I have a physics projectile which has an On Hit event. When the hit event fires, I wish to get the direction the projectile was traveling, but that has proved surprisingly difficult.
I can get the velocity of the projectile with the “get component velocity” node, however since the hit event has already happened, the projectile has now changed its velocity. I need the velocity, or direction, the moment before the hit event.
#1 are traces gotten with the get velocity node each tick. Note that I am not planning to use tick, least not in blueprints.
#2 are traces gotten with the velocity node after the on hit event.
I tried reversing the direction after On Hit, but as example B shows, it is far from accurate.
