- In addition to the recent RICOCHET Anti-Cheat™ PC kernel-level driver rollout in Warzone, over 30 improvements and bug fixes are coming at Season Two’s launch that will make Warzone more accessible and enjoyable for our community.
- All Vanguard and Warzone players can enjoy a Max 2XP Weekend, plus a free bundle and additional giveaways, as a thanks from all of us at Call of Duty.
In December 2021, we launched the global rollout of the RICOCHET Anti-Cheat™ kernel level driver on PC. This is one element of a multi-faceted anti-cheat security initiative, which also includes game monitoring, server-security updates, account authentication updates, and more.
Since its launch we have seen a significant drop in in-game cheat reporting, according to internal data. #TeamRICOCHET was able to catch and disable accounts quickly, bringing cheating within Warzone to an all-time low during the holiday break. We will share more information in a RICOCHET Anti-Cheat™ Progress Report in the Call of Duty blog dropping this weekend, which will include an overview of data collection and in-game mitigations, changes to our Security and Enforcement Policy, and a reaffirmation of our commitment to prevent and combat cheating wherever possible.
Recently, we delayed the release of Season Two of Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone. This delay gave us time to include fixes and quality of life updates as outlined in our second Status Report on February 11, along with official patch notes from Raven Software and Sledgehammer Games.
The entire Call of Duty team appreciates your patience over this past month and beyond – to show our thanks, we are excited to kick off the season with a weekend full of Double XP and free gifts for the community:
Max Double XP Weekend
From February 19 at 1 am 2am GMT+8 to February 23 at 2 am GMT+8, Vanguard and Warzone will kick-off the weekend with the Max Double XP event.
Throughout the Max Double XP event, all players can enjoy double earn rates for Regular XP, Weapon XP, Operator XP, Battle Pass XP, and Clan XP (note: Clan XP is exclusive to Vanguard).
A Free Bundle and 10 Free Tier Skips
During this Max Double XP event, all Vanguard and Warzone players can pick up a brand-new Forbidden Sacrifice Bundle before it goes into the Store.
This nine-item bundle includes a Legendary Operator Skin, two Legendary Weapon Blueprints – one reliable SMG kitted for tactical close-range engagements and a fast-firing Assault Rifle equipped with attachments that help keep you off the radar – and a Battle Pass Tier Skip… completely free.
In addition to this free bundle, players will also get 10 free Battle Pass Tier Skips – 11 total across the bundle; over $20 USD (650 THB) in total value.
