As many players will know, Call of Duty: Warzone will be getting a brand new anti-cheat to help combat hackers. Here are some of the most popular Warzone content creator’s reactions to RICOCHET.

As many players will know by now, Call of Duty: Warzone will be getting a brand new anti-cheat called RICOCHET, which will arrive around the same time as the Vanguard integration and new map.

This new security protocol by the developers at Call of Duty has sparked debate across the community, as well as popular Warzone streamers and YouTubers like JGOD and CourRageJD giving their reactions.

Popular Warzone YouTuber JGOD, who often provides in-depth stats for weapons and attachments, recently put out a tweet responding to the new RICOCHET anti-cheat.

The Tweet expressed excitement for the anti-cheat and Vanguard integration, saying, “I really cant wait until the Anti-Cheat Drop with the integration.”

JGOD is famous for his in-depth stats and guides. Thanks to the new RICOCHET anti-cheat, he also made a joke about dropping tip videos for those who realize people are just better than them and not cheating.

Another reaction came from CouRageJD, who was so fed up with cheaters and hackers in Warzone that he started to play Apex Legends.

CouRage tweeted out his reaction, which many who support him for playing Warzone will be very happy with, as it suggests he will be back and playing Warzone “much more” once it drops.

Nadeshot, another popular content creator and professional gamer for 100 Thieves, also reacted to RICOCHET.

Rather than reacting to its potential for stopping hackers in Warzone, Nadeshot wants to give props to the branding team who came up with the anti-cheat’s name.

In the Tweet, Nadeshot says: “Ricochet gotta be the coldest name ever created for an Anti-Cheat software. Props to whoever was on the brand team for this one.”

Nadeshot wasn’t the only one to also respond in a comedic manner, as professional Call of Duty player OpTic HECZ also similarly reacted to the tweet.

Although the Tweet does seem to be slightly misinformed, as the anti-cheat will not be arriving until Vanguard’s integration into Warzone, it’s still a pretty funny reaction, especially as it has been confirmed that RICOCHET will feature human surveillance.

Lastly, JackFrags also put out a very detailed video concerning the new RICOCHET anti-cheat, as he was invited to a meeting by Call of Duty to discuss it.

In the video, JackFrags goes in-depth on how RICOCHET will work, including the different areas the team working on Warzone’s security and anti-cheat are focussing on.

In the end, JackFrags gives his own opinion and reaction to the anti-cheat, which is in general quite positive:

“anti-cheat isn’t magic, there’s always going to be cheaters…but something about this seems different to me… it’s a new initiative, and it seems like there’s been some serious planning, consideration, effort, and money put behind it.”

It does seem as if the developers are working extremely hard to combat the hackers in Warzone, but as JackFrags said, the new anti-cheat will not simply rid the game of hackers, but it may help significantly reduce them.

So there you have it, there are some of the most popular Warzone content creator’s reactions to the upcoming RICOCHET anti-cheat.

Call of Duty: Vanguard

Warzone players call for devs to not remove Rebirth Island with Vanguard integration

With Call of Duty: Vanguard on the way, players are worried about what will happen to the popular Rebirth Island mode in Warzone.

Warzone players have been begging the developers at Raven Software and Sledgehammer Games to keep the Rebirth Island mode after Vanguard’s integration.

With Warzone now in Season 6, players have had a lot of time with the Rebirth Island mode, as it was released back in the first season of Black Ops Cold War‘s integration with the battle royale.

Players are fond of it, as some are even calling for the devs to keep it in the game even after Vanguard‘s release.

With Vanguard not too far out now, releasing November 5, players are anticipating the game’s integration into Warzone, which could happen just a couple of weeks after launch.

Of course, players are extremely excited about the new Pacific map, but at the same tie, some are worried that the Rebirth Island Alcatraz map and mode will be lost.

Reddit user BaconHamAndCheese12 put up a post recently expressing their worries about Rebirth Island continuing even after Vanguard’s release.

The player is passionate about the mode remaining in the game, as the caption reads: “When we get the new Pacific map and Vanguard is integrated, are we going to lose Rebirth Island?”

The post goes on to question whether the map will remain, or even if the Resurgence mode will get a new “smaller map” introduced along with Vanguard.

The user then states “I really don’t hope we lose Rebirth Island and Resurgence,” showing their love for both the map and mode. As the post asks whether or not there has been any information on this topic, sadly there has not, and it is unclear what will happen to the mode after Vanguard is integrated.

Many users in the comments also feel the same way, with one even saying: “I was genuinely concerned about this too and it’s a topic nobody seems to be talking about.”

We know many Warzone players absolutely love Rebirth Island and Resurgence, so we too hope that the mode and map returns, and if not the same, hopefully, a new variation of it.

Warzone could potentially lose a lot of its player base who love the mode, as some players exclusively play Rebirth Island due to its fun, intense gameplay.

We’ll have to see what happens when the devs comment on the topic, but for now, check out the current Warzone Season 6 meta.

World Series of Warzone Standings Leaderboard

The fourth World Series of Warzone tournament will see Duos from North America compete for the top spot in the final standings leaderboard, and we have everything you need to know about the competition covered for you.

Competitive Warzone has become one of the most popular esports scenes globally since the release of the Call of Duty battle royale in 2020.

While various tournament organizers and players have helped to propel the popularity of the game’s competitive scene, the World Series of Warzone is kicking it up a great deal, with a total of $1,200,000 being awarded throughout four different tournaments.

The first event saw NA Trios compete against each other, with Team Aydan securing the victory. The second World Series of Warzone competition had Trios from Europe take the spotlight, with Team Jukeyz taking home the championship on August 4, 2021.

The World Series of Warzone action picked back up on September 15 when the EU Duos event took place, and the Duo of MethodzSick and Dagati was able to take home the victory.

All of the action from this year’s World Series of Warzone will come to a close when the NA Duos tournament takes place on November 17, and we have the draft, standings, stream, and everything else you need to know covered below.

These five captain teams competed to secure the most collective points from placements and kills to earn a $100,000 prize pool and the Captain’s Cup championship.

The NA Duos World Series of Warzone draft will take place on November 19 at 12 PM PT / 2 PM CST / 3 PM EST. The tournament will then take place at the same time on November 17, 2021.

EU Duos Format

The NA Duos event will see one major change compared to the first two tournaments and was implemented in the EU Duos competition. Game six will not affect the final World Series of Warzone standings for the individual teams or the Captain’s Cup.

Instead, game six will be its own competition, as all of the 150 competing players will drop into a single match as solo players, with the last player standing getting $100,000.

Prize pool

The Captains and their teams will compete for a share of the $300,000 Prize Pool. The teams’ prize pool will be $200k, with another $100k on the line for the Captain’s Cup.

Here’s the prize pool rundown:
