Dr Disrespect accuses Warzone devs of false Ricochet anti-cheat advertising
Streaming star Dr Disrespect has accused the developers of Call of Duty: Warzone of false Ricochet anti-cheat advertising after being victimized by a rather suspicious player.
Despite all of Warzone’s successes over the past two years, the battle royale’s struggles with cheaters and hackers have been well documented. Raven Software has, over time, banned many cheats but only introduced anti-cheat with the CoD: Vanguard integration.
