Call of Duty Vanguard: Activision inserts the Ricochet anti-cheat system

After the warning given to the cheaters, the parent company of Call of Duty has unveiled Ricochet, the new system used in Vanguard against cheats

Call of Duty Vanguard will be out soon, and players are already predicting the worst from what’s happening in Warzone, with multiplayer matches constantly harassed by users who use cheats, and glitches within the game. The title has yet to reveal the zombie mode, now fundamental among those present in the series; however, before doing this it is necessary to instill a little quiet among fans, as cheaters seem to be able to overcome any measure that should prevent their appearance.

In recent days, Activision had already anticipated a new provision; we didn’t have to wait long to see what it was: in fact, the company has revealed Ricochet, the new anti-cheat system launched on PC through Call of Duty Vanguard and which will then also be included in Warzone.

The new Call of Duty Vanguard anti-cheat system is therefore called Ricochet: it is a system also used in other titles, such as Fortnite and Apex Legends, which works at the kernel level: basically, it will be able to access a wide range of software and applications on your PC, including graphics card drivers. With that, the anti-cheat driver will be able to better detect any suspicious behavior, and will give developers more data on how to deal with cheaters. Still, some users don’t really appreciate this addition, as the system will also be able to monitor and manage their data beyond the application layer.

Ricochet will stand out from other systems thanks to a more extensive improvement in safety COD Warzone and Vanguard, and the two-factor verification system and player reporting will also remain present. Call of Duty Vanguard will be released on November 5th, on PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X and PC.
