If you are a fan of video games, you probably know that your in-game name plays an important role. Generally, your friends use the in-game name to find you; this name also displays on the screen during the game. This guide will help you know how you can change your name in Modern Warfare 2.
How To Change Name in Modern Warfare 2?
Names play an important role both in real life and virtual life. Though you can’t change your name in real life, no matter how much you dislike it, in the world of video games, you can change your name if you get bored with the same name. Generally, every game provides this option; therefore, a popular series like Call of Duty can’t be an exception.
In Modern Warfare 2, if you get bored with the name you use in your Activision games and want to change the name in Modern Warfare, you can do it easily. The process is straightforward. Follow the below steps to change your name in Modern Warfare 2-
- Go to the Settings Menu
- Find your Activision Account
- Enter your new name and save the changes
This is the way to change the name using the Activision Menu. However, the Activision Menu automatically comes when you start the beta for the first time. Because the game uses your Activation account name instead of your PlayStation tag, you need to change the name of your Activation account to change the in-game name.
That’s all you need to know to change your name in Modern Warfare 2. While selecting a new name, be careful because, once you change a name, you have to continue playing with it for the next 6 months. You can only change your name once in six months. If you want to change your account name in between, you have to delete the existing account, lose all the progress, and create a new account with a new name.
