The PUBG Mobile India Series was the unofficial finishing point for the Spring season and although 7 Indian teams are set to represent the region in the World League Season Zero, the rest of the teams will have to try again next time. While teams continue to play in other tournaments such as the PUBG Mobile India Series and other third party events and scrims, it’s time to take a stock of which players have impressed over the course of the spring season. Here’s our pick for the top 10 PUBG Mobile players in India:
10. Sc0utOP - Orange Rock
It has been a rocky season for Scout and Fnatic, but his recent move to Orange Rock may be the key to unlocking some new secrets. While we all know that he is an insanely talented player in the mid and long range, whether the super team will work is something that we are yet to find out. While Orange Rock had a very decent run till the semifinals stage at PMIS, they completely broke down in the finals. Of course a large part of this has to do with their IGL, Mavi having some issues with his health, but it was still disappointing for the fans. Everyone expects great things from Scout and while the player is always in the headlines, his trophy cabinet does feel a bit empty at the moment. Like everyone else on this list, he too will be in action at the World League, which kicks off at the end of this week.

9. Ted - SynerGE
An experienced player who brings a new depth to the squad
Ted joins the list in ninth position, with consistent high level performances in official and third party tournaments in recent months. The player was the third highest fragger in the PMPL South Asia league stage and is one of the few players in the Indian circuit, who has been around for such a long time. His experience and maturity will be invaluable to SynerGE in the World League and will hopefully make the difference in improving their performance from last season.
8. GiLL - Orange Rock
Arshpreet ‘GiLL’ Singh was Godlike’s (now NovaGodlike) best performer in the PMPL and a crucial part of why the squad managed to qualify for the World League. While he has now joined Orange Rock alongside Mavi, Sc0utOP and Daljitsk, GiLL has managed to give everyone a glimpse of his famed skillset. He was the third highest highest fragger in the PMPL South Asia Finals and the 10th highest in the league stage. Fans can’t wait to see how he and his new superstar lineup are able to work together and how well they are able to represent India on a global stage. It is going to be his first major international tournament and GiLL seems to be the type of player who should be able to step up and shine, no matter what is put in front of him.
7. Vexe - Megastars
A rising star in the Indian PUBG Mobile community, Vexe is a young talent who has impressed everyone with his skills. One of the key members in the Megastars roster that has qualified for the World League, Vexe was the second highest fragger in the PMPL South Asia League stage. The young star is one of the hottest prospects in the region and with consistent fragging and good game sense, has managed to make a name for himself. In less than a week, he will be a part of the World League, where Megastars takes on some of the best teams and players in the world. That will be the biggest test in Vexe’s career up until now and it will be interesting to see whether the player can hold up in a high pressure environment.
6. Clutchgod - TSM-Entity
Having come into the limelight after winning the PUBG MOBILE India Tour in 2019, Clutchgod has shown no signs of stopping. From SouL to TSM-Entity, the player has managed to make a place for himself everywhere and has only gotten better with the experience from past events. The in-game leader for TSM-Entity, Clutchgod not only enables his star players to go and frag out, but is also consistently on the charts himself. In fact, he was the top fragger in the PMPL South Asia Finals - true testament to his team’s aggressive kill heavy playstyle. It’s fair to say that he has one of the most difficult roles in the team and although it may not be the most apparent, he and Neyoo have to be the most versatile and adaptable players in the squad, while also contributing to the kills.
5. Owais - Fnatic
Despite a very mediocre season in terms of results, Owais remains one of the fan favorites in the country due to his long history and incredibly high skill level. A dependable figure in the team, Owais is not only the primary in-game leader for Fnatic but an exemplary performer who seems to always contribute with kills and assists. The arrival of Maxkash seems to be working for the squad as Fnatic’s second place finish at PMIS 2020 proved. Owais was the 5th highest fragger at PMIS.
While Fnatic may not have qualified for the World League and will most likely be playing third party events for the next couple of months, fans of the player will be happy to know that Owais will be seen at World League, where he will be playing with Megastars. His experience and versatility will be extremely useful assets for the team and we can't wait to see what he is able to achieve with Megastars.
4. Seervi - SynerGE
While he may not be the most popular name on the list, Seervi is one of the region’s most consistent performers. With a heap of raw talent and fragging power, Seervi also calls the game for his team and has slowly but surely developed into an incredibly well rounded player. He has helped transition his team to becoming a much more kill heavy play style and although the team has some trouble with placements and consistency, they have improved massively when it comes to fragging.
Seervi placed 4th and 6th respectively in the PMPL South Asia League stage and finals and made one of the most memorable plays of the tournament when he clutched a 1v3 versus eventual champions, Celtz to win a chicken dinner. Seervi, along with SynerGE will be a part of the World League, and while their last international outing was not the most memorable, he will be hoping for a better showing, this time around.
3. Mavi - Orange Rock
Considered to be one of the smartest players in the region, Mavi is undoubtedly the best IGL in India at the moment. With a very high level understanding of the game, Mavi is able to lead his troops with incredible efficiency and effectiveness and is one of the key reasons behind Orange Rock’s rise to fame. He is also a really strong fragger who is able to almost always contribute along with calling the shots and planning ahead. Another strong suit in Mavi is the fact that his usage of utility is by far the best in the country and he has shown this very consistently. Individual skills aside, what seems to be the most redeeming factor about Mavi is that he will always play for the team and is never afraid to do the dirty work for his teammates. Whether it be in terms of scouting, playing risky angles, being the first one to go in or baiting for his team, Mavi is a leader who leads from the front.
Having led his team to a brilliant win at the PMPL South Asia League stage, where he was also the fifth highest fragger, Mavi is a player who has a lot of potential. With new teammates arriving in the roster, he now has a stronger arsenal to work with and the upcoming World League will be a good test for Mavi and his boys, as they go up against the best of the best in the world.
2. Zgod - TSM-Entity
Having dominated the Indian circuit in recent months, TSM-Entity are undoubtedly the top dogs in the circuit. The addition of Abhishek ‘ZGod’ Choudhary at the beginning of the season has helped the team improve on their performances and taken them to a new level of domination. Zgod isn’t just a prolific fragger but an insanely smart player as well; his ability to solo carry his team, especially if TSM take some early casualties, is second to none. One of the most dependable names in India, Zgod is a name who has a bright future ahead. Zgod’s ruthlessness and big brain plays in-game seems to be the polar opposite of his personality in real life, where he comes across as extremely jovial and good spirited.
He was the 7th highest fragger in the PMPL South Asia League stage and in the recently concluded PMIS 2020 finals, he was awarded the Annihilator award for being the player with the most amount of damage.
1. Jonathan - TSM-Entity
There’s only one name which comes to mind when we say to India’s best PUBG Mobile player, and Jonathan Amaral has proved time and again that that name is his. The 19-year old player is almost always in the top 5 fraggers list in every tournament he participates in, if not at the very top. Excelling in almost every department and backed up by a squad who deserve to take the top 4 spots in this list, Jonathan’s ability to find kills in every situation and take gunfights confidently makes him a nightmare to deal with. There’s really no argument to be made about which player deserves the top spot and if you know someone wants to disagree, we’d really like to find out why.
Recent performances include being the top fragger at the PMIS 2020 finals and the PMPL South Asia League Stage. He was also the second-highest fragger in the PMPL South Asia finals, just behind his teammate, Clutchgod. There’s simply no point mentioning the countless number of big plays and clutches that the player has made, but a 16 kill performance on day 2 of the PMIS semifinals is one that we will all remember.
