Hospital Flick Meaning

A “hospital flick” in the context of first-person shooter (FPS) games refers to a quick, precise mouse movement or flick that results in an impressive kill, often a headshot.

“That’s why they call it a hospital flick, because you’re going to the hospital after that one”

The phrase caught on in the gaming community, particularly among fans of competitive FPS titles like VALORANT and Counter-Strike. Players now use “hospital flick” to describe any fast, accurate flick shot that decisively eliminates an opponent, suggesting the enemy will need medical attention after being so skillfully defeated.
