In Halo 5, there is a stat called KDA. I was figuring that it stood for Kill Dealth Average, but my stats are as follows:

enter image description here

Obviously 69 kills / 67 dealths do not equal 2.0. What is KDA and how is the math calculated?


You're close. KDA stands for "Kills, Deaths, Assists".

In most games it's simply (kills+assists)/deaths, but for Halo, it appears to be


In your case: (69+(36/3)-67)/7==2

  • 3
    Which would make that number the average surplus of kills (and assists counting for one third of a kill) you get compared to your deaths? 0 would then be equal to a (classic) KD of 1? – Flater Oct 29 '15 at 14:58
  • Are you sure its usually (K+A)/D? I dont have any references but I from what I remmeber assists usually get a divisor because you dont need to do as much to earn it. – David says Reinstate Monica Oct 30 '15 at 0:43
  • @DavidGrinberg I'm just going off my experience. There isn't really a hard and fast rule for how assists count. – John the Green Oct 30 '15 at 18:16
  • @Flater I believe that is correct, yes. – John the Green Nov 1 '15 at 18:23
