VR Shooting Game Types

Our games below are broken down into two categories: single player and multiplayer.

Single Player 

Single player VR shooters are games that you play by yourself. There are a lot unique VR experiences where you get to shoot a gun in single player mode.

Single player games can be played at your own piece. They can either be story-based or high score based.

Multiplayer

Multiplayer shooting games take you online to play against other real life players around the world. You play individually or team up with others in a variety of different modes:

  • Team Deathmatch
  • Capture the Flag
  • Control Point
  • Last Man/Team Standing

Multiplayer games often require more strategize in order to be successful. They are also more varied, since no two games will play the exact same way.

Most VR players just use their controllers as they come. We have a guide for the best custom gun stocks for the Oculus Quest to check out.
