Question about Kills indicator on score screen in game

#1 Posted by Nexrad (441 posts) -

I notice when playing that the number next to the points number should obviously be kills right? So i always check the after game score screen to review stats but i find that almost every time the kills on the end game score screen are different than the number it shows while i am in the game. I thought well maybe it was just not including suicides or something but that cant be because its said at the end of a game ive had 17 kills and when i check the kills in the lobby it will show like 21 kills and theres no way i killed myself 4 times.

 

i know this sounds like a noob question but ive just been confused on why the two are so different does anyone know why this is?
