Looting in a gaming context, specifically in massively multiplayer online games (MMOGs) and MUDs, is the process by which a player character obtains items (or loot) such as in-game currency, spells, equipment, or weapons, often from the corpse of a creature or possibly the corpse of another player in a PVP situation (cf. looting).1 These looted items will be placed into the player's own inventory. Loot is considered a reward for killing a creature or other player.
Looting, using the alternative alphabet of leet speak can be written as "lewting", derived from common misspelling.
