Shortened from newbie. Sometimes a more derogatory term to scold others for their inexperience in any given activity.



newb (plural newbs)

  1. (Internet slang, leetspeak, sometimes pejorative) A newbie; someone that is new at a game, or has a new character.
    That guy must be a newb at this game. He has no idea how to play.
  2. (Internet slang, pejorative) when said of an experienced player, an admonishment from another experienced player that the first player has made a beginner's or careless mistake.
    You fell right into that trap - you newb!
