A player in an online multiplayer game whose goal is to be as absolutely obnoxious to other players, typically for teh lulz
. This is traditionally actions such as team killing
, team wounding
, and spawn camping
. Note that it is a misconception among a large part of the internet
(particularly care bear
, and nublets
) that complaining to or about a griefer will deter them. In fact it is the opposite; this is the ultimate confirmation that they are annoying other players.
