How to get colored name in Modern Warfare 2

Fortunately, nothing is challenging about changing your username color 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 color code in the up arrow function to get a colored nickname. At the moment of writing, there are only ten colors that you can use. However, there is a slight chance that developers will add new colors. You can find all working color 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 color 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.
