    This product contains a full Unreal Engine project folder, complete with Config files, Content files and .uproject file, which can be used as a template to create a new project.

This project consists in a single component and many other blueprints designed to be a basic melee combat system. Attack combos and sequences can be easily added. Works with both player and AI.

Ideal for martial art games that features a simple melee combat system, or for quick prototyping more complex systems.
