Activision have responded to players concerns regarding how the upcoming anti-cheat system will combat hackers using Cronus.
Activision recently unveiled the brand new Ricochet anti-cheat system that will be making its way to the game, Ricochet will be launching alongside upcoming title Vanguard when it launches in November.
Warzone is no stranger to cheaters running riot in the game causing havoc for players, and it seems that over the last few months the hacking problem has seemed to significantly worsen.
The ongoing cheating pandemic has became so bad that a number of pro players and top streamers have ditched the game altogether favouring other popular titles instead such as Apex Legends.
Players have been calling for an anti-cheat system for quite some time now, after devs have issued multiple ban waves in a bid to combat cheaters, despite banning thousands of accounts it appears that hackers were able to make their way back into the game.
Now it looks as if Activision have ramped up efforts to tackle the cheaters head on, players are hoping that this new system will completely eradicate cheaters from the game.
Players have also voiced some concerns on the new anti-cheat system too, as hackers are able to used third-party devices to cheat in the game such as modded controllers and devices like CronuxMAX.
This has fans concerned that Ricochet will not be able to handle these third-party devices, however Activision recently responded in a recent Q&A that “server-side technology that utilizes machine learning paves the way for such devices and scripts to be detected”.
We’re keeping our fingers crossed that this new anti-cheat system will bring around the change we have all been waiting for and rid the game of cheaters once and for all.
Either way, it won’t be too much longer until we find out, but in the meantime be sure to check back with us at Gamerficial for the latest news and updates.
