Team Deathmatch Mode Tips

Overwatch's Deathmatch mode is an arcade mode that's being launched as competitive for the first time in Overwatch's history. Below, we'll explain everything you need to know about season 1 of competitive deathmatch.

There is only one goal in Deathmatch, to reach 30 points before anyone else does, or the time runs out. Unlike normal ranked, Team Deathmatch consists of two teams with 4 players in each team. 1 kill awards you 1 point, and dying does not set back your score unless you suicide, then you lose a point. Minimum points you can have is 0. In order to win your team needs to get 30 points before the other team. Don't worry, you can queue up alone or in stacks and the game will find you a team.

You can stack up and queue up with players of within 1000 skill rating for 1-3500 SR, within 500 SR for 3500-4000 and within 350 SR for 4000 or higher. The Skill Rating is taken from your normal ranked SR. When you die, you will respawn somewhat close to your team but can be random on the map, away from enemies, this allows the winning team to snowball on the rest of your team, therefore try to gather up ASAP.

What Are The Best Heroes in Team Deathmatch?

Maps In Rotation

Start & End Date

Season 1 starts on 29th October, just when the Season 12 of regular comp ended, and ends on November 19th, 2018.

How Does Team DM Competitive Play Work?

You will start the season with 10 placement games that need to be completed just like in normal ranked mode and you will be placed somewhere in 1-5000. Nobody knows for sure how much does your normal ranked SR/MMR influence your team deathmatch placement outcome.

The mode also features a Top 500 ladder, end of season rewards in forms of sprays and Competitive Points rewards that stack with the CP rewards you get from the normal competitive mode, meaning, that's twice the amount of CP you can now get to purchase your sweet Golden weapons!

Make sure not to forget about the 6000 CP cap, ergo, if you save 6000 CPs, you will not receive more CPs for winning games, but you will still receive the end of season competitive points.
