It hasn’t taken long for Apex Legends to become the most popular Battle Royale game on the Internet, smashing all previous records held by Fortnite, PUBG, and more recently Black Ops 4. Although the game still has a few kinks to work out, it’s exceptionally fun to play and gives the entire battle royale concept a really good shake-up. Personally, I haven’t had this much fun playing a game since the original Halo release.

How Do You Change Your Player Name in Apex Legends? (Apex Legends Username Change)
If you are new to EA Origin the first thing you should know is that your EA Origin username is the same name you will be using in-game for almost all EA games. With the exception of a few offline games that still allow you to create your own character names. As a result, there is no option within Apex Legends itself to make the change, even the Apex Legends website doesn’t have a name change option.
In order to change your Apex Legends name on Xbox, PlayStation, and PC, you will need to do the following. First, head on over to the EA Website (Apex Legends) and sign in using the account you play Apex Legends from. Once you have signed in, click the Profile icon in the top right-hand corner, then select Account Settings.
Next, click Edit, to the right of the Basic Information heading, enter the verification code when requested, then enter your new Apex Legends user name in the ID box. Just remember that this name change will be for your Origin account, therefore affects all of your games, not just Apex legends.
If you change from your current Apex Legends username to a new one, your old name will become available to everyone else, so make sure you don’t have any change regrets. You may not be able to get your old Apex Legends username back.
