Our KD calculator allows you to calculate your kill/death/assist ratios in your favorite video game! Now you can easily compare your results with those of other players.

If you'd like to find out what is KD ratio, and discover some essential facts about it - you've also come to the right place. 🎮

Keep in mind that our kill-death ratio calculator works both ways, so you can easily find out how many kills you need to achieve the ratio of your dreams, and finally make it into FaZe Clan.

How to use the KD calculator

It couldn't be any simpler, all you have to do is to enter the following values into our KD ratio calculator:

  • Your number of deaths;
  • Your number of assists; and
  • Your number of kills.

We decided to provide you with both your kill/death and the kill/death/assist ratios, since different games may take kills and assists together into the final account, so it doesn't matter if someone steals your kill.

You may want to play with it a bit and compare your KD or KDA ratios for different periods, or to your overall score.

How to calculate your KD ratio?

Our KD calculator is based on two simple equations:

KD = kills / deaths, for your kill/deaths ratio; and

KDA = (kills + assists)/ deaths, for your kill-deaths/assists ratio.

That means, if a player has 10 kills and 5 deaths, his KD ratio is equal to 2. A KD ratio of 1 means that the player got killed exactly as many times as he successfully eliminated his opponents.

What is a KD ratio?

The KD (kill/deaths) ratio is a good, unified way to compare player's proficiencies. It describes the number of kills and deaths achieved by a player during a game. As well as covering only one match, the KD ratio may be used for a given bundle of games, or for the player's whole career.

We shouldn't confuse the KD ratio with the KD spread, which is a term used for a single game to describe a player's or the team's skills.

What is a good KD ratio?

Once we know how to calculate the KD ratio, we should learn how to evaluate it:

  1. Look at the equation: it tells us that the more kills you get, the bigger the ratio, so the bigger the ratio, the better player you are.

  2. KDs below 1 means that you sometimes died without getting any kills.

A KD of 1 or greater generally means you were a benefit to your team, as opposed to being a feeder, but this may not take into account assists, or any strategic value you provided, e.g., capturing flags, healing.

What's the difference between the KDA ratio and the KD ratio?

Your KDA (kilL/death/assist) ratio is not as sensitive as the KD ratio. The addition of assists may blur the final result, and may raise your the overall score.

We know it's always difficult to stop playing, but once you do, these may be a good inspiration:
