Cheese

1. What does cheese mean in online gaming?

Exploitative strategy

In gaming, a cheese strategy is one that abuses an overly-powerful ability or exploits a game mechanic to produce an easy win. For example, in fighting games, spamming the same move over and over without giving the opponent time to respond is considered a cheese strategy.

Players' opinions about what types of strategies are cheesy differ, so cheesing often proves contentious. Also, while cheese strategies are strong, they tend to require that a player goes "all-in" on them - meaning they fall apart quickly if an opponent figures out how to beat them.

Example

"He always tries to cheese on this map because he can't win in a straight-up game."
