Dr Disrespect Calls Out Activision And Claims 'False Advertising' Of Anti-Cheat

Warzone just can't catch a break. Just when it seems Activision has got to the bottom of getting rid of cheating players, Herschel "Dr Disrespect" Beahm IV claims the new anti-cheat system isn't working.

The Doc may have been a Call Of Duty: Warzone devotee in previous times, but since the new Pacific Caldera map, he's been heavily critical of the game. He even went as far to say that he was ready to 'uninstallWarzone, much to the shock of his fans. However, he certainly wasn't the only one, as his fellow sharp-shooting Warzone partner Timothy "TimTheTatman" Betar also claimed that the Caldera map was having a devastating effect on the entire game. 

Although, it seems that Activision's attempt to improve Warzone and make it harder for hackers to cheat the game hasn't gone down well with Dr Disrespect. The mullet-sporting streamer has claimed that Activision has used 'false advertising' to promote Warzone's new anti-cheat system, even though it doesn't actually work.

What Is Activision's New Warzone Anti-Cheat System?

RICOCHET, Warzone's new anti-cheat system, was implemented by Activision to stamp out hackers who make it near impossible for other players to stand a chance of winning in the first-person shooter game. According to Activision's website, the anti-cheat system features "new server-side tools which monitor analytics to identify cheating". The way the system works is that "the PC kernel-level driver monitors and reports applications that attempt to interact with Call of Duty: Warzone, allowing the RICOCHET Anti-Cheat team to determine if a machine is utilizing unauthorized processes to manipulate the game." However, it did warn "there is no single solution or policy to cheating."

Activision has reported that the anti-cheat system has been very effective, so far. For example in December 2021, Activision posted on its Twitter account that nearly 50,000 cheater accounts were banned across Warzone and Vanguard thanks to the recently-created RICOCHET. However, it seems not everyone was convinced by the news.

What Did Disrespect Claim About Activision's New Anti-Cheat?

On January 7, during one of his classic live-streamed playthroughs of Warzone, Dr Disrespect was suddenly taken down by another player with very little effort. Given how he is considered to be one of the best Warzone players around, this understandably left him and his fans a little confused. As he reviewed his kill cam footage, the Doc noticed something suspicious about the player who managed to pre-fire at the YouTuber before he was visible behind cover, but also were able to aim at him on point.

After the Doc's take down, approximately an hour and 32 minutes into his stream, Dr Disrespect, in disbelief, stated: "The guy’s hacking, right? (A) hundred percent? So they did lie to us about RICOCHET. That’s false advertising, huh?"

As of writing, there's been no word from Activision about hackers bypassing the system. However, some fans in the Doc's chat had claimed that they had also come across an influx of cheaters in-game after a period of quiet. With such a disappointing amount of luck with Warzone recently, it's no wonder that Dr Disrespect has teamed up with Call Of Duty and Halo developers to set up his own AAA game studio
