In team-based video-games, to carry is used of a player that disproportionately contributes to the advancement or progress of their team, usually but not always interpreted as indirect slander towards the rest of the team. Carrying may also be a method experienced players use to win rounds when the rest of their team are less experienced or less efficient at completing tasks; this may entail taking on enemy combatants alone, or using teammates as a distraction while completing objectives for the round.
