The Unusual Words in The Greatest MMORPG

Roblox isn’t exempted from weird things, and the fact that leet speakers exist is already a proof.

Just like in other games, Roblox also has slangs of its own that are odd and usually not used in the real world.

Here’s the list of unusual words you’ll definitely encounter when you play Roblox.


Word Meaning
1 ! (leet speakers use the symbol for number one to substitute for the exclamation point)
1337 Eleet (possibly a combination of the words elite and leet—the real meaning of eleet is unknown)
Afk Away from keyboard (the player is away from the keyboard probably because he needs to get food or a bathroom break)
Blox To kill a player in a game
Bloxxed When the health of a player reaches zero and the Robloxian falls apart
Brb Be Right Back – Means the player will stop playing for a while and will be back after taking a break
Don8 Stands for donate, this means to give someone robux (the game’s virtual currency) or an item.
Gtg or g2g Got to go (used when the player needs to leave the game for some reason)
Leet Speak (l337 sp34k) Way of communicating which was first used by hackers but today used by trolls in forums. This refers to the substitution of numbers to letters, wrong spelling, capitalization of random letters, and more. For instance, noob is spelled as n00b, LOL is spelled as L0l, Plox is spelled as Pl0x, m8 stands for mate, donate is spelled as don8, and so on.

Those who use this way of communication are called leet speakers.

LOL Laugh out loud
Noob/Newb/n00b A beginner / novice of the game (Note that the term is usually used as an insult)
OMG Oh my God – Used to express shock
Owned This means a player has been defeated
Plox or Plz Please
Pwned The same as owned, but is used for situations where stronger force was utilized
ROFL Rolling on the floor laughing – This is used for situations where LOL doesn’t suffice
TL;DR Too long; didn’t read – Used in Roblox Forums when a post is deemed too long to read
TS;DR Too short; didn’t read – Used also in Roblox Forums when a post is too short that more words or explanation should be added
