The RICOCHET updates and changes for Season 3 of Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 were recently announced in a Call of Duty blog post on April 4th. Below are the key points and changes that are included in this update :
Efforts have been made by the RICOCHET Anti-Cheat team to create and apply novel methods and technologies in order to counter cheating occurrences in both Modern Warfare II and Warzone 2.0 .
They maintain a zero-tolerance policy for cheating and may adjust the Skill Rating of players who have played with banned cheating accounts. Also if any account caught cheating, it may face a permanent ban across all Call of Duty titles . In addition, to ensure the game’s integrity, the Ranked Play Top 250 and other competitive Leaderboards will remove banned accounts.
A new Replay investigation tool has been deployed to help identify cheating behavior in all multiplayer modes, and match data from suspicious accounts is being captured for investigation.
The team has developed a detection system for third-party hardware devices that alter the gameplay experience. This includes the infamous Cronus controller software, which veteran members of the Call of Duty community are already aware of. Improper use of these devices may lead to account or feature suspensions, or banning across Call of Duty titles.
For exemple if a player is found to be using such devices, they will receive a warning in the game menu. However, if the player persists in using these devices, they may face more severe consequences such as multiple warnings, mitigations, account or feature suspensions, or even a permanent ban from the game.

Account boosting, game glitching or exploiting, and player griefing are also in violation of the Call of Duty Security and Enforcement Policy and will result in warnings and penalties.
Reporting any cheating behavior is helpful to the investigation process, and the RICOCHET Anti-Cheat team will continue to monitor and update their systems to combat cheating in all modes.
