Play Test Server : PTS The server that new builds get publicly tested on.

LAG – Slang for latency, when your ping is high, or just when it goes higher than normal.

Hitscan – Weapons that just plot where it was fired from and where it’s going to hit, it gets there as soon as the server registers that you fired it, as opposed to range weapons like the rocket launcher where the projectile travels from point a to point b and it takes time.

Ping – Networking term for timing how long it takes a packet to it’s destination and back again, like a submarines radar ping. This is shown by your name on the scoreboard. Lower is better, it makes the game smoother and aiming easier without having to lead shots.
