U can level up in zombies by your Kills and downs ratio
I dont think it all KD ratio. I have said this so many times but I have a friend with 8000 plus kills and like 200 downs, only been to round 16 and has a knife. Hasnt even played in like a week.
like the guy above me said i also know people with k/d of 25 that have shotguns, also i got knife with a k/d of 60.
maybe your k/d needed to level up decreases with revives, doors opened etc...
I've got a k/d of 106.8 and i'm still on the skull with 5 tallys and blue eyes... (and have been for about 2-3 weeks now - i've played zombies every day since release...) ...so it's def not just k/d.
Not sure if anyone has said this before, but i was in a lobby with someone who had studs around his emblem. Is that before shot guns or after? There was no gun, or knife, just a zombie head with studs going all the way round the outside of the emblem
No way is it kdr, I got a kd of 208 and still stuck on the skull with the dagger and blue eyes, I don't think it's high rounds either because I've been to 40, 42, 44, an 45.
It's a weird ranking system.. I guess we got to wait until treyarch decide to spill the beans..
I think the ranking system is based on all the leaderboard stats and not just kills. I got over 2,000 kills, 23 revives, 2 downs, 800 headshots andwent from skull, to skull with shotguns, so it's definetly not based solely around kd.
I have been stuck on skull with the knife and blue eyes for a while now, I have made it to round 49 on tranzit.
My full stats are:
Accuracy - 120% (407,504 fired 491919 hit)
Kills - 77063
Headshots - 25,402 (32%)
Downs - 507 (kdr 1.51)
Deaths - 292 (kdr 263.9)
Distance Travelled - 1,440 miles
Revives - 1,484
Perks - 853
Doors - 775
Grenade kills - 1835
Gibs - 94;616
With that K/D ratio, you should be getting your shotguns soon. What platform do you play on? I am always looking for good teammates.
do everything possible to have the best game EVER and you will rank up. It doesn't really matter about deaths and down to kill ratio, but that does help. Make sure you are the one reviving your buddies, make sure you are the one opening all the doors, make sure you are popping off plenty of heads with your kills, drink your perks!!!
Everything you do in you Zombies game will help you rank up. I've never been de-ranked once you achieve a higher rank, you'll only loose your eyes and tallies if you are not consecutive in your game play.
My friend has 50k kills, with over 1k in deaths and he is ranked skull with dual shotties, so kills to downs has NOTHING to do with it.
