How to play Minecraft VR Quest 2?

Answered by Tom Adger

To play Minecraft VR on the Quest 2, you need to follow a few steps to get started. As an avid Minecraft player myself, I can guide you through the process.

1. First, make sure your Quest 2 is properly set up and connected to your computer. You’ll need to enable developer mode on your Quest 2, which can be done through the Oculus app on your phone.

2. Once you have developer mode enabled, you’ll need to download and install SideQuest on your computer. SideQuest is a platform that allows you to sideload apps and games onto your Quest 2.

3. Open SideQuest on your computer and connect your Quest 2 using a USB cable. Make sure your Quest 2 is in developer mode and that you’ve allowed USB debugging when prompted on your headset.

4. In SideQuest, search for “Vivecraft” in the app browser. Vivecraft is a mod that allows you to play Minecraft Java Edition in VR on the Quest 2.

5. Once you’ve found Vivecraft, click on it to open the details page. From there, click the “Install to Headset” button to download and install the mod onto your Quest 2.

6. After the installation is complete, you can disconnect your Quest 2 from your computer and put on your headset. Look for the Oculus button on your right controller and press it to bring up the menu.

7. In the menu, look for the monitor icon, which represents virtual desktop. Click on it to open the virtual desktop on your Quest 2.

8. Inside the virtual desktop, you’ll see a list of applications and games installed on your computer. Look for Minecraft Java Edition and select it. This will launch Minecraft in VR mode.

9. Once you’re in the Minecraft VR environment, you can navigate and interact with the world using your Quest 2 controllers. The controls may take some getting used to, but they generally mimic the actions you would perform in the regular Java Edition.

10. Now you’re ready to explore and enjoy Minecraft in virtual reality on your Quest 2! Dive into the world you’ve opened and let your creativity run wild.

Remember, playing Minecraft VR on the Quest 2 requires some additional steps compared to other versions of Minecraft. However, the immersive experience is definitely worth the effort.

I hope this guide helps you get started with Minecraft VR on your Quest 2. Enjoy your virtual adventures!
