While the Oculus Quest 2 comes with amazing Oculus Touch controllers – which the headset can fully track to give you a 1:1 experience in VR – sometimes what you’re actually holding in your hands may not look like what you’re holding in VR. This is why this great Oculus Quest 2 console accessory is well suited for many Quest 2 games, as it will give you a more immersive experience and may even help you play some games better.
Best console mods and accessories for Oculus Quest 2
VR Cover Controller Grip
There are many different controller grip designs available for the Oculus Quest 2, but my personal favorite is the VR Cover controller grip. It’s a little more expensive than some other brands, but its comfort level, range of adjustability, and ease of removal make it an ideal fit for any situation. Despite the name, the control knobs not only enhance your grip on the console; They make it easier to grab, throw and get a better grip on these joysticks.
VR Aura Cover Protectors
Have you ever bumped your controllers together violently while playing Beat Saber or accidentally punched something (or someone) while playing Superhot VR? Soften those blowouts and protect your consoles with these halo protectors, which will wrap the Quest 2’s light ring in soft silicone, with cutouts for the internal LEDs used for tracking.
Glistco Magni Stock
For serious shooters
If you are a fan of online competitive shooter games like Onward, Contractors or Population: One, you will really appreciate this addon. While the price seems a bit steep up front, the results pay off almost immediately. From the moment you first use this magnetic weapon, you will see an instant improvement in aiming and general fireworks in any one of these shooter games.
MASiKEN VR Game Gun
MASiKEN makes one of the coolest Quest 2 console accessories on this list, and it goes back to the days when gamers would use a light gun to shoot things on TV (think Duckhunt). While these don’t technically do anything themselves, they do add real shape and weight to the console that makes it look like a gun, helping to make games like Pistol Whip and Crisis VRigade more immersive. Plus it looks really cool. Comes in black or white options.
AMVR extension handles
Don’t call ’em Lightsabers
AMVR can’t call it what it is for obvious reasons, but we all know what those do: They turn your Oculus Quest 2 consoles into Lightsabers. Dual-use obviously screams Beat Saber, but it’s equally useful in many Star Wars games you’ll only find in VR, like Vader Immortal’s amazing Lightsaber dojo. These will make your swings more precise and give you a real feel of lightsaber light that only the right handle can do. If you want to feel like Darth Maul, you can even turn it into a double-bladed saber.
AMVR Table Tennis Racket Handle
hold the racket
If you’re a fan of Eleven Table Tennis or Racket Fury on the Oculus Quest 2, you know how realistic the physics can be, but without a real paddle, something’s missing. These AMVR paddle controllers will turn your Quest 2 consoles at an angle that feels like a real paddle and give them just the right balance to boot. Grab a grip and grab these for a better table tennis experience!
Better ways to play
The Oculus Touch controllers on the Oculus Quest 2 are amazing – there’s no doubt about it – but you can greatly improve them with a few game-specific tweaks and accessories. If you’re on a Nintendo Wii, you’ll likely have flashbacks through this list. In some ways, you can find many similar accessories to this system for the same reason adding extra weight, a longer grip, or even a completely different shape to allow the motion of the motion controls to feel more real.
As a universal solution, VR Cover’s Quest 2 grips will enhance almost any game. But they don’t just add grip. The hand strap is soft and comfortable and wraps around the back of your hand to keep the console in place even if you leave it on. These straps also balance the weight of the controller, making it easier to move the joystick with precision or better aim. They will boost your swings in Beat Saber! We even have a Beat Saber joystick, which will make you feel like you’re swinging a lightsaber instead of a controller.
Shooters aficionados will undoubtedly love the Glistco Magni Stock, a customizable weapon mount that makes carrying guns more realistic and can greatly improve aiming, helping to give you a competitive edge. Fans of arcade style shooting games will love MASiKEN’s light-armed consoles, which make each Quest 2 console look like a pistol, perfect for playing Pistol Whip or Crisis VRigade. Do not forget about these tennis rackets if you are a fan of these types of games, as they will give you a better swing thanks to the custom designs. These accessories will enhance some of the best Oculus Quest 2 games and are worth owning.
