You may ever see that Riot Games Developer has already commented on Valorant’s Vanguard Anti-Cheat system. As we know that Rios’s F2P game use 2 anti tamper systems to get rid of the cheating. However, this new Vanguard system apparently use a driver component which runs at the system startup. As expected, several beta players have already expressed their concerns regarding this rather intrusive driver.
Based on the research, on the Valorant Reddit, a programmer and anti-cheat lead, Riot Arkem has already addressed those concerns and has confirmed it, while it does not collect any information about the user’s system, the Riot Vanguard is able to be uninstalled at any time. We are able to conclude that Valorant’s Vanguard anti cheat is able to be disabled by uninstalling it.
Here is how Riot Games plans to counteract the cheaters and make sure fair gameplay in Valorant:
One thing that has always plagued to play the game like Valorant are the cheaters. Apparently, there are many fake accounts which doing cheat. For this case, Riot thinks that for their FPS to succeed, they will need to take drastic measures to prevent a cheating. We really interested in the ways Riot will prevent cheating and hacking in Valorant, as described by Aidan O’Brien on Gamepur.
You have to know that Valorant is combating wallhacking directly with their integrated anti-cheat service that will be fully rolled out at launch. While the details of the system are confidential obviously. Apparently, Riot Games have already implemented a fog of war system that essentially results in enemies being non-existent up until they are visually present on your monitor, making classic wall hacks obsolete.
SAY GOODBYE TO THE SPEEDHACKS
We get information that the game settings and authorizations occur on the server side. It means that the players cannot change settings locally. So, this makes it impossible to use speed and teleportation hacks.
There are two types of anti-tamper systems are going to be used. One that is already in use for League of Legends, as well as a new system named Vanguard that will be a more evolving way of cheat detection, including banning cheaters instantly instead of waiting for reports. The players who are in a game where a cheater is detected is going to have the match ended with no penalties, so their game is not one sided and their time is not wasted.
The anti-cheat precautions means the server architecture is really important. In this case, Riot Games offers a strong netcode with a less than thirty five millisecond latency for the players in major cities around the world. Even, if your enemy is lagging out, their movement are going to appear smooth to you because Valorant will upscale their movement to match their global server tick rate of 128. In order to win at Valorant, you will need to have actual skill and practice. We hope you are as excited for a cheat-free Valorant.
