How to play/Install GTA V in VR Step by Step

GTA V VR
So here are the steps that you need to follow to install the GTA V VR MOD to play GTA 5 in VR (Refer to the pictures provided)

Step 1 : Check Your Requirements

Now, first of all, you’ll need to have a fresh install of GTA 5 on your PC without any other mods installed. 

If you’ve never installed any mods before, then you should be fine without reinstalling the whole game.

But please ensure the game is up to date and also note that this mod is for the single-player game only, and you’ll likely get a ban if using mods like this one in the online multiplayer.

GTA 5 VR

Although the VR mod can work with other mods, compatibility isn’t guaranteed if you have any success with using it with other mods though please share your results with the community in the comments down below.

If you don’t already own a copy of GTA 5 at the time of making this video, Rockstar’s games are currently running a sale on Steam across their range of titles so you can get 50% off GTA 5 right now making it $14.99.

If you don’t have a backup of your original GTA V save game data, then don’t worry;  I’ve linked to a hundred percent GTA 5 save file

All you need to do is download the save file and drop it into your GTA 5 save game folder, which is typically under C Drive.

GTA VR Mod

Step 2 : Change the Settings

Once the games installed, launch the game usually on your desktop and change the following settings in the games menu before installing the VR mod.

First, go to settings > gamepad > targeting mode and turn it on to free aim. 

Then go to settings > camera and then change the following settings: 

  1. Allow independent camera modes.

  2. First-person head bobbing > off.

  3. First-person third-person cover > ON.

  4. First-person vehicle hood > off. 

And Now, exit GTA V and Make sure the game isn’t running and is completely closed, and now we can move on to the next step.

Step 3 : Install the GTA 5 VR Mod

Now, GTA 5 in VR is ready, and we just need to download the mod itself, you can download the GTA 5 VR Mod here. The download file will be a .rar file.

Once downloaded, copy the GTA 5 VR mod RAR file and navigate to your GTA installation folder, which is generally under C program files x86 steam steamapps common Grand Theft Auto 5 and paste it into the main folder.

GTA V VR

Now you simply need to click on the .RAR file and select unpack here using WinRAR and go to GTA 5 in your Steam library, and right-click > select properties and ensure in the properties that use desktop game-theatre while steamvr is active is “unchecked”.

Now navigate to your GTA installation folder where we unpacked the mod previously and double-click on the real config.bat file and select high, medium or low settings based on your pc specs.

Step 4 : Other Additional Settings

Now, all we need to do is ensure that windows has your VR headset selected as the default audio source and launch oculus if you’re using an Oculus device if not just go to start steamvr and we’re ready to play GTA 5 VR.

GTA 5 VR

Finally before you play GTA V VR I’d recommend using a wireless gamepad such as the Xbox 1s controller wireless controller or of course you can use a keyboard and mouse if you wish.

How to Play GTA 5 VR on Oculus Quest

First, connect your Oculus link cable and if you don’t know anything about oculus link, then click here. This oculus link guide will show you how to use Steam VR on Oculus Quest

Also, you don’t need any Oculus link cable to use Oculus link feature, you can use your Quest Charging cable as Oculus link cable.

If you have read that guide, Open Virtual Desktop and then Open Steam > Open GTA 5. Now, you can experience GTA 5 VR with Oculus Quest via Oculus link

So that was it. That is how you can play GTA 5 in VR, which I think is super duper easy.

The GTA 5 Mod installation is itself so much easier. I know many GTA 5 and VR fans were waiting for TRUE VR mod support for GTA, and now, you finally can.

So, I hope you all understand it easily and quickly because of the illustrated images. If you have any suggestions on what topic we should write on, then the comments section of VR Marvelites is always open for the VR Army!

    • I think you didn’t follow the guide correctly. I highly encourage you to read the step by step GTA 5 VR one more time as there are slides of images. Means, I think one or two images have been not shown to you. If you are viewing this from your computer, then I suggest you see this page on your mobile. Also, make sure you have enough ram and GPU compatibility to run GTA 5 in VR as this can be an issue regarding camera and input issue. I highly suggest you to check all the camera settings that I mentioned in the post. And if that doesn’t work, please follow the guide fully one more time with antivirus off as some antivirus can corrupt some files. I hope this reply will help you and if not please reply to this comment. Cheers VR Army!

  1. I installed this, but I’m having this problem: the game is overlaid in 2D on top of my VR game in the headset. So I can barely see anything. Any recommendations on how to fix this? And I have to run it in Safe mode to get it to work. Same thing, using Oculus Quest and Samsung Odyssey+. I have an RTX-2080 system, i9-9900k, 32GB RAM, etc., so you’d think it would run fine. What’s the trick to getting this to work?
