who is BGMI Goat

Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI), the most popular battle royale game in India, is about to resume play after a ten-month hiatus. The official statement from Krafton states that BGMI will soon be accessible for download on Android and iOS gadgets. This is still very exciting news for the players and supporters of BGMI and its esports ecosystem, even though it is just a temporary unban for three months during which the Government of India will monitor the game. 

It is crucial to hunt up the top BGMI player in India, or as we like to call, “the BGMI’s GOAT,” since gamers anxiously await to watch their favourite pros dominate the battlefield and pick up a few tips.

In significant competitions like the BGMI Masters Series 2022, Villager Esports Winter Masters 2022, and Skyesports Grand Slam 2022, among other prestigious competitions, some of the greatest BGMI players from India have consistently made a major impression. India takes pride in its amazing pool of BGMI players, who play for a variety of teams including GodLike Esports, S8UL Esports, TeamXSpark, and others. Each player has their own special set of skills.

In BGMI esports, some of the most well-known players include JONATHAN, Mavi, Scout, Goblin, ClutchGod, and Saumraj. Since he is a consistently good player who owns several esports records, most people cite JONATHAN when discussing the top BGMI player in India.

However, players should be aware that determining who is the best player in any given game is quite subjective and takes into account a variety of features and attributes.

The  Goat?

The term “GOAT” (Greatest Of All Time) is frequently used in sports to honour players who excel in their particular sport or field. For instance, the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) community frequently refers to Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev as the GOAT of Counter-Strike, while the League of Legends community praises T1’s mid-laner Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok as the GOAT.

There are some professional players in BGMI who, as a result of their accomplishments and records, have made a name for themselves in the esports community. If we only looked at their winning percentage or popularity, it wouldn’t be a fair ranking. As a consequence, these are the top BGMI players in terms of tournament triumphs, in-game leadership (IGL) of their teams, and fan following.

Let’s look at the contender for this Goat title:


Since the beginning of his esports career, Jonathan “JONATHAN” Amaral has been at the top of BGMI esports. Currently playing with GodLike Esports, he has won several accolades, including most valuable player (MVP) since 2020. 

Four honours were given to JONATHAN in the BGMI Masters Series 2022 alone:

  • Finals of the BGMI Masters Series: MVP
  • Week One of the BGMI Masters Series: Damager
  • Damager in the Masters Series Finals
  • Week 3 of the BGMI Masters Series: Eliminator

He was also recognised as the MVP of other competitions, such as the Skyesports Grand Slam 2022 and the Villager Esports Winter Masters 2022. 

Since 2020, JONATHAN has taken home more than seven MVP honours from various competitions in PUBG Mobile and BGMI esports. 

Because of his consistency, well-known Indian figures like Animesh “Thug” Agarwal and Naman “MortaL” Mathur, as well as prominent PUBG Mobile players from other countries like Bilguutei “Skryyy” Bayasgalan, have been referred to JONATHAN as the BGMI’s GOAT in India.


Harmandeep “Mavi” Singh of TeamXSpark is frequently referred to as having strong IGL abilities by players and fans. Fans refer to him as the greatest IGL-cum-assaulter in BGMI esports history. The Indian esports community holds him in high regard for his outstanding IGL career, which has given him the moniker “Man with the Golden Hand.”

When SouL, India’s largest esports organisation, revealed in July 2021 that it had signed Mavi as the IGL of their stellar roster, the announcement sent shockwaves through the community. Mavi then departed SouL to launch TeamXSpark.

Mavi is renowned for his in-game rotation and Zone prediction abilities. In close quarters combat, he is invincible as well. It is frequently claimed that it is hard to defeat him in team deathmatch. 

Sahil “Omega” Jakhar of Team SouL had already received the honour of being named the “best BGMI IGL” from Tanmay “ScoutOP” Singh. He defended Omega in front of spectators during a watch party and said, “Before the ban, I feel, based on the prior performance, Omega is the finest BGMI IGL…Omega is present because he is superior than everyone else. So take notes on whatever he says.


To be referred to as BGMI’s GOAT, a player does not necessarily need to be an active professional. Sincerity dictates that it may very well be someone with an endearing disposition and interesting gameplay. We used BGMI YouTube stars with the most subscribers as our standard for this category. 

MortaL has a stunning 5.3 million Instagram followers in addition to almost 7 million subscribers on YouTube. Notably, MortaL still competes for Team SouL and serves as its owner.


Another well-known streamer in the Indian esports scene, ScoutOP, is connected to BGMI esports. He is frequently considered as one of the game’s top flankers and attackers. ScoutOP is a trailblazer, hence his impact on the Indian gaming scene cannot be understated.

Other well-known figures in the BGMI scene include Harsh “Goblin” Paudwal, Vivek “ClutchGod” Horo, Suraj Nityanand “Neyoo” Majumdar, Saumya “Saumraj” Raj, and Sohail “Hector” Shaikh. 

Notably, ClutchGod has earned the most money overall in BGMI esports, with a high total of 70,46,368 INR or, roughly, $85,230 USD.

Now the question arises again who is the goat of BGMI

Opinion on Who is the Goat?

It’s only appropriate for you to raise your hand and proclaim JONATHAN as the BGMI’s GOAT if you strongly value honours and the pure proficiency of gunplay above all else. JONATHAN is maybe the best India has ever displayed in the BGMI competitive arena, with many MVP performances at major BGMI competitions and a spectacular demonstration of mechanical talent.

Mavi, though, stands out as one of the finest players to have ever appeared in the game if you place greater weight on the job of an in-game leader with the capacity to guide a team to success. He has established himself as BGMI’s GOAT leader with his keen strategic insight and superb shot-calling.

Scout, though, stands out as the ultimate BGMI GOAT if you’re looking for a player that has all of these remarkable qualities—amazing gunplay, impressive strategic acumen, and entertaining. Scout has distinguished himself in a class of his own thanks to his accomplishments in the game, amazing gunfighting prowess, innate leadership skills, and amusing streaming persona. 

The BGMI GOAT is ultimately determined by personal preference and the attributes that are most important to each individual.
