Call of Duty authors unveil Ricochet โ€” a new anti-cheat for Warzone and Vanguard

Yesterday, the makers of Call of Duty threatened fans of foul play, and have now unveiled their anti-cheater initiative โ€” Ricochet Anti-Cheat, to be used in Warzone and coming Vanguard. This developer initiative offers a comprehensive approach to finding and dealing with cheaters, and improving account security, and more. Anti-cheats โ€œserverโ€ features are promised to launch by the start of Call of Duty: Vanguard, which is November 5, and will be built into Warzone, with the release of a new map โ€” an island in the Pacific Ocean.

In addition to server side improvements, Ricochet will offer a new driver for PC installation, and it will be launched for Warzone first. The driver will help you find cheaters, improving overall server security.

It will be used in Warzone also with the Pacific map, and sometime later โ€” and in Vanguard. The driver will allow you to track programs trying to interact and manipulate files games, while Warzone can only be played once it is installed (of course, when it appears).

The driver will only start when you play Warzone on PC, and shut down when you close the game. In addition, the driver only monitors processes related to Call of Duty.

This way, the development team will receive more data related to suspicious behavior and improve over time protection from cheaters in general. At the same time, the authors tested the new driver, trying to get the maximum number of PCs to work consistently.

Once released, its testing and improvement will continue. Developers say gamers also play an important role in the fight against cheaters.

Activision asks everyone to turn on two-factor authentication and report suspicious players who may or are obviously using read. In addition, machine learning is very important โ€” algorithms examine data from servers to help detect suspicious behavior and thus add another layer of security to Ricochet.

Recall Call of Duty: Vanguard will be released on November 5th on PS4, PS5, Xbox Series, Xbox One and PC. Recently, the developers unveiled a story trailer dedicated to the heroes and villains, and the scriptwriters said they would like to create two sequels to the new story.
