Can you Gift Rename Card in PUBG Mobile?
The question “Can You Gift Rename Card in PUBG Mobile“ is asked by many players who want to change their name but do not have any ID card or rename card, but their friend has. Thus, they try to figure out a way so that the friend who already has a spare rename card lying around in their inventory, can gift the rename card to the friend in need. The same thing happened to me when one of my clan mates wanted to change his name and include the clan tag, but has no rename card or UC to purchase a rename card. So, I went through all the options and discovered that you cannot gift a Rename Card in PUBG Mobile. Currently, there is no option to gift an ID card to your friend in PUBG Mobile, and by no means, it is possible. Although, we can only hope that it might be possible to do the same in the future.
In this article, we learned about how to change name in PUBG Mobile easily. These are the simplest steps that you can use to change your in-game name. Though, before that, you must make sure that you have at least one Rename Card in PUBG Mobile. If you do not have a rename card, then you either have to collect it through the level up reward section (if not already collected) or have to purchase it from the in-game shop. As we have stated above that right now, the rename card cannot be gifted, so you have not other option but to purchase it with UC.
We highly recommend you decide a good and unique name so that you do not get bored from that name too early and have to change it again. One important thing to keep in mind is, the Rename cards are not cheap, and if you make any mistake during the name change process, then you might have to purchase a new rename card to correct the mistake. So, you must make sure to avoid any typing or spelling mistakes in the first place.
