Short for "Mobile Object", this is a term from all the way back in the days of MUDs, or Multi-User Dungeons. These were text-based games played on Bulletin Board Systems (BBSs), and pre-date the Internet.
Refers to anything in the game that is capable of movement, although movement capability is not universal (see Mobject).
Technically this also includes NPCs, or Non-Player Characters.
Today, most players mean a Monster when they say Mob.
Examples[edit | edit source]
- "These mobs are too hard for me"
- "The mobs on this map all look very cool."
