Call of Duty Vanguard new screenshots-1

Call of Duty’s kernel-level anti-cheat RICOCHET has already been leaked to cheat developers

Yesterday, Activision and Raven announced a new kernel-level anti-cheat system for Call of Duty Warzone and Call of Duty Vanguard, RICOCHET. However, it appears that this anti-cheat system has already been leaked to cheat developers.

As we’ve reported, 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.

This leak is obviously bad news for Call of Duty Warzone and Vanguard as cheaters will be most likely present on launch day. Some speculate that this was an “intentional” leak. However, this seems unlikely (at least in our opinion).

It will be interesting to see how Activision and Raven will respond to this!
