## KD Ratio Calculator

What is your KD ratio? KD is short for kill to death ratio. It’s most often used in shooting and fighting video games to describe how often you die versus how often you kill someone. In games that rely solely on kills vs deaths, this is a key metric and your ability as a video game player. In games where assists and other metrics are taken into account, this is only one factor that describes your skill.

This is normal displayed as a ratio as follows:

KD = K : D or K/D

• where K = Kills
• D = Deaths

KDA = (K + A) / D

• Where K is kills
• D is deaths
• and A is assists

So how do assists work into this equation/? Some times, assist are included in this formulas the same as kills. In other words it takes the form of (K+A)/D where A is number of assist.

You can use the calculator above to to calculate both of these formulas.

## What is a good KD ratio?

An easy way to look at KD is to assume that a KD ratio of 1 is exactly average. That’s because for every 1 kill you have 1 death, or exactly average. Anything above a KD of 1 is above average and everything below is that is below average.

An example of a good KD is 4.0. That is you have 4 kills for every 1 death. When looking at the the normal player base, this KD is usually in the 95th percentile of players. That is only 5% of players have a KD this good.

When looking at KDA, these numbers get inflated drastically because you can have a lot of assists with out getting any kills.
