        <!-- Share buttons by mashshare.net - Version: 3.4.0-->You can relieve stress by meditating, making art, or getting a good workout in VR. Alternatively, you can also unload a heavy machine gun at anything that moves. And there’s a few really great choices out there if you’re looking for a little explosive therapy to soothe your woes.

Here, we take a look at the best first-person shooters on the Oculus Quest platform, which includes everything from online competitive games and full featured single-player campaigns, to some decidedly more abstract stuff that really only works in VR.

Single Player

The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners

Zombies, guns, knives, and swords. Make sure to move and strike tactically, because stamina doesn’t last forever. Great single-player story, even greater zombie-slaying action.

  • Developer: Skydance Interactive
  • Price: $40

Pistol Whip

Rhythm and shooting, together at last. You’ll constantly move forward through a cinematic bullet-hell to the beat of a pretty great soundtrack. Shoot dudes to the beat. Don’t get shot.

SUPERHOT VR

Time moves when you move. Pick up the gun or ashtray, and dodge incoming bullets in slow motion. Be tactical and feel like a super hero.

Espire 1: VR Operative

A bit like Metal Gear Solid except everyone is Australian. Climb, sneak, shoot, and complete different objectives.

Phantom: Covert Ops

Tactical kayaks sound pretty ridiculous, but paddling in VR is actually a surprisingly fun and intuitive way of moving around. Sneak, shoot, and explode dudes.

Space Pirate Trainer

It’s been around forever, but Space Pirate Trainer is still the definitive sci-fi wave shooter. Like Galaga in VR.

AUDICA

Harmonix, the makers of Rock Band, essentially meld Space Pirate Trainer and Beat Saber together to make Audica. Shoot and smash targets to the beat of a soundtrack that features songs from some of the world’s most popular artists.

In Death: Unchained

Bow and arrow-shooting in a medieval fantasy realm. Incredibly hard single-player roguelite action.

Robo Recall: Unplugged

Robo Recall was the original bar for immersive shooters in the early days when it landed on Rift. On Quest, it’s a bit uglier but still a blast.

  • Developer: Drifter Entertainment / Epic Games
  • Price: $30

Gun Club VR

Take a break from the story-driven, active games for a bit with this virtual gun range. Plink at some targets using realistic weaponry, or go for some faster-paced gameplay by shooting at pop-up alien targets.

  • Developer: Nextgen Reality Pty
  • Price: $20

Multiplayer

Population: One

A bit like Fortnite for VR. This battle royale is all about scrounging for gear and moving out before you find yourself on the wrong side of the wall-o-death. You build, climb anything, and glide. Cross-play with PC VR.

Arizona Sunshine

One of VR’s first zombie games. Campaign is playable solo or in online co-op. Significant graphical improvements for Quest 2.

Blaston

Competitive dueling in a slow motion bullet-hell. Move your body, free your mind. There is no spoon. Online PvP and PvE.

Onward

Realism is the name of the game, and Onward is all about keeping it real. Gun on your hip, radio on your shoulder. Take it slow and plan out your attack with the team. Cross-play with PC VR.

  • Developer: Downpour Interactive
  • Price: $25

Contractors VR

Aiming for realism, this military competitive multiplayer shooter offers up all of the standard trimmings. Less real than Onward, and more like CS:GO. Cross-play with Rift.

  • Developer: Caveman Game Studio
  • Price: $20
