Team deathmatch is a custom match game variant. Unlike traditional Awesomenauts gameplay, the Solar Drill inside the enemy base is not the objective. Instead, the players have to kill a number of enemy awesomenauts until the frag limit is reached.

As with other custom matches, Team deathmatch's settings can be tweaked to the host's liking. Options include altering the starting amount of Solar, removing turrets and adding energy walls in order to reduce the size of the arena.
