What Does F Mean?
F means paying your respects, a phrase used by online gamers, or people who are exposed to the gaming culture, as a way to show respect in situations that generally involve grieving or loss.
The term F developed in 2014 when Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare featured an action that allowed you to press the F key in your keyboard to pay respects to a fallen soldier. Since then the moment has been screencapped and used as a meme everywhere.
