In gaming, gas means "awesome" or "great." It is most commonly used as part of the phrase "that's gas," to describe a situation in which a gamer sets up a future sick move.

Where does gas come from?

Gas is an offshoot of the terms fire and lit, which are used to describe things that are amazing or exciting. It turns out, both real life and online fires require fuel. "Gas" and "that's gas" describe the moments in which a gamer navigates toward a future lit move - either by playing skillfully or lucking into an advantageous situation.

You can say "gas" or "that's gas" any time a gamer sets up or lucks into a dope move. For example, while watching Magic: The Gathering (MTG) on Twitch, you can say "that's gas" in Twitch chat when a player topdecks the exact card they need.
