Many players in multiplayer video games wish to determine how many other players they kill for each time they are killed. This ratio, known as a kill/death ratio, climbs as your skill in the game increases. To calculate kill/death ratio you need the data on how many players you kill and how many times you die. In some games this information exists in the "Options" menu; other games display that data on the leader boards.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Locate your number of deaths and number of kills. In many video games, this is available in an "Extras" or "Options" menu under "Multiplayer Statistics."

  2. 2

    Write down the number of kills and number of deaths.

  3. 3

    Navigate to a website with a kills/death ratio calculator. Click on the text field next to "Kills" and enter your number of kills. Click on the text field next to "Deaths" and enter your number of deaths.

  4. 4

    Press the "Calculate" button to determine your ratio. A ratio of 1.0 means that for every one kill, you die one time. A ratio of 2.0 means that for every two people you kill, you die once.

  5. 5

    Calculate your kill/death ratio yourself by dividing your total kills by your total deaths. Use a calculator if you wish.

Tips and warnings

  • Although most ratios are written in the form A:B, kill:death ratios are typically written as a number.
