FaZe Clan’s Dillon ‘Attach’ Price has had to experience an ordeal that no Call of Duty player should ever have to go through.

The pro player found out on November 23 that his Black Ops 4 account had been breached by hackers and completely reset back to level one.

This came just a day after Attach reached the Master Prestige rank in the Multiplayer, which is the highest possibly Prestige that anyone can achieve.

“My PlayStation account just got hacked,” he tweeted. “I just hit Master Prestige yesterday.” His tweet also included images confirming that his account was reset, which can be seen below.

In terms of how the hackers managed to get into his account, Attach alleges that they contacted Activision support and claimed to be him, which apparently was good enough to fool the representative into handing them his account login details. 

As to who the hackers actually are, Attach put out a tweet directly naming the pair, which he deleted within minutes of posting.

As if that’s not enough, Attach also put out a tweet to Ryan ‘Fwiz’ Wyatt, Global Head of Gaming at YouTube, asking him to send back a Direct Message. 

While that does not conclusively reveal anything, it hints at the possibility that his YouTube account may also have been compromised. 

As of now, it’s unclear as to whether Attach can get his Black Ops 4 account to be reversed back to its Master Prestige rank prior to this hacking ordeal.

If not, it will be a tough blow to someone who spent weeks grinding the game to reach the max rank, and potentially even inspire other hackers to try and do the same.

Warzone players claim Nuketown Gulag gives unfair advantage to one side

A handful of Call of Duty Warzone players have hit out at the new Nuketown-themed Gulag, claiming it favors one side a bit too much. 

With the release of Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War, Warzone has now combined the weapons of both the new game as well as the previous Modern Warfare title.

Even though there’s plenty of new content, including weapons and the Rebirth Island map, but it hasn’t gone down well with every player. There are still complaints about weapons being too overpowered, attachments not working, as well as other general bugs that come from combining the two games. 

Additionally, there’s also a new Gulag – with the showers of the Verdansk prison being done away with, and being replaced by a smaller version of Nuketown. However, players have got complaints about that too.

Players believe that Gulag fights have never been this tricky to win.

With the Modern Warfare showers, players had the same angles on each side, but that’s now changed with Nuketown. It’s now asymmetrical, with more angles to look out for, and Warzone players believe it favors the side where you can shoot through what would be the Welcome to Nuketown sign. 

“40% of my gulag deaths are from my enemy camping behind the car ruins,” posted Redditor SamirDando, complaining about the head glitch the car gives players who spawn that side. “That’s not what the gulag was originally designed to do. This needs a change.”

Others agreed, adding: “Yeah can’t stand it. The damn car head glitch” and offering up possible changes. “Remove the car, change the plywood to concrete so it can’t be shot through and it’d be alright,” said another.

Yet, one player pointed out that it’s not just the head glitch that’s the problem, but how much room you have to work with. 

“In my opinion, the problem with car spawn isn’t just the head glitch, but also the fact that you can see two lanes from spawn,” noted Reddit user ReADropOfGoldenSun, “I think this could all be fixed if they moved the cardboard just a bit over so you can’t see the middle right off spawn.”

Other players, however, didn’t agree at all, claiming that are easy ways to get around the campers – either by simply hopping up on the balconies on the houses or using grenades.

It seems unlikely that the devs would make major changes to the gulag, unless their data shows that it’s completely broken and ruining the game. That might happen at a later date, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
