A few months back, Activision announced on Twitter that Call of Duty: Warzone will be receiving a new kernel level driver to its anti-cheat system, and it seems that the anti-cheat update will be rolling out to players starting December 9th.

The new anti-cheat driver will have access to the entirety of your system, and should function a lot like Riot’s Vanguard. According to Activision, the driver will allow the game to monitor any running applications on the system so as to detect whether a player is using any cheating software or not. Activision also states that the sophistication of modern cheat engines makes it near-impossible to detect cheaters with in-game anti-cheat and as such, kernel level anti-cheats are the only way to combat its ever-growing problem of cheaters moving forward.

This new anti-cheat technology is, of course, exclusive to PC players, and will first be rolling out to players in the Asia-Pacific region. As announced previously, accounts accused of cheating will be banned from the entirely of the CoD franchise.
