How to get coloured name in Modern Warfare 2

Fortunately, nothing is challenging about changing your username colour in Modern Warfare 2. First, you should head to the right side of the Settings menu. Here you can see your account level and change such essential attributes as the emblem, clan tag, and calling card.

You only need to input a unique colour code in the up arrow function to get a coloured nickname. At the moment of writing, there are only ten colours that you can use. However, there is a slight chance that developers will add new colours. You can find all working colour codes in the list below:

  • Black - ^0
  • Red - ^1
  • Green - ^2
  • Yellow - ^3
  • Dark Blue - ^4
  • Light Blue - ^5
  • Pink - ^6
  • White - ^7
  • Skye Blue - ^8
  • Dark Red - ^9

Moreover, you can change your nickname colour even if you are in a clan and want to have a specific clan tag. You should only add the up arrow function before the clan tag. After that, you should press the save button and exit the menu.

How do I see my coloured name in Modern Warfare 2?

However, you are sadly only able to see your coloured nickname at certain points while playing Modern Warfare 2. The first one is that the custom colour does not appear during multiplayer matches. For example, if you have a red nickname, it will not be shown when you kill an enemy or in the tab list.

Moreover, your nickname colour will not be shown if you are waiting in the lobby. The only place players can boast their nickname colour is the friends list.

How do I remove the coloured name in Modern Warfare 2?

Fortunately, it is also not hard to remove the colour from your name. You should only open the clan tag setting and delete an up arrow function. The colour profile will be automatically deleted from your account, going back to default.
