If you want to change your name in Valorant, you can do so from the official website in a few easy steps.
You may be prompted to login via two-factor authentication or input a code sent to your email.
Once your name is changed, it cannot be changed again for 30 days unless Riot flags your ID as offensive.

If you want to change your name in Valorant, you can do so every 30 days, but finding but going through the process can be annoying the first time. To change your name in Valorant, you have to do so from the official riotgames.com page after logging into your official ID. You can either follow our guide or submit a ticket to the support staff, and they will follow through with your request. Both methods work but submitting a ticket to change your name in Valorant can take up to a day or more. 

How to Change Your Name in Valorant

Once you have the necessary details, including your username and password, log in to your id on riotgames.com. You may be prompted to go through two-factor authentication if enabled or email verification is required. 

Riot GamesClick on Riot ID to get the account name change menu.
  1. Head to https://account.riotgames.com/riot-id
  2. Put in your login details.
  3. Check your email if the page asks for id verification.
  4. Enter the one-time authentication code from your email if required.
  5. Click on Riot ID on the menu. 
  6. Click on the pencil icon to edit your username. 
  7. Choose your new name.
  8. Click on Save.

You can use the same menu to edit your connected accounts, change your email and account password. You should be able to change your name in Valorant as soon as the 30-day cooldown is over. If your account gets flagged for being offensive, Riot will offer another name change, and all cooldowns will be overridden.

Riot IDs

Riot GamesYou can head to the official riotgames.com page to change your name in Valorant.

If you signed up for a new Valorant ID and do not know where to find it, you can log in to the game, and it’ll be the combination of your name with a hashtag and some numbers. Some IDs do not use the numbers and might denote your region instead.

For example, your ID might look like AFKGaming#EUW if you are from Western Europe. Once you have your ID ready, you can change your name in Valorant via the official website. The best part about Riot’s name change service is that you can change the display name as well as the hashtag. You can also request region transfers, which will change the hashtag number or code. 

Does It Cost Money To Change Your Name in Valorant?

The name change service does not cost any money. However, if you play other Riot Games titles like League of Legends, there is a cost to change your Summoner name, which does not apply to Valorant. Despite the service being free of charge, you will have to deal with a 30-day cooldown.
