RICOCHET anti-cheat is now active in COD: Vanguard

Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone have been fighting a long and well documented battle against cheats.

Now, Activision has rolled out the rather drastic Ricochet anti-cheat for Season 3.

Ricochet was announced a while ago, and tested in Warzone, to much controversy.

Ricochet is a kernel-level program which gives it vastly more access to your device and data than is usually expected.

Activision went ahead with Ricochet at full steam, and now the anti-cheat is live in Call of Duty: Vanguard multiplayer.

Ricochet uses cloaking, damage shield and other features beyond regular bans to combat cheaters.

Only time will tell truly how effective it turns out to be, though initial numbers are promising.
