Ricochet anti-cheat launching on PC with Call of Duty: Warzone’s Pacific update later this year, with a later release Call of Duty: Vanguard on a later date.

For non-beginners, kernel-level anti-cheat systems deserve some scrutiny because they’re able to access a wide range of software and applications on your PC, including your graphics card driver. The advantage is that the anti-cheat driver is able to better detect suspicious behavior and provides developers with more data to deal with fraudsters, but what irks some people the wrong way is that it works from the application level. Beyond can monitor and manage your data.


That said, Activision is fully aware of some of the privacy concerns surrounding kernel-level anti-cheat and assures that the software will only run when you boot up Call of Duty and as soon as you exit the application. it will be closed. The publisher also says that Ricochet’s anti-cheat driver will only use data that pertains to Call of Duty. For some perhaps reassuring reference, many games use kernel-level anti-cheat drivers, including fortnite, Fall Guys, Apex Legends, Gears 5, Genshin Impact, Valorant… the list goes on.

The kernel-level driver is the biggest highlight of the new anti-cheat system, but Activision says Ricochet also adds “massive enhancements to the security” of Call of Duty Warzone and Vanguard, including more advanced machine learning algorithms. Lastly, Activision says that player reports and two-factor authentication are vital in the ever-evolving battle against Warzone cheaters, so keep fighting the good fight on your end as well.
