Collision and hit detection will be covered, determining when attacks hit or miss. You’ll also learn how to create a hit reaction system, controlling how characters react when they are hit, such as staggering or being knocked back.

You’ll also learn how to create your own targeting system, allowing players to switch targets during combat. The course will cover implementing applying and receiving damage, including different damage types and how they affect characters. Additionally, you’ll learn how to add visual effects to the combat system, such as particles and animations, to make the combat more visually appealing.
