Having gone through several topics, it reminded me of the jargon and slang we used back in the good ol' days. The wiki I found about PS jargon didn't include most of the jargon, so I made a little list of most of the PS terminology, but I feel I'm missing out on some... anyone?

Also, I know it is going to take me awhile to call Heavy Assault by its proper name. I'm just going to say "Rexo" for awhile (REinforced eXO-suit for new comers).

Well, that is what they're wearing, so I'll always be saying Rexo. Easier to say and we all know what we're talking about.

Ghost = Infiltrator
GG = Galaxy Gunship
Farming = making lots of kills easily
Gen = base generator

While you were farmed by the GG a ghost sneaked into the gen.

I'd always heard Backhack to, more specifically, mean attacking a rear-line base, defenders or no. Often done by the 3rd empire not already involved in a cont battle.

"WTF, NC backhack? There goes the cont."
---
And while we're at it. Cont: Continent, later turned into planets. Still called conts.
---
Lesser used: Circle Jerk: When all 3 empire are stuck on the same cont, making no progress for hours or days. Threeway meets stalemate.

"How's Cyssor going?"
"Circle Jerk, hour 36."
---
Libby: Liberator bomber
---
Caver: Players who spent the bulk of their play time in caves.
---
McGun: TR Heavy Assult Mini-Chaingun

I don't know if anyone will actually remember this, but since PS2 has a flamethrower this time around, is anyone going to call it the Jawa?

Why would you call a flamethrower a Jawa? Jawas usually use blasters or ion weapons...
