Call of Duty Dev Team Announces New Anti-Cheat Measures
Even with the release of Modern Warfare 3, the Call of Duty developer team has not lost sight of the ongoing battle against cheaters in their games. In a recent blog post, the dev team introduced an amusing new mitigation strategy called “Splat” for Warzone, along with updates on their RICOCHET: Anti-Cheat measures.
The new mitigation strategy, “Splat,” was described as a humorous way to quickly remove verified cheaters from matches. If a cheater is discovered, “Splat” can disable their parachute, sending them falling to the ground. Additionally, it can adjust player velocity, causing a 10,000-foot drop for cheaters attempting to evade the system.
The blog post emphasizes that these measures are meant to prevent cheaters from ever reaching a match, rather than dealing with them once they are already in. It also assures that these measures won’t be activated by mistake or as a result of player reports.
While these new measures were not confirmed to be included in Modern Warfare 3, the game already features other mitigation measures like ‘Cloaking’ and ‘Damage Shield’ to counter cheaters in multiplayer matches.
