Change Your Nick Color in Wolfenstein Enemy Territory

This article will teach you how to change the colour of your nickname in Return to Castle Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory.


  1. Use these symbols when typing in your nickname:
    • Add a ^ and follow that with a number or letter or symbol in front of the text you want to change.
    • Each number from 0 to 9 is a different color. ^0 = Black, ^1 = Red, ^2 = Green, ^3 = Yellow, ^4 = Blue, ^5 = Light Blue, ^6 = Violet, ^7 = White, ^8 = Orange, ^9 = Grey. Or you can add a ^ followed by letters e.g ^a ^b ^c ^d ^e ^f etc.
    • If you want to use a ^ in your name, you need to follow it directly by another ^. i.e. For Wolf^Player, you would have to have Wolf^^Player.
  2. Remember that colored names that are the same as each other will kick the fake one.
  3. You must remember that not all servers colours are the same like for example ^6 this maybe red in one server but it may be different on another server, so it is a good idea to ask the people with colour on their name as it may not come out how you want it.
  4. Example: ^1Newbie ^8player ^312345
  5. That will appear as: Newbie player 12345
  6. (red) (orange)(yellow)


  • Try making a Bind for your name. In the main folder open a notepad document, and in that type set name "your name here". Then go to File, Save As, Save File Type As - All Files, File Name - Name.cfg, Save. In game drop down the console (with the ` button) and type /exec Name.. Done!
  • Make sure not to delete important files
