Troubleshooting

I have an unlisted issue playing on Steam

  • SteamVR is required to properly play Bulletstorm VR on PC, whether you’re on a Valve Index or a Oculus Quest. Please ensure this is installed and running before playing the game
  • Depending on your hardware, you may need to ‘reset view’ in SteamVR once the game has launched by pressing the menu button and selecting reset view in the SteamVR interface

I have a black screen on PCVR

Virtual Desktop does not have official support currently – which can often result in a black screen. If you are not using Virtual Desktop:

  • Valve Index – Ensure SteamVR is the default runtime in the SteamVR app.
  • Quest Cable/Air Link – Ensure Oculus is the default runtime in the Oculus desktop app

I’m stuck on loading screens

We have identified a visual issue where the ‘press to continue’ does not appear after a new level has loaded. Please press the default confirm button on the controller to progress

Game Content

What comfort options are available in Bulletstorm VR?

Tunneling/Vignetting

This effect darkens the edges of view while the player is in motion to reduce discomfort. The strength of this effect can be altered to suit players’ preferences in the options menu.

Blink/Teleport

Players can choose between smooth locomotion and teleport. If players select teleport, a fade-through black effect known as a ‘blink’ is applied to smooth the transition to improve player comfort.

Stereoscopic/2D Cutscenes

Players can choose whether cutscenes render flat or in stereoscopic 3D, similar to a 3D film at the cinema. Some players find the stereoscopic effect uncomfortable, so this option is toggleable in the options menu.

Dash/Slide

In Bulletstorm Full Clip Edition, players can quickly Slide into enemies and traverse distance. In Bulletstorm VR, the option to switch to a standing dash is available in the options to increase comfort.
