Deathmatch Mode Explained
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 20 points before anyone else does, or the time runs out. Unlike other game modes, Deathmatch has no teams. 8 players in the match compete against each other.
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 you need to be in top 4.
Maps In Rotation
Maps in first competitive deathmatch season will be Château Guillard and Petra.
Start & End Date
First season starts on May 22nd, with the Overwatch’s second anniversary, and ends on June 11th, 2018.
How Does 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. Your hidden matchmaking-rating is taken from the normal competitive mode.
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 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.
Bronze – 40 CP
Silver – 75 CP
Gold – 150 CP
Platinum – 300 CP
Diamond – 450 CP
Master – 750 CP
Grandmaster – 1000 CP
You will also receive a spray and a player icon for participating. For the best of the best, there’s a Top 500 ladder that will reward you a Top 500 spray and a player icon.
