Default I broke some keys of my keyboard

Hello, so my problem is in the title, I broke 3 keys out of my k70 Cherry MX red, the touch 'k' is totally broken, if i push on it, it doesnt write anything, and for the other keys, it's just the mx red push that is broken, the little "+" that goes inside the key is stuck inside of it.
Is there any way for me to repair it or I just need to buy another one?
For information, I broke the keys by punching my keyboards...

If i recall correctly, There was a thread of someone replacing their Cherry keyboard MX Brown RGB? switches with Cherry MX Blue RGB switches from another Corsair keyboard.

You may be able to find that thread and think about replacing the switch yourself as the warranty is void due to user damage.

You may also find resources on /r/MechanicalKeyboards to be helpful as well.

WHY!?

Are you the kind of guy that tortures every innocent and poor keyboard you get your mitts (or well, fists in this case ) on, they must be crying for help!

You look like the kind that needs a tougher keyboard, there's Model Ms on Ebay. :P

you can repair it if you're good at soldering. If not well.... your out of a keyboard.
