This is the place to get a fantastic gamer tag. You're short on time - you want to get to that new game or new console ASAP! That's why OverTwo is the best place to pick a great new gaming identity for you. These work well for XBox, Playstation, Switch, or computer games.
Features of these gamer tags
- Gaming-oriented. These are not like boring usernames for emails or Twitter - although you could still use them for that if you wanted to. The terms used in this generator are ones that will appeal to a gamer.
- Stands the test of time. You won't find toddler-age tags like "BabyUnicorn" or anything like that. These tags will work for you now and 10 years down the track.
- Just a little bit off the beaten path to be less likely to be taken already. These gamertag ideas are not the absolute first thing anyone's going to think of, so while it's definitely gaming-oriented, they're just a tiny bit different. There's no guarantee that the usernames we suggest are going to be available, but being a bit different should give you the best odds of them not being taken.
If you don't find a gamertag you like at first glance, just press the Generate New button. There's no limit to how many times you can do it! Always have more than one name in mind when you're first going to set up your user profile on your new console or game. That way you're not back to square one if your favorite gamer tag is already taken by someone else. So feel free to get trigger-happy on that Generate New button!
If you're absolutely set on a tag but it's already taken, consider reversing it so the first word comes second and vice versa.
You can also consider adding numbers to your desired tag, but don't do that unless you have to. The reason is that when you're telling your friends your gamertag IRL it's way too easy to forget what the numbers are. Worse, they may accidentally try to friend a total stranger by putting in the wrong number. Don't worry, there are still good gamertags available out there that don't rely on you adding numbers to them.
A better option if your favorite gamertags are taken, is to add a third word from one of the other usernames it generates. For example, if you wanted to use "BossPortal" but it was taken, try adding another word to it, for example "PrimeBossPortal"
