|Deathmatch start data|
|Thing type||11 (decimal), B (hex)|
|Appears in||Shareware Doom|
Doom II/Final Doom
|Sprite||none (but see Player)|
Normally, there is more than one such position on a level. One of them is chosen at random each time a player starts or respawns. A respawned player will telefrag any player or monster who happens to be standing on that deathmatch start.
Multiplayer mode allows up to four players, so a level needs at least four deathmatch starts in order to be used for deathmatch games. MAP28: The Spirit World, for example, has only two, and therefore cannot be played in deathmatch mode.
