Mercenary Team Deathmatch or Mercenary TDM is a game mode featured only in the console versions of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Call of Duty: World at War, and in both PC and console versions of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. This game mode is exactly the same as Team Deathmatch, but is unique in the fact that the player can't enter it in a party and that teams are randomized. This allows the players, who do not like games with people talking too much or don't enjoy large amounts of people of a higher skill in one party, to be satisfied. It appeared first in the Beta testing phase of Call of Duty 4 under the name of "Pick up Team Deathmatch", and was added in the first patch to the retail console versions. It is popular with newer Call of Duty players. It can also be considered the boot camp of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare as experienced players used to usually avoid this game mode (however this is becoming less and less frequent as more and more glitched and hacked playlists occur in the other modes), and newer players usually play in this game mode for less one-sided matches. It is also helpful for players who do not like playing with "boosters", or players who let other players kill them for points or headshots.

Mercenary Team Deathmatch was removed from Call of Duty: Black Ops on March 1, 2011, being replaced by Mercenary Moshpit. The reasons for this are unknown, however it may have been to prevent high ranked/skilled players from joining the game mode and completely dominating the lower ranked/skilled players, which was a common sight since the release of the map pack, which segregated the players with and without it, those without the map pack would generally be new to the game. The game mode was readded into the game later.
