How can I spawn a widget on the location a actor is overlapping with a other one?

I cant seem to figure out how to great a widget that spawns when my actor overlaps with a other one. i want it to overlap and show for example: 100 points. and after 1 second that it will be removed. the widget will only spawn at a fixed location but the problem with that is I have actors walking around randomly. Can some pleas help me with this?

You have 2 options:

  • create a widget and have it update its position on Tick using the target actor’s location
  • Add a WidgetComponent and attach it to the target actor

and after 1 second that it will be removed

This could be done with a Delay node


  • if this is your widget:

  • on overlap the character can detect something, create a widget and feed it a relevant actor reference that should be tracked:
