Call of Duty: Warzone fans are gearing up for the launch of Warzone Pacific, the biggest update the game has ever seen.

Incorporating the recently released Call of Duty: Vanguard into the game's arsenal, the battle royale gets its second new map since the game's launch, named Caldera, it takes players from the dull surroundings of Verdansk and transports them to a tropical Pacific island. .

Another major addition to Vanguard and Warzone is the highly requested anti-cheat system. Originally announced in August of this year, amid growing furor over the game's cheating problem, kernel-level anti-cheat (similar to the one used to great success and controversy in Valorant from Riot Games) was supposed to give Warzone something it never had… a real anti-cheat system.

However, it seems not all has been smooth sailing for the anti-cheat known as Ricochet. When it was revealed in August, it appeared that it would be coming with the launch of Call of Duty: Vanguard, and it did in some ways, but only on the "server" side and no, because it should be really efficient, kernel-based driver that runs on gamers' machines. These server-side additions are also active in Warzone.

The core player was supposed to go live with Warzone and then later with Vanguard, per an October announcement, but delays to the Warzone Pacific release pushed it further.

Now it looks like players will have to wait even longer after an official announcement revealed that Richochet will not be released globally with the release of Warzone Pacific, but will gradually roll out to all regions, with Asia-Pacific being the first region to get it.

This will be a blow to many who view the launch of Warzone Pacific as a time to return to a game that many fell in love with as the cheating issue spiraled out of control.

It's not yet clear when Ricochet will be coming to all Warzone players, but if this is truly a technical rollout and not another delay in disguise, it could well be by the end of the week. , we were all playing fairer games. Here is the hope.
