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 knock back player pawn

I am trying to set up my player pawn to be knocked back away from an enemy when hit by that enemy. I cant seem to find anything online about this and the add impulse, add force, and launch character nodes dont seem to work with the pawn. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Product Version: UE 4.20

Add impulse is exactly what you need and does indeed work with pawn. You need to get the hit direction, multiple that by a negative float value that feeds into the add impulse node.

Lets see how you setup your blueprints to help more. Because it sounds like the issue is not the impulse but how you are triggering the impulse that is incorrect.
