The Oculus Quest 2 ships with some pretty amazing controllers, known simply as Oculus Touch. While these controllers work perfectly for many VR games — especially ones where you’re moving around — some games just make more sense with a traditional gamepad or something more specialized like a HOTAS flight stick. You can even use a mouse and keyboard if you want! Looking to branch out for your next gaming experience? These are the best Oculus Quest 2 controller alternatives for every situation.

There’s really just no beating the sheer compatibility you’ll get with an Xbox Core Controller. The Xbox Core Controller is the controller that ships with the Xbox Series X|S and features Bluetooth connectivity that pairs perfectly with your Oculus Quest 2 or your gaming PC. Microsoft’s Xbox controllers define how a great traditional controller should work and feel, and every game that supports a traditional controller works perfectly with this one.
