Can you purchase a substitute controller for the Oculus Quest 2?

One of the most important parts of your Oculus Quest 2 is the controller. You control your interactions with games, apps, and other experiences, and gesture controls help you immerse yourself.

However, you could dive too deep and accidentally hit one of your controllers and destroy it. In such cases you need to find a solution as the controllers are an important part of the VR headset.

Here’s what you should know about a replacement controller for your Oculus Quest 2.

So does Oculus sell replacement controllers for the Quest 2?

Short answer: Yes

Replacement controllers for the Oculus Quest 2 are available and cost $ 69 each. Nice. You can get it directly from Oculus. Shipping is variable, with slower shipping times as it is closer to the holidays.

You should also make sure you are on the correct ordering page for the replacement controller, as the controller the Oculus Quest 2 uses is not quite the same that came with the earlier Oculus Quest.

Don’t forget to unpair the old defective controller (if possible) and manually pair the new replacement when it arrives.

One final note, while the controller for the Oculus Quest 2 is better than the one that came with the Rift CV1 in terms of battery life; they are not that robust. The tracking ring on the top sticks out and is not the thickest plastic.

Before you need a replacement controller, it might be worth buying some silicone sleeves to cushion any inevitable bumps.
