Unreal Tournament 2004/Terminology
The large variety of terms and vocabulary found in a typical FPS game, such as Unreal Tournament 2004 tends to confuse newbies. This section deals with all terms found in the game.
A point. Awarded for diffrent things depending on which style server you are on. For example a frag in DM (death match) would be awarded for killing anyone else. In Team DM it would be awarded for killing an opponent on the opposite team. In CTF (Capture The Flag) it would be awarded for killing a member of the opposite team or for capturing the opponents flag. Frags are the method of keeping individual scores in Unreal Tournament 2004.
When something enters the map. A player spawn, or a weapon spawn, or a vehicle spawn, etc. Where those things spawn is called a spawn point.
Killing yourself. Either by jumping into something that kills you (lava, acid, off into space), by shooting yourself or getting hit by your own weapons blast, or by typing /suicide into the console.
During the single player game, your team may challenge or be challenged by another to a battle, either for credits or a player. If you reject a challenge you have to pay a fee.
Team A pays to challenge Team B for the ownership of a Team B member. If Team A wins they get that member.
Team A challenges the leader of Team B to a one-on-one deathmatch. Each team pays a wager and the winning team gets both.

Killing by shooting someone in the head, with either the Lightning Gun or Sniper Rifle. Head shots do more damage than body shots with these weapons, and a single head shot can kill a player even with 100% health.
Score 15 frags with the Flak Cannon.
A person who stays in one spot for whatever reason. A person who stays at the opponents spawn points and kills them as they enter the map would be a spawn camper. A person who gaurds his or her own base/flag/power core would be a camper. Also a person who stays in one place and uses sniper weapons to kill thier enemies would also be called a camper. Generally used as a term of derision, although in most cases it is simply a matter of good defense. The opposite of camping would be "Running & Gunning".
