Top 10 Upcoming Gaming Influencers In India

As a result of its growing popularity, the gaming industry has seen a boom in popularity in recent years. As well as in India, gaming is becoming increasingly popular.

Due to this, many people are now choosing to make gaming their primary source of income. Different social media platforms offer a wide variety of gaming channels these days.

Change in the Gaming Mood

The gaming industry is one of the highest-paying jobs in the world today. A well-known gamer earns between 2-3 lakhs per month depending on the popularity of the game he/she is currently playing.

It wasn’t long ago that gaming and playing PS4 were taboo. Kids were retrained to spend hours playing games on their cell phones, laptops, or even computers by their parents in those days.

The digital world we live in has now exceeded the boundaries of retraining back then, and has opened doors to new career opportunities that didn’t exist before. Currently, there are many gaming influencers who see this as a career opportunity. In India, there are a number of gaming influencers who are making a name for themselves.

The BGMI gaming skills of Ravi Rawat, who is based in Uttarakhand, India, are his main accolades. In 2018, he started a YouTube channel, but the audience didn’t respond well to it. As a result of this event, he received his first Silver Play button and after this event, he was recognized as the no. 1 Solo gamer on PUBG.

On YouTube, Ritik Jain and Jash Dhoka run the channel Two Side Gamers. Garena Free Fire is regularly streamed by them. YouTube considers them to be the first gaming channel with partnered content. Additionally, they have 1.3M Instagram followers.

Rishabh Verma runs the channel Antaryami with his mind-blowing PUBG gameplay. In addition to roasting by profession, he also does live streaming for around 2-3 times per week for his audience. Born and raised in Uttar Pradesh, Rishabh Verma started his YouTube channel by uploading roasting videos.

Amit Sharma is a Youtuber, gamer, and free fire player who has named his channel ‘Desi Gamers’. Some sources claim he got a few strikes on his videos after he started his channel in 2018. He later became renowned as a Garena free fire gamer. He has 2.5M followers on Instagram as well.

It is no secret that Aniket Sood started his YouTube channel back in 2015 when he took up the role of a professional gamer and streamer.

This gamer is known for his funny gaming zone skills and displaying moments in PUBG that are memorable and amusing.

Due to the escalating popularity and much heightened fame of the gaming industry in India, many young people have been attracted to it by the other players.
