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"

(Solved) Weapon Pickup Failed

Hello everyone,

I am trying to Blueprint a weapon pickup system for my character when I was following this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B5eBAXbOZuM&feature=youtu.be

But as this version he shown was from UE 4.10 and for some reason, 4.13 doesn't work with this.

alt text

Can anyone help me with this issue? Please provide videos or screenshots for myself to better understand it.


Product Version: UE 4.13

The Problem is that you are trying to cast a component to an Actor (Pawn). Use other Actor instead and it should work fine.

Hi. Try changing the Overlapped Component to Other Actor and cast that to the pawn you're using, be it the base pawn or a custom one, and see if that works. I'm not sitting at a machine with UE4 installed at the moment, but that would be my first guess as to why you get a warning, since you are getting an actor component and are trying to cast that to an actor.
