How to make a Weapon Inventory

Hello.

I hadn’t so much success in my last post: https://forums.unrealengine.com/showthread.php?89848-Issue-with-Weapon-Inventory

So at this point i’m gonna ask you how to create a Weapon inventory for a Player in the game.

Let’s pretend we want to implement these weapons:
-Minigun
-Pistol
-Crick
-Crock
-Crack

So, I’d like to realize a system for EVERY PLAYER: everyone is gonna have his own weapons (once the player picks them up).

Every weapon has its own characteristics, such as:
-Name (e.g. “Minigun”)
-Damage (e.g. 5 per hit)
-Fire Rate (e.g. 2 seconds of delay between a shot to another)

Also, any weapon has its own PrimaryFire Animation, SecondaryFire Animation.

In “pure” C++ I made this “simply” creating a linked-list.
But in Unreal Engine, C++ is very dirty.

So I’m gonna do this with BluePrints.

Any help?

Anyone? Dudes…

To create an inventory of weapons in blueprints you can create a base weapon class and derive weapon blueprints from it e.g. pistol blueprint will be a child blueprint from parent base weapon. To create an inventory of weapons, create an array of base weapon where you want your inventory to be stored.

I hope this helps

I did tutorial about inventory for weapons - which is in GameInstance (main menu classes need those informations in my case)
