Arguably the most asked question in the history of Call of Duty: “What’s your KD?” That same question is still being asked in CoD: Black Ops Cold War, so let’s have a look at what the average KD ratio is.
Is there any bigger flex than boasting a higher kill-to-death ratio in Call of Duty than your friends? There’s just always been something so intrinsic to a Call of Duty game about KDs as they can be the measuring stick for how well someone has adapted to a newer release.
At the end of the day, no one cares if you’ve captured 10 flags in Domination, they care about your 15-killstreak that resulted in Scorestreaks and high elimination numbers. Cold War is no different from any other CoD game as it has great maps, awesome guns, and plenty of content to make the battle for KD supremacy worth it.
What is regarded as the average Black Ops Cold War K/D?
Due to the influx of SBMM and other factors, Black Ops Cold War has proven to be a tougher nut to crack than in previous years with even some pros struggling to stay above a 2.0 KD.
The general consensus is that if you are in the 0.9-1.1 KD region, then you’re in a good spot and on board with the average. This means that you’re pretty much killing one person for every one of your deaths.
If your kill-to-death is creeping under 0.90 per game, then you’re teetering on the cusp of being below-average and are dying more than you’re killing. Whereas if you’re 0.75 or less, then this is regarded as a weak KD, and it means you’re probably finishing near, or at, the bottom of your team in every game.
If you’re above 1.1 per game, then you’re overperforming and are comfortably eliminating more enemies per life than is generally expected. But if you’re going above and beyond and have a KD of 1.25 or more, then you’re an asset to your team in most elimination-based game modes.
How can I check my K/D in CoD: Black Ops Cold War?
There are a couple of ways to check how you’re progressing from game to game, and one easy way to check your kill-to-death as a whole.
After every game of Black Ops Cold War, you’ll be presented with a leaderboard showing your main stats for the last match, but if you cycle through the post-match tabs, you’ll also see your performance from the last few games as a comparison.
Another way to track your kills and deaths is to head to COD Tracker, type in your PSN Name, Xbox Live tag, Activision ID, or Battlenet name and it will reveal how you’ve been doing.
To find out your KD, either head to Cold War’s in-game barracks and check your Combat Record, or use COD Tracker to see your overall stats.
