Call of Duty RICOCHET Anti Cheat Is Now Capable of Detecting Cronus Software

The RICOCHET Anti-Cheat team reveals new detections and tools in the fight against cheaters.

Call of Duty’s RICOCHET anti-cheat has received a major overhaul that enables it to detect external hardware, such as Cronus software. If you weren't aware, Cronus Zen is a small device that can connect to controllers or PCs. This device enables players to modify their gaming equipment in order to gain an unfair advantage on the battlefield.

Following the recent Anti-Cheat update, the system will now issue a warning to users on PC or console who are detected to be using third-party hardware devices.

If users continue to use these devices inappropriately, they may face severe consequences such as an additional warning, "mitigations," suspension of their account, or a complete ban.

The Activision team mentioned the following in their blog post:

Users across PC or console who are detected to be using third-party hardware devices to impact the Modern Warfare II or Warzone 2.0 gameplay experience will first see a warning about the improper use of these devices. Continued improper use of these devices may lead to additional warnings, the deployment of mitigations, account or feature suspensions, or the banning of the offending account across Call of Duty titles.

The developer team at Activision has also incorporated a new feature called the Replay investigation, which allows them to load up and watch any completed match as part of their investigation process.

Finally, Call of Duty Modern Warfare II and Warzone 2.0 will also issue warnings to players who engage in prohibited activities like exploiting glitches, griefing, and account-boosting.
