And the results are also very positive, when in just one day, there were more than 14,000 banned accounts, most of which belonged to third-party software providers with the purpose of cheating in Call of Duty. Duty.
Ricochet itself also works in a very unique style. Instead of immediately banning fraudulent accounts, this system will cause enough annoyance for them. From disabling damage that cheaters can inflict on other players to obstructing their vision, sometimes taking over their weapons.
