Tech Term
Deathmatch, Frag and Respawn
by rob

Deathmatch
A game-type in first-person shooters where players are pitted against other players. The player with the most frags in a set amount of time or the player that reaches a set amount of frags first is the winner.

Frag
A term used in a deathmatch game. The goal in deathmatches is to kill (or "frag") the other player to accumulate points. Frags are taken away when a player dies or commits suicide. Frag replaces more permanent terms like "kill" because after a player is fragged, they come back into the game, or respawn.

Respawn
The action of a player being re-incarnated in a deathmatch. This happens at the beginning of the match and after being fragged.
