Activision’s ‘Call of Duty’ implements advanced technology to identify and ban XIM-style cheat hardware

Gaming giant Activision has stepped up its fight against cheaters by introducing a new detection system aimed at third-party cheat devices such as XIM, Cronus Zen, and ReaSnow S1. The move is part of the Ricochet anti-cheat team’s efforts to combat unfair play in its Call of Duty games. The devices can provide players with an unfair advantage, such as eliminating recoil, and their continued use could lead to a range of measures from in-game mitigations to permanent bans across all Call of Duty titles.
