2D Sprites in the 3d Space

I am learning UE4 and it’s being great. Going through a number of books that I got on fanatical and I am having a good time with it. Maybe I will get to it eventually, but I am anxious to figure out how to make 2D sprites turn towards the player in fps type game. Like the original Doom. I have done a search and I found all sorts of instructions but I cant get it to work. It strikes that the instructions I am finding are way more complicated than need be. Or maybe I’m missing something. If there is an easy(ier) way to do this, and someone would fill me in I would be very appreciative. Thanks all.
