have long been plagued by hackers, cheaters, and aimbots, and it appears to be a positive thing for the games as a whole. But how exactly does it work? In this article, we’ll go over all we know about the new Warzone Ricochet anti-cheat mechanism and what it can do for your game.
How Ricochet Anti Cheat Works in Warzone
Ricochet systems operate at the kernel level of the computer or as part of the operating system’s core. The reason for this is that various cheats operate at the kernel level, disguising their programs as part of the computer’s core in order to avoid detection by standard anti-cheat software.
Ricochet can read and detect signs of cheating by analyzing cheaters’ data and comparing it to that of the alleged perpetrators. If the system detects a match for the cheater’s pattern, Ricochet can immediately provide mitigation while also enforcing the ban.
Ricochet’s mitigation action, Damage Shield, will have a direct impact on cheaters’ gameplay elements. If proven, their damage output will be significantly reduced, preventing them from performing critical attacks and interfering with the match’s progress.
Activision claims that this system has reduced the number of cheaters as well as their reporting. They will continue to improve this system by incorporating new mitigation measures.
Activision is expanding their security coverage for other Call of Duty games on various platforms, in addition to Ricochet. Cheaters who commit serious offenses or repeat their bad behavior will now be permanently banned from all Call of Duty games, including Modern Warfare, Black Ops: Cold War, Vanguard, and Warzone.
