What is an average KD in Call of Duty: Warzone?

Kill to death ratio, or what is often referred to as KD, is one of the most popular stats when it comes to Call of Duty: Warzone, as many players wonder whether or not theirs is above or below average.

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 KD with the people you drop into Verdansk ’84 with.

With players often wondering if their KD is good or not, they look for what is considered to be an average Warzone KD and see where they stand when compared to it.

Average Warzone KD

Players will find that the average Warzone KD is 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.

However, you may have a little less than a 1.00 and still not really be below average considering that deaths caused by eliminating yourself or a teammate crashing a helicopter count towards your KD even though the death was not caused by losing to an enemy player.

A Warzone KD significantly lower than 1.00, such as .75, is considered to be below average, while a KD above a 1.00 such as 1.5 to 2.0 is considered to be above average.

Some exceptional players will have KDs between 3 and 6 who are in the top 1% of players. These are often professional players or talented content creators and should not be compared to someone who plays casually.

Those interested in seeing where their KD stacks up against the rest of the community can either check in the game itself by heading to the Barracks and clicking on the kills option under Warzone by visiting a stats tracking website like COD Warzone Stats Tracker to see if theirs is above or below average.



Among Us coming to PS4, PS5 in 2021


A screenshot of Among Us with the Ratchet & Clank skin

Among Us launches later this year for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, Sony said during its State of Play streaming event Thursday. The PlayStation versions will get an exclusive Ratchet & Clank skin when the title launches.

The social deduction game, which first launched in 2018 but shot to newfound popularity with the quarantine gaming conditions of 2020, launched on Nintendo Switch in December and was announced for Xbox One and Xbox Series X the same month, although those platforms likewise do not have a specific launch date.

In addition to the skin, players on PS4 and PS5 will also get cross-platform online multiplayer support.

Among Us, in which a crew of human players must root out the alien impostors who mean to sabotage their vessel, became so popular last year that the developers at InnerSloth put development of a sequel on hold, to avoid splitting up the player base.


Castlevania season 4 trailer promises to end the series with a bang

Netflix’s fourth and final season of Castlevania is coming to the streaming service on May 13, and based on a new trailer released Thursday, the animated series will pull out all the stops for the finale — both in terms of better-than-ever animation and the sheer amount of blood and gore.

As Sypha Belnades (Alejandra Reynoso) notes in the trailer, Castlevania season 4 is going back to “where it all started.” Putting an even finer point on it, Trevor Belmont (Richard Armitage) adds, “Everything has led us here.” The two will have to contend with an attempted resurrection of Count Dracula Vlad Tepes — Dracula for short — as Isaac and Hector spin up an army of night creatures. Alucard (James Callis) will be there too, but will also “struggle to embrace his humanity,” Netflix says.

Here’s Netflix’s official synopsis of season 4 of Castlevania:

Wallachia collapses into chaos as factions clash: some attempting to take control, others attempting to bring Dracula back from the dead. Nobody is who they seem, and nobody can be trusted. These are the end times.

Castlevania debuted on Netflix in 2017 with a four-episode season. Seasons 2 and 3 dropped in 2018 and 2020, respectively. The fourth and final season will run 10 episodes. According to a report from Deadline, Netflix is eying a new Castlevania series that will follow a different set of characters.

Toys for Bob is owned by Activision Publishing. They now join Raven Software, Infinity Ward, Treyarch, High Moon Studios, Beenox, Activision Shanghai, Sledgehammer Games, and Demonware working on the Call of Duty franchise.

Roblox Game Adopt Me Is Launching An Easter Update, Weeks After Easter

Adopt Me, the cute animal game based in the Roblox platform, is getting an Easter-themed event–a few weeks after Easter. The update adds a new ultra-rare lamb pet, available now through May 13.

The timing isn’t a mistake, though. According to Entertainment Focus, Roblox Corp chose to release this update later in the month so as to avoid conflicting with a separate Ocean Eggs patch.

Aside from the little lamb, the update includes new accessories for your pets, avatar, and house. Those include egg-shaped sunglasses, a bunny ear crown, baby chick backpack, and a chick hat. You can take part in an Easter egg hunt to earn currency for purchasing the new accessories, and you can get a look at some of them in a trailer for the update.

Adopt Me is one of the more popular offshoots from Roblox, which functions as both a game and a creation platform. Roblox Corp, the parent company formed around the breakout hit, recently went public on the US stock exchange. It doesn’t appear to be profitable in itself yet, but the company says it is confident about its long-term prospects, especially given its success on mobile.

Warzone pros are not happy with teased CR-56 AMAX nerf

The most recent Warzone patch notes from Raven Software teased an upcoming nerf to the CR-56 AMAX Assault rifle, and top-tier players in the community were not happy to hear that the powerful weapon could soon be less effective.

Weapon balance has always been a major discussion point in the Warzone community, as there have been multiple weapons that have been much better than their counterparts and were the staple in loadouts such as the AUG, FFAR, Grau, Bruen, and more.

The CR-56 AMAX has always been an effective Assault Rifle no matter the meta in Warzone and has not seen any significant changes to its performance since it was added to the Call of Duty battle royale. However, a recent update from developer Raven Software has teased upcoming changes to the CR-56 AMAX, which has not sit well with some players.

CR-56 AMAX Warzone Nerf

Warzone CR-56 AMAX Nerf

In the patch notes for the April 28, 2021 update for Warzone, Raven Software gave the community a sneak peek that there will be upcoming balance changes to the CR-56 AMAX, Fara 83, and Bullfrog.

The reveal that upcoming changes would be coming to these weapons, especially the CR-56 AMAX, shocked plenty of players, as the high recoil of the CR-56 AMAX made it a higher-skilled weapon in most players’ eyes and not worthy of a nerf in any regard.

NRG JoeWo is known for his prowess with this Modern Warfare Assault Rifle, as he has gathered plenty of highlight clips of it over the game’s life, and he had a simple message for Raven Software regarding the teased nerf.

Jukeyz of the London Royal Ravens stated that he doesn’t understand how they can nerf the Assault Rifle when some players can not even control its recoil.

Considering most nerfs are applied to weapons that are overpowered and give lower-skilled players a greater boost than every other weapon in the game, it does seem fairly unusual that Raven would want to nerf the AMAX.

Jukeyz states that he believes the CR-56 AMAX is the most balanced weapon Warzone has ever had.

It remains to be seen what exactly this teased nerf from Raven Software will be for the popular Modern Warfare Assault Rifle, but there is no doubt that the community will have strong opinions regarding what the changes turn out to be.
