Pavlov VR is one of the most well known VR shooters, partially thanks to its viral success among YouTubers, and partially because it basically delivers on the dream of playing Counter-Strike in VR. Now, the studio behind Pavlov VR says a Quest version is currently in the works.

Developer davevillz says the studio has only had Quest on-hand for a few hours, although it’s proven to be compelling enough of an experience to commit to a bonafide version.

Davevillz maintains that since Steam Workshop provides a base for the game’s modded content however, that the Quest version will consequently have its own set of maps, putting a damper on full cross-playability.

Davevillz does say though that the studio is intending to release on the Oculus Store, although of course since it’s still so early in development, that there’s no firm date as such.

If you’re looking to test it out, the studio is throwing out an open alpha build that Quest owners can unofficially sideload (direct download link).

Intrepid testers can also send feedback via Pavlov VR’s Discord channel (invite link) and find more information there on how to load and play the alpha build.

    Would be glad if they would add crossplay with pc versions aswell, even though quest has only 72hz…, it would add alot more competition.

    Pavlov is a great game, I used to play it a lot but now my favorite VR shooter is Contractors, I hope it gets a Quest release too.

      It’s a shame C$ isn’t more popular, and right now matching is screwed and the servers are full of ghost players

      • antonio mora

        After the latest update I see more ppl in servers (USA servers at least) but ghost players, yeah I’ve seen a few of those too.

          Contractors is far better than Pavlov but I still enjoy Pavlov a lot and frankly I am 10x stronger in Pavlov than in Contractors => koog2003[ITA] for those who played with me

      • Renzo V

        yeah, whats up with that, contractors is way superior than Pavlov

        • PJ

          My guess is Pavlov has the steam community workshop and has a popular maps from old games, nostalgia is a powerful tool, plus it’s cheap.

          Don’t get me wrong, I like Pavlov, and I still play Pavlov for its TDM, plus you know your going to get a full game, when you log on. But Contractors is better game, in every way.

  • Oh hey, Pavlov is great, even though I can’t play it since they dropped FX series support. Just a heads up, though, that article thumbnail is from CoD4.

    • ViRGiN

      The thumbnail is from Pavlov Workshop, this is a custom map.

      • It’s a custom map which is a port of a CoD4 map, yes.
