Kill to Death Ratio, or what is often referred to as K/D, is one of the most popular stats when it comes to Call of Duty: Warzone. We’ve got a detailed breakdown so you can see exactly how your K/D stacks up.

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 is always in good fun to have bragging rights for who has the highest K/D and 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 a clever Reddit user, 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.

Thanks to Reddit user theguywithacamera, we can see a detailed breakdown of exactly how your K/D stacks up against the rest of the Warzone player base. The OP looked at roughly 100,000,000 Warzone accounts and figured out how each K/D ratio compares.

What is the average Warzone K/D?

According to theguywithacamera’s stats, the average Warzone K/D is 0.92. This means that the average Warzone player dies slightly more than they get kills. This is understandable, especially with the luck-based nature of battle royale games.

Players will find that the average Warzone K/D is around 1.00, meaning that a player with this stat gets one kill per death, which is not horrible for a battle royale game like Warzone, where you can get eliminated in the blink of an eye.

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.

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.

Make sure you’re running the best weapons and Perks, practice, and you’ll improve in no time. But at the end of the day, Warzone is a game, so you should prioritize having fun.

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 2.08, you’re well above average and are in the top 1%.

Some exceptional players will have K/Ds between 3.57 and 5, which puts them in the top 0.1%. These are often professional players or talented content creators, so don’t be disheartened if your K/D doesn’t compare.

The Reddit user also lightheartedly clarified that a player with a 6.0 K/D or above is “probably hacking.

Arthur Kingsley Operator Warzone Cold War

Players can now get a brand new operator called Arthur Kingsley for Warzone and Black Ops Cold War, who is straight out of Call of Duty: Vanguard.

Call of Duty: Warzone and Black Ops Cold War are now in Season 5 Reloaded, giving players an abundance of Operators to choose from.

With speculation around the Season 6 Operator floating around after the recent Season 5 outro cinematic, there is an Arthur Kingsley Operator players can get their hands on before that.

Arthur Kingsley Operator in Call of Duty: Vanguard

Call of Duty: Vanguard will be released on November 5. Now that players have finally had a chance to experience some gameplay with the Open Beta that was recently held, excitement is building.

As we edge closer to release, players are starting to question how Vanguard will integrate into Warzone and how it will carry on the seasonal story Black Ops Cold War has created throughout its integration with the battle royale.

The developers have decided to offer players a new Operator from Vanguard to obtain in both Warzone and Black Ops Cold War, giving players a taste for what’s to come.

How to get Arthur Kingsley Operator in Warzone & Cold War

In order to get Arthur Kingsley in Warzone and Black Ops Cold War, players must have Call of Duty: Vanguard pre-ordered.

The pre-order must be digital, so don’t be surprised if you have already pre-ordered a physical copy but are not eligible for the Operator.

Here are the further details on the Arthur Kingsley Operator from the Call of Duty blog:

“The incredible value of Call of Duty: Vanguard pre-order rewards just got more legendary.

Starting today, those who digitally pre-order any edition of Call of Duty: Vanguard, or who have already pre-ordered the game already, will be able to play as Arthur Kingsley in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.*

It’s one of two rewards you get immediately for Black Ops Cold War and Warzone from pre-ordering Vanguard before its November 5th release, alongside the “Night Raid” Mastercraft submachine gun.”

So, there you have it, that’s how you can get the new Arthur Kingsley Operator in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.

Call of Duty: Warzone

Warzone players passionately call for quitting penalty to be added

Call of Duty: Warzone players are fed up with teammates leaving games and are suggesting the developers introduce a penalty for leaving.

Warzone quitting penalty

Call of Duty: Warzone players have called upon the developers to introduce a quitting penalty for duos, trios, and squads as players are fed up with having teammates leave before the game is over.

Although Warzone has had a lot of success since the Season 5 Reloaded update, especially since the Iron Trials ’84 mode was introduced, recently, players have been unhappy with the state of the game.

Since the September 23 update, players have been noticing performance issues that have been running the experience. As well as these issues, players are now calling for developers to fix another, which involves introducing a leavers penalty.

Warzone players aren’t the first battle royale community to ask the developers to introduce a leavers penalty, as Apex Legends now has a similar system for ranked and Arenas, incentivizing players to stay in games longer.

This is the issue Reddit user Binarycold has been having in Warzone, as they put up a post explaining what it’s like to play “Warzone with strangers.”

In the post, the player seems to be fed with random teammates leaving games before it’s even done, stating that every game mode may as well be called solos or solos pending “since no one can ever stay in a full game.”

The user then states that the developers should “implement some penalty for quitting out, this is ridiculous!” Clearly, this player isn’t the only one who feels this way, as others in the comments also share a similar opinion:

“I’d love to see a deserter stat. Only applies on control initiated drops, not poor connection. I’d like people to be notified if the team they left won it too, or came second and might have won if the awol player would have stayed.

People have no tenacity any more. If they have a rough landing, they bolt. Where’s the grit? Softies”

It’s very frustrating when teammates leave the game when you could potentially recover from a bad landing or win a game despite being disadvantaged by a teammate dying.

We’re sure many teammates have missed out on great games and even victories as they have left way too early and would undoubtedly appreciate the developers introducing a leavers penalty to discourage this from happening.

With Warzone integrating with Vanguard in the future, there is always a possibility for the addition of a quitting penalty to be one of the changes made to the Call of Duty battle royale.
