Unreal Engine Asset – The Targeting System v4.25

Complete solution for customized, directional targeting in UE4.

Designed from the ground up for ease of use, all of its functionality is detailed in a single, plug and play component.

It uses the AI Perception System to perceive targets, and sorts the targets onto 3 categories:

the most ideal actor to target immediately;
actors to the left of the targeted actor;
and actors to the right of the targeted actor;

thus enabling you to switch targets clockwise and anti-clockwise: to the left and right.

There are several options for customization available to the user and exposed on the instance of the component for easy, quick prototyping.
