ButtKicker Gamer 2 Review: Amazing Audio Haptics in VR!

Sound is a big part of immersion in VR, and adding a bass shaker to seated VR rigs is something we’ve always wanted to test. We’re impressed by the performance of the ButtKicker Gamer 2 tactile transducer and amplifier kit, which works seamlessly with cockpit games from racing to mech piloting to space combat games, and adds a tremendous amount of fun to VR experiences. It’s a highly-recommended upgrade to your VR setup!

  1. OK, I’m sold. I want one :-). I already have a sim racing rig (though not VR) and I’m lucky enough to be able to play using 5.1 speakers most of the time. I’ve been working out how I might add flight/space sim capability to it as well and Buttkicker would be an excellent extra. It would go well with my electronic drum kit too! I’ll start saving…

  2. Nice, I didn’t know they had something that can attach to office chairs. I’m slowly building my racing sim rig up. I might have to get one of these now…

    From what I’ve read up on, it seems like a nice middle ground is to have three buttkickers for sim racing. Two on either side of your bum to get an overall feel for the car, and another at your feet/pedals to feel what the tires are doing under braking and acceleration.
