Call of Duty: Vanguard receives Ricochet anti-cheat update
The latest Ricochet anti-cheat security driver has rolled out in Call of Duty: Vanguard.
Activision says that the new release includes all upgrades that were made to the driver since it was added in Call of Duty: Warzone. It also includes new updates arriving first in Vanguard.
“After a period of examining how these updates are functioning with today’s global rollout, they will also be applied to the driver for Warzone to bring parity for anti-cheat drivers across both titles. This is a necessary step when making significant updates to our anti-cheat system and to minimize any issues players may encounter,” Activision explains.
The developer says that it is listening to the community to make sure that anyone who is banned due to cheating is removed from the leaderboards. The company has banned an additional 54,000 accounts since the last update. The bans occur on a daily basis even if announcements are not made publicly.
“Of course, we understand that for every advancement we make in anti-cheat, cheaters are working to circumvent those updates,” Activision says. “For this reason, we encourage players to continue to use in-game reporting tools. If you see a cheater in the wild, report it. This information is invaluable to make new updates in the fight against unfair play.”
Call of Duty: Vanguard launched last fall for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
