How To Play Metal: Hellsinger In VR? [Free PC Mod]

Doom meets Pistol Whip.


Metal Hellsinger is a rhythmic first-person shooter video game where the player has to shoot in sync with the beats of the music. The game is similar to BPM: Bullets Per Minute and Pistol Whip. Fortunately, modder LivingFray has done a fantastic job bringing Metal: Hellsinger to PC VR with motion controls.

After being ported to VR, the game seems more like a combination of Pistol Whip and Doom. Shoot down hordes of demons with epic metal music playing in the background. It is definitely one of the more interesting flatscreen games with a PC VR port.

Fortunately, this game is not the only PC game that can be played in VR. Gamers can check out our other guides on how to play games like GTA V, Cyberpunk 2077, Resident Evil Village, and more in VR. For Metal: Hellsinger, you can take a look at some of the VR gameplay down below.

Things needed

To play the game in VR, users must have a decent gaming PC. The game was not designed for VR so it can be quite graphically intensive. So we recommend turning down the graphics settings. If you are using a Meta Quest headset, then you can connect to a PC using Oculus Link, Air Link, or Virtual Desktop.
