Our Call of Duty WW2: Team Deathmatch guide contains strategy advice, tips, tricks and tactics to help you beat the competition.
Call of Duty WW2’s Team Deathmatch mode does away with multiple objectives and intricacies. Instead, it’s a back to basics experience that focuses on which team can get the most eliminations and race to 75 kills first.
As it’s a 12 vs 12 affair, things can get quite hectic and despite its simplicity, we found it to be quite a difficult mode to perform well in. You have to gain a good understanding of each map, the weapons you’re using and develop a wicked aim that seeks out those all important headshots.
If you’re new to Call of Duty or simply looking for tips to get up and running in team deathmatch, we’ve put together a number of tips and tricks down below which’ll help elevate your game. We’ll update this continuously as we get more hands on time with the game, so keep this page bookmarked for more in depth strategy advice in the future.
Head back to our main Call of Duty WW2 multiplayer guide for expert insight on every other area of the competitive game!
How does Team Deathmatch Work?
- Two teams of 12 players.
- The goal is to reach 75 kills before the opposing team.
- If you get a kill, that’s one point for your team.
- Get killed, and that’s one point to the enemy.
- Try and avoid running down long pathways or corridors which look and feel as if they’re unsafe - it probably is. Unless you’ve got a sniper rifle, we advise finding another route to the enemy.
- We recommend starting off with the Infantry class in team deathmatch as it’s a good all rounder. Begin branching out to the other divisions as you gain more confidence.
- Always pay close attention to your radar as it’s a vital source of information. Of course, avoid looking at it constantly, but develop a habit of glancing at it to see if enemies are nearby.
- We’ve found that the best way to bag yourself a bunch of kills is to find a flanking route around the enemy, rather than facing them head on. This way you’re more likely to catch multiple players off guard.
- Value your own life over taking someone else’s. Building a steady lead over the enemy is key to victory.
- If you’re dying constantly, take a breather and approach each situation with a more measured approach.
- Try and choose a weapon that’s appropriate to the map. If you’re fighting a team on a vast open expanse, a bolt action rifle will do the job nicely. Otherwise, a submachine gun or shotgun will do wonders in maps with a lot of tightknit spaces.
- It’s always worth aiming for the head when you’re engaged in a gunfight. You’ll do far more damage and reduce the time to kill tremendously.
- Don’t be afraid to swiftly pre-aim when you’re rounding corners if you think an enemy might be lurking nearby. This way you’ll be one step ahead if someone does spring out of nowhere.
- If you’ve spotted an enemy camping in a corner or small room of a building, try cooking a grenade and chucking it in their direction. Just hold the grenade button for 2-3 seconds before releasing it, and it should explode as soon as it hits the floor - they won’t escape.
- This one’s a little tricky, but try and keep an eye on the enemy spawn points. Sometimes it’ll suddenly flip and this will usually happen if your team starts getting a string of kills on the board.
That’s all we’ve got for now, but we’ll continue to update this guide with further strategy advice as we get more hands on time with Team Deathmatch. Keep this article on your radar for more tips and tricks soon!
