Ready to take your League of Legends experience to the next level? Need a new keyboard? Here are our picks for the best keyboards to play League of Legends on! This is backed by our countless hours of playing as well as research into what keyboards the top LoL pros use.
1. Razer Blackwidow Chroma
Starting us off is the Razer Blackwidow Chroma. Razer is well-known for its keyboards. The Razer Blackwidow Chroma is a beautifully assembled mechanical keyboard with fully customizable multi-colored LED lights and backlights.
The Blackwidow Chroma is the most used by Esports League of Legends teams such as Team Liquid, Counter Logic Gaming, Unicorns of Love, SK Telecom T1, paiN Gaming, and a few more teams.
The customizable lighting and backlighting allows you to easily see your keys in the dark. You can even customize it so that only the keys you want will light up, indicating activatable items, potions, trinkets, wards, etc…
The only real down-side is the high price tag. Overall, the Razer Blackwidow Chroma is a great keyboard to carry your team due to its smooth buttons, fully customizable lighting and backlighting, and its satisfyingly easy keys.
2. Corsair K70 RGB
The Corsair K70 RGB is another contender for the best League of Legends keyboard. The aluminum surface on the keyboard gives it both a durable and refined texture lasting through your League career.
The Corsair K70 RGB’s keys are slightly elevated to give it a more aesthetic, smooth, and easy to press keys. Te keyboard also includes a volume wheel and a USB pass-through.
You also have the option to choose between five different Cherry switches, such as Red, Brown, Speed, Blues, and Silent. Each switch has a different style from noisy switches to smooth and silent switches. This gives you the option to modify your keyboard Cherry switches to fit your league playstyle.
There are lots of profiles uploaded through the internet for the keyboard specified for League of Legends which can enhance your gameplay experience and give your keyboard a nice color throughout the game.
As with most keyboards on this list, the downside is the incredibly high price-tag on this keyboard, which might turn off some people.
This keyboard is also used in the pro leagues by teams such as Team Dignitas and a few others.
3. Logitech G710
The Logitech G710 is the second most-used keyboard for League of Legends Esport teams after the Razer Blackwidow Chroma. The Logitech G710 is quieter than most keys, it has a few useful keys that might be useful while playing, as well as recessed keys that protect the keys and ensure a durable keyboard.
The downside is the keyboard isn’t as customizable as others in this list, and it only has a single color for backlighting with only two backlighting zones.
This keyboard is used by quite a few League of Legends teams such as Cloud9, Immortals, and Teamsolo Mid.
4. Ducky Shine 3
Ducky Shine 3 is not a very well-known keyboard, but it’s very solid and effective. It’s solidly built and very heavy, so you can rest assured it won’t be moving while you play. The keyboard has a few options for lighting and backlighting with an artful spacebar that gives off a pleasing sound.
The keyboard has very smooth surfaces and it almost feels like gliding when going from key to key.
Ducky Shine 3 is used by only one team, Edward Gaming. The price is suitable for the keyboard, and it is highly praised by the community and players who use it.
The downsides for the keyboard is the limited amount of customization available for the keyboard. The cable is also unsleeved, so it’s easier for it to break down over time.
5. SteelSeries 6GV2
The SteelSeries 6GV2 is possibly one of the most durable keyboards used for gaming. It is used by a variety of League of Legends Esports teams because of its extreme durabaility.
Unfortunately, the SteelSeries 6GV2 doesn’t have any lighting or backlighting, and no macro keys. The low prices point and its durability is the two best things going for it.
The SteelSeries 6GV2 is a great keyboard to buy for the long run if you’re planning on saving money. This keyboard will work great with your budget and still be around for many years after you buy it.
6. Razer Cynosa Chroma
If you’re not sure you want to invest that much money into a keyboard but still want to keep up with the pros in League of Legends, the Razer Cynosa Chroma keyboard is for you. Priced at $50, it is one of the best affordable mechanical keyboards you can possibly find.
The keyboard has programmable keys and beautiful backlighting. The RGB lighting are fully customizable and the keys are soft and responsive. The plastic frame feels a bit cheap, and the design might not be as robust as other keyboards, but with such a low price tag, this keyboard is the perfect start for anyone trying to grow their League of Legends career
7. SteelSeries Apex Pro
Finishing off our list is the SteelSeries Apex Pro. The SteelSeries Apex Pro has a beautiful aluminum build with gorgeous backlighting. The keys are as silent as a whisper and fully customizable.
The SteelSeries Apex Pro’s unique feature is its custom actuation settings, which means you can edit your keyboard keys when to respond while pressing the key. You can tune a key so it responds immediately once it’s lowered a fraction down, or you can tune a key to respond only when it is pushed all the way down.
This feature will help you tune your keys with your abilities. You have an ability you use to react, in which you can’t mistime? Tune the key in order to immediately respond once slightly pushed. Keep accidentally using your Zhonyas or Ultimate? Tune those keys so they won’t respond until fully pressed down.
You can customize it however you want in order to suit your playstyle, which is what makes the Steelseries Apex Pro a great keyboard for League of Legends players. Although it is a bit expensive, but if you can get around that, this keyboard will help you glide through your League of Legends pro career.
