Ricochet Anti-Cheat Development Team told about new methods to combat unscrupulous players that have already been implemented in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, released today, November 10th.
The new measure was called “In the Pancake” (Splat). It works in the current version of Call of Duty: Warzone and when identifying an impostor it may accidentally (“for fun”) take away his parachute as he descends onto the map.
If the system detects an impostor after getting out, “Into the Flat” adjusts its speed and turns an ordinary jump into a fall from a height of three kilometers – death is guaranteed.
“Peaceful” will work alongside previously introduced features (“Damage Shield,” “Camouflage,” “Disarm,” “Hallucinations”) in Modern Warfare 3 and Call of Duty: Warzone multiplayer.
Ricochet developers have also adopted machine learning. AI helps predict behavior, identify and remove cheaters, but does not impose bans on its own.
Machine learning also helps speed up the analysis of video materials: a person can watch 700 replays per day, and a PC running a model can see up to a thousand (the number grows exponentially when several PCs are tasked with the task are connected).
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has been released on PC (Steam, Battle.net), PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S. In anticipation of the release, the Ricochet team banned more than 80,000 accounts in Warzone and Modern Warfare 2.
