Meta Quest 2 is one of the most advanced all-in-one VR headsets that offer a virtual world experience in gameplay and watching videos. Though it’s a standalone VR headset, it can be used with PC and consoles. Now, if you’re encountering the BONELAB crashing on Meta Quest 2 VR headset while launching it, then you’re not alone.
Well, here we’ve shared some of the troubleshooting methods for you that should help to resolve the startup crashing issue with the game on your Meta Quest 2.
It’s quite unfortunate that even VR headsets are prone to crashing issues with video games with or without being connected to the PC.
Stress Level Zero has done good work with the release of BONELAB a new experimental physics action video game that offers a mysterious lab.
Here in the gameplay, you’ll find out weapons, enemies, challenges, and plenty of secrets inside the lab. Luckily, you can follow the workarounds below to easily fix such an issue on your Meta Quest 2.
Restart Meta Quest 2
If you’re having any kind of trouble with your Meta Quest 2 such as temporary glitches or lags or slow loading up issues then you should reboot the headset by following the steps below.
- Select Restart from the Power Menu.
- Your headset will turn off and then turn back on automatically.
If in case, you’re unable to restart your Oculus Quest 2 headset then you can follow the steps below:
- Press and hold the Power button on the headset for at least 10 seconds.
- It’ll turn off your headset > Now, wait for 30 seconds more.
- Then press and hold the Power button again until your headset turns back on.
- Once your headset is turned on or the boot logo appears, wait for the system to load.
Tweak in-game Graphics Settings
You can adjust the settings for the graphic performance of your Meta Quest 2 + Link from the Meta Quest app on your computer. By adjusting the graphic performance settings, you should be able to reduce game crashing issues on your VR headset. To do so:
- Open the Meta Quest app on your computer.
- Click on Devices on the left side of the app.
- Click on Quest 2 and Touch.
- Scroll down to Graphics Preferences.
- You can adjust your Refresh Rate and Render Resolution.
- Refresh Rate: The number of times your Meta Quest 2 screen updates with new images each second. You can set your refresh rate to 72 Hz, 80 Hz, or 90 Hz.
- Render Resolution: Adjusts the resolution that the app or game you’re using is being rendered. The maximum render resolution you can set is 5408 x 2736 pixels.
Keep in mind that while increasing your refresh rate and render resolution, these two options will result in improved visuals. However, these two adjustments could have a negative impact on overall performance.
Even with some of the newest and most powerful GPUs, maxing out values for the render resolution slider with a 90 Hz refresh rate may result in dropped or missing frames, which creates a less smooth in-VR experience.
Check for Quest OS Updates

Please Note: Your Meta Quest 2 or Meta Quest will not update automatically while turned off or in sleep mode.
