Gank is a slang word used in Australia, New Zealand and the UK which means to steal.

Although it has been used in this way for many decades, and still is, in recent years it has also been used as an abbreviation of 'gang kill' in MMORPG's.

Gank = Steal

Ganking = Stealing

Ganked = Stole

In MMORPG's - Gang kill. To attack someone using overwhelming odds against them.
The bitch ganked my lighter.

This pokie (poker machine) keeps ganking my money.

Can i gank a couple of smokes?

IN MMORPG's - Let's be cowardly bitches and gank this guy.
