Which Quest 2 games support 120Hz refresh rate?


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

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

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

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

Which Quest 2 games support 120Hz?

You’ll be pleased to hear that a number of games support a 120Hz refresh rate. It’s up to the developers to add support for that, so more games may well appear in the future as well.

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

super hot VR

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

Racket Fury

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

Eleven Table Tennis

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

Echo VR

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

Horn

Gorn is one of the dumbest and bloodiest fighting games we’ve played. A crazy but fun game full of laughs and good times. Not as fast as some other games, but it’s still one of those that benefits from the 120Hz capabilities.

Synth Jumpers

It may not be as popular as Beat Saber, but Synth Riders is one of the original VR rhythm games on Quest and now it 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 vibe and 90 puzzles to complete.

beat the saber

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

Coat of arms

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

iron fires

Ironlights is a VR dueling game where quick and skillful moves are the key to victory. Offering both single and multiplayer experiences, this game makes the most of smooth 120Hz action.

Until you fall

Until You Fall is described as a hack-and-slash roguelite that features frenetic combat that lets you cast spells, slash swords, and dodge your way to victory. Another fast-paced adventure that makes the most of the fast refresh rate on offer.

Population one

If you’ve ever wanted to play a Battle Royale in virtual reality, this is it. Such a frenetic adventure might be a little nauseating for some, which is why it’s good news that this one also has a 120Hz refresh rate.

hyper dash

Hyper Dash is a VR multiplayer team-based shooter with fast, fun action and lots of dash on location (hence the name). It makes sense that this one supports 120Hz and that really helps.

virtual office

Virtual Desktop comes in handy when connected to your gaming PC instead of using Oculus Link. Virtual Desktop supports 120Hz, which means you can play PCVR games while getting the most out of that refresh rate. So this opens games on Steam as well as the Quest store.
