The right edge view of the Bullet Hunter MK6 is a lot like what we saw before. Two things have changed, as we flipped out the feet under the keyboard, and doing so has changed the angle of attack to the keys for the better.

Under the keyboard, we see that the frame is highly stylized with the chevron pattern. There are four rubber pads to support it, and we even see drain holes, and is what helps 1stPlayer claim the keyboard is waterproof.

While we do like it better, when the flip out feet open to the sides, rather than to the back, as seen here, at least the feet have rubber tips. Sliding this keyboard away from you can and will collapse the feet, so bear that in mind.

The cable is covered in braided cloth, has a built-in ferrite choke, and is nearly two meters long. At the gold plated connection, the connector is stylized to be different than the rest, but no names are present.

 

The keycaps are double-shot, which means the opaque white centers are molded, and once cooled, another shot of black is done over the top. While the main legends are then left very hard to wear out, we do notice that all of the secondary function notations are painted on, and will likely wear off over time.

For the FPS crowd, Corsair offers a set of four keycaps for the WASD keys. Each of them is gray on top, highly textured like the space bar, and are all angled for a better feel while moving around the maps.

The switches found on the keyboard are identical to the Outemu switches we got as extras. When it comes to the larger keys and the space bar, the torsion bars are enclosed, and the MK6 uses helper studs to support them.

Since the keyboard has a scroll-bar for sound, it makes open the keyboard next to impossible. Therefore we moved right into connectivity to get some perspective on the lighting. With one of the various modes enabled we find a rainbow of colors moving left to right, but even at the brightest of four intensity levels, the RGB LEDs are quite muted compared to other keyboards.
