What is TDM in Apex Legends?

Apex Legends TDM modeRespawn Entertainment

TDM (Team Deathmatch) is a fast-paced 6v6 match in which the sole aim is to get 30 kills, thus winning the round. Win two rounds and your team will win the game.

During the battle, your team of three will join another full squad, making six. You will then have to eliminate the enemy team. If you are killed, there is six-second respawn delay before you will instantly respawn with your loadout and gear again. You can also check on your kills and damage dealt through the scoreboard.

As for weaponry, you can select from a range of powerful premade loadouts, just like in Control mode, and you are able to change them out during the match, especially with some helpful care package drops that fall throughout the map.

If you’re excited to try out the new Team Deathmatch mode, the style will be in its own Limited Time Mode (LTM) for three weeks, and will then be placed in rotation in the mixtape playlist.
