Frag is a video game term originating from the word fragging, a term indicating to kill an unpopular superior officer with a fragmentation grenade. A frag is roughly equivalent to "kill", with the typical main difference that the player being "fragged" can instantly respawn in most games, i.e. the "kill" is only temporary. In games it is mainly used as a kill count and score system. The term is used in various first-person shooter modes, e.g. deathmatch and games, e.g. Quake III Arena. The usage is different in different games, modes and implementations. This article describes the most common uses.
