Duck Hunt on Oculus Quest 2: What You Need to Know Before You Play


Duck Hunt is a classic video game that was released in the 1980s. It quickly became a popular game and is still remembered by many gamers today. With the advancement of technology, Duck Hunt has undergone various transformations to suit modern gaming platforms. One such platform is Oculus Quest 2 – but can you play Duck Hunt on it?

The answer

Unfortunately, the straightforward answer is no – you cannot play Duck Hunt on Oculus Quest 2 directly. The original version of this game was created for Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), which had its hardware specifications and software requirements.

Alternative options

While you may not be able to play the original version of Duck Hunt on your Oculus Quest 2, there are some alternative options available that simulate this experience to an extent. Some developers have created similar games with comparable gameplay mechanics as well as graphics quality.

One option available to Oculus Quest users is called “Carnival Games VR”. This title features multiple mini-games inspired by carnival-style challenges like shooting galleries or throwing darts at balloons – one challenge being duck hunting!

Another option could be Ocean Rift: Encounter Sharks & Dolphins in Virtual Reality! While it isn’t strictly duck hunting related, players can explore underwater environments while encountering various sea creatures along the way.


In conclusion, if you’re looking for a direct port or remastering of the original NES classic “Duck Hunt” then unfortunately there isn’t anything currently available for the Oculus Quest 1/Quest 2 headsets specifically. However there are plenty of other entertaining titles ready and waiting!
