Working as of 1/21. I have only tested this on Xbox One. In theory it should work on PS4 and should allow most blocked characters.

Edit: My Activision ID has already been reset to anon. lasted less than a day. Others have had better luck and still have invisible name. Name resets seem to be random.

Requirements:
- 1 Name Token
- Computer or Smart Phone
- Xbox

Tutorial:
- Launch MW.
- Press Start, go-to Account, Select Activision Account.
- Press change display name and highlight over New Name.
- Download Xbox Console Companion.
- Open the Xbox App.
- Connect to your console, and select option to use your device as a controller.
- Copy this >ᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠ< (Copy without the ><).
- Press A on your device or controller.
- A text field should appear on your device, paste in the Invisible name.
- Select Confirm
- The game will restart, and your name should now be Invisible.

?Fixes?:
Having trouble copying Whatever is between the arrows on iOS it won’t let me just select whatever is in between them
try copy all of it into your notes and delete the >< without deleting the invisible text

Edit, for iPhone copy the >< and paste into notes and copy the ?

Mine was via Xbox app on Android. Maybe if you've got Windows try bluestacks to emulate Android and try that way?

Also I've not done a full test of every single character (symbol) but I tried to use the same method when editing clan tag to input Xbox buttons but the 10 or so I tried came back illegal character

i used my token for the invisible name, tried making a button name to see if it would work, but I couldn’t save it from not having a token etc

It tells me it contains a invalid glyph, i paste >< in the Box and it won’t let it confirm. Am I missing something?

Edit: I see what am i doing wrong, but there’s nothing in between the two arrows.

Edit: I got it to work I had to go to Here to grab it lol

If your on iPhone, paste it into notes first and then copy the ?, and it should work.

Yeah you will need a Token for this to work.
What if we did on a fresh account and did it then opened up callofduty website with both accounts logged into two different tabs and copied from one to another?

I don't think that would work. The method to do it on the website was patched already. As the website blocks special characters, the console isn't at the moment.

Edit: Though there is a way around the filter. I've seen the single letter and other names that normally error out. I know their doing it from the website on iOS. But haven't gotten it to work yet.
