Teleportation Issues

This article is designed to help you understand the teleportation mechanic and possibly verify you may have a hardware issue that could prevent it from working.
A few things to know to start off:
  • Teleportation works off of a "cool down". The further you go, the more "energy" is expended and the longer it takes to fill back up. You can see this on the back of your teleportation hand
  • In experimental free move teleportation is still active, but moved to the other stick
  • Important: When using free move you are also using the movement energy bar which will mean teleportation will not work until you stop and it has a chance to refill
  • To fully complete a teleport, players much lift their finger OFF of the stick as the trigger for the teleport is the capacitive sensor on the stick itself.
If you are unable to teleport at all, please try doing the thumbs up gesture in game, which requires removing your thumb from the top of the capacitive sensor (the same trigger for teleporting). If this does not work, it is likely you have a hardware issue and you should consult Oculus support for further instructions.
