In 2019, ScoutOP’s journey through the esports arena witnessed a series of remarkable achievements and transitions.

Following this, TeamIND represented India at the PUBG Mobile Club Open – Spring Split Global Finals, where it showcased a mediocre performance to finish at 23rd position. In August 2019, Fnatic entered the Indian esports landscape, marking a crucial moment in ScoutOP’s career as he was signed by the prestigious organization.

With Orange Rock, ScoutOP attained remarkable feats, including a notable 11th place finish in the PUBG Mobile India Series 2020 and an impressive 2nd place in the PUBG Mobile World League 2020: East.
