Are you sick and tired of your VALORANT display name? Then what’s stopping you from changing it?

In 2020, Riot Games shifted from being the League of Legends company to the “bunch of games” publisher, introducing VALORANT, Teamfight Tactics, Legends of Runeterra, and Wild Rift to the world.

This led to the developer rethinking its username and account system and implementing some major changes. Instead of a separate account for each game, the developer switched to “Riot accounts.” This global account is all you need to sign in to any of Riot’s titles, including VALORANT.

But the name-changing process in VALORANT isn’t quite the same as games like League of Legends. You don’t have to spend in-game currency to change your name. The process is absolutely free.

How to change your display name

To change your name, close the VALORANT client (if it’s open), log in to your Riot account from your browser, navigate to the Riot ID tab at the top of the page, type in your new name, and click save changes. It’s that simple.

You can also change your tagline, which can be found at the end of your name. It includes a hashtag and a set of numbers or letters, similar to a clan tag in League. You have the option to change your name and tagline once every 30 days using this method.
