Activision Begins Using Ricochet To Combat Cheating

On October 13th, Activision unveiled its new anti-cheating program, Ricochet. This system will be used to prevent cheating and other malicious activities in the organization’s hit franchise Call of Duty, which has reportedly been a longstanding problem for the series, according to VentureBeat.

The system will be used in Call of Duty: Warzone for now, with the expectation for it to be integrated into Call of Duty: Vanguard when the game debuts later this year. Some of the features that come with the program include server-sider tools that monitor analytics, enhanced investigation processes, upgraded account security, and more.

“When RICOCHET Anti-Cheat launches, we intend to amplify its arrival, both in-game and by using our communication channels – our blog, social media, and other forms of outreach – to keep everyone informed,” Activision said in a blog post. “The RICOCHET Anti-Cheat team’s commitment is the relentless pursuit of fair play, which is fought against the sophisticated issue of cheating. We are dedicated and determined to evolve the RICOCHET Anti-Cheat System over time, fighting for the community against those that aim to spoil their gaming experience.”

Call of Duty: Vanguard is the latest installment in the world-famous franchise. The game is expected to hit stores worldwide on November 5th, 2021.
