How to Change Your Name in Apex Legends


Apex Legends is likely the most popular game on the planet right now. It is still possible to find a large number of players in 2022, and the game’s meta and viability of its characters are constantly being tweaked by buffs and nerfs. Additionally, the full release of the mobile version is approaching.

Many players still aspire to achieve the rank of Apex Predator, although many prefer to do so under a different moniker than their current one. After a period, a profile name might get monotonous, and you may have the impression that it is time to switch things up. That is just what you can accomplish in Respawn Entertainment’s shooter.
