Activision announced that RICOCHET, the anti-cheat system of Call of Duty: Warzone, is already active all over the world.
The driver was originally rolled out in some countries last week but is now available to all gamers on PC. “Our initial launch in Asia Pacific focused on software stability,” the company explained.
“We were also able to capture valuable information on the behavior of the cheaters. “What we discovered helped the team continue to develop security updates for all users,” he added.
RICOCHET was not only developed for Warzone, will also be used in Vanguard at some point, but no one knows when. In this regard, Activision only mentioned that the system will come to its new game later.
The global launch of the RICOCHET Anti-Cheat kernel-level driver on PC is the next stage of our expanding security efforts. Combating unfair play will be a continuous effort, but a battle we are dedicated to fighting.

The developer also said that the RICOCHET team has continued to release waves of bans targeting account resellers.
The idea is for the driver to be an iron curtain in the fight against hackers, a problem that has plagued the game since its launch in March 2020. Hundreds of thousands of accounts have been banned, but that has only slightly dampened the tide. of online cheats.
“The RICOCHET driver is just one element of a multifaceted anti-cheat security initiative, which also includes game monitoring, server security updates, account authentication updates and more,” said Activision. “The driver is part of a larger system.”
“The team is focused on continuous monitoring and rapid iteration of the anti-cheat security systems of Vanguard Y Warzone“said the company.” Fighting unfair play will be a continuous effort, but also a battle that we are dedicated to fighting, “he concluded. For now, we can only hope that their efforts bear fruit.
