Newbie, or "noob", is a slang term for a novice or newcomer to a certain game, or to gaming in general.

It can have derogatory connotations, but is also often used for descriptive purposes only, without a value judgment.

Two derived terms are:

    • "newb", a beginner who is willing to learn and
    • "noob", a derogatory name (an alternate spelling for n00b).
