How do I draw text on the game hud [4.13]

Hey! Im new to unreal and I wanted to draw a text on my game hud. I heard that you can do it with something called DrawText on blueprints but I tried it and it didn’t work. So, is there an easier way to draw text on the screen? And how do I do it? Please tell me or link me to a video tutorial on youtube.


If you want a text to appear on the screen, you can create an animation on your HUD. In the HUD designer part, bottom left, you can create animations with a widget on the Hud. The animation can be setting opacity from 0 to 1 over a span of one second.

That is one way. Hope it helps!

Making a UMG User Widget is definitely your best bet.

Thanks for the answers but I already fixed it! I was using the Event BeginPlay and not Event Receive Draw HUD
