How To Modify Your Overwatch Username Blizzard Account

Your Overwatch username is tied to your account rather than Overwatch directly. To change it, you need to change your BattleTag.

Things to Know Before Changing Your BattleTag

  • You get one free BattleTag change. Any changes after that cost $10 each.
  • It can take up to 24 hours for a BattleTag change to take effect across Blizzard games and services.
  • BattleTags must be 3-12 characters long and follow Blizzard’s naming policy and code of conduct.

Steps to Change Your BattleTag

  1. Log into your account
  2. Click on your username in the top right corner
  3. Select “Account Settings”
  4. Click on “Account Details” in the left sidebar
  5. Scroll down and click “Update” next to your BattleTag
  6. Enter your new desired BattleTag
  7. Click “Change Your BattleTag”

Alternatively, you can purchase a BattleTag change in the shop if you have already used your one free change.

Once changed, your new BattleTag will be updated across all Blizzard games and services tied to your account. This includes Overwatch.

So in summary, you need to change your BattleTag on your account, not your Overwatch username directly, to modify your name in Overwatch.
