Some players of the “Call of Duty” series of shooting games like to use cheating programs to destroy the balance and fairness of the game. Activision established Team Ricochet to combat cheating players. Team Ricochet is composed of security system, game and server engineers, research institutes, data analysts and other talents, and publishes an anti-cheating progress report in the middle of the month to disclose the work progress.
Team Ricochet said that dealing with cheating players is like dealing with viruses, and effective solutions are temporary, because players will cheat in other ways. Team Ricochet needs to constantly develop new tools to deal with the ever-changing threats. One of the new methods mentioned in the report is called Disarm (disarm), as the name implies, remove all the weapons of the cheating player.
Disarm will be used in the two games “Call of Duty: Pioneer” and “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare”. Once the player detects cheating, the weapon will be taken away by the system. What’s more exaggerated is that the two fists cannot be used. Can’t even throw a punch. Team Ricochet revealed that the anti-cheat system will also be operational on the same day that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.0 launch. Since April this year, more than 180,000 players have been blocked for cheating in Call of Duty: Vanguard and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
