Warzone RICOCHET Anti-Cheat Officially Revealed

Warzone’s anti-cheat software is finally revealed as RICOCHET Anti-Cheat and we’ve got new details to discuss!

It’s safe to say that we’ve been waiting a long time for Warzone to get a reliable anti-cheat. Since the game launched back in March 2020, the Battle Royale has had more than its fair share of cheaters.

Right now, Warzone is flooded with hackers in Season 6. And, due to the game’s free-to-play nature, there’s little to stop cheaters from just making a new account to hop back online.

That said, we’ve seen a few Warzone hardware bans for cheaters in recent memory.

And the promise of a powerful Warzone anti-cheat coming with the Vanguard Pacific map has a lot of players holding out hope.

And it seems that the WW2 integration is starting early, with 2 Vanguard weapons arriving in Warzone yesterday!

Warzone RICOCHET Anti-Cheat Details – October 13

It seems that information about Vanguard’s anti-cheat is here early – Ricochet is coming to Warzone!

Yesterday, Call of Duty sent out a message to all cheaters, informing users that it won’t stand for users ruining Warzone any longer. Now we finally know why, as Activision confirms we won’t have to wait long for Vanguard’s anti-cheat software.

Warzone’s long-awaited anti-cheat is finally revealed as Ricochet Anti-Cheat, and we’ll soon see how effective it is against cheaters! The software will launch alongside Vanguard, and will be present in the upcoming WW2 Warzone experience.

Reportedly, Ricochet anti-cheat will feature new server-side tools to monitor analytics to identify cheating. On top of that, ‘enhanced investigation processes’ will help stamp out cheaters for good.

According to new reveals, PC players will have a kernel-level driver launching alongside the Pacific map, which should help put an end to the influx of cheaters on the platform.

However, the RICOCHET anti-cheat kernel will also shut down when Warzone is no longer open, eliminating any security issues players might have.

Hopefully this means that the upcoming Warzone Pacific map will be entirely cheater-free. We’re certainly doubtful, especially as the Pacific Warzone map may have major problems already!

In case you missed it, it looks like Vanguard weapons will have 10 attachments in Warzone on launch day!

And with the STG and M1 Garand already having this advantage, are WW2 weapon overpowered in Warzone already?

We wonder if the new Warzone anti-cheat will stop cheaters from leaking skins early too. After all, some Warzone hackers already have Ghostface and Donnie Darko Operators in-game.
