As part of the developer’s initiative to combat the rise of unfair play, Raven Software has rolled out the COD Warzone Pacific RICOCHET Anti-Cheat alongside a progress report on how the system has been working so far. Check out the details straight from a Call of Duty blog posting below and see if you’re part of the RICOCHET rollout that has been happening.
As revealed in the blog, it appears that the anti-cheat has been officially live on some servers. The anti-cheat system has been rolled out in anticipation for COD Warzone Pacific which is launching tomorrow for Vanguard owners (December 9 for everyone else):
RICOCHET Anti-CheatTM is already live across Call of Duty®: Vanguard and Call of Duty: Warzone™ with server-side updates and other backend elements to combat cheating.
With the launch of Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific tomorrow, #TeamRICOCHET continues its new anti-cheat security initiative with the rollout of an internally developed PC kernel-level driver for Warzone, which will activate first in the Asia-Pacific region before expanding worldwide.
The developers also shared an FAQ on RICOCHET to help player acclimate to this new anti-cheat system:
Q- Where does the rollout plan begin?
Initial rollout will begin first within the Asia-Pacific region before expanding worldwide.
Q- I am not located in the Asia-Pacific region. When does the rollout expand to my region?
#Team Ricochet will provide updates, including when the PC kernel-level driver rollout expands, across our franchise and studio social channels.
Q- When Warzone Pacific launches, what will I see?
When you boot up Warzone Pacific, you’ll see the RICOCHET Anti-Cheat logo as part of the game’s loading screen. The kernel-driver installation process is automatic. Once available, when Warzone Pacific launches, the driver will launch with the game. When you exit the game, the driver will shut down.
Q- What can I expect from RICOCHET Anti-Cheat?
RICOCHET Anti-Cheat is an evolving initiative that will grow stronger as its systems learn more about cheating behavior. #TeamRICOCHET is committed to continuously monitoring and updating our security measures to fight unfair play. Every update we make forces cheaters to change their tactics, which provides us with more information to identify and expel them from the community. You can help the team by reporting cheaters as they happen:
Warzone Pacific is launching a day early tomorrow for COD Vanguard owners, so if you’re playing on PC in the Asia-Pacific region let us know if you’ve noticed any changes with regards to cheaters in-game.
