Now that you have set up your Meta Quest 3, you're probably eager to explore the best VR games for your new headset. Maybe you're specifically curious about whether Pavlov VR is available on the Meta Quest 3.

Pavlov VR was not on Oculus Quest 2 due to its limited specs. But now, with the arrival of Quest 3 featuring improved hardware, it is natural to wonder whether we can play the multiplayer shooter on it.

In this comprehensive guide, we delve into the heart of the matter to provide you with all the information on the availability of Pavlov VR on the Meta Quest 3.

Is Pavlov VR on Meta Quest 3?

Pavlov VR is not available to play on the Meta Quest 3. However, there are two pieces of good news: First, you can play Pavlov VR by connecting your Quest 3 to your PC. Second, Pavlov Shack is available to play on the Quest 3.

In case you didn't know, Pavlov Shack is a multiplayer VR shooter developed by the creators of Pavlov VR, Vankrupt Games. It is the Quest spin-off of the original Pavlov VR which is optimised to run on Quest headsets' standalone hardware.

It has been confirmed that Pavlov Shack will get a free Meta Quest 3 upgrade. This exciting upgrade will introduce a fresh game version that's tailored to harness the improved specs and higher resolution of Meta Quest 3.

It's important to note that Pavlov Shack is currently in its beta stage and is only available through the App Lab.

How to play Pavlov VR on Meta Quest 3

If you'd rather play the original Pavlov VR on the Meta Quest 3, you can achieve this by linking your Quest 3 to your gaming PC. The only requirement is that your PC must meet the system specifications for Pavlov VR.

There are primarily two distinct methods to connect your Quest headset to your PC. The first involves a wired approach using a Meta Quest 3 accessory known as Air Link, while the second is a wireless method using Oculus Air Link.


If you have a Link Cable, we highly recommend the wired approach due to its superior connection stability, crucial for an immersive VR experience. However, if you don't have a Link Cable, your sole option would be Oculus Air Link.

If you're opting for the wireless option, you can locate Oculus Air Link in the Experimental Features section within the Settings menu. Before you start gaming, we advise removing any nearby devices that might interfere with the connection for a smoother experience.

And that concludes our guide on the availability of Pavlov VR on Meta Quest 3. While you're here, take the opportunity to discover whether Phasmophobia and Roblox are also accessible for play on Meta Quest 3.
