Proper way to handle bullet and magazines after eject
Is there a standard way to handle bullets and magazines that have been ejected?
For example... should a make a bullet an actor blueprint with projectile motion so i can spawn multiple when the gun is automatic?
And for magazines... how would i handle the ejected magazine.. i suppose most people just loop it back in so its reinserting the same magazine that they just ejected.. which i could handle that just by animating the bullet position in the clip by sliding them down i suppose when its ejected (if empty) and moving them back up before it comes back into view. but im setting up 3rd person/first person hybrid.. so.. no 2 arm rigs.. all the aiming and reloading will be visible to all clients.
so.. if i eject a mag... how and want it to sit on the ground for say 30 seconds before it despawns... how do i get a second magazine to spawn into the animation?
i dont really have to animate the bullet shells... they wont even really be there until the gun is ejected to thats fine.. but this magazine / clip thing has me stumped.
