Season 1 of Warzone Pacific has gone live, much to the excitement of the Call of Duty community. In addition to the brand-new Caldera map and guns, players will get the opportunity to jump into the new multiplayer maps along with the Battle Pass featuring exciting tier rewards.

Activision has introduced a new anti-cheat known as RICOCHET to counter any hackers. It comes with a kernel-level security system specially made to prevent players from gaining an unfair advantage.

The developers of RICOCHET answered a few questions in the blog post revealing that the initial rollout will begin with the Asia-Pacific region before expanding worldwide. Sledgehammer Games announced the launch of RICOCHET on November 12th, which coincided with Call of Duty Vanguard’s release.

“This strategic launch approach allows us to monitor stability, collect feedback, and make any required updates before expanding the rollout,” one of the devs stated in the blog post.

As a result of the decision, gamers in Europe and North America will have to wait until the kernel-level driver is in place before they can play with minimal risk of encountering a cheater. It'll be interesting to see if the new system has an impact on Warzone hackers.
