After Season 1 of Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific launched, the infamous cheating problem in the battle royale had been at an all-time low. Players were reporting that the RICOCHET Anti-Cheat software, which was implemented at the start of Season 1, was working well and cheaters were even being affected mid-match, with their bullets not doing any damage to players.

However, this little period of non-cheating bliss has ended. In the past couple of weeks, Warzone Pacific players have reported an influx of cheaters in their matches. Whether it’s on Rebirth Island or Caldera, and despite the RICOCHET Anti-Cheat being in place, players are saying the cheating is back to pre-Season 1 levels.

Cheaters are back in Warzone Pacific

Players on social media have been trying to explain why there are suddenly so many more cheaters than there had been in the past couple of months. One player says that they’ve seen cheaters rise back up to the levels they were at prior to RICOCHET. Their explanation for this is that the software never worked properly, but the cheating problem was minimized because there weren’t as many people playing Caldera.

“I genuinely believe that the anti-cheat was never working that well to begin with,” one redditor stated, “and due to the initial bounce in player base from the new map it just diluted the hackers.”

Other commenters agreed with this post, saying they’re also experiencing problems with cheaters. Another post backed up the player as well, saying that every time they play Rebirth Island they run into at least one hacker. “Rebirth is just the easy example, but Caldera definitely has quite a few [cheaters] judging from streamers who run into them every single match,” the redditor stated.

Once again, commenters agreed with the estimation that the problem of cheaters has become worse in the past few weeks. The reason for this is currently unclear. Perhaps Season 2 of Warzone Pacific, which begins on Feb. 14, will introduce some changes to alleviate the issue.
