RICOCHET anti-cheat trusted matchmaking
One of the RICOCHET anti-cheat features revealed by the developers is called trusted matchmaking, which will potentially reduce the number of hackers in legitimate players’ games drastically.
Trusted matchmaking is RICOCHET collecting data from players and placing them in “trusted” and “untrusted” player pools. If this works, this will place hackers in lobbies with other hackers and legitimate players with those alike.
Further, Activision has also confirmed that even if players are in the “trusted” pool, they will still be monitored and moved to “untrusted” if there’s any suspicious activity, as no player will be immune to the anti-cheats initiatives.
There is plenty of hope in the Call of Duty community that features like trusted matchmaking will allow the RICOCHET anti-cheat system to make hacking extremely difficult for cheaters in Warzone and Vanguard, and while it will never be 100% effective should make the appearance of hackers in lobbies much rarer than currently.
That’s all for the trusted matchmaking in Warzone’s upcoming RICOCHET anti-cheat in what is one of the system’s exciting features to combat hackers.
