When is RICOCHET anti-cheat coming to Warzone?

Hackers beware!

Call of Duty has long been infested with cheaters, but things are expected to change in the coming months. Activision is working on a kernel-level anti-cheat driver for PC called RICOCHET. The RICOCHET anti-cheat system is scheduled to launch in Warzone on Dec. 2.

The anti-cheat driver will be automatically installed alongside the game. It will only start when Call of Duty Warzone is running, and it monitors any software that interacts with the game. RICOCHET also benefits console players who play PC players via cross-play.

Although the anti-cheat is meant only for PC, players can expect some initiative for consoles in the future. There are devices, such as Cronus Zen, which use anti-recoil scripts and are hence considered unfair and malicious.

RICOCHET will initially be launched and tested in Call of Duty: Vanguard Multiplayer and will be introduced later into Warzone Pacific.

At Vanguard’s launch, all Multiplayer gameplay will be examined closely to identify suspicious behavior, but you should always do your part to combat cheaters by reporting any suspected foul play through the in-game reporting tools.

Furthermore, players are advised to enable two-factor authentication on their Call of Duty account for an extra level of protection. This will reduce the risk of your account being stolen by hackers for unfair use.
