The Call of Duty franchise has been plagued by cheating for a long time. A new anti-cheat program called Ricochet aims to solve this problem, but not everyone will like it.

The Call of Duty series has always had a cheating issue. It can be seen mainly in Warzone, where hitting a cheater is very common. The same thing happened in the Call of Duty Vanguard beta, where many people ran with bots, hacking through walls, invisibility, or even immortality. Therefore, Activision is working on a new anti-cheat system that has just been introduced. However, Ricochet, because that is her name, not everyone will like her.

Ricochet, a new anti-cheat in Call of Duty

The new anti-cheat is actually a complete set of tools designed to detect cheats in Call of Duty Vanguard, and in the future also in Call of Duty Warzone (The mechanism will be introduced to the game with Pacific Update.) Ricochet consists, among other things, of new server-side tools for analyzing player behavior, as well as improved mechanisms for cheating detection, updates and elimination to increase account security.

While this does not raise any major objections on consoles, some on PCs may have a lot of skepticism. why? Because Ricochete has drivers with permissions at the OS kernel level. Activision argues that it will only work when the game launches. In addition, it is only a matter of checking programs that are somehow trying to modify or interact with Call of Duty. However, this does not convince everyone. Players fear that anti-cheat will make life difficult for honest people, and will break over time. Some even laugh that Ricochet will backfire on everyone.
