New Activision anti-cheat team RICOCHET rolls first update since launch

Call of Duty’s Vanguard has had its fair share of troubles with cheaters to the point where big names are threatening to quit the game.

Ever since Warzone grew in popularity, the cheating problem grew along and what made it beyond anyone’s control was how easily Vanguard, the anti-cheat was easily penetrated by cheaters. Activision made several efforts to remedy the issue but came up empty-handed given how cheaters have always found a way around it.

Activision can be often found announcing the number of cheaters they have banned but given the game is free, it is of no use. To counter this problem, they decided to launch a team solely focused on improving the anti-cheat, named RICHOCHET.

“The RICOCHET Anti-Cheat team continues to actively monitor Call of Duty: Vanguard, issuing bans throughout launch,” the blog post said. “Additionally, in coordination with Sledgehammer Games, #TeamRICOCHET has worked to resolve exploits related to XP earn rates and unlocks.” read their official statement.

“Extreme or repeated violations of the security policy – such as in-game cheating – may result in a permanent suspension of all accounts,” the post read. “Additionally, any attempt to hide, disguise or obfuscate your identity or the identity of your hardware devices may also result in a permanent suspension. Permanent suspensions for security infractions may now apply franchise-wide, including Call of Duty: Vanguard as well as any past, present, and future titles in the Call of Duty franchise.”

The new update comes with a lot of promise given how the future of the game largely banks on it. Unless it shows some signs of improvement, more and more players are likely to leave the game for good.
