It doesn't matter which competitive online video game you play, it seems that we can't always avoid cheaters and the likes of Call of Duty: Warzone, Fortnite, and Apex Legends are no exception.
Sadly it seems no matter the best efforts of publishers and developers to ban cheaters, sophisticated and ever-evolving cheat software eventually gets ahead of the curve. Cheaters are so much of an issue in Call of Duty, that they even cheated during the pre-launch Modern Warfare III beta, a beta in which stats do not carry over to the full game making the whole process of cheating totally pointless.

Previously, developers have been getting creative with Activision’s in-house anti-cheat software Ricochet by making honest Call of Duty players invisible to known cheaters, essentially making cheaters easy prey for genuine players. That being said, some Call of Duty: Warzone players have reportedly been receiving unfair bans for basically being too good at the game.
As reported by Polygon and as the headline of this article states, the latest creative measure to tackle cheaters in Call of Duty: Warzone is by cutting their parachutes as they drop into the battle royale map resulting in an instant death before they’ve even had a chance to kill other players. The new anti-cheat measure has been brilliantly named ‘Splat’.
Splat-tech will cut the cord of players who have been found to have cheated in previous games, but what if a player is cheating during a game when they have safely landed on the ground? Well, Splat-tech has that covered because it will turn a simple jump into a 10,000ft leap resulting in cheaters suffering a humours death just when they think they’ve beaten the system.
For those that may be concerned that this Splat-tech might unjustly determine a player as a cheater, then fear not because the developers of Call of Duty: Warzone claim that the Ricochet software will not trigger the anti-cheat measures for players that haven't been labelled as verified cheats, even if they’ve been reported by other players.
Call of Duty: Warzone as well as the recently released Modern Warfare III is out now on PC, PlayStation and Xbox.
