Modern Warfare 2 campaign early access is now live, but many players are already having a lot of problems.

Can’t Change Display Name No Rename Tokens Modern Warfare 2

The day has finally come, the Modern Warfare 2 campaign is here for those who have early access. Alas, instead of enjoying the campaign, many players are suffering from various issues at the moment. The most annoying one currently is that almost everyone has received a message that their username is not allowed. This happens even though your name is seemingly perfectly fine. Even if you’ve been using it for years, now it is forbidden all of a sudden. But that’s not even the worst part. Rather, you are forced to change it, but the game tells you that you don’t have a rename token to do so. So, what to do?

The most important thing to point out is that this is a bug, and you should NOT try to change your name!! You most likely have a perfectly fine username. However, this “Modern Warfare 2 Change Display Name” error is currently plaguing early access players. Many are reporting about the issue on Reddit and social media. I know that it sounds bad, but you will simply have to wait until the bug is fixed. Hopefully, the developers are working on it as we speak and you will be able to jump into the campaign soon. We will make sure to update the article as soon as there’s more information.

Nikola's been playing video games since his father bought him the NES and the Sega Mega Drive in the early '90s. Later, he became a predominantly PC gamer who enjoys narrative-driven RPGs, real-time strategies, and psychological/survival horror games. Nevertheless, he appreciates any game that's worth his time.With over 12 years of experience in esports & gaming journalism, I like to think that my guides once helped a NASA scientist to beat a game. What I'm trying to say is that I should be credited for NASA's Mars missions. (I'm just kidding, please don't shoot me). In my free time, I dream of the day when I will finally start clearing my Steam backlog.
