In the esports gaming industry, OP is a short form for Overpowered, which describes an unbeatable character or player. Also, OP usually stands for “original poster” or “original post” on a social media network.
We can say that a character, weapon, or skill is OP, meaning they are so strong that it gives the player on one-sided advantage over others. So, it’s overpowered because it beats anything else in the game.
For example, in 2018, Fortnite game players get access to a new weapon which is called the infinity Blade. And this sword was so powerful than any other weapon that any player who hold it was an immediate winner. Thus, mostly every player agreed that the infinity Blade was OP (Overpowered). However, the Fortnite gaming developers quickly removed the Infinity Blade from the game.
The OP related with several other gaming terms:
- Something that is OP can also be called “broken,” because it is so powerful that it seems to break the game.
- If something is overpowered, players will frequently request that it be “nerfed,” or that the weapon or skill be weakened.
- On the other hand, if something is too underpowered, players can ask for a “buff”. They want it to be stronger. Too many enthusiasts can make an item OP.
Regular “nerfs” and “buffs” keep games balanced and interesting, preventing any one weapon or character from becoming overpowered. “The major update bugged Doomguy so he is no longer OP,” meaning that the game’s most recent update made Doomguy’s character less powerful, to the point that he is no longer overpowered.
