GG – Good game


KDR – Kill Death Ratio. This is a ratio that compares your kills and deaths in a game and displays a ratio for the player to view. The higher the ratio number, the better it is. (more kills, less deaths).

Nerf – This relates to weakening something in-game. Whether it be a specific gun or special power up you would say something like: “The gun is OP ffs! Nerf this shit developers”
