Pawn not Firing Input Events

So to briefly explain my structure.
I am working on a VR Project and I have a base pawn with most of the controls. I am inheriting this base pawn on to a new pawn where my input events are not firing. The New pawn is assigned as the default pawn in the gamemode.

I have tried to posses the pawn but to no end.
Could anyone help me out with what could be going wrong ?
