Activision Is Already Warning About This Problem in Modern Warfare 2
Due to the aggressive cheating rampant in online multiplayer games, Activision implemented the RICOCHET Anti-Cheat program to deal with the issues surrounding modern entries like “Warzone” and “Vanguard.” While highly successful in the first few months (as many players agreed on Reddit), RICOCHET has stated problems may carry over to future installments.
The team described its most recent progress to curb cheating in a blog post on the official “Call of Duty” website, prioritizing mitigation as a tool supporting banning — not replacing it. Unfortunately, while the initiative has made great strides, the post predicted players could continue to face obstacles in the upcoming “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2” and “Warzone 2.”
Players of those games will still likely encounter cheaters, as combating them is an ever-evolving arms race: Cheaters develop new, subversive ways to cheat, RICOCHET responds with fresh mitigation measures, and the cycle repeats. Fortunately, RICOCHET’s measures have resulted in immense improvements and bode well for the future of the series.
