is it legal to use blender 3d and ue4 to make a game and sell it for profit ?
thinking about creating all game assets in blender 3d (cars guns charecters houses and riggs things like that) and creat blueprints particle effects and the world map in ue4. but blender 3d is open sorce so im not sure if i can sell games for profit without making ue4 subject to open sorce.

"open source" is a programming term.
You could freely use Blender to make assets. You can't use Blender's source code for Your game (as example source code for importing .blend files, You have to use FBX file format)
Blender minifaq on license:
GPL, LGPL, BSD all are software licenses and cover only source code part.
If You're interested in this topic read more on: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/License_compatibility
Also, don't forget that You have to pay fees from revenue to Epic for using UE4 commercially.
