1 AFK and brb – meaning of terms in games
What is AFK?
AFK is short for the phrase ‘away from the keyboard’ (pronounced ‘äwai de kihbord’). This English expression means ‘away from the keyboard’. This is a sign that players will be out for a short period of time. If they are away from the keyboard, they can’t respond either.
Being AFK always means that the absence is temporary. In AFK there is always an intention to return. Most of the time, the trigger for this is just a short activity, like receiving a package.
What does brb mean?
The abbreviation brb stands for ‘be right back’ (pronounced ‘bi reit bäck’) and stands for ‘be right back’. brb has the same meaning as AFK. At brb, however, there is a promise to return soon. That is why this abbreviation is used more in chats within games.
Using the acronyms doesn’t mean you’re actually moving away from PC or console. AFK and brb only indicate that more attention is needed elsewhere.
