Valorant: How To Change Your Name
When you know what you're doing, changing your name in Valorant is super easy. If you've been looking to change it within the Settings menu of Valorant itself, that's where you're going wrong. In order to change your name in Valorant, you will need to alter your Riot ID name entirely.
Your Riot ID will be representative of your display name in all of Riot Games' titles, so this includes League of Legends, as well as Valorant. So, make sure to choose a Riot ID that's suitable for both!
To change your name with Riot, use the following steps:
- Log into the Riot website here.
- Navigate to the 'Riot ID' tab.
- You can edit your name and save it here.
Once you have amended your name, you will have to wait 30 days before you're allowed to change it again. So, make sure to choose your ID carefully, as you'll be stuck with it for a month at the minimum.
That's all you need to know about making a change to your name in Valorant. If you require some more help with your Valorant settings, we recommend ensuring your mouse sensitivity and crosshair are up to standard before jumping into competitive play.
