If you’re a Valorant player and looking to change your username but have no idea how to do so, we’re here to help you out with this guide where we’ll be walking you through the simple process of changing your username in Riot Games’ Valorant.
How to Change Your Name in Valorant
Valorant gives players the ability to change their username if they wish to. There are many reasons why players would want to change their username or ID.
Maybe, you’ve switched up your gaming persona and want to update your name, or maybe you put a silly username when you made the account and are looking to change it so people don’t see something like ‘Noobmaster69’ when you show them your gameplay. These all are quite valid reasons. That is why some video games companies offer players to change their usernames atleast once. Luckily, Riot Games is one of those companies.
Whatever that reason is for the change, the good news is that it’s actually pretty easy to change your username in Valorant. Unlike in Riot’s other games like League of Legends or Wild Rift, changing your name is completely free of cost in Valorant.
However, the tricky thing is that there’s no option to do this in the game itself, so new players might get a bit confused.
To help you out with changing your name in Valorant, this guide will be showing you how you can do so with ease.
Name Change Guide Steps
Your name in Valorant consists of a combination of the name itself and a hashtag of a 3-5 numbers/letters (tagline). This makes up your entire username.
To change your username in Valorant, follow these steps:
- Head to Riot Game’s website and log in to your Valorant account.
- After logging in, click on ‘Riot ID’ to the left, under Account Management.
- In this page, you’ll see your current username and tagline in Valorant.
- Simply click on your username and tagline and change them respectively to whatever you want.
- Once you’ve changed your username, click ‘Save Changes’.
Now, if you launch Valorant game, you’ll see your new username in action. However, if it doesn’t it may take a while so you need to be a bit patient in that regard.
One important thing to note is that you can only change your username once per month; so make sure you’re confident in your new username before changing it, so you don’t have to wait 30 days before you can change it to a better username.
