What does pwn3d mean in online gaming?


Pwn3d means "owned" or "dominated." You're most likely to encounter this term in online gaming chat, sent by an opponent who killed, defeated, or otherwise wrecked you.

For example, if the opposing team ganks you in League of Legends (LoL), they may enter "pwn3d" in chat directly afterward. This is their way of rubbing salt in your virtual wound.

Pwn3d is a leetspeak expansion of pwn, a common verb used among gamers. You may also see pwn3d spelled as pwned, which swaps the leetspeak "3d" for a more traditional "ed."
