    I head a few people say that in my most recent skirmish, and I was wondering what that meant.

    I assume it's short for. "We're both hit."

    Lingo isn't always universal. If you can add some context to how it was said, we can probably help you a little better.

    Like Knief said, Without more context we really can't say what it means.
    Every field and team uses different terms so while we can guess what it means, doesn't mean thats what they were really talking about.

    I used to play paintball and when people said "50 / Fifty" it ment the center of the field. So thats usually what I think of and I would hear what you typed up a lot because once the other team gets to that position you need to take them out or a teamate wants you to move to "50"

    Sometimes during airsoft Ill say it and people look at me wierd :( and have that look like "wtf" is he talking about.

    In Czech it means "we are even, now", which, when you think of it, makes sense.
