One major part of this new anti-cheat solution is a a kernel-level driver for PC that’ll sit on players’ computers and monitor for applications “that attempt to interact and manipulate Call of Duty” in an unsportsmanlike manner.
“The software turns on when you start Call of Duty: Warzone and shuts down when you close the game,” says Activision.
“Plus, the kernel-level driver only monitors and reports activity related to Call of Duty.”
Ricochet’s server-side anti-cheat backend will initially launch alongside Call of Duty: Vanguard on 5th November before making its way to Warzone as part of the Pacific update.
