Call of Duty: Warzone, ban for 90,000 cheaters in one week thanks to Ricochet

Call of Duty: Warzone, ban for 90,000 cheaters in one week thanks to Ricochet

Call of Duty

Since the integration of the Ricochet anti-cheat system, Activision Blizzard has shown that it wants to manage the phenomenon of cheating on Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone with an iron fist. For example, this week alone over 90,000 crafty ones have been banned, a truly impressive number.

The confirmation as usual came via the official Call of Duty Twitter profile, which published the inevitable joke clip, with the soldier armed with a hammer with the word "ban" superimposed, thus simulating the famous "ban hammer".

The phenomenon of cheating is now a real plague in the panorama of multiplayer titles. There are sites that sell full-fledged subscription packages that include cheats like wall hack (to see enemies and loot through walls and any surface), aimbot (auto aim), and much more. Those in possession of similar tools obviously have a significant advantage over other players, thus compromising the multiplayer experience. This is especially the case in a free-to-play game like Call of Duty: Warzone, which, given its free nature, is more likely to attract dishonest players.

In any case, in the comments to the tweet, mostly there are those who congratulate the developers for this wave, or rather tsunami, of bans, which makes the multiplayer experience more livable and healthy. However, there are those who claim that Ricochet also affects innocent players in the pile and indeed there are some users who claim to have been unjustly sanctioned. Undoubtedly on so many banned accounts there will certainly have been a very small percentage of false positives. In this sense, Activision suggests unjustly sanctioned users to contact official support.

Meanwhile, Call of Duty: Warzone continues to be constantly supported by developers, for example Rebirth Island will undergo some changes next week.

Call of Duty Warzone”s Rebirth Island gets a refresh next week

Activision has announced that Call of Duty: Warzone’s Rebirth Island is getting a “facelift” next week.

Developer Raven Software has teased the changes coming to Call of Duty: Warzone on its official Twitter account. Nothing was mentioned in the tweet’s text, only writing “Reloaded and Reinforced, next week Rebirth Island gets a facelift.” But eagle-eyed fans will be able to look at the image of the title card of Rebirth Island Reinforced, and see a map that hints at the changes coming.

One of the more noticeable changes seems to be a change of the security area to a stronghold, as well as now having a couple of ships at the docks. But aside from those easier to find differences, what specifically will be new in the update remains to be seen when Call of Duty: Warzone gets its Rebirth Island refresh sometime next week. A specific time and date were not confirmed for when the refresh would be coming.

Rebirth Island has been around in Call of Duty: Warzone since December 2020, when it launched as part of the first season of Black Ops Cold War content. But the island has not seen any changes since it launched, so Rebirth Island Reinforced will be the first significant changeup of the island.

Last year, several Raven Software and Activision Blizzard employees staged a walkout due to a number of QA staff being laid off, despite being promised full-time positions. In January, Activision commented on the situation, saying, “Activision is deeply committed to the wellbeing of all of our teams, including our QA workforce. Raven leadership has engaged in dialogue with its staff to hear concerns and explain the company’s overall investment in development resources.”

Activision QA employees at Raven Software then began the process of forming a union later on in January, with Activision Blizzard having been accused of ‘union-busting’ in the time since then.

In other news, Ubisoft has revealed a new piece of cloud computing technology called Ubisoft Scalar.
