Introduction to Gaming:
On June 25th, 2019, Aditya Sawant published a video on his YouTube channel Dynamo Gaming in which he talked in detail about his offline life and how he was introduced to gaming.
Aditya and his passion for gaming started fairly early during his school days. According to Dynamo, his gaming journey began when he was in the 6th grade. One Saturday afternoon Adi and one of his friends came across a shop a couple of km away from their school. Dynamo describes the shop as something like a game parlor where people were playing video games on TV. This intrigued Dynamo and he came back the very next day to watch people play. The day after, Aditya saved his tiffin money and went to the shop to play games with it. For the next three years from 6th to 9th grade, this became his regular routine. Aditya would save his tiffin money and use it to play games in the shop with it.
Later, Aditya started playing games on an old laptop at his home. The first games he played were IGI and Roadrush. Young dynamo was also introduced to DOTA by one of his cousins during his school years.
Aditya opened his YouTube channel named Dynamo Gaming in 2011 at the age of 16. He used to upload playthroughs of a wide range of video games, which included the likes of Battlefield, battlefield 2, battlefield 4, Dota 2, and G.T.A. However, his content didn’t get many views, and Dynamo gaming remained unknown to the Indian gaming community.
First PUBG Gameplay:
With the coming of Jio’s affordable high-speed mobile internet, India saw a massive increase in the number of daily internet users. Which, in turn, helped Mobile games like PUBG gain a lot of popularity. Dynamo gaming posted his first PUBG gameplay on his channel in early 2017. At first, Aditya started playing PUBG Mobile along with PUBG PC, but he didn’t gain much viewership and popularity in his live streams. The same year in August, Dynamo gaming live-streamed PUBG Mobile for the first time.
Breakthrough and Birth of Dynamo as a YouTube Star:
In August 2017, Dynamo gaming posted a video of PUBG Mobile gameplay that went viral. The playthrough was the first video of Dynamo gaming that gained so many views. After that video, the channel saw a steady rise in viewership and Dynamo became known as a PUBG Mobile gamer to the masses.
Aditya disclosed later in an interview with Tech2 that he still watches the video, and he feels terrific. Since the viral clip, multiple people came to visit him in each game. “Meeting fans like this is a bit weird, but it is great feeling none the less” the YouTuber explains.
The rise in the Popularity of Dynamo and Streaming:
With the increase in popularity of PUBG Mobile, Dynamo gaming’s popularity also skyrocketed. Dynamo’s flawless headshots using Kar 98k became especially popular among his fans and followers. Soon enough, Dynamo became a household name of almost all Indian gamers.
Dynamo started live streaming on various platforms with the rise of his popularity as a PUBG Mobile player. During live streams, Dynamo can be heard shouting phrases like “Patt se headshot ” and his trademark all-time fan favourite dialogue” Baap se panga nahi lete bete“

Controversies Surrounding Dynamo Gaming
Like most people who shot to fame, Adi also had his fair shares of controversies. From the early days of his PUBG Mobile live streaming, Aditya, better known by his in-game name Dynamo, used to play PUBG Mobile using emulators. Many YouTubers disliked this, and they started trolling Dynamo Gaming. Some also spread rumours about how Dynamo gaming uses dishonest means (cheat codes/hacks) to win games. However, nothing was proved, and it is safe to say that these accusations are entirely baseless rumours spread by haters.
Despite all the negative publicity, Dynamo remained popular, and his fanbase continued to increase. Recently Aditya completely shifted from emulators to playing PUBG Mobile on Phone. All of his recent streams show him play using a phone. Currently, Dynamo uses an iPhone XS Max and sometimes ASUS ROG Phone 5 for his PUBG Mobile streams.
In 2019 PUBG Mobile became the most popular game in the play store. Owing to the enormous success of the game, the developers started PUBG Mobile Star Challenge (PMSC) with a total prize of $250,000. Dynamo, with 429140 votes, attained the first position after the final round of votes. Recently Dynamo was also invited to Taipei Taiwan for the shooting of YouTube web series. 15 other PUBG Mobile content creators from around the world are also said to be participating in that. Aditya has also played with other prominent YouTube gamers like Kloten and Carryminati in a few events.
