Call of Duty Banwave

The Call of Duty: Warzone Season 2 Patch Notes have details on the new patch and season that's live in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III and Warzone. In addition to outlining everything that's new and different, this also digs into the issue of cheating. This excerpt discusses a recent spike in cheating that's resulted in the ban of over 6000 accounts:
The RICOCHET Anti-Cheat team has been tracking a spike in cheating reports within the community. We are currently in test for additional security updates; however, the following updates have just been deployed:

  • Disabled game code for limited-time perks (Ex. super speed)

As part of ongoing security updates, a single telemetry system was taken offline for upgrades over the weekend. This action resulted in cheat developers claiming RICOCHET Anti-Cheat was offline. It was not. As a result of monitoring activity over the weekend and the purposeful reactivation of this upgraded system, #TeamRICOCHET was able to identify and ban over 6000 accounts for cheating and hacking from February 16 - February 20.
