Technical Details

Works by doing line traces along the path of the bullet. On impact it does additional forward or back trace to check the thickness of the obstacle and passes through if it isn't too thick. Plugin also includes a "barrel" component that handles spawning bullet actors. Bullet actors have custom replication code that only synchronizes their locations and velocities on impact, the rest is locally predicted.
