Here’s how you can change one of the most important aspects of your online identity, the in-game name, in Valorant. It’s free, too.
Nicknames are very important for players, especially in online video games. They’re known to represent themselves with their associated in-game names. However, nicknames should sometimes be changed, and luckily the process is 100% free in Valorant. Here’s how to change your name in Valorant.
What is a Riot Account?
Before Valorant and Legends of Runeterra were released, players were using a League of Legends account to log into Valorant. This process was changed, with the developer converting those accounts into Riot Accounts that can be used for Valorant, League of Legends, and other Riot Games titles at the same time.
Do I need a Riot Account to play Valorant?
Yes. If you’re playing Valorant, this means that you already have a Riot account. So, you don’t need to create another one to change your in-game name.
How to change your nickname in Valorant
It’s a pretty simple task. First, you need to head to Riot Games’ official website and log in there. After logging into the website, find the Riot ID sub-menu and click there. Here you can change your name in Valorant.
Can I change my tagline in Valorant?
Yes, you can. As the same process with changing the nickname, log in to Riot Games’ website and alter your tagline in the Riot ID sub-menu.
Is changing the nickname in Valorant free?
Unlike Riot Games’ MOBA League of Legends, changing your nickname is 100% free in Valorant.
How many times am I able to change my name in Valorant?
There is no limitation to changing your name in Valorant with the only exception being that you can only perform the procedure once every 30 days.
Are there any prohibitions in nickname changing?
Riot Games doesn’t allow players to use hateful, offensive, or swear words as their nicknames. So, be careful when choosing your name in Valorant.
You’re also not able to alter your Valorant nickname from in-game, and this process is the only way to change your in-game name in Valorant.
