Activision unveiled Ricochet, the new anti-cheating solution for Call of Duty.
Following the warnings, the company unveiled its multi-faceted approach to combating cheating through this solution that includes server-level tools to identify cheats and improved investigation processes to identify cheaters, along with enhanced account security and more.
As a Kernel driver, this solution will be hosted on the players’ PCs and will have the ability to monitor applications that try to interact with Call of Duty games. If the intention to manipulate game files is detected, this will be prevented, and Activision says that even console gamers will benefit from cross-play.
The company also says that the tool will not be as intrusive as others that already exist on the market as it is activated when the game is started and deactivated when the game is closed.
Call of Duty: Vanguard will be the first with Ricochet, which will reach Warzone when the update that transports the map to the Pacific is released.
