Whenever you’re playing Roblox, has anyone ever typed AFK in the chat and disappeared for a few moments? The phrase AFK stands for “Away from Keyboard” and in Roblox it means the player is going away from his keyboard for a certain period of time.
Sometimes in multiplayer games, your teammate might be standing doing absolutely nothing. If there’s no reaction from them for a while and no AFK message then perhaps they’re facing some type of problem.
What Is AFK in Roblox?
AFK is a way to tell people you’re playing video games together that you’re not going to play for a while. Depending on the game you’re playing, your screen time might be off the charts.
You might be sitting down for too long and this could lead to serious health issues. It’s important to get up, stretch, drink some water, and refresh your eyes for a few minutes. In such moments the AFK message is very handy for you and your fellow gaming partners.
Why Are People AFK in Game?
People may have to leave their gaming station for a while just to go to the toilet. It could be for any other reasons. The pizza they ordered may have arrived or they must have heard the microwave sound. For any reason, if it’s just for a short period of time then gamers will write AFK in chat and be inactive.
People may also stay AFK from a game because they have other work on their computer. They might suddenly become busy with some task that will require them to minimize the game. In such situations gamers are AFK.
How Long Can You Stay “AFK” in Roblox
You can stay AFK for a maximum of 20 minutes in Roblox. After that, if you’re still inactive, the game will automatically kick you out. Some games may kick you out sooner.
The game automatically disconnects you when you remain idle without any action. So, a lot of players download an auto-clicker in order to stay in the game.
