    If you ignore the code section at the beginning of the C++ Shooter tutorial, there is an Blueprint animation explanation at the bottom:

    https://wiki.unrealengine.com/First_...2B%2B_Tutorial

    You may want to look into that C++ tutorial as an idea for how you would add a weapon with Blueprints as well.

    Here is a video on adding a custom weapon to Shootergame (No code involved) as an example of how you would add your own to a new Character BP:

    Also, there is already a discussion about custom weapons going on in this thread: https://forums.unrealengine.com/show...=custom+weapon

    Let me know if any of this helps or if you have any specific questions.

        Make a "Try Get Pawn Owner" node, then you can drag from that "Return Value" and "Cast To" your BP that is your character. Here is an example where I get "Is Using" from a "MyCharacter" blueprint

        I don't have a nice selection of tutorials off hand for that, but here are the basics:
