A spawn in an fps game that puts the player significantly out of action.

The origins for this term date back to the Halo2 map Relic (available as part of the "Maptacular Pack" downloadable content). If a member of the defending team died during a flag game while the offensive team was in their base the defender could get spawned on the beach. This spawn placed them so far away they could not adequately defend the flag capture.
Man I just got shorespawned. I can't make it back to the flag in time. This game sucks.
