    First go to Multiplayer, then Join Game and then check if the options are correct (you want Deatmatch so the gametype option should be set to Deathmatch). And then click Search, this opens the Server browser which is basically a list of other computers (servers) that are hosting an online game.

    So now you'll see a list of servers that you can play on but let's first find one that has a few players in it (just check under the Players column to see the number of players in a server) and also check the Ping of a server. That's a number which indicates the time it takes to communicate with that server (in milliseconds). This number should be as low as possible because otherwise you'll experience lag (in that case, it takes too much time to communicate with that server so shots will be delayed etc).

    To join a server, just double click on it in the server browser. If all goes well, the game connects to that server and you're basically in an online server with a few other players
