Alternatively referred to as a n00b, noob, nooblet, nub, or tyro, a newbie is slang used to describe an individual who is new to something, such as computers or a computer game. Often when a player calls another player a "noob," they're putting that person down as someone who doesn't know what they're doing and has no skill.
