Nikita “Derke” Sirmitev is a professional VALORANT player on Fnatic’s roster who primarily plays Chamber.
Despite being just 19-year-old, the Finnish-Russian player has been a pro gamer since 2018. Prior to switching to VALORANT in February 2021, Derke played professional CS:GO for SkitLite and KOVA Esports under the name “Derkeps.”
Since joining Fnatic’s VALORANT team, Derke finished second at the Masters Reykjavik in 2021. The team also placed first in the VCT EMEA Stage Two Challengers Two tournament in 2022, qualifying for VCT Masters Copenhagen and VALORANT Champions.
He might be young, but there’s a lot that casual and competitive players can learn from both Derke’s gameplay and his settings.
