Best keyboard for Fortnite – In this article we’ve got everything from full-featured Keyboards, complete with a cushiony wrist rest, to extremely compact key boards that omit any additional features in favor of a slim and ‘to the point’ design. In any case, we do hope that you found this list informative and that we’ve steered you in the right direction in case you’re thinking of purchasing a new board.

As you’ve been able to see, the Fortnite pros don’t really come to one specific conclusion when it concerns their keyboards. Yes, you’ll need a mechanical keyboard, but what kind of mechanical keyboard is up to you.

Best keyboard for Fortnite – BUYER’S GUIDE

< class=”tm-sec-subtit”>Mechanical

The first thing you need is a mechanical keyboard. All hardcore gamers who tried different models opted for mechanical devices. If you follow the lead of the pros, you will also want a mechanical model for gaming.

Compared to a conventional membrane keyboard, a mechanical one has many advantages. The first thing that attracts is its durability. The Cherry MX is a basic switch often used in these models with over 50 million keystrokes. Unlike a membrane keyboard, whose switches have a lifespan of about 5 million (on average) clicks, a mechanical device lives longer and serves as the best keyboard for Fortnite.

Still, the main advantage is not reliability and durability, but a mechanical switch, which is more accurate. It is highly important for advanced gamers that every button press is registered, as problems with this function can lead to your defeat during the battle.

< class=”tm-sec-subtit”>Options

Another option that makes mechanical keyboards stand out from the competitors is their broad variety. You have a choice not only of different models, but switches (click here for an overview of the most popular mechanical switches), that are perfect for your playing style and needs. There is no such option when choosing membrane keyboards.

In general, we recommend choosing a mechanical keyboard. In terms of size and function, there are no definite standards among professional players (we have both full-size devices with various additional options in the described list, as well as more compact keyboards for playing in tournament style). In this case, the choice depends only on your needs and preferences.

We still recommend considering in advance what functions you expect to get from the keyboard. Thus, if you often participate in LAN games (at home with friends or something like that), you will be interested in a large and heavy model with a lot of additional USB ports. In case you realize you’ve never used the number pad on a keyboard and don’t need it, you can opt for a model without these keys. This will give more room on the table to move the mouse. The factors described here are just a small part of what can influence your choice. Fortunately, today’s market is full of different models for any taste, so it’s up to you to decide which one to choose.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What keyboard model does Tfue use?

Being a Fortnite pro, Tfue uses devices that have not yet been released on the global market. An example is the new 65% Ducky Mecha Mini keyboard. Of course, if Tfue hadn’t produced some add-ons, it wouldn’t have been Tfue’s keyboard. Thus, he’s replaced the keycaps on the Ducky Mecha Mini with the unreleased Ducky Tfue keyset.

  • • Will it be easier for me to play Fortnite with a keyboard?

Fortnite keyboard and mouse deliver faster results, while controllers are often more accurate due to Fortnite’s aiming assistance. Besides, with the latest changes, there is a setting that lets controller gamers customize the exact power of their aim assistant.

  • • What device is better for Fortnite: PS4 or PC?

If you have a good, high-end computer, it produces more FPS than PS4 or Xbox One consoles. While the maximum FPS on game consoles is 60 FPS, the computer can offer up to 300 FPS to its users. Due to PC’s smooth gaming experience with minimal latency, most professional gamers choose a PC for their gaming.

  • • Why are PC gamers better at Fortnite?

The average computer gamer is thought to be more advanced than the average console gamer. The thing is that the building is more intricate, the aiming is correspondingly more accurate, and the movements of a hero, without analog sticks, are completely different and smoother.


A keyboard is an often ignored part of a setup, but it really shouldn’t be. Finding a nice mechanical keyboard that has all the functions and specifications that you need can greatly enhance your comfort while playing, and in some cases even your actual gameplay.
