Activision had already announced during the day that it would be tougher against cheaters in Call of Duty will proceed. This has now become this Ricochet Anti-Cheat Tool presented.
Riecochet is described as a robust anti-cheat system backed by a team of dedicated professionals focused on fighting unfair gaming. To do this, a multi-faceted approach to combating fraud is used with new server-side tools that monitor analyzes, detect fraud, and use improved processes to eliminate cheaters, plus updates to increase account security and more.
Players are still asked to take active action against cheaters. Reporting players will therefore remain a critical element of all anti-cheat measures, which is why it remains important that players continue to report suspicious behavior they encounter online.
Another layer in the fight against cheaters is the evolving use of machine learning (ML algorithms) which examine gameplay data from the server and help identify suspicious behavioral trends and add another layer of security to the entire RICOCHET anti-cheat initiative.
Another element of security is making sure that players’ accounts are protected. Two-factor authentication is therefore extremely important for the security of your accounts and is highly recommended in Call of Duty to use.
RICOCHET’s anti-cheat tools come with Call of Duty: Vanguard and later this year with the Pacific update for Call of Duty: Warzone introduced. More details are available on the Activision blog.
