Webopedia Fun Term of the Day: What is Spawn?

May 24, 2011, 10:08 (0 Talkback[s])

"In video and computer games spawn is the reforming or appearance of a player somewhere in the game level. In FPS games, when a character is fragged the game is not over, but rather the character spawns in one of several set locations in the map and continues playing. Usually when a character spawns after a frag they no longer have any items and special abilities they had before being fragged.
