IIRC - should be found on some 'internet acromym' site
AFAICT - unusual form of afaik - probably 'as far as I can tell'
LOS - game related: 'line of sight'
SR+HL - never seen that before
FIBUA - same

IIRC-If I Recall Correctly
SR+HL...huh...probably meant (ingame) Sniper Rifle+Heavy Laser, two most used early to midgame long range weapons.
FIBUA...never heard that. Mind linking to topics where you seen it?

FIBUA is in the thread EasY linked to, but I doesn't make sense to me.
Maybe just ask LewYard directly ?

FIBUA = Fighting in Built-Up Areas, one of the phrases sometimes used to describe urban warfare.
