Some Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific players are rather convinced on the anti-cheat RICOCHET has nerfed the damage for specific players.
Because of RICOCHET, Warzone hackers have begged developers to give them a second chance but some still manage to slip through the cracks. It seems that in addition to targeting cheat software providers directly, Activision has included a system to make cheats less harmful.
A screenshot from a cheat provider’s Discord shows that cheaters are convinced that the RICOCHET anti-cheat has reduced the impact of cheater damage.
Oftentimes suspected cheating Warzone accounts get shadowbanned before actually being banned from the game. part.
Now it looks like the RICOCHET anti-cheat system looks directly at cheaters’ stats and imposes a severe ban. According to a cheat provider, RICOCHET would directly nerf player damage with high accuracy, making kills much harder to get.
Instead of being banned, these players could therefore still wander on Caldera, but they would only need more bullets to defeat another player. This would allow honest players to have a better chance of eliminating them.
Pro Warzone players have already stated that players with low K/D ratio have better accuracy, so this might be related. We have for the moment no confirmation on the subject and it is unlikely that the RICOCHET system will reveal its cards in order to keep a surprise effect against hackers.
