Changing your name in Halo Reach is an possible, but you have to know where to look. When you buy the game on PC, you’ll have to log into an Xbox Live account, no matter which store you bought it from. If you don’t have one, you can create it for free. When you run it for the first time, a name will be randomly assigned to you. If you don’t like it, you’ll have to jump through a few hoops before you can rename your character. This guide is going to show you how to change name in Halo Reach on PC.
How to change name in Halo Reach on PC?
First of all, you’ll have to log into your Microsoft account, either via the browser or the Xbox Console Companion. Once you’re there, you’ll be able to change your gamertag. Click on the user icon at the top of the sidebar on the left, and you should see the option listed under your current gamertag. This will change the name that’s displayed in the game. It might not work out of the box – after you’ve made the change, restart Steam, run the game again, then change profile (sign out and then back in). When you’ve done all that, the new gamertag should be displayed correctly.
If none of that helps, that means the problem is out of your hands and your best bet would be to contact Microsoft’s support team. They should be able to assist you with the issue, or fix anything that might be broken on their side.
Once you’ve resolved the issue, you’ll be able to enjoy the relatively short single player campaign and the multitude of multiplayer game modes and maps, along with a hefty equipment customization and upgrade system that rewards you with new stuff as you rank up. In other words, be prepared to grind ranks for a while.
