How to Check K/D in Halo Infinite (Kill/Death Ratio)

For those who played Halo Infinite multiplayer beta, you might see a pretty high number in your postmortem kill-death-assist ratio or KDA. The ones that are weak in math might find it cool. Is it really cool? What is the meaning of it?

KDA refers to a metric that is used to measure your performance in competitive games. Usually, it is a formulaic equation that is based on your kills, deaths, and assists during the match. For those who try the first person shooters, you will be aware that it is the first stat that you check during the post match rundown. Compared to the outcome (win or lost), it is way more important.

How to Check K-D in Halo Infinite (Kill Death Ratio)

Then, what is the meaning of it and why does it have something to do with Halo Infinite numbers? To make it short, the KDA in the game called Halo Infinite is calculated in the same way as it was in another game developed by the same developer named Halo 5; Guardians. According to a lead multiplayer designer named Andrew Witts, it is (Kills + Assists/3) – Deaths). He said that an assist is counted as .3333 of a kill.

While it is the same as Halo 5, the way to calculate it is different compared to the other previous ones, including at the height of Halo’s popularity, when KD was used to be more than KDA. When Halo 3 was at top, the ration was a simple spread. Basically, the player took the skills and then subtracted the deaths. It was as easy as that. They ended each match with a decent round number that indicated, in certain, how great or how bad they would be performed.

However, Halo Infinite changed the script. Now, the players will be able to see a number that might seem impossible at the end of every match. While it is usually positive, it looks strange mathematically. On top of that, it is usually followed by a string of decimals. According to the developer of the game called 343 Industries, it is designed mainly to factor in the importance of assists. The lead multiplayer designer said that they see the value in telling the story of how assists play a big role to the success of the overall match. Those who often get kills stolen by the thieves who know how to use the Skewer must agree with the statement.

In the game that just released a few days ago called Halo Infinite, the term Kill-Death Ratio is used to determine the amount of kills a player gets before they die every time they spawn. As a player, you can check the K/D ratio by dividing kills with deaths. For instance, if you get 10 kills and 5 deaths in a given game, you have a 2 K/D ratio. The statement means you got a total of 2 kills before you died every time you spawned on average. To make it clear, you died once for every 2 kills you got.

Talking about the K/D ratio, keep in mind that it is different and not the same thing as K/D spread. For those who have no idea about K/D spread, it is the total kills minus the deaths. This one is a good metric for single games. Meanwhile, K/D ratio is a more appropriate metric for your career. The reason for this is that the more kills you get, the less useful K/D spread becomes. For instance, you have 500,000 kills and 470,000 deaths and a spread of more than 30,000 but your K/D is close to average. It should be noted that the more you play the game, the less useful and less recognizable the K/d spread metric becomes. On the other hand, K/D ratio starts to remain the same the more you play and it is way more useful for a long term.

For your information, the average K/D ratio of the player is 1.00, as every kill causes a death. This excludes death by suicide or betrayal. If you see a K/D ratio that is under 1.00, you can tell that you are drying more than you are killing. On the contrary, if your K/D is more than 1.00, it means you are killing more than you are drying.
