The post revealed that their team is preparing for the arrival of the next phase in the RICOCHET anti-cheat system, the new PC kernel-level driver. With fans excited for the Pacific update for Warzone, the kernel-level driver will be added to Warzone in December.

Sledgehammer Games published a Tweet, saying "We are enforcing anti-cheat security measures in #Vanguard already, including issuing account bans and resolving exploits related to XP earn rates & unlocks. More to come."

Cheaters have been known for ruining the overall experience of Warzone players for a long time, and the anti-cheat update aims to deplete their numbers in order for a fair environment for everyone. Call of Duty: Warzone will be the first title to receive the kernel-level driver, which is one element of the multi-faceted RICOCHET anti-cheat system.

When is the RICOCHET Anti-Cheat Update Coming?

RICOCHET'S anti-cheat update will be officially launching alongside the Warzone Pacific update on December 3rd and the community is hoping that this will reduce the number of cheaters in-game. The anti-cheat is also expected to be added to Vanguard at a later date. For more intel on Warzone, check out all of the known points of interest appearing on the Caldera map.
