Ricochet is the official name of the new Warzone and Vanguard anti-cheat. It’s a PC Kernel-Level driver that is hard to breach, and hackers have a rough time dealing with it. The developer announced that Ricochet’s latest PC Kernel-Level driver is ready to launch. The driver boots up and becomes active only when the game is booted, so there’s nothing to worry about, they justified.
RICOCHET Anti-Cheat is already live across Call of Duty: Vanguard and Call of Duty: Warzone with server-side updates and other backend elements to combat cheating.
With the launch of Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific tomorrow, #TeamRICOCHET continues its new anti-cheat security initiative with the rollout of an internally developed PC kernel-level driver for Warzone, which will activate first in the Asia-Pacific region before expanding worldwide.
Today’s anti-cheat progress blog outlines what we expect from the driver as a new weapon in the fight against unfair play.
Another company in the gaming industry has finally replicated riot Games’ Valorant anti-cheat approach. Raven Software is excited to see other companies following suit, and they want nothing more than for gamers everywhere to have a breather from cheaters. There will no longer be a ruining gameplay experience.
An update from #TeamRICOCHET on our progress fighting against unfair play.
