    • 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 projectile to spawn on muzzle socket?

I am trying to create an fps type game in VR and I have an issue with the projectile spawning when I am shooting. I am trying to have the projectile fire from the muzzle socket on the weapon but whenever I test out the game and pull the trigger to shoot the projectile continues to spawn from the middle of my body instead of from the muzzle of the gun. I don't know if the problem is because the gun is paired to one of the motion controllers or not. I am using the first person template blueprints so that the game can be played without VR as well.

Product Version: UE 4.13

socket location

Make sure you're using [Get Socket Location] rather than one of the Relative location modes. Spawning a projectile is a separate class, not a child, so you want world coordinates.

That worked for the most part but I still have a problem with it. Even though my projectile is shooting from the muzzle socket but it isnt shooting straight out of my weapon and is shooting direclty left and right. I don't know what is causing it to do this. I apologize for my lack of knowledge I have never made an FPS much less a VR game before.
