Dr Disrespect accuses Warzone developers of bogus advertising on Ricochet anti-cheat
Streaming star Dr Disrespect has accused the developers of Call of Duty: Warzone of bogus advertising on the Ricochet anti-cheat after falling victim to a rather suspicious player.
Despite all of Warzone’s successes over the past couple of years, battle royale’s struggles with cheaters and hackers have been well documented. Raven Software has, over time, banned many cheaters but only introduced one anti-cheat with CoD: Vanguard integration.
While the anti-cheat seemed to be doing its job at the start of the onboarding period, players complained about a recent influx of cheaters, saying they may have found a way to make their cheaters undetectable.
In the case of Dr. Disrespect, who took a hiatus from Warzone like many others as the cheaters got out of hand, he also has doubts that Ricochet will be fully operational by the minute.
During their January 7 stream, Two-Time settled in for a little Warzone session when they encountered a few issues, mostly with their connection to servers.
However, before trying to fix these issues, he was shot by a player who appeared to be a little suspect. Not only were they aiming well, but they’d already shot the Doc before he was really visible from cover.
“That pirate guy, isn’t he?” One hundred percent? “The streamer said with a shocked look on his face after watching the resulting kill cam.” So they lied to us about Ricochet. That’s a bogus commercial, huh.
The Doc asked his viewers for answers, many said they had recently encountered hackers after a period without them.
It’s unclear if anything has changed that allowed cheaters to bypass Ricochet’s controls, but it looks like they’re becoming more and more common. However, we’ll have to wait and see if there are any other changes to eliminate them.
