Cronus Zen users are getting detected with the RICOCHET 2.0 update. The new and updated anti-cheat surpasses its previous potential by removing Cronus Zen abusers from CoD.

Call of Duty Warzone 1 was an instant hit. Finally, the BR title fulfilled the dose of engagement players sought in the previous CoD BR Blackout. But unfortunately, while Warzone was full of potential, the game’s growing player base was stunted by an upcoming plague.

The hacker plague of Warzone 1 hindered its full potential taking away a significant portion of its player base and content creators. The problem got so severe that content creators like Vikkstar and NICKMERCS called quits on the BR.

Activision introduced their own RICOCHET anti-cheat to counter cheaters, which managed to axe off most cheaters from the game. RICOCHET’s success brought it back for MW2 and Warzone 2.0. Recently, Activision announced their new revamp to the anti-cheat system by countering Cronus Zen.

RICOCHET Anti-Cheat can Now Detect Cronus Zen Users

In their most recent community update, Call of Duty announced their new update to RICOCHET. From now on, RICOCHET can detect third-party enhancement tools such as Cronus Zen in-game.

Players who use Cronus Zen will now be issued a warning. If continued use of the device is seen, then the player will be banned from the game in compliance with the security policies of Activision. Besides banning, players might also be issued with an account or feature suspension from the game.

The new RICOCHET was seen in action by many Cronus Zen users in-game. One user posted a screenshot of the warning message in a Discord server which TheGhostofHope then posted on Twitter.

So, RICOCHET’s new update will reduce the number of players abusing the game, enhancing third-party software or devices. The devs have been proactive in fighting cheaters since the game’s launch.
