As you might expect, esports pros need some seriously reliable hardware to do their best in the most demanding racing sims. The Thrustmaster TS-PC Racer Racing Wheel fits that bill. With paddle shifters, support for up to 1080 degrees of rotation and a powerful motor that lets you feel the car’s response, the only thing more realistic than this is actually hitting the track in real life.
If you’ve never had the opportunity to enjoy gaming on a clicky, tactile mechanical keyboard, then you’ll be wondering how you ever lived without one once you try it. The Razer BlackWidow X Chroma ranks among the best mechanical models on the market (and is one of our favorites), and it’s the perfect choice for gamers and anyone else looking for a more precise and responsive keyboard.

While you might not be as good as the pros, that doesn’t mean you can’t use the exact same tools they do to up your own game. We’ve looked at the esports competitive gaming gear used by the top players in some of the biggest games and collected the best of the best among controllers, mice, keyboards, headsets and more. This is what it takes to play like a pro.
Aside from Prime Day, Black Friday weekend is the best time of the year to score big-ticket electronics at deep discounts — and if you’re a gamer who loves deals as much as you love gaming, then Black Friday can be like Christmas-come-early for you. Razer is one of the biggest names in the world of electronics and gaming peripherals, and through Cyber Monday (November 26), a huge lineup of Razer stuff is on sale, from headsets and keyboards to laptops and mobile devices.

Specifically designed to meet the needs of gamers, the Chroma V2 comes with 5 additional dedicated macro keys for easy-access as well as an advanced Chroma configurator adding for special effects as it lights up at the press of your keys — you can choose the RGB patterns or individual keys to light up (this may come in handy if you program it alongside your hot keys for a particular game). All in all, if you are looking for a state of the art mechanical keyboard (we do not recommend anything that isn’t mechanical, especially gaming) that provides all of the necessary functions, as well as contains a refreshingly cool look, the Razer BlackWidow Chroma V2 just might be for you.
When it comes to which gear for your own gaming experience and skills should be upgraded, it will ultimately come down to personal preference. We know a few of our friends who are just about professional gamers (big Fortnite people) who prefer an old mechanical keyboard and beat up mouse pad; however, when it comes to their mouse, headset and overall PC rig, they’re constantly on the prowl for the latest upgrades. Others we’ve spoken to can get by with just about any gaming gear as long as it works, while some others we know are consistently trying to get that edge over their opponents in any way possible.
