What does LFG mean in online gaming?

Looking for group

When a player in an online multiplayer game like a First-Person Shooter (FPS) or a Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (MMORPG) says LFG, it simply means they’re “Looking For Group”.

Online games often need players to form teams or parties to either play the game or complete specific missions. In such cases, gamers use the term LFG to express their need for a group.

Gamers usually use LFG in different ways. They might post LFG in the game’s chat or discussion boards. They might also share it on external platforms like a game-specific Discord channel.

Some players might even opt for specialized LFG apps like Player Find, which are designed to connect gamers who are looking for a group to play with.
