Knowing about emerging BGMI Esports Players

Top 3 BGMI esports players to watch out for in 2022


Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) is a Battle Royale mobile game that has given several stars to the Indian mobile gaming community. Esports in India has grown to greater heights since the introduction of PUBG Mobile in 2018. However, the ban on the game was a significant setback, and the sport only rose again after BGMI’s release in 2021.

BGMI Esports is continuously growing through the massive number of tournaments being played nowadays. All these tournaments are unofficial, yet they have already given us moments to cheer about.

With BGMI’s first official tournament, BGIS, yet to be played, these unofficial tournaments’ live streams witness a massive watch count. The underdogs and established teams have fought against each other on Erangel, Miramar, and Sanhok, resulting in the emergence of new players on the scene.

These BGMI Esports players are forces to be reckoned with and all eyes are on them in 2022

1) Rudra “SPower” B

Rudra SPower

SPower as a BGMI Esports player is a beast to be reckoned with. His reflexes are second to none, and his close-range combat skills are probably among the best. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that Spower’s combat can easily match names like Jonathan, Mavi or Punkk.

SPower began his journey with Team 8Bit and gradually rose through the ranks from thereon. He is now a part of GodLike Esports and reinforces the already robust lineup of Jonathan, Clutchgod, ZGod and Neyoo.

It’s heartbreaking for BGMI Esports fans that Spower cannot participate in official tournaments as he is a teen and a few years short of playing official tournaments. However, in the upcoming unofficial tournaments, SPower can be seen showing his skills.

2) Akshat

Akshat BGMI

Akshat is a name in the BGMI Esports community that has created terror in the minds of other competitive players. His hard work and grinding off-screen has been reflected in recent tournaments.

Akshat began his Esports career with Team UMumba. However, he shone on stage with Team 8Bit. His rise was unexpected to many. His MVP title in the Thug Invitational tournament and the Emerging Player award in SkyEsports Championships 3.0 shows his valor.

Currently, a Chemin Esports player, Akshat is sure to create wonders in the future.

3) Aditya Mathe

Aditya Mathe BGMI

Aditya Mathe is another rising player in BGMI Esports. Aditya is currently with OR Esports. Though his current form has not been as great as others mentioned already, his caliber as a player is unquestionable.

Mentored by Scout, his MVP award and the winner’s title in the PMCO: Fall Split 2020 India reflect his potential. Aditya is a player to watch out for in the upcoming tournaments.

Looking at the best BGMI esports IGLs

3 best IGLs in BGMI esports as of 2021


BGMI is a battle royale game that prioritizes the position of the in-game leader (IGL). This person acts as the pivot around which an esports team plays. Like the captain in each sport, the IGL propels the team towards victory.

Ever since the introduction of PUBG Mobile in 2018, the Indian mobile gaming market has soared. The ban on the game in 2020 was a massive setback for the Indian mobile esports community. However, the introduction of Battlegrounds Mobile India this year witnessed the rebirth of mobile esports again.

BGMI has had teams that have given fans everlasting memories to cherish. The community is blessed with extraordinarily talented and witty IGLs who often leave the audiences in awe of their quick decisions.

Who are the best IGLs in BGMI esports?

1) Vivek Aabhas “Clutchgod” Horo

Based on current form, it has to be said that Clutchgod is indeed the best BGMI IGL at the moment. Ever since the Godlike Esports BGMI team was formed, Clutchgod, along with his teammates Zgod, Jonathan, and Neyo, have created a riot in the community, winning almost all the trophies.

Clutchgod rose to the ranks in 2019, playing for Team Soul. However, he established himself as the leader of TSM Entity when he joined the organization. After the side was released, Clutchgod, along with his teammates, joined Godlike Esports.

Clutchgod, as an IGL, has since won the LOCO War of Glory: Grand Finals, Ranbhoomi Season 1, and Skyesports Championship 3.0. He is sure to win more championships if he continues to be in such great form.

2) Harmandeep “Mavi” Singh


Referred to as “the man with the golden arm”, Mavi is a beast of a player. His grenade skills have clinched him this title, and the powerful assaulter is known worldwide for his prowess as an IGL.

Mavi is often tallied with Clutchgod to be the best IGL in BGMI esports. His exploits with his former organization, Orange Rock (OR) Esports, are known to all. Wins in the PMPL South Asia: Season 1, ESL India Premiership 2020 Summer Season: Finals, and Nimo TV Battleground Season are part of his accolades.

However, Mavi’s most valuable tournament was the PMWL East: Season 0, where he carried OR to the second position. He left OR to join Team SOUL but plays for Team X Spark nowadays.

3) Yogesh “Roxx” Yadav

Yogesh Roxx

Roxx is an inspiration for underdog players, and Team Celtz’s wonder run is etched in esports history. Roxx, as an IGL, delivered when no one expected him to, winning the PMPL South Asia: Season 1 Finals.

Roxx then led the merged Galaxy Racers and Celtz to wins in Crew Mania and LOCO Gamer League: PUBGM Monsoon Knockouts.
