Call of Duty: Warzone Fans Are Questioning Ricochet’s Effectiveness
Call of Duty: Warzone fans are complaining about the amount of cheating they have observed in Season 4. It has come to light that the presence of cheaters is still prevalent despite the running anti-cheat Ricochet software.
The newest season launched to the gaming community earlier this month. Since launch, players have shared clips of suspicious plays. “It has been really bad the last couple weeks,” one Call of Duty: Warzone player complained. “Getting to be unplayable.”
This sentiment is shared among multiple players. Others have even started to believe that perhaps devs turned off the anti-cheat software for some reason. “Ricochet must be on vacation this week,” wrote another fan. At the moment, there is no response from Activision’s team regarding the matter. However, they did reason in this month’s progress report that “anti-cheat solutions work like anti-virus software.”
“We know all the nefarious ways cheaters try to impact the game to ruin your experience,” they explained. “While our team has been able to establish systems that can quickly detect and respond to bad behaviors, we know tomorrow will continue to deliver new and evolving threats.”
They want Call of Duty: Warzone players to understand that tackling in-game cheating is an ongoing battle for them. This is most likely because the cheaters will always find new ways to exploit the game and bypass safeguards.
“Will you encounter cheaters? Sadly, perhaps yes,” they continued. “But we are working endlessly to be faster and better to get them out of the game by force or by annoyance and let you focus on fun.”
Call of Duty: Warzone devs confirmed that Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 will feature the Ricochet software at launch. “Ricochet Anti-Cheat continues to get smarter and better as time progresses,” they added. “Our team uses that knowledge to protect against bad behavior and punish bad actors.”
