Boom! Headshot! There are few things in this world quite as satisfying as expertly strafing yourself into position to blast your enemy's brains out. Now, you'll have a couple more options for your first-person shooting needs as HyperX has expanded its Alloy FPS gaming keyboard family to include a total of three Cherry MX switches for you to choose from.

In addition to the version that was already shipping with Cherry MX Blue, you can now opt for Cherry MX Red or Cherry MX Brown mechanical switches for your HyperX Alloy FPS mechanical gaming keyboard. It's not that one switch is necessarily any better than the other, per se, but gamers definitely have their preferences for the kind of tactile feedback, accuracy and precision they desire.

Since the Alloy FPS is so portable, HyperX is also bundling in a handy mesh travel pouch to take the keyboard with you to LAN parties, tournaments, and other gaming events. The keyboard itself features red LED backlit keys, six preset LED profiels, a custom mode, the ability to disable the Windows key, full N-Key rollover, and 100 percent anti-ghosting. There's even a handy USB port for charging your phone.

The HyperX Alloy FPS mechanical keyboard is shipping now in your choice of any of the three switches for $99.99 MSRP. That includes a two-year limited warranty.
