Call of Duty Warzone Pacific adds support for the anti-cheat system, Ricochet

In October 2021, we informed you about the new anti-cheat system that would be coming to both Call of Duty Warzone and Vanguard. And today, Activision and Raven Software announced that Call of Duty Warzone’s latest update adds support for RICOCHET.

As the teams have stated:

“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.”

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.

RICOCHET Anti-Cheat’s kernel-level driver operates only while playing Call of Duty: Warzone on PC. This driver will monitor the software and applications that interact with Call of Duty: Warzone. Additionally, the team claims that this anti-cheat will not be always-on.

Furthermore, RICOCHET will use machine learning (AI) in order to further improve its security. Not only that, but Raven suggests using the two-factor authentication method in order to protect your account.

Activision and Raven Software will provide updates on when the PC kernel-level driver rollout expands in other regions via their social channels.
