A question about the meaning of a phrase, wherein a slang is used

Postby Evelynn » 2018-04-14, 11:54

Greetings, everyone.

I'm clearly not a native speaker, and I have had a problem understanding the meaning of two sentences in a video wherein a few English slangs were used, which led me to seek aid from you kind reader.

Would you please tell me the meaning of the last two sentences with the used slang, and what the speaker is trying to convey by his words and phrases?

I don't really have enough context to be completely sure about what's going on in that video, but I'll try to help anyway. :P I hear the following:

"...her movement speed allows her to get away, but other than that, you hit the two, Artemis goes pew-pew."
"Ha ha! Yeah, I like that. Trademark [bleep]."

Pew-pew is imitating the sound of guns, so I would interpret goes pew-pew to mean something like 'will be shot dead'.

Trademark is the same as classic, and the "bleep" sound after that is censoring the word bitch. I would say "trademark bitch" = "classic bitch" = a characteristic bitch or someone who is characteristic of a bitch.
