    Yeah, a newbie is a newcomer while a noob is an idiot who acts like they are good.

    Difference Between Noob And Newb

    A newbie; a person who has just arrived at something, wants to be accepted, wants to make a name of him/herself, wants to make friends, even. There is nothing wrong with these people. Example: ME

    A noob; a person who is not necessarily new, but just wants to tick people off. This person is very unlikely to have an intelligence near the average, and many just want him/her to shut up and go to a chat channel. Many people are annoyed with this type. Example: YOU (just kidding)

    Newbie = New player

    Noob = Can mean new player, but is generally now used for someone who is bad at a game and uses cheap tactics to win (hence why the grenade launcher on COD is called the noobtube)

    newbie is someone that is new, period. It doesn't mean they're a smart alec or a shy kid, it just means they are new at something.

    noob on the other hand, is open to a lot of definitions. I have heard it being used for new people, for idiots, or just an attempt to offend someone else online.

    Newbie: is new player in game and maybe skilled or not

    Noob:is ALREADY Not Skilled player

    i think your both wrong, i think noob is the slang version of newbie. And they both mean "new" which can be insulting to people who have been playing something for awhile

    Noob comes from the word new. Newbie does too. They mean the same thing.
