What does Pred mean?


Pred is a shortened form of the word “predator” and it’s often used in digital communication like online chats or text messages. It can refer to a person who takes advantage of others, or even to an animal that hunts other animals.

In social contexts, pred can be used to describe a person who exploits others. Imagine an elderly, wealthy man seeking out inexperienced young women – he could be referred to as a pred. Similarly, in a business context, a person or company that targets weaker entities might be called a pred.

The term pred is also common in gaming circles, where it describes a skilled player who easily defeats less experienced players, often called noobs. If your friend is new to a game, you might warn them about the preds who are out to earn points at their expense.

Outside of these contexts, pred can simply refer to a predatory animal. Also, if you’re a fan of ice hockey, you might recognize ‘preds’ as a nickname for the Nashville Predators team.
