What is the correct method for retrieving an actor's physical material via a line trace in blueprints?
The idea is to setup a headshot system were each body part has a different physical material. Through the same line trace used to determine the hit location I would also like to retrieve the physical material to determine which body part was hit. I've followed this tutorial on how to setup a physical material and assign it to a body part and I have set trace complex to true.

Have you considered using LineTraceForObjects? It contains Physics Material as an output - which seems to be what you are interested in.
Alternatively, Event Hit has the same output if you are performing a projectile collision check.
