The term newbie describes an individual who is new to something. Often, it describes someone new to a computer game. When a player calls another player a "noob," they're insulting the new player due to making mistakes, or a low level of skill.


A newbie may also be called newb, n00b, noob, nooblet, nub, or tyro.
