I started studying russian this year, I am able to read russian already but still have next to no vocabulary.

Either way, the other day I was playing Borderlands 2, and when I zoomed in with a sniper, I noticed there was a russian word on the scope, which was something like: убийства

I'm sure about the "убий" part, while the rest not entirely, but somthing like that, which is "ства"... there is a chance that there was a "ц" on the middle though...

I'm sorry if it is a vague question, but I tried searching for it but haven't found anything that I could use.

It's a plural form of the noun ¨убийство¨ which means "a murder".

  • Thanks a lot, and it does make a lot of sense for where I found it
