  • How to run Roblox in VR 
  • Great Roblox VR games to try out 
  • Some frequently asked questions (FAQs) 

So without further ado, let’s get started.

How to Run Roblox in VR?

To run Roblox in VR, you’ll need a VR headset that can connect to your PC as well as a powerful PC with Roblox installed on it.

Once you have both, follow these steps to run Roblox in VR: 

Step 1: To start off, you’ll first need to connect your VR headset to your PC. 

Depending on what VR headset you have, the process will differ. 

If you have a Meta Quest 2, then you’ll need either an Oculus Link cable or you’ll need to connect it to your PC via Oculus Air Link. Oculus Air Link is a software by Oculus that allows you to wirelessly connect the headset to your PC.

Headsets like the HTC Vive Pro 2 and Valve Index can connect to your PC with the help of SteamVR which is Valve’s VR software. You can get it for free by downloading and installing it through Steam

If you have some other VR headset, you can easily look up its instructions online or through an instruction manual that you might get with it. Follow the instructions provided to connect the VR headset to your PC. 

Pro tip: If you’re trying to connect your VR headset to your PC wirelessly but are having issues, check to see if both of them are on the same wifi network. 

If they’re not on the same wifi network, that might be the reason you’re having issues.

Step 3: Install all the VR titles on the Roblox platform that you’d like to play. 

We’ll list some great VR games available on Roblox later on in this post for you to choose from. 

Step 4: Once you try to launch any of the VR titles that you installed, you’ll be asked to provide certain permissions to your VR headset and PC. 

You can provide these permissions by clicking on the “Allow” button. It’s important to provide these permissions so that your VR headset can perform appropriately and there are no compatibility issues. 

Step 5: Once you launch a VR title through Roblox, it should launch in VR mode. 

Check your VR headset and ensure that it has indeed launched in VR mode. 

If it’s not running in VR mode, then that probably means that VR mode is turned off in the Settings. 

To turn it on, press the Escape button and go to your Settings. 

Within Settings, toggle VR to On. 

Great Roblox VR Games to Try Out

So you’ve managed to run Roblox in VR but don’t know where to start when it comes to the VR games available on the platform. 

Don’t worry as we’ve compiled some of the best VR games that the platform has to offer. 

These VR games include: 

Escape Room 

Escape Room is a great puzzle game that is highly enjoyable alone as well as with friends.

You’re put in the shoes of a protagonist whose goal is to escape certain rooms by solving the puzzles inside of them. All of the puzzles are timed so you’re always on edge trying to find ways to escape. 

While it’s definitely a fun time alone, we do recommend that you ask your friends to play it online with you as well. It’s a much more fun experience when you’re all running around the room, trying to look for clues on how to get out. 

The controls are responsive and the VR is quite smooth as well. It’s an extremely fun virtual reality game that really gets your blood pumping. 

Koala Cafe 

Koala Cafe is a highly unique experience where one instance of the game allows 50 players to play it at the same time.

It revolves around a cafe and the people inside of it. Each player is assigned a role when they join which can be anything from the owner, an employee, a customer and more. 

It allows you to hang around with your friends and also, make friends with strangers through genuine social interactions. You can also play it competitively to push the cafe to new levels so that it becomes highly successful. 


The game is highly immersive while also being a great hub for making friends online. 

VR Laser Tag 

We trust that we won’t really have to explain what this game entails since the title pretty much explains it all.

When you load up VR Laser Tag, you are thrust into a dark room with neon lights and flashy visuals. You’re equipped with a laser gun and your objective is to, of course, shoot other players with that laser gun. 

The game provides many different modes that allow you to play with your friends, in teams or alone. 

The controls are smooth and responsive, with the game being a blast to play that can keep you entertained for hours on end. 

Cook Burgers VR 

Cook Burgers VR is a great option if you’re someone that wants to earn some Robux while playing a game inside Roblox.

It’s similar to Koala Cafe since the goal of this game is also to manage a restaurant and ensure its success. That being said, it has many fun little tidbits and secrets for you to explore and discover. 

Once again, the controls are super smooth and never frustrating or disorienting.
