What is the origin of the name NAK, and what does it mean today?
Through the years, people have been perplexed over a simple, yet unanswered question to many. A question that keeps players awake at night. To celebrate NAK’s 5th Anniversary we decided to finally put to rest one of the biggest mysteries that has spread throughout the NAK community. No… it’s not if Claws & Vile are the same person, we are talking about “What does NAK stand for?”
The origin of NAK’s name dates back to 2015 when Claws01 started the community with several other players. According to Claws, the acronym N.A.K. stands for “Nasty Art Killers”. When he came up with the name Claws was trying to describe the difference between a bad shooter and a good shooter. Anyone can play Arma but it takes skill, practice, and finesse to become a good shooter, and that makes being a good shooter an art. So players in the NAK community are Nasty Art Killers, skilled in the art of killing, at least in Arma 3.
Across the years the meaning got lost & confused, so much that a lot of people thought NAK stood for “Nasty Ark Killers” because Ark came out in 2015 and was a competitor in the gaming community vying for the same player base. Now that the NAK Community has been around for 5 years, we thought it was time for a change. We decided to ask you the NAK Squad community “What do you think NAK means today?” Go ahead and post in the comments a new meaning for the acronym NAK.
