Communication: The Roblox Language


Every game has different terms and slangs. Since Roblox is such a popular and in-demand game, we’ll take a look at the most common words and their meanings for the benefit of the novices.



Word Meaning
Admin A staff member of the game Roblox
Afk Away from keyboard (the player is away from the keyboard probably because he needs to get food or a bathroom break)
Blox To kill a player in a game
Bloxxed When the health of a player reaches zero, and the Robloxian falls apart
Brick A 2×4 plastic piece
Brick Battle A duel using Roblox’s classic weapon tools
Builders Club Roblox Update that offers more advantages
Catalog The area where players navigate to and where avatars and places are sold.
Gtg or g2g Got to go (used when the player needs to leave the game for some reason)
Leet Speak Way of communicating which was first used by hackers but today used by trolls in forums. This refers to the substitution of numbers to letters, wrong spelling, capitalization of random letters, and more. For instance, noob is spelled as n00b, LOL is spelled as L0l, Plox is spelled as Pl0x, m8 stands for mate, donate is spelled as don8, and so on.

Those who use this way of communication are called leetspeakers

LOL Laugh out loud
Newb/Noob A beginner/novice of the game (Note that the term is usually used as an insult)
OMG Oh my God
Owned This means a player has been defeated
Place A Roblox game or a player’s creation
Plox or Plz Please
Pwned The same as owned, but is used for situations where stronger force was utilized
Robloxian A player’s character in the game
ROFL Rolling on the floor laughing – This is used for situations where LOL doesn’t suffice
TL;DR Too long; didn’t read – Used in Roblox Forums when a post is deemed too long to read
TS;DR Too short; didn’t read – Used also in Roblox Forums when a post is too short that more words or explanation should be added
