Update on RICOCHET Anti-Cheat has just been announced by the developers behind the Call of Duty franchise, in the announcement they talk about changes to the security enforcement policy, and future progress for the Anti-Cheat.

Call of Duty: Vanguard has recently launched for the public to play and many people are running into hackers that are able to see you thru walls along with other cheats, so people have been curious what’s going on with the Anti-Cheat.

After around a month or so, the team over at Call of Duty has officially given us an update on RICOCHET Anti-Cheat, launching on December 2nd with the release of the new Pacific Warzone map we will get to see if it holds up to expectations.


Update on RICOCHET Anti-Cheat

Call of Duty: Vanguard enjoyed its first weekend since launch, and fans from around the globe have been grinding progress across multiple modes. November 5th was also the launch of server-side upgrades to anti-cheat security, as part of the RICOCHET Anti-Cheat™ initiative.



In its first progress report, #TeamRICOCHET shares updates from Vanguard’s release, a change to its security enforcement policy, and the latest enforcement updates for Warzone™.


Post-Launch Update

The RICOCHET Anti-Cheat team continues to actively monitor Call of Duty: Vanguard, issuing bans throughout launch. Additionally, in coordination with Sledgehammer Games, #TeamRICOCHET has worked to resolve exploits related to XP earn rates and unlocks.

As always player reports are vital for security enforcement, and we ask any player that encounters cheating behavior to submit reports as incidents occur. Your reports help us:


  • Identify and/or confirm cheaters
  • Collect valuable information about cheating behavior
  • Prioritize security enforcement


All our anti-cheat efforts are focused on fighting unfair play and protecting the player experience. Launching the server updates as part of the RICOCHET Anti-Cheat system is the first step in our new anti-cheat security initiative and we’re working hard to make things as frustrating as possible for cheaters.


Call of Duty: Warzone

Now less than a month away from the release of the new Warzone Pacific update, we’ve expanded our enforcement process resulting in more frequent banwaves that halt game access to cheaters and account resellers.

#TeamRICOCHET is preparing for the arrival of the next phase, adding an update on RICOCHET Anti-Cheat system, the new PC kernel-level driver. Warzone will be the first title to receive the driver, launching alongside the Pacific update in December. The kernel-level driver, which is one element of the multi-faceted RICOCHET Anti-Cheat system, will be added to Call of Duty: Vanguard at a later date.

For more information on RICOCHET Anti-Cheat and the PC kernel-level driver, read the official announcement blog.


Change to Our Security Enforcement Policy

We have made changes to our security enforcement policy for Call of Duty: Vanguard.

Extreme or repeated violations of the security policy – such as in-game cheating – may result in a permanent suspension of all accounts. Additionally, any attempt to hide, disguise, or obfuscate your identity or the identity of your hardware devices may also result in a permanent suspension.



Permanent suspensions for security infractions may now apply franchise wide, including Call of Duty: Vanguard as well as any past, present, and future titles in the Call of Duty franchise.


Future Progress Reports

#TeamRICOCHET is focused on keeping the RICOCHET Anti-Cheat up to date. We will provide updates on our mainline and studio social channels as well as the Call of Duty blog when possible.
