F2P has 2 meanings
1. What does F2P stand for?


F2P stands for "free-to-play." Free-to-play video games allow players to play free of charge but offer optional in-game purchases that enhance the games' gameplay.

For example, Roblox is a popular online game platform that allows players to play dozens of different types of games. While Roblox is F2P, players can use real money to buy Robux, Roblox's in-game currency. Players can then spend their Robux on cosmetic items (such as skins and accessories), enhanced abilities (such as the ability to jump higher or run faster), and access to VIP servers. None of these paid features are essential to enjoying Roblox, but many players enjoy the game so much that they are willing to pay for "bonus" features.

Most F2P games are truly free-to-play, allowing players to play and progress through them without spending any money. Some malicious game developers and companies, however, create "F2P" games that are nearly impossible to progress through without making many in-game purchases. These sorts of predatory F2P games are labelled "pay-to-win."

2. What does F2P stand for?

Free to play

A gamer who is asking whether you're F2P wants to know whether you are "free to play." That is, are you available to play a game right now (or at some other designated time).

In recent years, F2P has more commonly been used to label "free-to-play" video games that don't require a purchase to play. For that reason, this version of F2P is used less often than it once was. However, you might still encounter it while chatting with an old-school gamer.
