Have you ever looked at your in-game name in Valorant or any game for that matter, and thought, “that ain’t it chief”. Sometimes, it just looks outdated and you cannot help but cringe to look back at when you decided to name your account.
On the other hand, you may have just simply thought of something even more epic and you want to begin using this alias online, but you need a way to change your display name. Traditionally, when it comes to this problem, when you have chosen your name you are usually stuck with it and are unable to change it.
However, luckily for Valorant players, your display name is linked to your Riot Games account and so it is actually very easy to change it.
Check out this short video that walks you through the process:
Ironically, In League of Legends, Legends of Runeterra, and Teamfight Tactics, you're forced to spend in-game currency (Riot Points) if you want to change your name. But in VALORANT, the process is straightforward and absolutely free.
To change your name, close the Valorant client (if it's open), log in to your Riot account here, navigate to the Riot ID tab (the second to the left), and click on the little pen next to your name.
From there, you can enter a new name and hashtag. With this method, you'll be able to change your display name once a month. The hashtag can be a set of numbers, or letters, similar to a clan tag in League of Legends.
Once your name has been confirmed, load up Valorant and you should be good to go.
