Two months ago, Activision presented to everyone its greatest strike force, Ricochet, for put an end to a scourge that has continued to spread in the various opuses of the series: cheating.
Many have wondered about the potential effectiveness of the system developed by Activision, even more when a fault was detected shortly after its announcement. However, the publisher did not give up and continued his drastic measures to put an end to the abuses of certain players. Newly introduced in Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Vanguard, Ricochet killed two birds with one stone on both games in the series by hitting hard in the space of a day!
Contrary to Call of Duty: Vanguard who took a blast from the players when it was released, Call of Duty: WarzoneHe is doing wonderfully, especially since he has just acquired a brand new card thanks to the Pacific update and launch festive events. However, popularity means a massive influx of players and, potentially, a small percentage of cheaters in the lot! Activision anticipated this situation and therefore launched its anti-cheat system shortly after the introduction of the Caldera map.
A measure greatly appreciated by players who have constantly alerted the publisher to the impact of such players and such practices on the multiplayer experience offered by Call of Duty games. Nonetheless, since its introduction, Ricochet has had an extremely positive impact on the gaming ecosystem. : For example, a good number of cheating sellers have packed their bags, when other players, fond of these practices, have been fired by Activision.

Just over a week after its launch, Ricochet managed to sort out the unscrupulous players, even managing to ban nearly 50,000 accounts in the space of a day, on December 21.. While it is already making a strong impression overall, the system continues to adapt, day in and day out, collecting data and examining trends to be as efficient as possible. Cheaters are warned: with Ricochet, we are not laughing!
