Reflect Script, believed to be caused by triggers not working

I was trying to make a reflect script for my sword weapon in my game so that when you right click and a bullet object is in a trigger it would change the bullet’s direction.

It’s not working because the bullets is not being registered as being within the trigger. I have no idea on how to fix this.

Its in the scene debug 2



I don’t see a bullet entity in your scene hierarchy.

To activate a trigger the other entity need to have a rigidbody and collision component. Personally I don’t use bullets with a rigidbody component, so my bullets are actually triggers.

oh i was using ur enemy script and it would spawn in and head towards the player

but i think it not having a rigidbody is the issue

The reason why I don’t use a rigidbody component on a bullet is because with a rigidbody component the bullet will push other dynamic rigidbodies away.

yeah i realize that now

do you have any ideas on how to do the reflect with the triggers?

Also be aware triggers are not a activated by static rigidbodies.

I’m not sure what is the best solution in your case. I can imagine you also can’t give the sword a kinematic rigidbody.

I’ll just see if doing a regular raycast could work, my only worry is that it would be too hard to hit the bullet

nvm i fixed it
