PUBG Mobile remains one of the most popular games for Android since its launch in 2017, partly because the game is free but also because Tencent developers continue to add new maps and modes, and have consistently built a competitive edge.
Let’s say you decide to join a competitive clan and want to change your username on PUBG Mobile, or maybe you signed up for Facebook and your real name (the default username when you sign up for the social networking platform) is not ideal. PUBG allows you to change your username, but it’s a little more complicated than simply going to your account settings. You will need to have a change ID card in your inventory, which could already be in your inventory.
Otherwise, you can buy an ID card at any time in the game store using Unknown Cash (UC), the game currency that you can buy using your Google Play Store credit.

How to Change Pubg Mobile Username/Nickname?
If you have played PUBG Mobile for more than a month, you have probably already won one or more of the progress missions. You may already be occupying space in your inventory.
The game gives players two Change ID cards at Level 3 and Level 10, which are almost for you just for starting the game. Level 3 requires you to add a friend (you can add me, OGmousemachine), and Level 10 requires you to complete levels 1-9.
Here’s how to find and collect those rewards: On the home screen, tap the Missions tab. Touch Missions Progress.
Complete and collect missions for level 3 and level 10. Once collected, the ID change cards will appear in your player’s inventory. From time to time, ID change cards are also included as Royale Pass rewards, so it’s worth keeping an eye out for next season’s Royale.
Let’s say you’ve already used the free ID change cards offered by PUBG Mobile, but you want to change your username once again.
I have good news and bad news.
The good news is that there is an easy way to get an ID Exchange card, but the bad news is that you will have to pay for it. Found in the Treasures section of the game store, an ID change card will cost you 180UC (about $3 real money).
Here’s how to buy an ID Exchange Card at the PUBG Mobile store:
On the home screen, press the Buy icon. Tap on the treasures. Scroll down to find the ID change card and tap the buy button. I guess if you think of your username as part of your character’s appearance in the game, it makes sense to update or modify it to be placed behind the same type of payment wall as the other aesthetic enhancements. I’m not a big fan of Tencent making players pay three dollars to change their name, but I think adding a real-world cost to the process is a good way to keep trolls from abusing the feature.
