Call of Duty’s anti-cheat tech renders cheating fools unable to see other players


A new anti-cheating technique in Call of Duty: Vanguard makes it so that other players are invisible to the scammers when playing online.

Have you ever joined a lobby in a game and thought, “This server is dead?” Now that could be because you’re a scammer, given a new anti-cheat system added to Vanguard called Ricochet, a unique technique called Cloaking. This new technique was detailed on the Call of Duty blog, which explained how it was designed to combat cheating (thanks, game developers).

“With cloaking, players identified as cheating may not be able to see opposing players in the game world,” the blog post reads. “Characters, bullets, and even sounds from legitimate players are imperceptible to scammers. However, legitimate players can see that cheaters are affected by the stealth (generally it’s the players spinning in circles yelling “Who’s shooting me?!”) and can dish out in-game punishments […] gives legitimate players an edge over cheaters.”

Essentially, this new technique is a big and pretty clever middle finger for anyone trying to cheat in the game. To the trickster, each map is just an empty wasteland of solitude. And for every other player, the cheater essentially becomes a free kill.

The blog post also mentions in-game mitigation techniques aimed at “reducing the impact of cheaters while collecting data essential for identifying cheating behavior.” Cloaking is one of the earlier techniques implemented in the game, although the team is still working on other methods to combat cheating.

Additionally, if a player is discovered to be cheating, they will be removed from the leaderboard, a fairly common and fair punishment for trying to pretend they’re good at an interactive toy.

avant-garde and War Zones Season 3 was also recently detailed and features new maps, new weapons and for some reason Godzilla and King Kong. Call of Duty’s anti-cheat tech renders cheating fools unable to see other players
