VALORANT display name

Each player in the game is distinguished by their display name, linked to their Riot ID. The Riot ID consists of the display name and a three to five character hashtag. This is how multiple players can use the same display name with hashtags that differentiate them. Only display name is visible in game, but you need full display name and hashtags to add friends. You might want to change the name because you’re bored with the old one, or maybe you’ve just thought of one that’s more interesting. This guide will show you how to change your name in VALORANT.

How to change your username

Make sure to remember your new username so that you are not blocked on your account.

How to change your name in Valorant

Your Valorant name is linked to your Riot Games account. Head over to the official Riot Games account page and change your name there. You can change your name once every thirty days. After changing, you will need to restart Valorant to update it.

Go to the Riot Games account page linked above and navigate to the Riot ID tab after signing in. Click on the little pencil icon to the right of your Riot ID and enter your new name. Your name should also include four digits after this for identification, but you can choose to randomize it. That’s all you need to do to change your name in Valorant.

You may want to change your name in the game for various reasons. This includes joining a team or possibly having an illegal name. There is no separate way to change your name in the game other than going through the Riot Games website and updating it.

Your name appears every time you type in the team or in all chats, when you’re in a group, and when you show up on the activation thread. There are a few websites available that track your Valorant stats by your player name.

How to reserve a username for Valorant

Riot Games is staying true to its name and adding a brand new game, Valorant, to its library. Unless stated otherwise, it is not expected to launch until summer 2020, provided beta testing is on track. Until then, it’s time to start reserving a unique Riot ID. Before you can do this, you need to create an account with Riot Games.

Start by heading to the official Riot Games League of Legends website. No, you don’t have to play League of Legends, but technically speaking, your Riot account covers the entire catalog of Riot Games titles. See “Login” at the top right corner of the page? Start there. If you need to change the language, which also changes the region and server you’re playing on, click on the little globe icon to the left of “Connection”. At the bottom of the login page, click on “Create an account”.

First, provide a valid email address, your birthday and lastly, a username and password. The username you choose is for login purposes only and is not your unique Riot ID. Do not share your username or password with anyone, not even your dog. Once you’ve created a Riot Games account, sign in.

Once logged in, click on “My Account” in the upper right corner and choose “Settings” from the drop-down menu. Once redirected to your account page, click on “Riot ID” in the left column. See the little edit icon? Click on it. You are now invited to create a unique riot ID and hashtag. The Riot ID is what every player will see, but the hashtag remains hidden unless you’re on someone’s friends list. When you have discovered a combination that works, it will be yours when the next Valorant finally launches.
