Esports-Themed Mechanical Keyboards

FaZe Clan and Ducky Collaborate for a Limited-Edition Keyboard

— May 11, 2022 — Tech
American esports and gaming company FaZe Clan has teamed up with mechanical keyboard company Ducky to release a FaZe-branded keyboard in May 2022.

This marks the first time FaZe Clan is branding its name on a keyboard. The collaboration will feature a custom version of the ‘Ducky One 3 Mini’ mechanical keyboard. The keyboard will be available for a limited time at the ‘FaZe Armory,’ a pop-up store in Los Angeles.

Esports brands often partner with peripheral manufacturers, but it is important to note that collaborations of this nature are often targeted at the gaming audience rather than aspiring professional players. Similar to limited-edition sneakers or apparel, these partnerships are viewed as collectibles.

“[M]aking this such an authentic way to continue to build out our consumer products business with Ducky’s high-tech gaming products and electronics.” Derek Chestnut, FaZe Clan’s VP of Consumer Products, says.
