What is KP in Apex Legends?

Apex Legends' ranking system for the Battle Royale works very differently from that of other shooters. Battle royales feature 20 teams in a single match but only one team can win, making winning consistently more difficult. Valorant and Counter Strike: Global Offensive players may be used to being rewarded ranked points purely on their ability to win a game, but Apex also factors in the number of kills or assists a player has as well as their placement in the match.

What is KP in Apex Legends?

KP or Kill Points is the scoring mechanic by which the Apex Legends ranked system factors a player's kills into their overall ranked score for that match. Ranked Points or RP are awarded to the player based strictly on their placement, but KP provides additional score for each kill up to six. The value for each kill varies depending on your current placement in the match.

Being placed in eleventh or worse will only earn you 10 points per kill, but players who take first will be awarded with 25 points per kill. For instance, If a player wins a match with one KP then they will receive 100 RP for winning and 25RP for their one kill, totaling out to 125RP. If that same winning player had the maximum 6 KP then they would be rewarded 150 additional points totaling to 250 .
