VALORANT Name Change And How To Do It For Free

VALORANT Name Change And How To Do It For Free
Riot Games

Need a VALORANT name change because your teammates once again failed to pronounce your name correctly in solo queue? Or did you no longer enjoy the nickname a rapper name generator gave you in fifth grade? Made a typo that stuck but now it's starting to sting? Are suffixes like "lol" or "qt" just not cutting it anymore? However it may be, a VALORANT name change is easy enough to do and, believe it or not, is free! Here’s how to change name in VALORANT.

How To VALORANT name change

The first useful piece of information you need for your VALORANT name change is to understand that your display name is shared between some, but not all games from Riot Games. Whether it's Teamfight Tactics, Wild Rift, or VALORANT, changing your name on one will inevitably change it for all other games as well. Currently, there is no workaround here, so if you want to have separate IDs, you will need to create a new account for the respective game you want to play under a new name. 

If you’re fine changing your display name in every title, head over to the Riot Games account login page and sign in with your username and password. If you haven’t done that in a while, it might prompt you to get a security code sent to your email. Slot that in and head to your account settings.

How to Valorant name change

On the very first page, you’re invited to change your Riot ID and your tagline. The Riot ID is your display name and changing this will allow you to appear with a different name in-game. The tagline are the numbers or letters after the # in when you give your ID out so other players can add you (ie.: GGRecon#HowTo).

You will know that your name change has gone through with all its possible limitations (don’t be naughty!) when the timer for it resets to a month from today’s date like so.

How to Valorant name change

How often can you VALORANT name change?

Likely to avoid abuse, there is a limit as to how often you can VALORANT name change. Currently, that wait period is set to 30 days which is gracious but enough to not be too messy from changing it too frequently. 

Other limitations are how many and which signs you are allowed to use. Riot IDs can be up to 16 letters long and may contain numbers, so you've got some room for creativity with your VALORANT name change. The tagline is a little more limited and only gives you the option between letters and numbers, capping you at a maximum of five.

That's pretty much all there is to it. Enjoy your new display name as this is all you need to know to about the VALORANT name change. Make sure you check out some of our other VALORANT guides below.
