Call of Duty has always had cheaters ruining the fun for everyone in most of their multiplayer titles, and Warzone is no different. However, after a recent absence of cheating in Warzone, it appears that cheaters have returned to the game, so let's cover everything you need to know about it.

We will be looking at the recent increase of cheaters present in Call of Duty Warzone Season 4 specifically, and its likeliness due to the free hacks that have been made available recently for the game. Along with what other players have been saying when voicing their concern for what it means to have cheaters back in Call of Duty.

The RICOCHET anti-cheat system has been active in the previous iterations of Call of Duty since Warzone Pacific Season 1. Which lead to loads of cheaters getting called out, banned, and prevented from ruining the competition for other gamers and professional players.

Now, Warzone has always had an issue with cheating in the past, but thanks to the technical wizardry of RICOCHET, this problem was heavily reduced and all but solved. But with this recent news, it seems they have finally broken through the system, with many players reporting cheaters in the past few weeks.

Players in the Warzone subreddit are also claiming that, to make matters worse, cheat providers are offering their hacks free of charge as of late, quoting: "Engineowning Hack company is giving out a free wallhack this weekend for the fourth!! that’s why." And other players are making some keen observations of cheating behavior on a steady up ramp recently.

This is all further being put into the spotlight as players are openly pointing out that they suspect cheaters have found a way through the RICOCHET's system. As one streamer put it "a company that makes the cheats put out an update to be able to cheat again", meaning it's unsure as to when RICOCHET will respond to this new cheating software.

For now, it seems that the RICOCHET system and cheaters will continue to trade blows, and players can only hope that the adaptive system that RICOCHET uses to pinpoint cheaters and hacks can be effective in the meantime. Though we're sure that they plan on picking apart this new hacking software and retrofitting their software to remove the cheaters once again, as they did in Warzone Pacific Season 1.
