RICOCHET Anti Cheat Drops the Ban Hammer on 48,000 Call of Duty Cheaters

The first wave of ban hammers using the new software

Publisher Activision has recently announced that 48,000 cheater accounts were banned across Call of Duty: Warzone and Vanguard thanks to their new RICOCHET anti cheat software.

Earlier this year, Warzone co-developer Raven Software have announced that they have banned more than half a million cheater accounts.

This is the first official ban wave announced since RICOCHET’s launch, and in terms of accounts banned, it would appear that the software has been effective so far.

The kernel-level driver will only operate when the program is active on PC. It checks whether or not players are using external programs while playing the game. Moreover, the driver is not always ‘on’ though. It will shut down the moment the game running it closes as well. Additionally, the kernel-level driver only monitors and reports activity related to that specific game.
