This question already has an answer here:

In TF2, I have heard of a term known as "Gib" What exactly does this term mean? There is even a strange part called: "gib kills" What does that mean? Low health kill? Adrenaline kill?

Could I please have some clarification on what both terms mean? Both the term "gib" itself and "gib kills".

Gib - as in giblets are all that's left. – mikeTheLiar Mar 19 '14 at 12:48

When you kill someone with explosives and their body parts fly around - that's a gib kill. You can also gib kill yourself.

"gib" more or less means a fragment or a body part of a killed/destroyed character.
