What does FTK stand for in online gaming?

For the kill

Gamers use FTK to mean "for the kill." When you see this acronym in in-game chat, it means a player is moving in to kill one or more enemies.

For example, in a MOBA, a player might send "going FTK, could use backup" when they're about to charge an opposing champion. Or, in an FPS, a player might say "let's go FTK on that sniper" when they want you to help them frag an opposing sniper.
