Adding arms & weapon to blank project !

Hello Friends !
i have done some animation for my game , with my arms and an M4A1 like idle & fire !
but i didn’t found any topic talking about adding the arms & weapons on a blank project !
i want to make it like in the shooter game demo , and in blueprint because i’m not on my top in the C++
Can you Give me he Help Plz :confused:

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

Hello and thanks for the quick replay :smiley: !
i’m blocked on one step , if please you can provide me the solution :

thanks
