There are several details you need to keep in mind when setting up an account to play Free Fire Battlegrounds. If you are trying to register your nickname and get the error "nickname cannot be used" then you have missed certain essential steps. We have the solution and we will show you how to correctly create a nickname. If you're not inspired, use our nickname generator to pick a cool nickname!
How to create a nicknameThere are three ways to log in to the game: using your Facebook, creating an account on Free Fire itself or using the Russian social network VK (VKontakte). If you prefer not to link your Facebook account to Free Fire, try creating an in-game account by pressing the button in the image above. If you create an account on Free Fire using any of the login means the initial menu will have to choose your name / nickname and your gender.
Choose a nicknameThis is where many players try to create a nickname and fail, getting the error "nickname cannot be used". If you get this error, try simply trying another nickname . Remember that Free Fire is played by thousands of players and there may be people with the same idea as you. You can use upper or lower case letters, numbers, and even symbols such as%, $, and others. Your nickname must be at least 6 characters long (letters, digits, or numbers). Always remember to use common sense when choosing your nickname. Imagine when you are playing with a squad and your nickname is unreadable or hard to say into the microphone. Therefore do not complicate.
- Choose a nickname that has meaning to you;
- Do not use profanity in Portuguese or English (or any other language);
- Pick a name that stays in your ear, especially if you're going to stream or post it on YouTube;
- Use your imagination.
How to give invisible space in nickEveryone knows that you can't put space in the Free Fire nick just by pressing the corresponding button. Still, there is a simple trick you can do to get around this game impediment. All you have to do is copy an invisible code, which will be added to the nick . See how:
- Copy the code that is in the parentheses, but not the parentheses: (?)
- Stick it on a notepad on your phone or PC to keep it handy.
