'Noob' Basically means 'new'. (Pronounce it noo-b). It's usually used on websites that has members. New members would be called 'noobs'. For example, if you have just joined Advicenators then you could be called a 'noob'.

If you don't know what it means, you are one. Nice near-circular definition, eh? :)

Last I heard it was short for 'newbie,' a British-origin slang word which is, itself, short for "new boy." The definition has evolved slightly since then, as evidenced by the other posts. Note that it's non-gender-specific now.

Its really a very mean word in the gaming world. A combination of rookie and retard if you like. Sometimes they mean it closer to one, sometimes closer to the other. Ugh I hate when people use that word... I wonder how they ever expect new people to start playing?
I dont know what game you are playing (I am a counterstrike player myself), but when someone starts throwing that word around its extra pleasurable to make an example of them hehe :)

As found on :

n00b :

A inexperienced and/or ignorant or unskilled person. Especially used in computer games.

1) A person who is new to a game
2) A person who, regardless of experience, lacks the skill or copmetence to be competitive in a certain game
3) Someone who tends to whine or complain when being beaten at a game - often done by accussing more skilled opponents of hacking
4) One who may talk trash, claiming to be elite at a game, only to be beaten down by a better player, or will turn down any games when challenged by better players.

According to, a 'noob' is a person who is new and/or inexperienced to an environment or situation, but doesn't admit it. They are someone who continually fails and does not learn from their mistakes, and repeats the process.

Whereas a 'newb' is someone who wants to get better.
