One of the most exciting aspects of Warzone is racking up large amounts of kills with your teammates on the way to securing a win. However, it’s always good fun to have bragging rights for the highest K/D, as well as comparing yourself to Warzone’s best.
With players often wondering if their K/D is good or not, they look for what is considered to be an average Warzone K/D and see where they stand when compared to it. Thanks to Warzone expert JGOD, we’ve got exactly how your K/D shapes up.

What is a K/D ratio?
A Kill to Death Ratio, commonly referred to as just K/D, is the ratio between how many enemies you’ve killed, and how many times you’ve died. The higher the K/D, the better you’re playing.
Deaths caused by eliminating yourself or a teammate crashing a helicopter count towards your K/D, even though the death was not caused by losing to an enemy player. Also, dropping into a game and having a quick death, then losing your Gulag counts as two deaths. And it’s fair to say this happens to everyone, even the best players.
Thanks to JGOD, we can see a detailed breakdown of exactly how your K/D stacks up against the rest of the Warzone player base.
What is the average Warzone K/D?
According to JGOD and WZRanked’s stats, the average Warzone K/D is 0.92. This means that the average Warzone player dies slightly more than they get kills. Meanwhile, the average K/D on Rebirth Island is 0.96, slightly higher thanks to that mode’s more forgiving nature.
The overwhelming majority of players will have a K/D ratio sitting somewhere between 0.6 and 0.9, as you can see from the graph above.
Only a minuscule percentage of the player base are able to rack up more than a couple of kills per death. However, the lucky few that go positive consistently raise the overall average slightly.
What is a below-average Warzone K/D?
A Warzone K/D significantly lower than 1.00, such as 0.75, is considered to be below average. If your K/D is below 0.4, then you’re in the bottom 20% of players.
Don’t be discouraged by having a below-average K/D though, nobody starts out capable of getting consistently high-kill games.
What is an above-average Warzone K/D?
A K/D well above a 1.00 such as 1.5 to 2.0 puts you in the top 10% of players. If you’re higher than 3.00, you’re well above average and are likely in the top 1%.
Some exceptional players will have K/Ds between 3 and 5, which puts them at the absolute peak of the game. These are often professional players or talented content creators, so don’t be disheartened if your K/D doesn’t compare.
There’s also the possibility that players with huge K/Ds could be hacking, which skews the statistics slightly.
