Halo Infinite's multiplayer mode is out now, and if you're playing on PC, then having the best keyboard for the job is going to be vital for precise and accurate inputs when you're in the heat of battle.

For the point of precision, you'll want to keep an eye out for keyboards with mechanical switches, such as those from CHERRY, Kalih, Gateron and so on. In fact, all of the keyboards we've listed below come with mechanical switches, and there are some decent ones to be had.

If aesthetics are important to you, then having some handy RGB lighting may well be important, and even if doesn't make any real difference to performance, it means you'll look cool when doing so. Having good software alongside this is also integral so you can control everything.

For a properly brilliant wired gaming keyboard, there are few better out there than the Steelseries Apex Pro.

The headline feature here is that this board features switches with an adjustable actuation point. What this essentially means is that you can adjust the distance on the switch between pushing it down and an input being recorded.

For gaming, this can be especially helpful so you don't need to push a key all the way down for it to function, which in turn allows for an even snappier experience than with more traditional linear switches.

The Steelseries Apex Pro also features an intriguing party piece by way of its OLED display that sits in the top right corner of the board. This can show various pieces of interesting information including system temperature and RAM usage, or Discord notifications.

It's also quite a suave looking gaming keyboard with an aircraft-grade aluminium frame that also ensures this should be quite sturdy and well-made too.

Manufacturer: Asus | Switches: RX Blues/RX Reds | RGB: Yes | Optical: Yes | Wristrest: Yes | Wireless: Yes | Battery Life: 43 Hours (Full RGB)/ 144 Hours (No Lighting)

If it's wireless freedom you're after, then the Asus ROG Claymore II looks to be a fantastic shout, especially given it has marked itself out as one of the best keyboards money can buy today.

What you're getting here is a nice blend of a solid metal and plastic construction alongside an ingenious modular design that allows you to choose whether you want a full size keyboard, or a tenkeyless option without a number pad.

You'll also find that the ROG Claymore II also offers up a brilliant set of opto-mechanical switches, or in other words, switches that operate at the speed of light. There's the option of either Asus' own RX Red or Blue, giving the choice of either a linear or tactile switch.

In addition, you'll find a handy combo of USB-C charging and what looks like good battery life with 144 hours with no Aura-sync enabled lighting, or 43 hours with it on.

On the subject of lighting, the RGB present on the ROG Claymore II looks to be pretty sharp and the associated software should also offer up plenty of customisation.

Razer makes some of the best peripherals out there, and the Blackwidow V3 is no exception.

You may notice it's got quite an eye-catching outer shell, largely thanks to the fact this version of Razer's gaming veteran is a special Halo Infinite edition, complete with nods to Master Chief, including the code 117 that's present on the wristrest. Overall, we think this looks rather cool.

Under its rather classy looking shell, the Blackwidow V3 features a choice of either Razer Green or Razer Yellow switches for a choice of either linear or tactile offerings. Both options should feel decent under finger and help to provide a cracking experience when you're in the heat of battle.

It also offers up Razer's signature Chroma RGB lighting that should be bright and crisp, and the associated Synapse 3 software will also allow you to customise the keyboard's inputs and lighting till your heart's content, including programming macros which will definitely come in handy.

A convenient wired connection also ensures that there should be zero latency here as well.

Best Budget Keyboard For Halo Infinite - Redragon K552

Manufacturer: Redragon | Switches: Outemu Reds | RGB: Yes | Optical: No | Wristrest: No | Wireless: No | Battery Life: Wired

If you're looking for a marvellous gaming keyboard on a budget that will get you results, then the Redragon K552 looks like a great choice.

Under the hood, you'll find some Outemu Red switches, which are their equivalent to CHERRY MX Reds, and will be ideal for gaming, given that they are light and linear switches. These will allow for snappier inputs, which can certainly help when you're in the heat of battle.

Alongside this, you won't be getting any dodgy inputs as the Redragon K552 features both anti-ghosting and NKRO, which are two must-have features in the modern market, even on more budget-oriented boards.

It also offers up a tenkeyless form factor, saving you a little bit of desk space, and also allowing you to pair this keyboard with the combo of a larger mouse pad and a brilliant mouse for FPS games to go with it.

There's also 19 different lighting presets to choose from, meaning this Redragon board should also look the part when you're gaming.

Manufacturer: Logitech | Switches: GL Clicky/GL Tactile/GL Linear | RGB: Yes | Optical: No | Wristrest: No | Wireless: Yes | Battery Life: 40 Hours (Full RGB)/ 135 Days (No Lighting - 8 hours use per day)

The Logitech G915 Lightspeed TKL makes our list because of quite an intriguing party piece it features - low profile switches.

On a basic level, this particular keyboard is quite a thin board and therefore offers up some switches with a shorter key travel. For gaming, this is especially handy as it means you don't have to push down the keys as much as usual for them to actuate, and also allows for snappier inputs.

With regards to switch selection, Logitech is utilising Kalih switches for this particular board and you get a choice of three - GX Tactile, GX Linear, and GX Clicky. These would match up in feeling with CHERRY MX Browns, Reds and Blues respectively,

The G915 Lightspeed TKL is also a tenkeyless keyboard, which is also pretty handy. Space-saving layouts are becoming more popular by the moment, and having a TKL keyboard means you aren't sacrificing too much in terms of layout to get more space.

Even with this being a wireless board, Logitech's Lightspeed wireless connection ensures a practical zero latency connection with a response time of 1ms, and there's also some immense battery life to boot - 40 hours with RGB on, and 135 days (yes, days) with it off.
