Top Meaning

Hit points

HP means hit points. It is a gaming term that describes the amount of health a unit or character has.

Hit points are a good indicator for how strong a character or unit is, as characters with higher hit points can sustain more damage. When HP is reduced to 0 through fights or other damage the character either faints or dies.

Example

"That warrior has a ton of HP! He can probably solo that boss."
