The second part of Razer’s lineup for Starcraft II players is the Marauder keyboard (alongside the Spectre mouse and Banshee headset).

The Razer Marauder is a compact design that’s intended to be easily carried to tournaments. The key design is different to Razer’s other keyboards as they are more elevated, with Razer claiming that they are ‘perfected for rapid commands and improved gaming performance’. The elevated keys have an ‘optimized key travel distance’ so you should be able to repss the buttons more quickly and at the same time avoid accidental key presses. So if this new key design is so good, does that mean the flat keys of the Lycosa are no good for gaming?

Like the Spectre mouse the Marauder features an active lighting system that provides feedback on how rapidly you’re issuing commands to your forces, based on the number of actions per minute (APM) that you are performing.

The Marauder allows you to program macros on the fly, an essential feature for RTS games like Starcraft.There are unlimited macros available and they can be stored across ten different profiles.

Expect the Razer Marauder Starcraft 2 gaming keyboard to arrive in stores soon at a retail price of $119.99.
