Lethal Company VR Mod: The Ultimate Virtual Experience

Lethal Company is a terrifying horror game as it is that gives people nightmares. Hence, modders decided to make a VR Mod to make it even more scary


Lethal Company is a very popular co-op survival indie horror game that was published on October 24, 2023, by the developer, Zeekeerss and the game is currently in early access. The game is set in a post-apocalyptic and retrofuturistic dystopian world. An anonymous corporate organization named the “Company” hires players on a contract to explore abandoned and industrialized moons to collect scraps.

The main objective of all the Company’s employees is to collect the scraps and meet a profit quota every 3 days by selling them to the Company Representative, Jeb. While doing all of this, players also have to come back alive because there are a lot of deadly creatures they have to face during their adventures on the moons.

As the game was created by an indie developer, it is pretty normal that the game was only made for PC. The game is also in early access as mentioned before, so it is not available on any other consoles or devices. For this reason, modders took it upon themselves to come up with a VR Mod made specifically for the game. Hence, here is everything you need to know about the Lethal Company VR Mod.

The VR mod is a mod developed by the user DaXcess on Thunderstore, the official website for Lethal Company mods. As said by the developer of the mod, it is a mod created to provide players with an immersive virtual reality experience that was not previously available to experience the horrors within the game. It took the developer months of working to create the mod with Unity’s OpenXR plugin which supports all types of VR headsets. The mod adds full 6DOF VR support which includes hand movement and motion-based controls, how cool is that?

Other than that, the mod is also compatible with non-VR players in the lobby and vanilla lobbies, i.e., lobbies with no additional mods in it as well. The mod is also fully configurable and the developer even recommends players to do it because Lethal Company is a Unity HDRP game which makes it less optimal as it is. As for the controls of the game in VR, they are pretty basic with the joystick buttons being used for main functions and ray interactors for the main menu and Terminal controls.

The mod adds a few small changes to the game including being able to shake the spray can physically instead of with a button and swinging the shovel to hit entities in the game (including crewmates).

How to get the VR mod

Unfortunately, the VR mod is not a single mod so you have to go through a simple process with a few additional steps included to install the mod into the game. To install the mod, you need to install 2 different mods including the main VR mod. However, it is truly worth it because who doesn’t want the creatures to attack them in virtual reality and then have them haunt them in their dreams at night, right? Hence, here is the full process you need to follow to install the VR mod in Lethal Company:

Installing BepinExPack

Here is how to install the BepinExPack file, which is a framework file that will help players use the mod properly:

  • Step 1: Go to the BepinExPack page and click on the “Manual Download” option.
  • Step 2: Complete the download and then extract all the contents of the .rar or .zip file into the Lethal Company folder in Steam on your C Drive. You can easily do so by using the following location:
    • C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Lethal Company

Once you’re done installing the BepinExPack file, you need to install the second file, the mod file which will allow players to have the VR support in the game, as long as they have the proper version of the mod installed.

Installing VR mod

Here is how to install the VR mod file:

  • Step 1: Go to the VR mod page and click on the “Manual Download” option.
  • Step 2: Complete the download and then extract all the contents of the .rar or .zip file into the Lethal Company folder in Steam on your C Drive. You can easily do so by using the following location:
    • C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Lethal Company
  • Step 3: When or if a dialog box pops up and your system prompt asks you to replace certain files in the folder, agree to all of them.

With that last step, you’re done installing the VR mod into your game! It's fairly easy to do despite having additional steps, isn’t it? Now, you have a completely different perspective to play the game and experience all the horrors firsthand. It is really fun collecting scraps while running from monsters like the Thumper and in general it just makes the gameplay a lot more immersive.

Though, one thing to note is that, this mod is a new mod so it is quite normal for players to experience bugs in the game while using the mod. Also, make sure to get the latest updated version of the mod to ensure that it works properly. The developers are working and making updates to the mod every day, so appreciate the effort!

As for using the mod, there are no extra steps required to get it working other than, of course, restarting the game’s client and making sure that your game is working with the mod in it. You want to make sure to configure the game as needed to optimize the performance of your individual VR headset. Otherwise, if you don’t optimize the settings for your setup, you won’t be able to have smooth gameplay and it will affect your FPS alongside other features in the game.

Make sure to check out the mod’s description on the official page on Thunderstore’s website for more specific details on settings and configuration along with their discord server link for other support if you face other problems with the mod and need it!
