Step 1: Access your account settings in-game
From the main menu in game, navigate to Settings by clicking the gear icon in the top right corner of the screen or by pressing the menu button on controller. Select the Account & Network settings tab.
Step 2: Open your Activision account
Next, choose Activision Account under the Online tab.
Step 3: Change your Activision display name
Click Change Display Name and type a new Warzone 2 name in the text box.
Step 4: Confirm your updated name
Once you have the perfect Warzone 2 name, select Confirm to finalize your choice.
Step 5: Close and restart Warzone 2
After confirming your updated name, Warzone 2 will require an immediate restart. You should see the changed Activision display name when you log back into the game.
Keep in mind that Activision charges one token per name change, and all players start with two name-change tokens. Make sure you will be satisfied with the Activision display name you pick – it takes six months to regain one name-change token, meaning after two name changes, you are stuck with that username for at least six months.
New display names must be unique and clear the profanity filter. Try adding extra numbers or letters if the name you want is already taken by another player.
How to change the way your display name looks in-game
Activision also lets players modify how player names are displayed in-game.
- Go to the Interface in the Settings menu and scroll down until you see Player Names.
- From here, you can pick between Full, Abbreviated, and Icon only names.
Full Names displays players’ names and clan tags above their heads, the Abbreviated setting shows only names without clan tags, and Icon Only removes display names above players’ heads. Some Warzone 2 players prefer Abbreviated or Icon Only display names to reduce UI clutter.
