Abbreviations

Post by buster76 »

Hi all

Very new to the hobby and looking to expand my knowledge, I see a lot of abbreviations and names on the forum, some I know like FLO but others I dont know what they mean like grot or hammered.

Does anyone have a list of what these abbreviations / names mean for future reference.

Cheers

John

And of course this normally becomes "hedge fodder" unless you really want to recycle everything.

and if you put 'Little' in fron to that, you get the milder term used for a Nox user - when they get within 10 metres of you when you're using the Deus :g42:
