How to recover stolen Activision account: Warzone devs offer security tips

Treyarch have responded to player complaints about having their Activision accounts stolen and being unable to recover them, offering up a few solutions. 

Dexerto says “Losing an account to a troll or a hacker is a tale as old as time in gaming. There have been plenty of scams for different games, and they always end up in tears. In terms of Call of Duty, things have gotten better with the implementation of two-factor authentication, but it’s still pretty common to see a player lose their account for one reason or another.  Many victims have complained that once they lose an account, it can be difficult to get it back, and have criticized Activision, Treyarch, and Raven for not really helping them out. However, there are steps you can take. “

Dexerto says “xQc has always been a lone wolf in many ways. Generally, he likes to stream on his own rather than collaborating with other streamers. And when he does collaborate with them, it leads to drama more often than not. For example, he clashed with streamers like Pokelawls and Myth on the OfflineTV Rust server before quitting. Then, when he moved onto GTA RP, he got banned multiple times following clashes with other streamers like MOONMOON before moving on. Heck, he even rage-quit from a Monopoly game. But interestingly enough, butting heads with other streamers isn’t the reason why he’s now “done” with collaborations. It turns out that something else bothers him much
