verb (arseruns, arserunning, arseran)
- To follow (and shoot at) (somebody in a first-person shooter game after having passed them).
Etymology: First usage among gaming communities in the late 1990s; probably derived from running after an opponent while facing their rear (arse). Used in game types such as w:Capture the Flag, Capture the Flag in which, once two players have passed one other, they should go for the flag. A player who turns round and follows an opponent is only hunting for frags, hence arserunning is frowned upon.
- One of your players arseran me at every opportunity.
- You were arserunning for the whole game.
