Call Of Duty Anti-Cheat Tool Status Update
Call of Duty’s main development team recently released the RICOCHET Anti-Cheat system on PC and Console with a huge drop of in-game cheat reporting in Vanguard and Warzone. Team RICOCHET has the ability to catch and ban accounts rapidly, bringing cheating inside Warzone to a record-breaking low during the holiday break.
The team is consistently monitoring with the best effort to prevent and handle wallhacks and aimbots. As time passes by, hack development companies have searched for better approaches to take advantage of the game. Some have succeeded, others have not, and it resulted in lawsuits against these companies that develop hacks.
Let’s look at some of the updates Team RICOCHET had provided:
Data Collection & Mitigation
RICOCHET Anti-Cheat system relies on data and in-game Artificial intelligence to read the player's hardware and software registry and search from wallhack and aimbot software, enhancing the effectiveness of bans and removing hackers from the game. The goal is to guarantee cheaters are not taking wins from the community.
Also, the team is testing the mitigation technique called “Damage Shield”. At the point when the server distinguishes a cheater is messing with the game continuously, it impairs the cheater’s capacity to cause critical damage to different players. Also, this technique leaves the cheater vulnerable to real players.
The team announced the Anti-Cheat system is live and in development, and since the launch of RICOCHET, cheat reports are on the drop. The team encourages players to use the report tool whenever encounter a cheater.
Unified Security & Enforcement Policy
Team RICOCHET is pleased to announce the security team has applied changes to the security enforcement policy for PC and console titles inside the Call of Duty universe. The previous version was only applied to Call of Duty: Vanguard. You can find the policy here.
Moving on, outrageous, or repeated violations of the security policy – such as cheating, an attempt to hide or obfuscate your ID on hardware devices – may result in a permanent suspension.
Permanent suspensions for security infractions apply to any infractions in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Call of Duty: Warzone, and Call of Duty: Vanguard, as well as future titles in the Call of Duty franchise.
