How to Change Battlenet Name in Overwatch

From October 22nd on, Jesse McCree, an Overwatch DPS hero known as Jesse McCree will be changed to Cole Cassidy due to Activision Blizzard's workplace harassment scandal and their promise of giving players free BattleTag changes - typically costing $10.

If you are considering taking advantage of this offer, keep several points in mind. First and foremost is its limited nature: this one-time offer runs only until November 5. Moreover, changes won't stack with free changes made previously; your name must also adhere to Blizzard Naming Policy requirements between 3-12 characters long.

Start the process off right by visiting the official BattleTag service website and choosing a name for your account. Next, fill out and submit payment information which could take up to 24 hours to process. Your new BattleTag will appear across all Blizzard games you own so make sure it suits you well and select something you can keep with for an extended period.

Recall that one time when you stumbled into Overwatch drunk and accidentally created MajorBoobage? Now is your chance to put things right: Blizzard is offering players free BattleTag name changes until November 5--any further changes cost $10 each time.
