Activision is bringing out the big guns to deal with hackers. The company is introducing new anti-cheat measures to ban offenders from every Call of Duty game at once.
The Call of Duty series has always had cheaters. But now, it looks like Activision is finally committed to stomping them out for good. Players can potentially be banned from all Call of Duty games by receiving an Activision ban.
These Activision bans are intended to be used on “extreme or repeated violations“. It’s quite difficult to track down cheaters or hackers. However, it seems the company is hoping these bans might deter people from trying.
These bans are a part of the new RICOCHET Anti-cheat system. This is a new system being utilised in Call of Duty: Vanguard and Call of Duty: Warzone.
Activision claims “Extreme or repeated violations of the security policy – such as in-game cheating – may result in a permanent suspension of all accounts. Additionally, any attempt to hide, disguise, or obfuscate your identity or the identity of your hardware devices may also result in a permanent suspension.“
“Permanent suspensions for security infractions may now apply franchise wide, including Call of Duty: Vanguard as well as any past, present, and future titles in the Call of Duty franchise.“
We’ll have to see if Activision can follow through and stamp out cheating in Call of Duty for good.
