Strafe Jumping


Im working on my first game, But i got a question. When i jump with my caracter he only moves forward, But i want to make it like, He will jump to the way you are looking at (Like Source games)

Video Example: CS:GO - Strafing & LongJump Tutorial (w/ custom map) - YouTube

(I use the First Person Blueprint)


The movement in the Counterstrike video you showed has two key elements:

  1. The character can redirect himself in the air, dependent on which way he is facing
  2. The character picks up speed whilst in the air

To achieve (1) you need to add ‘Air Control’ - which can be found under the CharacterMovement > Details > Character Movement Jumping / Falling Tab.

I’m afraid I’m not sure about (2) yet.

Hope this helped a little.
