An anti-cheat watchdog group is warning players that the pacific update could be riddled with cheaters thanks to Ricochet software leaking before launch.
Activision have been hyping players up for the new anti-cheat known as Ricochet, although cheat developers may already be working on reversing the anti-cheat and it may not take them that long.
A leaked version of the kernel-level driver was made available to cheat developers giving them a head start in preparing cheats for the game. Anti-Cheat Police Department claims the hackers are ready for Ricochets release when it releases with the Vanguard integration.
Watchdog claims Warzone cheats will be out on day one.
Call of Duty have denied that the kernel-level driver was leaked, but AntiCheat Police Department claim that this doesn’t change the fact that hackers can easily “destroy” the obfuscator used in the driver easily.
“Cheat devs can quickly destroy it within hours. I hope the obfuscator you use on release is better than what’s shown,” they tweeted in a response to Call of Duty’s message.
“The game is too close to release, and I really doubt you have something ready against that. I have seen the driver be completely de-obfuscated within hours and cheat devs be able to obtain the information they need,”
“ I would not be surprised for day 1 cheats.”
Warzones new Pacific map is releasing sometime after the release of Call of Duty: Vanguard in 2021. So we won’t have long to wait to find out if their claims are true.
