Deathmatch (DM) and its team-based version Team Deathmatch (TDM) are popular multiplayer gametypes in many different games. Red Faction, Red Faction II, and Red Faction: Guerrilla have all contained both gametypes in some form.
At it's most basic level, Deathmatch is about killing your opponent more times than they kill you. The only notable difference between Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch is the inclusion of teams. Players are normally split evenly into two teams on a normal Deathmatch map, and scores are kept for the team as a whole, rather than for each individual player. Suicide deaths do not normally impact a team's score in Team Deathmatch, even though they often impact a specific player's score in Deathmatch.
