The Best Gaming Keyboard for Fortnite – Corsair K70 Mechanical Keyboard
The K70 is the perfect keyboard for long Fortnite gaming sessions due to it having a wrist rest which can be annoying at first to get used to as I know I struggled but once you get used to it OMG it doesn’t half help. However, you can remove the wrist rest if need be.
The K70 looks very extreme but yet professional at the same time. It uses Cherry MX Switches, Which produce little to no noise at all for a mechanical keyboard compared to the Razer Chroma keyboard which sounds like a typewriter. There is a version which comes with MX blue switches which are louder than the MX Red so it’s down to personal preference. The Corsair K70 is another great choice making it one of the best gaming keyboards for Fortnite players.
