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 make line trace weapon impact destructable meshes

Hey I'm new to unreal engine and was wondering if there is any way to make a line trace weapon impact destructable meshes (destory them). I've already managed to figure out a way to impact regular meshes like projectiles. Is there anyway to add force to the line trace weapon ?

Thanks to anyone that replies. I'll leave the a gif of my problem and a SCREENSHOT of my BLUEPRINTS

Hey AlexOptimal,

One way to do this is to use the Apply Radial Damage node on the destructible mesh after it is hit by your line trace. If you'd like a larger "explosion" of pieces, you can also add an impulse at the same time to cause the parts to fly around.

Let me know if you have any more questions regarding this setup.

Have a great day
