**UE5 Alpha Update is available!**

If you are making a game in Unreal Engine there is a reasonable chance you may at some point feature projectile weapons. Irrespective of your games genre (first/third person, RTS, adventure, anything!) when a projectile impacts something at high speeds you will invariably need impact particle effects.

Version 1.0 has 96 impact particles (small/med/large impact FX for 31 materials) with more to come. There are also ricochet FX, destruction fragment FX and a bonus grenade launcher with shrapnel. Update 1.1 added muzzle flashes/smoke, explosive canister blueprints, shell casing FX, a frag grenade, impact sound FX, a new material and improvements to the existing FX.

To show the FX in action, I have included example pistol, assault rifle and large calibre ammunition blueprints, with an example material system and bullet ricochets. There is also a modified first person template with procedural recoil, basic weapon select/grenade launcher and a bullet time mode. Also included is a demo map with material examples ready to shoot. Of course, how you want to spawn the FX is entirely up to you - completely ignore the demo blueprints if you wish.
