Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

How to get actor who shot projectile?

I have a weapon that fires a grenade, and I have a variable inside that blueprint that defines the explosion sound. How can I find the specific actor/blueprint that fired the projectile so I can get the specific sound in that blueprint and set the sound of the grenade to it?

Product Version: UE 4.10

Generally I'd define the the sound inside the abject that's using it. So if the grenade handles its own explosion the grenade would play the sound from it's OnExplode event.

If you have to define the sound in the weapon, add a variable to the grenade called Weapon and set the variables ExposeOnSpawn to true. In your weapon class, when you spawn the grenade with SpawnActorFromClass there'll be a pin on the spawn node for your weapon where you can set it to Self.
