How To Change Your Username - DayZ Standalone

In the 0.32 alpha patch, usernames were changed from being tied to your Steam account's name, to being a name exclusive to DayZ.

This username is, by default, your Windows user account name, which may not be something you want to play as in DayZ. Your account name also might be something that Battleye does not agree with, resulting in being kicked off the game with a BattleEye: Bad Player Name error.

Luckily, changing it is very simple: all you need to do is click on your name in the bottom right-hand corner of the main menu, and type in a new username. Very easy, although not immediately obvious.
