Lethal VR Launches Today on PS VR, 6 Tips for a High Score

Lethal VR is a virtual reality shooting experience where you step into the shoes of an FBI recruit.

One of the most unique aspects of Lethal VR is that, unlike more traditional games, it rewards real world physical skills above learning complex button layouts on a controller. For example, if you have quick hands and fast reflexes, you’ll have a fast quickdraw in Lethal VR; if you are accurate on the shooting range in real life, you’ll be an accurate shooter here; the more flexibility and stamina you have the better you will perform in certain challenges. The more you play the game, the more you will train and develop these real life physical skills.

To help get you started, here are some tips for having the most fun and getting some great scores:

1.) Get the most out of throwing weapons.
Really act out the throw. Throw with a flick of the wrist, letting go of the Move controller trigger at the point you would let go of an actual Knife. Always be aware that they will fly in the direction you are looking. The best way to score big with throwing weapons is to hit knife targets multiple times before they vanish, the more knives in a target the greater the potential score.

2.) Combine speed and accuracy.
It’s easy to get over excited. Try not to “spray and pray.” Stay calm and plan your shots. The best way to earn a Lethal rating is to combine fast multiple hits on a target in the highest scoring zones. But be aware of civilian targets and penalty targets on some rounds — hit one of them and your round will be over.

3.) Check out the bonus rounds.
Earn a rating in all 5 rounds in each difficulty level and you’ll unlock a Bonus Round. Here you’ll get to use some extraordinary weapons in some unusual scenarios. These are inspired by some of our all-time favorite weapons from the world of movies.

4.) Read the round descriptions.
Make sure that you pay attention to each of the round descriptions when you play a round for the first time. Each description contains valuable information that can make the difference between a good score and great one.

5.) Stay on top of your reload management.
In all the excitement it’s easy to forget how many shots you have fired — so don’t waste time pulling the trigger on an empty clip. Keep track of your ammo counter and use pauses in between targets to reload your weapon. Every round has a time bonus score that’s counting down as soon as the round begins, so wasting time reloading can be costly.

6.) Aim for bonus scores.
There are lots of different ways to get more score in a round. The best agents always go for these:

  • Hit every target in a round with a Bullseye to earn a Bullseye Bonus.
  • Hit every target in the head to earn a Killer Bonus.
  • Shoot or throw at high speed to earn the Quick Throw and Quick Fire bonus.
  • Go for multiple headshots and bullseyes in the same target for escalating bonus scores.
  • Shoot all headshots or bullseyes without missing to earn a Perfect Bonus. Try to hit them all twice or even three times each and you will earn a Double or Triple Perfect Bonus.

Combining these score bonuses in a single round is the key to getting some really big scores. These tips will help you get started towards getting some awesome scores and attaining your Lethal rating in every round.

    • Any chance there will be a demo available or way to test out comfort in VR prior to purchase? Excited by what the studio is up to between this and Dangerous Golf… and that unannounced racing game :)

      We are a tiny team and I’m afraid there are no plans for a demo in the foreseeable future.

    • What does the other Chris Roberts feel about this game?

  • Been hyped for this since it was first announced!

  • will the sharpshooter gun worked with this ?

  • Capricorn-58

    If anyone has a PSPro it looks great running on that too.

  • Video please! :) I’d love it if this had training scenarios like real police dept.’s use with their simulators. A lot of the initial VR games seem to be too basic so I hope to see more in depth games like R.I.G.S.
