Ricochet is a new anti-cheat system that DutyThe developers of K are planning to present with the launch of Call of Duty: Vanguard, after support for Call of Duty: Warzone With the release of your Pacific Map update. It is a multifunctional anti-cheat system, which means it targets fraudsters in many different ways. The list of anti-cheat features includes “server-side tools” that monitor analytics for fraudulent behavior, “enhanced investigation processes” and “account security” updates.


The heart of the Ricochet anti-cheat initiative is something new Duty game, though. This is called a kernel-level driver and will be a PC-exclusive feature, although it will affect console players via cross-play.

kernel-level drivers for Duty will come in Call of Duty: Warzone First, later this year, and then Call of Duty: Vanguard. The implication is that the various systems for the Ricochet Anti-Cheat Initiative are still under active development and will be rolled out as soon as they are ready.

Riot Games is probably the best comparison, as it has implemented its own proprietary kernel-level driver. give importance to, much like what Activision is doing for it Duty No Game Is Perfect Anti-Cheat, But Duty The team is clearly striving to improve.
