Warzone 2’s arrival marks a new era for the largely favored battle royale mode in Call of Duty. Not only does it bring multiple new features to the fray but it also retains previously popular ones such as FOV sliders.
Much like any other online game, however, this upcoming title is still susceptible to the cheaters that plague multiplayer servers. In order to avoid hacking incidents from occurring in-game, developers often employ a system to keep them at bay. But the question is does Warzone 2 have anti-cheat present in the game? Read on to find out more.
Will Warzone 2 Have Anti Cheat?
Warzone 2 will have the Ricochet Anti-Cheat system immediately in place once the game has fully launched. According to a recent CoD blog post, the Anti-Cheat system will be operating on a new, unified security platform. This means that the developers will be able to provide further protection through improved detection, new mitigation techniques, and the ability to update their security protocols frequently.
The announcement also disclosed that all existing mitigation systems will be enabled at launch, including Cloaking, Disarm, Damage Shield, and more. It also noted that cheaters should expect a whole new host of in-game enforcement, although it wasn’t exactly specified in the statement.
There is also a SMS Security Policy in place which will be required to play MW2 on PC. Based on the post, this SMS policy will be similar to the system implemented for Warzone in 2020. However, it does go on to clarify that existing Warzone players that have already verified their accounts won’t need to do so for the upcoming entry.
