Bigetron Esports has announced their first Valorant roster and the Indonesian powerhouse has started to venture into PC titles with this new division. Bigetron is a familiar name to the mobile esports industry as they have rosters competing in all major mobile titles in the world.
Bigetron Esports is well-known due to their PUBG Mobile roster which brought home two world championship titles consecutively. Even though they failed to put up a show at PMGC, they are a force to be reckoned with.
In a social media post, Bigetron Esports welcomed their new division of Valorant and has named it Bigetron Astro. This team will compete in the upcoming major Valorant events in Indonesia and will represent SEA on the global stage.
The team will feature six players as follows:
- Niki “xoxo” Utomo (Sentinel)
- Fidel “fw” Saputra (Sentinel)
- Edward “fatpenguin” (Controller)
- Fikri “famouzy” Zaki (Initiator)
- Nico “nayy” Alvanius (Duelist)
- Thomas “cud” Alfiantino (Duelist)

Mobile esports has grown very much in the SEA region and Riot Games has already prioritized this region for their new titles. Recently, LOL: Wild Rift esports was kickstarted by Riot Games in the Southeast Asian region, and Valorant esports has also received a boost when the region was added in Valorant Champions Tour 2021.
Valorant is still a new title in the world of esports and as more and more organized tournaments are emerging around the world, new teams look to conquer the world and Bigetron has made their first move by forming a new roster that will represent their name in the upcoming major events.
As the roster is new, it will be interesting to see if they live up to the name of Bigetron Esports or not. Some big Indonesian tournaments are right around the corner and we might see Bigetron Astro in action very soon.
