Hershal Beahm aka ‘Dr Disrespect’ has shared his opinion about Warzone’s anti-cheat technology, RICOCHET, calling it the “biggest PR scandal” in gaming.

Popular streamer Dr Disrespect is not shy of criticizing the Call of Duty franchise, especially when it comes to Warzone.

Not only did the 2x champion recently share his worries about the Modern Warfare 2’s engine, even claiming that it doesn’t match the engine being used for his battle royale, but he has also shared his thoughts on RICOCHET.

Warzone’s anti-cheat was implemented to eradicate the severe cheating issue in Warzone, but Dr Disrespect feels as if it is the “biggest PR scandal” in the gaming industry.

The RICOCHET anti-cheat system was introduced for Warzone to combat the abundance of cheaters and hackers in the battle royale.

Some feel as if it has worked in reducing the number of cheaters and effectively disarming many of them while cheating in-game by making their bullets do no damage.

Dr Disrespect tweeted out his views on Warzone’s RICOCHET anti-cheat system on June 29, questioning if RICOCHET is the “biggest PR scandal in video game history,” which is similar to his recent opinion that marketing is saving Call of Duty.

Dr Disrespect spoke about his opinion more on his June 29 stream while playing Escape from Tarkov. The Doc said that RICOCHET was a “phony a** PR stunt.”

The streamer goes on to say that he “can’t believe people are actually responding with RICOCHET saying it’s worked…they probably hired like five guys…let’s wake the f*** up man.”

Clearly, the 2x doesn’t believe Warzone’s RICOCHET anti-cheat is deserving of praise. It seems the streamer believes the anti-cheat was just a PR stunt to make the players believe that something drastic was being done to deter and deal with the cheaters and hackers in Warzone.

Although Dr Disrespect doesn’t provide much context behind his opinion, it did spark a debate in the comments of his Twitter post.

One user disagrees, stating “its honestly worked well,” while others agree with the Doc, “He’s correct. For a major AAA company to be plagued with a variety of issues it’s pathetic. It’s embarrassing.”

Clearly, there is a divide in the community between those who feel RICOCHET has been effective, and those who feel it hasn’t. Hopefully, Warzone 2 can improve on the dealings with cheaters and hackers for an overall better quality experience, but the Doc has doubts about that as well.
