"Dusted" is a [[Real World]] slang term meaning "slain", derived from an old English funeral prayer with the line "ashes to ashes, dust to dust", which itself derives from the Bible passage Genesis 3:19 "till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return."

Guns'll blow you away.

Proposed Canon

Being Dusted means being destroyed after you have been Decrypted or Uncroaked, where the Unit leaves no body behind, even until the end of the Turn, instantly turning into dust.

A "Dusted" Unit, because it leaves no remains like a Croaked Unit, cannot be Uncroaked or Decrypted, resulting in a permanent Croaking of the said Unit.

The term was first mentioned (even though not as a term per se) on TBFGK 22:8.

Real World References

"Dusted" is a Real World slang term meaning "slain", derived from an old English funeral prayer with the line "ashes to ashes, dust to dust", which itself derives from the Bible passage Genesis 3:19 "till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return."
