Tuesday 23 December, 48 05 accounts have been banned from Call of Duty Vanguard and Call of Duty Warzone . This is obviously not the first wave of sanctions recorded on titles of the famous franchise, and it is a safe bet that the next figures are in the same waters.
After the unofficial announcement of a new anti-piracy system in Call of Duty games, one could naively say that this warning would be enough to curb the ardor of some. But we can understand that these cheaters persisted, because the measures envisaged to be put in place were not necessarily going to upset them that much.
But let’s remember this release, very official this time , from Activision as to the new penalties to be expected for fraudsters. The latter thus exposed themselves to being banned from any online mode of the series. The taste for risk being visibly more succulent than that of caution, the publisher has again raged these days.
Call of Duty Warzone and Vanguard: first step of the anti-cheat system
Wednesday 05 December 2021, the official Call of Duty Twitter account reported that the day before, 23 000 cheater accounts had been banned on Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Vanguard . The RICOCHET Team is by the way thanked for its action in this file.
VGC recalls that last August, Activision announced more than 48 bans on Call of Duty: Warzone since its launch in March 2020. As for the anti-cheating system mentioned many times, a first part was deployed last week for Call of Duty: Warzone . More specifically, it is a driver that is installed at the same time as the update of Warzone Pacific from Battle.net. And without it, it is impossible to play the game on PC.
This driver “works with elevated privileges on your computer, being able to access all the resources of your system while it is running ”. As a result, cheating software running in the background is likely to be detected by this system. Which one should be deployed for Call of Duty: Vanguard on a date later. Until then, that the fraudsters take advantage of the time that they have left and that the honest players show restraint. Even abstinence.
