To nerf: To make worse or weaken, usually in the context of weakening something in order to balance out a game.[This usually refers to weapons or other items in first-person shooter games or MMORPGs.]
The nerf is also a form of livestock in the Star Wars universe.[Princess Leia likened Han Solo to a “stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf-herder” in The Empire Strikes Back … then proceeded to unknowingly make out with her own brother. That’ll teach her to use such language. (Han didn’t hold it against her.)]
