Killtastic

adjective; blending and clipping
1. a kill marked by extravagance or notable skill/peculiarity 2. numerous kills marked by notability of their number The word probably means to be marked by extravagant killings (i.e. fantastic kill or kills), either in number or in quality. KILL is the root marked by its usual dictionary definition, and the suffix – TASTIC is probably derived from “FANTASTIC”, which means excellent or marked by extravagant fantasy. KILLTASTIC is clearly a blend of the two words, to mean “fantastic kill as either “EXCELLENT KILL” or “characteristic of many kills (extravagant number of killings).” A very colourful way of describing a particularly notable kill or notable number of kills. Rather humorous and playful way of saying “FANTASTIC” in reference to a kill in the game. Models probably include another neologism that is becoming common, “CRAPTASTIC” which is generally used to mean “marked by a significant amount of crappiness” and “FANTASTIC” which means “marked by extravagant fantasy.”
