When it comes to playing games, those who can multitask the best often wins. Of course, this takes into account that both players share the same level of skill, tactical acumen, and perhaps even luck. Unfortunately, with very little separating two gaming titans from each other, the difference between glorious victory and defeat could boil down to the hardware used. The Cyber Snipa Warboard ensures that you get the best gaming experience possible, providing up to 10 assignable macro keys physically, with five on each end of the keyboard. Guess you have no excuse now if you lose even when using the Cyber Snipa Warboard, so don’t quit your programmer job yet to be a pro-gamer.
Other than the 10 macro keys that I mentioned earlier, there are also another 10 which are accessed in “macro mode”. This gives you a grand total of twenty buttons to keep your fingers occupied, with each macro enabling you to script a string of actions via the bundled software. Now if only the Cyber Snipa Warboard came out back in the early days of Quake, when I had no idea on using the mouse as the gaming peripheral of choice but instead tried to make numerous rocket jumps with a keyboard which result in failure most of the time. In addition to those 20 keys, you also get 17 swappable combat keys which are able to specify movement directions, weapons selection, reloading, and chat among others. The picture labels on those keys are practically useless since seasoned gaming veterans hardly look at the keyboard – only n00bs stare continuously for reference.
At this point in time, it looks as though the Cyber Snipa Warboard caters toward FPS gamers only, and it would be nice to see if more Warboard combat keys can be picked up individually from stores in the future. This unique keyboard comes in an armor plate finish, and can even disable the pesky Windows key at the push of a button. It will sell for $69.99 a pop.
