With the launch of Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 is finally here, officially kicking off the "next era" of the franchise, that also means it's time for everyone to start fresh once again in the kill-death ratio (KD) department.
In a competitive climate in which the terms "skill-based matchmaking (SBMM)" and "bot lobbies" generate genuine friction among COD players, it is perhaps no surprise that many take their KD ratios very seriously. After all, it is perhaps the clearest point of comparison players can use to weigh their skill in-game to others. Here's a breakdown of how to check your KD ratio in Warzone 2.
How to Check KD in Warzone 2
As in just about all competitive shooters, your KD ratio in Warzone 2 is determined by how many player-controlled enemies you’ve killed and how many times you’ve died. A KD of 1.0 in a match means you got a kill for every time you died (e.g. 10 kills and 10 deaths).
In COD, players often use their career KD ratios to compare themselves, which uses the all-time amount of kills and deaths they've accumulated on their accounts. In general, KDs are used to determine whether or not someone is good at the game. The higher your KD, the better you're considered to be.
Of course, KDs aren't the most accurate measure of skill, but in general, are used to determine whether or not someone is good at the game.
Unfortunately, Activision has yet to make the game's application programming interface (API) go live, which is essentially the backend tracking that shows all the stats. As such, this has made it so that every third-party tracking service looking to provide stat trackers for MW2 and Warzone 2 has been unable to do so.
Additionally, unlike with MW2 in the Season 1 update, Infinity Ward has yet to add the Combat Record feature in-game for Warzone 2.
As such, it does appear that players will have to simply sit tight until Infinity Ward does release its API and Combat Record feature for Warzone 2.
