SPM is the only thing that matters as a measurement of skill.

I would say SPM is a pure measure of skill. No single statistic is a pure measure of skill. A high KD with a low(er) SPM usually means they camp. A high SPM with a low(er) KD usually means they focus on the objective.

With that said, I care more about SPM than KD. It's rare for me to be lower than second on the lobby leaderboard. My SPM in kill confirmed ranks around 200000.

In kill-based games, SPM doesn't mean very much.

SPM is just as easy to manipulate as any other stat in the game.

The only kill based game there is is DM, right?

5-1=awesome kdr

25-19= not so awesome kdr

Which is the better DM player here?

Probably requires you to be more active/at risk than padding K/D though.

How does one "manipulate" SPM?

If you have a high score per minute, you are doing something right.

Well, that and boosting is out of normal means.

Aside from that, there is nothing you can really do to fake your SPM.
It is proportional to you performance in game.

Depends on gamemode.


in what gamemode does SPM take a backseat to kdr?


Search, FFA, team death match. I would say K/D is more important in those modes. And search just absolutely tanks SPM. Other modes I would say SPM is way more important.
