Oculus Quest 2 controllers: how to fix them and can they be replaced?

THE OCULUS Quest 2, also known as Meta Quest 2, is one of the most popular VR headsets on the market.

The low price, standalone wireless capabilities, and extensive software library make it an attractive mid-range virtual reality option.

The controllers that come with the Quest 2 are also excellent, but like any controller, are prone to damage and wear and tear.

Here’s everything you need to know about repairing and replacing your Oculus Quest 2 controllers.

Can Oculus Quest 2 controllers be replaced?

Like most parts of the Quest 2, the headset controllers can be purchased as spares should yours fail.

You can buy both the left and right Quest 2 controllers separately for £69.99 each, but unfortunately there’s no discount for buying both.

You can also pick up the much more capable Meta Quest Touch Pro controllers for £299.99 for the pair, and they come with a charging dock.

If your Quest 2 is still under warranty, you can also request a replacement or repair from Meta’s official support page.

How do I repair my Oculus Quest 2 controllers?

Due to the complexity of Quest 2 controllers, repairing them yourself is not recommended.

If you don’t know what you’re doing, you can damage the controller even more or even injure yourself.

If you’re looking to repair your Quest 2 controller, your best bet is to submit a repair request to Meta’s support team, although it will cost money.

You can also try taking the controller to a computer repair shop as some have experience with controllers like the Quest 2.

Can you play Oculus Quest 2 without a controller?

Meta recently added a new feature that allows users to control the UI without using a controller.

The new feature is called Direct Touch and was added in last month’s v50 OS update to expand on previous hand tracking options.

Unfortunately, not many games support direct touch or hand tracking just yet, so it’s unlikely you’ll be able to play games without a controller.

However, you can still scroll through the interface, launch apps, and watch videos on apps like Netflix without ever needing a controller.
