This is the most comprehensive Unreal Engine tutorial series on the internet. You will create a shooter game complete with AAA quality gameplay mechanics. Learn the theory behind the gameplay mechanics of shooter games, then implement them in this beautiful game project. Topics covered are:

  • Character creation and movement
  • Input for PC and console controllers
  • Extensive use of Animation Blueprints (and Anim Instances, their C++ parents)
  • 1D and 2D Blendspaces
  • Strafing
  • Turn-in-place
  • Aim Offsets
  • Inverse Kinematics
  • Animation Curves
  • Character lean when running
  • Crouching (with dynamic capsule resizing)
  • Turn hips while running
  • Weapon fire with recoil animations
  • Reloading
  • Weapon blast and impact particles
  • Weapon beam particles (smoke trails)
  • Bullet shell eject particles
  • Sound effects
  • Blending animations per bone, by bool, and by enum – play one animation with one part of the body (running or crouching) while simultaneously playing another animation with another part of the body (reload, aim, or weapon fire)
  • Attach and equip different weapons (pistols, submachine guns, assault rifles)
  • Automatic and semi-automatic gunfire
  • Move different gun parts (the clip/magazine, and pistol slide) during animations
  • Camera zoom while aiming
