A few days ago, the official Call of Duty Twitter account issued a special statement aimed at cheaters who effectively discourage fun in multiplayer titles. Now the creators of the series introduce a new Anti-Cheat system, which is to put an end to “cheat”.
It didn’t take long to introduce the new Anti-Cheat system. The creators present comprehensive tools supported by a team of professionals focused on fighting unfair games. RICOCHET Anti-Cheat will try to eliminate 100% of aimbots and other cheating solutions in Call of Duty. The system includes, among others new tools on the server side that will monitor the actions of players, processes to help exclude cheaters from the game and introducing updates to increase account security.
However, RICOCHET Anti-Cheat is not just about server improvements to resist cheaters. The creators also introduce a kernel mode driver, installed on the computer along with Call of Duty, which will not be able to be turned off. It will check software and applications trying to interact and affect the running game. It will provide the security team with data to increase security in Call of Duty. The driver is developed internally for the Call of Duty series and will be released later this year in CoD: Warzone. A version for Call of Duty: Vanguard is also in preparation, but its introduction will take place at a later date.
The kernel driver will be available only on PC, but the RICOCHET Anti-Cheat system itself will also benefit console players playing cross-platform with PC players.
RICOCHET Anti-Cheat. Fight against cheaters in the new Call of Duty
The creators emphasize that the new anti-cheat system will be safe and will not violate the privacy of players:
- The RICOCHET Anti-Cheat kernel level driver only works when playing Call of Duty: Warzone on PC.
- RICOCHET Anti-Cheat is not permanently enabled.
- RICOCHET Anti-Cheat monitors software and applications that interact with Call of Duty: Warzone.
- After exiting Call of Duty: Warzone, the driver shuts down.
Will the new security features work? Let’s hope it works out this time. While the existing tools seemed to be somewhat of an egyptian, hackers and other scammers quickly found a way to circumvent them. Suffice it to mention the Battlefield 2042 open beta that took place last week. Before players could fully familiarize themselves with the new mechanics and maps, Easy Anti-Cheat’s security quickly fell in the fight against cheaters. The game was flooded by a lot of people who are not able to conduct fair play, and there are offers of tools to bypass security on the web.
