add objects to character


I d like to add a flashlight to my character, It’s a first person game and I can delete the skeletal mesh if needed,

How to create animation assets otherwidse? can’t find tutorialson it.

Is that possible to make an animation only with the flashlight to bring it to my fov and unequip it?

Can’t find existing assets for it. Ive got a night vision camera hud ready but no animation for it too, if you’ve got any idea?
