Getting Started in VR
There are many options for VR headsets, but the simplest and cheapest way to get started is to buy the Meta Quest 2.
The product will walk you through the setup process. If you have any issues, folks in the Discord are always willing to help.
Most people are fine with the out-of-the-box comfort, but if you are having comfort issues, or just like to accessorize, here are some recommendations.
VR Cover Fitness Facial Interface. Vented and sweat-proof face pad.
Kiki Design Elite Strap: Replacement strap with improved comfort of the top and back of your head.
AMVR Controller Grips: Allows you to relax your hands while holding the Quest controllers.
Attend a Class in VRChat
Install VRChat on your Oculus Quest 2. You can find it here, or in the Most Popular category of the Oculus store. After starting VRChat, be sure to make a VRChat login, rather than using Oculus login (you can always fix this later if needed).
Here is a good VR Chat beginners guide:
