Evolving from the word New-byers, meaning new passing byers in town, this changed to newbie, the shortened form of this is newb.

A newb is a word used over the internet many times, usually meaning new to a subject/topic, usually a game.

A noob was evolved through the uneducated side of games played by usually children, runescape for example, where children didn't know the exact spelling of newb and changed it to noob.

Newb and noob shouldn't be confused however, newb is a new person to a game but wants to become better and be like the higher levels in a game. A noob is a new player who tends to be aggrovating and will usually spam, beg, or find any other way to annoy other players.

As not many people like those kind (noobs), the term has become something over the internet to become offensive.

A dumb-ass expression used by COD players to show their superiority over people who are not virgins
COD player: "I cant believe I just killed u ur such a NEWB"
Regular Human Being: "Whats that? I couldn't hear you over the sound of my dick getting sucked!!"
COD player: "Whats that? I couldnt hear you over me masterbating, alone!"
Regular Human Being: "Youre a Fucking idiot"
