How to Change Name in Overwatch 2

To change your name in Overwatch 2, first, you need to open Next, click on your name beside your icon, and choose View Account. After clicking View Account, you will be redirected to Blizzard’s official website, where you can see your account overview. On this page, scroll down until you see your information, and select Account Details.


Once you’ve opened the Account Details page, scroll down until you see the Battletag section, and click Update to change your name. After that, you just need to enter your new name and hit Change Your Battletag to apply the recent name change. Keep in mind that you can only change your name for free once


You will no longer be able to update your name after the first change unless you purchase the BattleTag Change from The BattleTag Change costs ten dollars, so make sure you’ve decided on a name you want to keep for as long as possible.
