DPS is a videogame term that stands for Damage Per Second. The DPSer is a combat role all about dealing said damage, as quickly as possible, to a single target. This may be done via Ranged Weapons, Ambush / Sneak Attack, Poison, or just diving in to the Melee. It's a pretty broad category, that arguably encompasses all characters who fight one attack roll at a time.
