What is dmg short for in gaming?


Gamers often abbreviate "damage" as dmg. You're likely to see this abbreviation used while playing MMORPGs, MOBAs, and/or FPSes, when players discuss how much damage they can deal or how much damage they've taken.

For example, an MMORPG player might discuss how much additional dmg a new weapon can do compared to an old one. Or, a MOBA player might discuss how much dmg they can deal over time (also abbreviated as DOT) or per second (also abbreviated as DPS).
