Activision has announced some important details on its upcoming anti-cheat for its call of duty games. The new anti-cheat, which will be released later this year with Call of Duty: Vanguard and its integration in Call of Duty: Warzone, will be known as Ricochet.
In a blog post Activision Ricochet describes as a robust anti-cheat system that is supported by a team of committed professionals focusing on the fight against unfair game . Ricochet is essentially an initiative that consists of multiple components, from server-side technology, an improved examination process when recognizing cheaters and a new kernel-level driver for PC users.
The Ricochet Anti-Cheat initiative is a multi-faceted approach to combating fraud with new server-side tools for monitoring analyzes to detect fraud, improved examination processes to eliminate scams, updates to increase account security and more, says Activision. [Ricochet s] Backend anti-cheat security features are introduced together with Call of Duty: Vanguard and later this year with the Pacific Update for Call of Duty: Warzone.
In addition to Ricochet Anti-Cheat s server improvements, a new driver is being launched on PC kernel level, which has been developed internally for the Call of Duty franchise and started first for Call of Duty: Warzone. Activision confirmed The fact that the kernel level driver is published during the integration of Vanguard to the Battle Royale during the Pacific Map Update. This means, however, that this special technology is not immediately applied to the Vanguard multiplayer on the PC.
While anti-cheats working with kernel-level technology have triggered debates about the privacy of the users, Activision wants to calm the players and explicitly says that the driver on kernel level only when playing Call of Duty: Warzone the PC works . It is turned on when the game is started, and turned off when you stop it, and is not active when the game is not running.
Further technical information about how RICOCHET works can be found below here the complete blog post.
Activision not only specifies all the details of what will change in the introduction of ricochet, but will also try to constantly update and improve its anti-cheat.
We are determined and determined to develop the Ricochet Anti-Cheat system over time and fight for the community against those who want to spoil their gaming experience.
While Activision has been forbidden since the start of the game hundreds of thousands of chatters, it was incredibly easy to handle the systems to stop them. Hackers have plagued Warzone Lobbies, competitions in Call of Duty-E-Sport were littered with fraud allegations, and players have found a way to unlawfully release weapons and cosmetics in the game.
It sounds so as if a lot of effort was operated with Ricochet to put an end to all, but we have to wait until November to see if it really can do something.
