Newb : Let's play on my switch.
Noob : Nah, man. Fuck nintendo. You're such a newb.

Get the newb mug.
Someone who is new to the activity that they are currently partaking in. Very often this term is used pertaining to computer games. Contrary to popular belief, a newb and a n00b are not the same thing, as a newb can and will get better where as a n00b will partake in activites meant mainly to aggrivate other players.

newbs deserve a chance to grow and become better.
As a noun.
"You jump with the space bar, don't be such a newb"
"Obviously, this item is better... newb."
"Since your just a newb, i'll help you out."

Pro: Google translate, be there when I need you..... No noobish language? I told you....

sometimes spelt newbie, A newb is a player new to a game. Inexperienced and occassionally frustratingly so. However, due to them being a newb, they should be treated with patience because everyone was new once. Very different to a n00b, who desire to create problems for all other players
Player 1: "Hey, I'm a newb and I'm a bit lost can you show me how to change weapons?"
Player 2: "No problem, you do this...."
