Best Shooting Games for the Oculus Quest Android Central 2021

The Oculus Quest 2 and Oculus Quest are practically built for shooting games. Their support for two Touch Controllers and the lack of wires or external hardware make them an excellent device for dodging bullets and firing at enemies. The Oculus Store has several titles that take advantage of this setup, ranging from post-apocalyptic zombie shooters to robot mauling mayhem. Here are some of the best Oculus Quest shooting games to buy right now.

★ Featured favorite: Robo Recall: Unplugged

Robo Recall is a chaotic shooter where you have to "shut down" robots that have gone haywire. And by "shut down," I mean shoot, blast apart with a shotgun, or rip to pieces. You can block bullets with guns, blow robots apart, and rip a robot's head off and use its body as a weapon in this insane shooter.

Ready, aim, fire!

The Oculus Quest has a wide range of shooters. You can play less violent shooting games like paintball within Rec Room or blow off zombies' limbs in games like Dead and Buried II. The Touch Controllers track well enough that you can accurately aim at opponents. Their triggers make it natural to shoot down your enemies. If you want to enhance your VR shooting experience, you should pick up some of the best Oculus Quest 2 accessories.

The first shooting game I'd recommend on the Oculus Quest is Robo Recall: Unplugged. It's a frantic shooter that lets you rip robots apart and blow machines up with shotguns and other weapons. It's incredible on the Oculus Quest because you can spin around and fight enemies freely. The controls are also natural, allowing you to reload and switch guns from virtual holsters on your hip and back.

Another great title is Space Pirate Trainer. It feels like an immersive version of space invaders mixed with a classic arcade. It's an excellent display of the Oculus Quest's abilities as a shooting VR system and a great game to show your friends.
