What Does KDR Mean in a Text?

KDR means Kill-to-Death Ratio in an online gaming context.

Expressed in a format like 6:1 or 2:1, the "Kill-to-Death Ratio" highlights how many enemies, on average, a player kills before being killed. Many players focus heavily on their KDR, believing a true indicator of their skills.
