Though the kernel-level drive is bringing much of the heat to RICOCHET Anti-Cheat, the “Call of Duty” team still had some additional security updates to share. As thorough as the coming protections seem, the company also emphasized the continued need for players to keep their eyes peeled for any and all suspicious activity. Player reporting is actively encouraged, as well as two-factor authentication to protect hackers from breaking into private player accounts.
Beyond that, the “Call of Duty” staff updated gamers on “the evolving use of machine learning (ML).” Basically, ML uses algorithms to sort through data and “identify suspicious behavior trends.” Given the increased amount of data that will be available to the team thanks to the kernel-level drive, it seems each piece of the RICOCHET Anti-Cheat initiative will bolster the others.
Hopefully, this host of new security enhancements will finally take a bite out of the “Call of Duty” cheating problem.
