adjective; clipping
Being close to death in a video game.
This adjective was coined in the Halo competitive scene to describe when opponents and allies were vulnerable. It is probably a shortening of the phrase, “absolutely dead”, when would’ve been used as a hyperbolic statement that someone was going to die.
Etymology : identical to the etymology for “absolute”.
