Sidescrolle game - Fire weapon!!

Hello All,

I’ve recently jumped into some new stuff. I’m working on this sidescroller project. which is using the side-scroller template. I have managed to remove my custom blue character guy for a (test character from Maxiamo - swat guy) I also have a weapon while running (using a socket) My next goal would me to fire the weapon (like a laser beam gun blaster) How would I do this? Are there any tut on this. Many thanks
