Whether you are setting up a gaming mancave for the first time or upgrading your setup, Black Friday is always the best time to do so. This is because most manufacturers offer crazy discounts on their products on Black Friday. In fact, the shopping frenzy and discounts sometimes start a week before Black Friday—but there is a catch.
In most cases—especially for physical products—manufacturers usually have a specific number of products they plan to discount. That is why you will often see the term “offer valid while stock lasts” under such offerings. Therefore, it is always important to act fast before others snap up the discounted products.
10 Black Friday deals you should not miss
The problem with most Black Friday lists on other platforms is that they are usually crammed with too many products that you get confused about what to pick thereby not solving your problem.
Although thousands—or even millions—of products are currently discounted across different online stores, we have compiled a list of heavily discounted gaming essentials that you should not miss this Black Friday. What you do with the information presented below is up to you.
A gaming chair is arguably the most important gaming essential. This is because gamers spend long hours in front of the screen. The number of hours you will spend on each gaming session will hugely be influenced by the comfort of your gaming chair. In addition to body pains, you risk developing bad posture or even more serious health problems when you use a bad gaming chair.
We particularly love E-WIN Flash XL for a long list of reasons. Firstly, it can carry up to 550 pounds which means your weight will likely never be a problem—and it is heavily padded to comfortably support that weight. What we love most is the 4D integrated lumbar support system which can be adjusted for perfect lumbar support. With our exclusive code “gamebaba”, you will get 25% off E-Win Flash XL. Below are other discounted gaming chairs.
#2. Meta Quest 2
VR gaming is taking off with an increasingly expanding library. Most first-person hit titles like the Resident Evil 4 remake have now been added to the VR games roster. No doubt, VR gaming will likely take a more prominent position in the gaming industry in the coming year.
If you don’t already own a VR headset, Meta Quest 2 will be a great place to start. While the PS VR2 was not discounted, the price of Meta Quest 2 has now been slashed by 17%. That has dropped the price below $250. If you are an Amazon Prime customer, then it’s further saving because it will be shipped to you for free. For Switch gamers, snap up Orzly VR Headset specially designed for Nintendo Switch.
There is a popular slogan that “Frames win games”, and it is not far from the truth. Therefore, when shopping for a gaming monitor, it is always important to go for a product that will offer you the best frames. We didn’t look far to find this 32” Samsung 4K Smart Monitor with a 23% discount.
What we found really exciting about this product is that it comes with a SlimFit camera and built-in Alexa support. Since it is a smart monitor, you can give your PC a rest and work straight from your monitor when you are not gaming. Below are other Samsung monitors that have been discounted for Black Friday which you can check out too.
With games gradually tilting more to multiplayer and digital sales, the importance of having a strong internet connection cannot be overemphasized. Gaming mancaves are usually set up in isolated areas where connectivity may be an issue. That is where Wi-Fi mesh and extenders come into play.

It can cover up to 5,800 square feet and works with Alexa as well as with all internet service providers. It is ideal for an internet plan of up to 1 Gbps.

#8. Air Duster
You will never know how much you need an air duster until the speed and efficiency of your laptop suddenly tanks. Although there are dozens of reasons why the performance of your gaming machine can tank, the build-up of dust can reduce the efficiency of the fans causing a buildup of heat. This eventually leads to a decline in performance.
One of the routine maintenance for gaming machines that is often ignored is blowing out dust from the vents and fans. The portable Jicawz air duster is a great option in this regard. This Black Friday, you can snap it up for 30% lower than the original price. Below are other air dusters with Black Friday discounts.

Talking is an important part of streaming. If your audience is not growing, it may be because your voice is muffled over the microphone or they don’t hear you at all. One mistake that some streamers make is that they rely on the microphone on their headphones—which are usually suboptimal.

WMT USB Microphone is a great option in this regard, and you can now get it for 29% lower than the regular price. Thanks to Black Friday. See other discounted microphones below.
