The Pittsburgh Knights’ Ultimate Gamer Gift Guide - 2019

November 6, 2019

Buying for your gamer can be tough. Sure, a poster of a Fortnite character, or a charger shaped like a Minecraft torch are cute, but they really only prove that you can recognize something “video-game-themed” when you see it. If you’re looking for the items that gamers will actually use, love, and that will give you serious gift-giver cred, then look no further. 

 

These are the gifts your gamer REALLY wants - trust us.

 

Whether you’re playing by yourself or with friends, a quality pair of headphones can make all the difference in your gameplay - allowing you to talk strats with your team or listen for the enemy. 

Anything from HyperX will do the trick.

Our Recommendations
HyperX Cloud Mix: This stylish set is perfect for the gamer on the go, and features bluetooth so you’re never tied down.

HyperX Cloud Orbit: This headset is the best option for gamers who play FPS titles like Call of Duty, Counter Strike, Apex Legends, or Overwatch. They offer fully immersive 3D audio with incredible clarity and the most accurate sound positioning.
