Packaging, Accessories, and Documentation

Packaging for the Bullet Hunter MK6 is subtle, with most of the box being black, with red and white highlights. On the front of the box there is the name of the product, while at the top-left, it shows the maker and product type. At the bottom-left are three features, and the bottom-right shows "Finger's Love."

The long side which opens, the bulk of the area is black. However, where the tab lifts to open the box has "New Invader 1stPlayer" on it. Assuming this means they are the invaders in a very expensive segment.

One of the short side panels has abbreviated information. While we are shown this is a mechanical keyboard, there is only "1st" alluding to the company, as well as a "6" to signify the model.

The second of the shot sides gives us a spider. We are uncertain as to how this plays into everything, as to how it connects. There are bullet ants, and there are huntsman spiders, but nowhere else do we see this spider implemented with the Bullet Hunter MK6 keyboard.

While many companies use the back of the box to pack it full of information and insights into the product, 1stPlayer took a different approach. All we have to see is the layout of the keyboard, in larger than life proportions.

Inside of the box, we find the keyboard covered in bubble wrap, fit snugly into the cardboard box. Along the front is the cable, but we also saw a set of extra switches, along with key and switch pullers.

The extra switches match what is already on the keyboard, but we got six extras. The switches use a two-pin connect setup, while on the top we have clear bodies for the LEDs to shine through, and blue stems with side support.

As for the pullers, both of them are shown here. On the left is the plastic keycap puller, which is intended to remove the caps without damaging them. On the right is the switch puller, which can be metal, as it releases tabs on the sides of the switch, to free it from the PCB.

There is also a manual, which goes through how to connect the keyboard, but also has a guide on how to use the keyboard for lighting. We also found a quality control tag inside of the manual, which shows the keyboard has passed, but no mention of by who or when.

If you have minimal connectivity to the internet or have a download cap you don't want to inflict upon, 1stPlayer goes old school. For those still using an optical drive, there is an included disc with the software on it.
