Hit boxes are areas programmed into a video or computer game where an attack will hit and do damage. A hurt box is where a player or bot can be hurt by another's attack. Splash damage is the area where a player or bot's own attack does damage to themselves. Explosive weapons like rocket launchers and grenades usually do splash damage if they explode too close to the player or bot, even when friendly fire is on.
