Despite the presence of an anti-cheat, Warzone 2 hackers continue to slip through the net much to the annoyance of players dropping into Al Mazrah and Ashika Island. Whether it’s aimbots or the ability to see through walls, encountering an opponent with an unfair advantage is far from ideal.

With attention slowly moving towards the Season Two Reloaded update, fans aren’t best pleased with the current state of the battle royale. Statistics reveal a meta SMG never received a major nerf and the arrival of AI to Ashika Island hasn’t gone down well.

On top of this, there are many members of the community that believe Ricochet isn’t working after battling a cheater during a recent match.

Does Ricochet actually work?

According to Reddit user Triple777Zach, Call of Duty’s dedicated anti-cheat is failing to stop cheaters ruining matches. While attempting to secure a loadout drop, the player and their squad were decimated by a cheater.

“This was such blatant hacking. I ended up watching the game after our squad died.” says the player. “I think it’s safe to say the other teammates may have been hacking as well.” They’re not the only one noticing a sudden influx of cheaters impacting Call of Duty. “I noticed an influx of cheaters in MP,” reports another fan dropping into Modern Warfare 2.

Activision continues to clamp down on hackers and cheat providers. On February 13, a judge ruled the developers behind a well-known cheat provider are liable to pay the publisher $3 million in damages. Hopefully, this is a catalyst for a drastic reduction in the number of cheaters dropping into Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer.

The team behind Ricochet are constantly monitoring the cheaters and there’s a high possibility of the ban hammer swinging in the not-too-distant future.
