HyperX launches FPS and MOBA mechanical keycap upgrade kits

Many gamers invest thousands of hours in first-person shooters (FPS) and massive online battle arena (MOBA) games, and as such HyperX has launched new keycaps ($16) specifically designed for such games.The new keycap upgrade kits are designed for gamers to customize their mechanical keyboards to match the key bind configurations they deploy in-game.

Two color options are available: red and titanium. Both sets incorporate a textured grip and are coated for enhanced durability. Ideally, HyperX wants you to use these upgrade kits with their own keyboards, but really you can throw them on any compatible mechanical keyboard. Interestingly, the company already bundles upgrade kits with their own keyboards, but are limited to WASD and select number keys.

Pricing comes in at $16 (£14.99) and can be picked up at participating retailers.
