8 Awesome One Handed VR Games

VR Games you can play with one hand

A pretty common question are there any one handed VR games or which VR games can you play with One Hand?

Either because a person has limited mobility, various medical reasons, or because you accidentally hit your wall a little too hard while playing VR, many users are looking for games that allow you to play with only one hand. There are several options in this area for you in a wide range of genres.

Can I Play VR With One Hand?

Yes! You sure can. There are several games that have taken one handed VR gamers into account and made an entire mode available. Some other games are naturally played with only one hand for all players.

Remember some of these one handed VR games are more accessible than others. You might need someone else’s help during the initial setup by adjusting in-game settings or options, in a few of the games.

If a user has more serious limited mobility issues, I would also recommend checking out WalkinVR Driver for Steam VR and PC VR players.  WalkinVR has already been used by people with conditions like multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, spinal cord, traumatic brain injuries, muscular dystrophies, spinal muscular atrophies, neuropathy, Lyme disease, and other kinds of orthopedic problems.

Beat Saber

Beat Saber is a VR rhythm game where you slash cubes as they float towards you in time to the music. Although the concept is pretty simple it can take a while to master the game and beat those higher levels.

The most popular VR game is able to be played one-handed. You can select from the settings “one-handed”. Expert skill level will be required, but this won’t be like Expert with two hands, and most people should be able to manage it. You could also choose No fail mode and play any mode that you play with two controllers.
