Which Quest 2 games support 120Hz refresh rate?


(Pocket-lint) – Meta Quest 2 has had a 120Hz refresh rate as an experimental feature for quite some time. In theory, this faster refresh rate means a smoother experience and less chance of motion sickness when playing VR games.

In a recent Tweet, John Carmack, Oculus VR Consulting CTO, revealed that 120Hz display mode will be enabled by default in the future:

However, not all games support this mode, which is good for battery life, but not so good if you’re trying to take full advantage of the Quest 2’s capabilities.

So which Quest 2 games support 120Hz? Browse to find out.

How to check that 120 Hz is activated on your Quest 2

Before considering which games support a 120Hz refresh rate, it’s worth checking that the setting is available and enabled on your Quest 2.

If you haven’t already, make sure your Meta Quest 2 is updated to the latest firmware.

Then put on your headphones and follow these steps:

  1. Press the menu button on the right controller
  2. Click the settings gear icon in the quick menu at the bottom
  3. Click the settings gear at the top of the screen
  4. Search for “experimental” and click on that
  5. There you should find the setting for 120Hz
  6. Make sure it’s on

Which Quest 2 games support 120Hz?

You will be pleased to know that there are a number of games that support 120Hz refresh rate. It is up to the developers to add support for it, so more games may appear in the future as well.

Still, there are some great games that already support this mode in Quest 2:

super hot VR

Superhot VR is one of our favorite virtual reality games. A time-bending shooter that makes you feel like Neo from The Matrix as you dodge bullets and enemies on your way to victory.

racket fury

You wouldn’t want to lose your table tennis match because you had a low refresh rate and didn’t see the ball coming. So this is another logical setting for the 120Hz refresh rate mode.

eleven table tennis

Apparently, there is more than one table tennis game with support for fast refresh rate in Quest 2. However, Eleven Table Tennis is said to be the most realistic table tennis experience you can get on the platform, so why not try it? ?

Echo VR

Echo VR is a free multiplayer game that takes place in zero gravity. One of the most popular Quest 2 games and a brilliant, fast-paced game that’s perfect for 120Hz. Plus, it’s free, so why not give it a try?

gorn

Gorn is one of the silliest and bloodiest fighting games we’ve ever played. A crazy but fun game filled with lots of laughs and good times. It’s not as fast as some other games, but it still benefits from 120Hz capabilities.

Synth Riders

It may not be as popular as Beat Saber, but Synth Riders is one of the original VR rhythm games on Quest and now runs at a smoother frame rate thanks to 120Hz support.

Cubism

Cubism seems like an odd choice for 120Hz, but it works. This is a deceptively simple puzzle game with a relaxing atmosphere and 90 puzzles to complete.

beat saber

Unsurprisingly, everyone’s favorite rhythm game supports a 120Hz refresh rate. So now you can jam and smash those cubes while experiencing a smooth and satisfying experience.

Blaston

Here is a nifty game that is a tactical training survival game that depends on you moving to survive. Where every move counts, it’s important to see what’s coming and have smooth visuals.

iron lights

Ironlights is a virtual reality dueling game where quick and skillful movements are the key to victory. Offering single player and multiplayer experiences, this game is sure to take full advantage of the smooth 120Hz action.

until you fall

Until you Fall is described as a hack-and-slash roguelite that features frantic fights that have you casting spells, slashing swords, and dodging your way to victory. Another fast-paced adventure that takes full advantage of the fast refresh rate on offer.

population one

If you’ve ever wanted to play a Battle Royale in virtual reality, then this is it. However, such a frenetic adventure can be a bit nauseating for some, so it’s good news that this one also has a 120Hz refresh rate.

hyper race

Hyper Dash is a virtual reality multiplayer team-based shooter with fast, fun action and lots of racing around the place (hence the name). It makes sense that this one has support for 120Hz and it really helps.

virtual desktop

Virtual Desktop is useful when connected to your gaming PC instead of using Oculus Link. Virtual Desktop supports 120Hz, which means you can play PCVR games while taking full advantage of that refresh rate. So this opens games on Steam as well as the Quest store.
