How to change your username in PUBG Mobile

PUBG does let you change your user name, but it's a bit more complicated than just heading into your account settings. You'll need to own an ID change card in your inventory, which might be already sitting in your inventory.Otherwise, you can buy an
ID Card at any time from the in-game shop using Unknown Cash (UC), the in-game currency which can be purchased using your Google Play Store credit.

Where to unlock an ID Change card from progress achievements

If you've played PUBG Mobile for more than a month, chances are you've already earned one or more from the Progress Missions. They might already be taking up space in your inventory.

The game awards players two ID Change cards at Level 3 and Level 10, which are all but gifted to you just for starting out playing the game. Level 3 requires you to add a friend (you can add me, OGmousemachine), and Level 10 requires you to complete Levels 1 through 9.

Here's how to find and collect those rewards:
  1. From the home screen, tap the Missions tab.
  2. Tap Progress Missions.
  3. Complete and collect the missions for Level 3 and Level 10.

Once collected, the ID Change cards will appear in your player inventory. Occasionally, ID Change cards are included as Royale Pass rewards, too, so that's worth keeping an eye out for in the next Royale season.

Where to buy an ID Change card in the shop

Let's say you've already used the free ID Change cards PUBG Mobile gives you, but you want to change your username one more time.

I got some good news and bad news.

The good news is that there's an easy way to acquire an ID Change card, but the bad news is that you'll need to pay for it. Found in the Treasures section of the in-game shop, an ID Change card will set you back 180UC (around $3 of real money).

Here's how to buy a ID Change card from the PUBG Mobile shop:
  • From the home screen, tap the Shop icon.
  • Tap Treasures.
  • Scroll down to find the ID Change card and tap the buy button.

I suppose if you think of your username as a part of your character's appearance in the game it makes sense that upgrading or altering it would be placed behind the same sort of paywall as the rest of the cosmetic upgrades. I'm not a huge fan of Tencent making players pay three dollars to change their name, but I guess adding a real-world cost to the process is a good way to prevent trolls from abusing the feature.
