A deathmatch in GTA Online.

Deathmatch is a Job type in Grand Theft Auto Online.


Deathmatches return in GTA Online, the multiplayer of Grand Theft Auto V, with three different types of match available, Standard, Team and Vehicle deathmatches, although any deathmatch map can be played as a standard deathmatch or as a team deathmatch, despite Rockstar labeling them differently in the menu and in free-roam. Up to 16 players can play in a Deathmatch. Deathmatches can be created using the Content Creator.

An attritional (no re-spawning) variation on the deathmatch game is also available, called Last Team Standing.

The jobs are accessed from Free Mode by either walking into their corona or selecting them from the Pause Menu where thay can be activated from the map or the Online Jobs list or from post-job voting menus.


Matches are scored on number of kills only. Money is no longer used as a scoring method. 


The match host can set a number of variables when starting the job
  • Match Type: Standard or Team Deathmatch
  • Number of Teams: 2, 3 or 4 where the map supports this variable
  • Time Limit: 5, 10, 15, 20, 30, 45, 60 minutes
  • Target Score: Off (unlimited), 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100, 110, 120, 130, 140 or 150 (Number of kills for the win, if set to Off, the match will play until the set time limit)
  • Online IDs: On/Off (HUD display option)*
  • Opponent Healthbar: On/Off (HUD display option)*
  • Time of Day: Current, Morning, Noon, Night
  • Weather: Current, Clear, Raining

  • Lock Weapons: Forced + Pickups, Forced only, Owned + Pickups

Variables marked "*" as removed variables.


The map will usually have re-spawning weapons available to be picked up and there may also be a forced weapon that all players start with. If the host elects to, players can bring in their own unlocked and equipped weapons from Free Mode.
