Strategy Aug 15, 2022

In this blog, we will be getting to know how surviving, and trying to match your skill set with you squad will be helping you to get a better K/D in Free Fire.

If you have been playing Free Fire for quite some time, and you are interested in ranking up quickly, even getting to increase your K/D ratio, or even thinking about increasing your XPs, then there is a certain way to go about it. If you are new to the game, then, of course, it will be quite difficult for you to understand how to go about these things. In today’s blog, we will walk you through the concept of the K/D Ratio in Free Fire and also ways you can improve the ratio!

What is the K/D ratio in Free Fire?

For those who are completely new to the world of FPS games and such, let us understand the concept of the K/D Ratio. K/D means Kill Death Ratio, which means in a match, how many kills you have got, and how many times you died. This ratio is quite important in the sense that you need to know how good a player is. The better the ratio, the better the player in the game. Now you might be wondering how the ratio gets better. Well, there is nothing much to it. You have to maintain your kill numbers, death numbers, and the number of assists you are giving. If they are all well balanced or proportioned, then you will get a better K/D Ratio in Free Fire.

How to get a better K/D ratio in Free Fire?

Without wasting much time, let us get into how a player can get a better K/D Ratio in Free Fire:

Try to Survive More

One of the biggest mistakes that anyone makes in the game is that they rush into fights. This causes you to die sooner. This is a big no if you are trying to increase your K/D ratio. Hence, one of the first things to keep in mind is that you have to try to survive more than just increase your kill numbers. This will help you to support your teammates better, and you can even try to take in a lot more information. All of this will ensure that you will be getting better at your gameplay and even game sense. It is also quite necessary when you are going for the higher ranks. In high ranks, your opponents will never come up and take a straight fight, they will always wait till the end to attack you with full information. That is the way the game gets better, and you will find yourself better equipped.

Five Eliminations in a Match

Just because you need to survive for the longest time, does not mean that you will not engage with your opponents. There will be times when you might have to pick a fight, or you will You are coming to a choice where you can either go for it, or you might even escape. You need to think about it carefully. There could be a high chance that the enemy could not be well packed or fitted with many resources. Maybe they are weak enemies, and it is better to eliminate them before they collect ammo, and fight back. The bottom line to all of this is that you need to engage with the enemies only when you are 100% sure that you will be able to win the fight. This means that you need to have information on the enemies, or you are outnumbering them at the moment. Sometimes it will be necessary for you to make that decision, as you will need to have a proper kill count for the ratio too.

Just remember, that to maintain a perfect k/D ratio, you need to have at least 5 eliminations in a match. So, fight accordingly.

If the enemies attack…

Another important thing to keep in mind is what to do if your enemies are attacking you. So far, we are sure that you are quite clear about the fact that you are to play as much defensive as possible, to have a good K/D ratio. Well, now that the enemies have decided that they are going to attack you, the best possible way is to analyse the situation. If you feel that you have enough resources and only one person is attacking you, then you can take up a fight. However, if you see that more than one enemy is coming toward you or attacking you, the best option is to escape. Do not engage in a fight until your other teammates come to help you out, or you are far from them. Your prime motive should be to pick up smart fights, not unnecessary ones.

Skill-Gap in a Squad

This is another thing that you have got to avoid. Imagine you are playing with your friends, but all your friends have a wide gap in their skill sets or have a wide difference in their ranks. This could affect your K/D ratio quite badly. You have to make sure that you are getting into the same skill set so that you get equal enemies. If you are in a lower skill group, even if you manage to get a lot of kills, you won’t be rewarded with a higher K/D, your ratio might even drop down. Hence, make sure to keep this in mind before getting on with your squad.


A booyah is necessary for getting a good K/D ratio.

Of course, getting a win in the match means a better K/D. But that does not mean you get nothing when you lose. You will be awarded a good K/D if you play well, and still, lose. However, if you play well, maintain your K/D and get a Booyah in the match, your ratio and points will increase. This gives you a boost in your ranks and levels.


These were some of the ways through which you can get a better K/D ratio throughout the game. However, make sure to always play with your time, and have a good time. That is all that matters in a game, more than anything else.
