Will Team Deathmatch Be Added to XDefiant?

What kind of shooter doesn't have Team Deathmatch?

The more I play XDefiant, the more I realize that it’s far from being as competitive as CS or CoD. With so many different modes, newer players find it hard to adjust to playing the objectives and controlling the map. However, one mode is missing and doesn’t require map knowledge at all: TDM. So, when will Team Deathmatch be added to XDefiant? Here is what we know so far.

When Will XDefiant Get Team Deathmatch?

The last time we got information on the new game modes was in 2023 when Ubisoft published its year 1 XDefiant roadmap. Since then, they’ve been completely ambiguous on what game modes they’ll add and when. So, it’s safe to say for now that XDefiant will not get Team Deathmatch for at least a few months, if not a whole year.

However, developers often adjust their plans based on community feedback, so we can’t completely write out TDM. For now, the only thing we players can do is spam their Discord suggestions channel with Team Deathmatch requests. Hopefully, they will take note of the demand and decide to add it.

Until that happens, your best option is to queue Hot Shot. It’s basically TDM but with a few extra quirks. One is collecting bounties off enemy bodies to earn score. The other is that each team’s kill leader gets buffs and is visible on the minimap. Both are hard to mess up, even if you’re new to the FPS genre.

Anyway, that’s all we can tell you right now on whether Team Deathmatch will be added to XDefiant or not.
