40.
A term used in online discourse to belittle and bully others. Often an expression of impatience with a game-player who might seem less than proficient, but also just a handy insult for those without the vocabulary, manners, humour, tolerance or spelling that their mums hoped they'd have by that age.
A: Oh, bother. We lost the game, possibly because of an error on the part of player B. My life extends not much further than the online game world, so obviously I'm miffed. How shall I express my frustration? With a cheerful and sporting, "We'll get 'em next time" or "Don't feel too bad"? Nah! Hey, player B: "n00b!" That told him.

n.

1) A person who is new to a game
2) A person who, regardless of experience, lacks the skill or copmetence to be competitive in a certain game
3) Someone who tends to whine or complain when being beaten at a game - often done by accussing more skilled opponents of hacking
4) One who may talk trash, claiming to be elite at a game, only to be beaten down by a better player, or will turn down any games when challenged by better players.


v.

1) To act or behave in the way that a n00b would
2) Behaving as if lacking experience, skill or knowledge


NOTE: Can be used with a number of connotations. Often is used mockingly or in a manner of jesting. Other times is used seriously, but is often considered a brainless or weak insult when used alone as a supposed malicious insult. Is generally considered rude and deragatory unless a person is displaying disregard and general apathy towards other players - in this case, skill may be a non-factor (see definitions 3 and 4).

See also n00bed, n00bie, and newbie
n.

This n00b just charges in at the enemies and gets owned in the first 10 seconds of the game.

v. Look at this guy n00bing it up - I've never seen anyone die so fast, so often.

3.
An individual that plays a particular multiplayer game less than 15 hours a day, thus causing him/her to be less skilled at that game than the person calling him/her a n00b. N00bs are usually classified as having a job, an active social life, and possibly a lover. These things are reviled in the "gamer" community, which means that n00bs are hated with a passion in thier circles. The term is usually used in Counterstrike servers and Battle.net, where many mouthbreathing "elite gamers" and internet tough-guys can be found.
Normal player: hey, how do I beat (x) if I'm using (y)?
"Elite" gamer: lololol ur a n00b u suk lolol pwned get sum skilz nub fag
Normal player: Uhhh....what?

6.
The derogatory word used to label someone who is new to a particular game/forum/server/where-ever. Many people misuse the word, insulting new members by calling them 'n00b's.

The word 'newb' is sometimes confused with this term - 'newb' standing for 'new beginner'. Whereas a n00b means one of two common terms.

1) A new member who is acting stupidly.
2) A member who is acting stupidly, regardless of level and/or experience.
1) "Lol, u level 1 n00b stfu pwned."
2) "Wow, that guy's been here for 4 years and he still acts like a n00b."

7.
A player who may or may not be new to a game, but insists on doing brainless things, especially things that hinder the team. Those who are defined as "n00bs" will also refuse to listen to words of wisdom or, even worse, berate those who try to help.
