After the release of the latest installment in the Call of Duty series, Vanguard, Activision has unveiled their newest anti-cheat system called Ricochet. It appears that Call of Duty cheaters are now subject to heavier restrictions—even going as far as banning them from the whole franchise. 

Possible Punishments For Call Of Duty Cheaters

The policy issued by Activision called “Call of Duty: Vanguard Security and Enforcement Policy” lists the possible reasons why players can get banned. A specific section tackles the definitions inside the policy, which are categorized as account under review, minor offense, temporary suspensions, permanent suspensions, and extreme offense.

The definition for permanent suspension is indeed eye-catching because it is described as “lasting and final, and can apply across this title and past, present, or future titles in the Call of Duty franchise.” There are many ways where a player can get permanently suspended, like pirating content, spoofing, and circumventing security. The whole list is viewable here.  

The California-based video game publisher said that “The RICOCHET Anti-Cheat initiative is a multi-faceted approach to combat cheating, featuring new server-side tools which monitor analytics to identify cheating, enhanced investigation processes to stamp out cheaters, updates to strengthen account security, and more.”


Ricochet is a kernel-level driver, which means it is given a high level of authorization to monitor software on your PC. The anti-cheat will report applications that may be interacting with Vanguard. It really is a time to rejoice for gamers of the franchise since this would be a great start to battling unfair play and protecting the player experience. Activision heard the public’s request to lessen the prevalence of cheating in the Call of Duty franchise.

The anti-cheat system will also be available for Warzone

  • You can literally spoof it in 15 minutes. What they need is AI anti cheat that can run with games to process impossible reactions/speeds. This won’t do anything. It’s a participation trophy for all the streamers that left with how bad Warzone got. Doubt it’ll work for long. The hackers are always several steps ahead and have been for years.
