An online gamer
who enjoys talking smack
over the headset
in an attempt to belittle or intimidate other users. Unfortunately the gamer
in question is most often unable (or unwilling) to "back-up" their words with potential action and is therefore referred to as a "Headset Hero"
In other words: The "Headset Hero" is a gamer who will talk like a tough guy
on the headset
when his anonymous
words will likely lead to no repercussion
s; however in person they are likely the opposite of the persona
The defined gamer is often easily identified by their prepubescent
voice or lack of verbal skills
Gamer 1 - "I could kick your ass...your such a pussy...you stupid mother...etc, etc. etc."
Gamer 2 - "What a fucking Headset Hero...shut the fuck up man!"
