Four-Boxing is a type of Multiboxing logging into a VR system as multiple separate avatars, characters, or accounts. Specifically, Four-Boxing means the user is simultaneously controlling three avatars. They have encapsulated themselves inside four separate boxes as it were, with each box being one of the avatars.

Four-Boxing is beyond the upper limit for multiboxing for the human nervous system to accomplish. Being four different people simultaneously, interacting with each other and others in a believable way simply is not possible for a single human mind to accomplish. Thus those who do multibox at this level, fail to be convincing at it, or particularly competent at controlling their avatars even with the absolute minimum embodiment of gameworld characters. To multibox at this level with high-level embodied avatars would be unthinkable. Unless they were spun off onto separate AI control, at which point of course, it's no-longer multiboxing.
