Call of Duty will be debuting its new Ricochet anti-cheat system into the game, this new system will launch alongside Call of Duty Vanguard in November, support for Warzone will shortly follow with the release of the new Pacific map update.
This anti-cheat system will have the ability to stop cheaters in their tracks in a number of different ways, the system will include features such as “server side tools”, “enhanced investigation process” and “account security.”
This will be something entirely new which we have never seen before in Call of Duty, however it’s a step in the right direction to try and combat the immense hacking problems. The new anti-cheat initiative is a kernel-level driver which will be an exclusive feature for PC although console players will feel the impact during cross play.
The kernel-level driver is built into a PC and will allow much deeper access to software running on a PC therefore increasing the amount of protection from cheaters, this will arrive first in Warzone and then later will make its way to Vanguard.
Of course, Call of Duty is not the first to offer kernel-level drivers within their anti-cheat system, lots of games have also used a similar system and while no anti-cheat system is completely perfect at least its a step in the right direction.
