Found Some Crap-looking Mystery Gamer Keycaps

Found some keycaps (images below) in storage at my work and have no idea what kind they are. They're rather shallow and cheap feeling as one would expect for these sorts of pack-in gamer accessories, but I'm curious as to what they're for. My guess is a proprietary format for a gaming laptop keyboard.

Kudos to anyone who knows what these are :mrgreen:

Weird mount...maybe some kind of rubber dome? Who would want to take away real keys from their keyboard and replace them with dedicated gun and fist keys?

I have no idea, it seems incredibly tacky. I could certainly see these getting stuck over a rigid rubber dome.

One of the fancier Dell keyboards had a very similar cross-like kind of stem. I don't know the exact model number or manufacturer, but if you look up "dell multimedia keyboard", it's the flatter one with a volume wheel above the sixkey but a normal-sized spacebar.

The legends aren't the common Counter Strike theme, though.

lmao I can definitely see some little kid getting a dell PC in 2006 thinking he's hot stuff after slapping these on his crapola board.

I think I've seen that slider before but I can't remember where...

A laptop keyboard wouldn't have such tall sliders, even if it was older and not using scissor-switches.

Yea, good point. I should also point out that theses things are oily and cheap-feeling to the touch, so whatever they were on it wasn't anything anyone on this site would use.
