What Does HUD Mean?

HUD means "Heads-Up Display."

A HUD is usually a transparent display that presents data without requiring users to look away from their usual point of focus. It is part of the UI (User Interface).

In gaming, the HUD differs depending on the genre of the game and the actual game itself. It is usually on onscreen display of a character's status and other statistics (e.g., health, equipment, ammunition level, position in a race, etc.). The HUD allows the player to check a character's statistics without looking away from the gameplay.
