Oculus Quest 2 Random Controller Drift

CP2_Silu

Got my Quest a couple weeks ago and the left controller is drifting to the right, even though I have not been rough with it at all. Most likely dirtiness or a bug with the controller or headset. If its the latter, fix it in the next hardware update or at least address that you are working on a fix, Oculus. Here is everything I have tried so far:

Possible fixes on Oculus' end:
Add a controller recalibration system, similar to the Nintendo Switch's
Add dead zone options

SOLUTION TO CONTROLLER DRIFT!!!

Ok so I was able to fix this... If you are having this problem, all you need to do - and yes it's this simple - push down the joystick and blow into it. It's that easy. You may get lightheaded from it, but it worked for me. It will come back eventually, so when it does... just do it again. I have only had drift twice, so not many times have I had to do this solution, but so far for me, there IS a 100% success rate...

Cloud saves on games via facebook accounts could help people who need to factory reset and have no choice.

Multiple accounts on one Oculus Quest 2 would be nice. My brother is left handed and it can get annoying having to change the settings on some games because he plays with strange settings and is left-handed

This has been happening to me and just looking up "oculus quest 2 left controller drift" you will find a lot of others too. I'm going to try this later! Thank you so much

Thank you. I had already contacted Oculus support and contemplated buying a new controller but the good ole lowing it with air saved me so THANK YOU.

Really Oculus? Are you asking a video of the issue? This is the most common issue I’m seeing on forums. And by the way the blowing works.

You are a life saver, I was already getting frustrated and with the 6 weeks time to return the device for a design fault it’s just unbelievable.
