There appear to be some names for in-game multi kills. "Double Kill" and "Triple Kill" are self explanatory. Can somebody explain what are the numbers behind others, namely: "Ultra Kill" and "Rampage"? Also, I'm not really sure but there appear to be also names for killstreaks. In particular, "Godlike" is supposedly a name for a killstreak (again, I'm not sure how many kills you need to get this) rather than just another multi-kill name. Can somebody provide a comprehensive list here or at least pointer to such one?

Number of kills in a short time span (multi-kills):

  • Double kill - 2 kills
  • Triple kill - 3 kills
  • Ultra kill - 4 kills
  • Rampage - 5 kills and above

Number of kills without dying (streaks):

  • Killing Spree - 3 kills
  • Dominating - 4 kills
  • Mega Kill - 5 kills
  • Unstoppable - 6 kills
  • Wicked Sick - 7 kills
  • Monster kill - 8 kills
  • Godlike - 9 kills
  • Beyond Godlike - 10 kills and above

    • For all the streaks, the announcer says what the banner reads. But for Beyond Godlike, the announcer says, "Holy Shit!", but the banner reads 'Beyond Godlike'.
    • For Monster Kill, the announcer actually says 'Ma-Ma-Ma-Monster Kill'.


  • Ownage - 5 or more kills in a row by one team without them losing any heroes.

The origin of this style of naming kill-streaks comes from Unreal Tournament.

  • I would add the "Ownage!" sound to the list, too! It triggers when a team kills more than 5 enemy heroes in a row without losing any (even if not in the same teamfight).

    @MarioStoilov Nope, it's correct as is. The sound clips can sound mixed as typically a number of kills in a short span will also increase your kill streak.

    @turbo Well in Unreal Tournament (were the original announcer is from) they were like that. Must have changed them in dota... May 12, 2014 at 14:01

    If I'm not mistaken, the "short time span" is a maximum of around 18 seconds between kills to maintain the streak. May 12, 2014 at 18:55
