Roblox VR support for the Oculus Quest 2 is a bit tricky. Unlike the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and Valve Index, the Quest 2 is a standalone device out of the box. As such, fans want to know if there’s a way to play Roblox VR on Oculus Quest 2 without a PC.
Does Roblox have VR support?
Roblox does have VR support. The official website specifically lists the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. However, any device that can utilize SteamVR or the Oculus Store on PC is likely compatible.
To play Roblox in VR on PC:
- Download Roblox.
- HTC Vive/Valve Index: Ensure that the SteamVR app is open.
- Oculus Rift: Make sure “Unknown Sources” is checked in the General Settings.
- Make sure the headset is attached to the computer and launch Roblox.
- Go to the in-game settings toggle VR Mode to “On” in the settings menu.
- Select “Play” on any Roblox game in the browser.
After following these instructions, the game should launch in VR mode and appear on the headset.
Can you play Roblox VR on Oculus Quest 2 without a PC?
Since the Oculus Quest 2 is a standalone device with access to the Oculus Store, it’d be logical to think that Roblox VR would be available. However, The developers of Roblox haven’t released a native app for the Oculus Quest 2. That means, for now, the only way to play Roblox VR on the Quest 2 is to use it as a PC-connected headset.
Fortunately, the Oculus Quest 2 is easy to connect to a PC. It can use the Oculus Link feature with a USB-C cord (or USB-A to USB-C), or with an additional program, it can even stream games from the PC wirelessly.
With the popularity of the Quest 2, it’s possible the devs might release a native app. However, the hardware requirements for Roblox are so low that pretty much any PC that meets the minimum requirements for VR should run it just fine.
