Many players are unable to change their name on Valorant, and this is expected considering that many shifted from other games like the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. For CS: GO players, all they need to do to change their name on Steam’s profile edit page. It turns out that Valorant does not have a feature to change nicknames within the game or in the Riot launcher. But there is a way to change your name in the game, and that is exactly what we are going to teach here!
How to change your name in Valorant
Below you can see step by step how to change your name on Valorant.
- Access your Riot account. To do this, just click on this link here.
- Open the flap Riot ID.
- Click on the pen icon which is next to your name.
- Now, you can change your Valorant name as well as your hashtag!
Remember that you can change the name and hashtag only once every 30 days, then choose your new nick with care! Also, be aware that there can be identical names in Valorant, which is why hashtags exist. If your name is unique and no one else has already registered, then you don’t need hashtag, as it only serves to differentiate one player from another.
