What is a Vanguard?
Vanguard was again produced by the Riot Games as an anti-cheat software for Valorant. One has to download Vanguard as well in order to further play the game. As much as the anti- cheat software is known for its sophistication, strictness and uncompromising the software also tends to bare a number of controversies to it as well. Gamers started facing issues where in Vanguard would start kicking off the players from the server after detecting a minor irregularity in their (gamer’s) system.
The software was designed on the basis of keeping the hackers off guard and not letting anyone cheat during the game. Perhaps, Vanguard would randomly start kicking out the players without any sign of these issues. However, this issue was further rectified before they could officially launch Valorant.
The Vanguard includes of two different part: – 1) Kernel mode and 2) Client Mode.
The Kernel mode is designed in a manner where in as soon as we start to run our PC the software also begins to function simultaneously. The Client mode on the other hand, is a self-explanatory, the software keeps checking up during the game to whether we are cheating or not, it basically acts like an invigilator checking up on whether the student is cheating during the exam or not.
Vanguard tends to further block drivers, there isn’t a specific list but according to research it definitely stops drives like temperature monitors, graphic overlooking tools, etc.
While we have got an idea about the role of Vanguard, we should also note that no software especially an ‘anti- cheating’ software can be completely successful, it basically means there is always loopholes in such programmes which can be found as used by many. But, again while hearing peoples review about the Vanguard software, it has done exceptionally well in comparison to other softwares.
