Call of Duty continues to make improvements to the Ricochet anti-cheat, and Activision reveals the recently announced “Splat” feature is now live in Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone. A new video shared by Call of Duty shows exactly what it looks like when cheaters are detected by Ricochet, and it’s pretty funny to watch how they get trolled.
This new anti-cheat update causes verified Warzone cheaters to have their parachutes clipped, leaving them to fall to their death with a splat. The feature also affects Modern Warfare 3’s multiplayer, and as shown in Call of Duty’s test video below, even a small and normally survivable jump causes a cheater’s death. This hilarious new feature will only be enabled for players who are already verified for cheating.
Additionally, the publisher says new machine learning developments will help with “efficiency and speed in prevention, detection, and removal of cheaters.” However, the machine learning systems do not issue bans on players, as that’s an action still performed by a human.
