The huge crowd of cheaters in Call of Duty has become such a big problem that when you hear the name of this game, cheaters immediately come to mind. Activision decided to fight them by introducing a new and advanced Ricochet system implemented in the latest part of the game – Vanguard. The creators of the game presented the first report on the operation of the system but also announced changes in the granting of bans.
From now on, the penalties are to be much more severe, because the ban on the player is to apply not only to the installment of the game in which he committed the “crime,” but also to older ones, and even those that will be released only in the future. We can read this sentence in the Activision blog post :
Permanent suspensions for security infractions may now apply franchise-wide, including Call of Duty: Vanguard and any past, present, and future titles in the Call of Duty franchise.
Moreover, the scope of banning has also been expanded. Account locks will also be given out if the user tries to hide his identity or makes it difficult to identify his equipment.
Additionally, any attempt to hide, disguise or obfuscate your identity or the identity of your hardware devices may also result in a permanent suspension.
As a reminder, Activision will introduce the Ricochet system to Call of Duty: Warzone with an update in early December, which will add a map of the island in the Pacific, which will integrate battle royal with Vanguard.
