Vader Immortal audio cuts out immediately when starting the first chapter

Level 2

Right when you spawn in the ship on the first mission, there’s a loud crackly explosion followed by silence. The game continues to be playable but with no audio. I’ve tried restarting my Quest 2 twice now to no avail. It seems this is not a new issue based on some googling.


I am using Bluetooth to connect to AirPods Max. I will try using the built in speakers next…


I’d be grateful for any tips. So far, my Quest 2 experience has been mildly disappointing.

Hey there, @Thelbane! We understand you have some concerns about the audio going out when using Bluetooth headphones. We'd be happy to clear some things up for you so you can have a better VR experience.


At this time, Bluetooth audio is not supported on either Quest or Quest 2 headsets. To learn what headphones are supported, please visit this support article. To discover what Bluetooth devices are supported with your headset, please check out this support article.


We know this may not be the answer you were hoping for, but we hope you find this information helpful. If you have anymore questions or concerns, just let us know.

I just bought my oculus 2 days ago and i am having the same problem, except i am using no external audio devices. When spawning on the ship, there is a loud bang, crackle, static and then nothing. The sound is no more. I am using the headset only and no extra devices. Is there a fix for this. It only occurs on this game at the exact same point every time.

Disconnecting Bluetooth audio fixed it for me, but I’m still not happy that I had to do this. I’m not sure what to suggest except to maybe try Bluetooth and see if you get a different result.

Hello BroFists! 


We understand you have just joined the family, and are already experiencing issues. This is not the experience we want you to have, so we will like to take over and turn this around for you! 


Let's work together on this down below: 


  • Un-installing & Re-installing the device:
    • We advise at this time to uninstall and then re-install the app on your headset. This process, in a way helps do a small refresh on your device. Just incase there is a glitch on the app. If this doesn't work then let's move on to the next step.
  • Restart your headset: 
  • To Restart your headset: Restarting your Meta Quest 2 | Meta Store 
  1. With your headset on and powered on, press and hold the power button on the right side of your headset until you see the Power off screen.
  2. Select Restart. Your headset will turn off and then turn back on.
  • If you're unable to restart your headset: 
  1. Press and hold the power button for at least 10 seconds. This will manually turn off your headset. 
  2. Wait 30 seconds.
    1. Press and hold the power button until your headset turn backs on. [ If this issue still persist then we can move on to perform a Factory Reset. ] 
  • Factory Reset: 
  • Please make sure to have 'Oculus Cloud Enabled' on your device. To verify this click here: Oculus Cloud Backup | Meta Store
  • To perform a factory reset using your phone:
  1. Open the Oculus app on your phone.

  3. Use the volume buttons on your headset to highlight Factory Reset and press the power button.
