Activision has started using new tactics to combat cheaters in Call of Duty Modern Warfare II and Warzone 2.0. This is reported by Engadget.

When Activision’s systems detect or suspect a potential cheater, a special “hallucination” is triggered that is a clone of the real player. The hallucination moves, looks and interacts with the world just like a real player would. This is done to fool the cheater and make him think that he is facing a real opponent.

Ricochet’s anti-cheat team says cheaters won’t be able to tell a hallucination from a real player at first glance. Hallucinations emit the same hidden information that cheaters get from legal players using illegal tools.

Hallucinations will be placed near suspects. If a questionable player interacts with the hallucination at all, they will expose themselves as a hacker.

We will remind you that last December the head of Xbox Phil Spencer announced that Microsoft has reached an agreement with Nintendo regarding the appearance of the Call of Duty franchise on its gaming platform: according to it, games in this series will be featured on Nintendo consoles for the next 10 years.
