Physics Volume Reference

Physics Volume reference details


There are some properties that are designated for this volume which can be adjusted from the Details panel.



Terminal Velocity

Determines the Terminal Velocity of Pawns using CharacterMovement when falling.


Determines which PhysicsVolume takes precedence if they overlap.

Fluid Friction

Determines the amount of friction applied by the volume as Pawns using CharacterMovement move through it. The higher this value, the harder it will feel to move through the volume.

Water Volume

Determines if the volume contains a fluid, like water.

Physics on Contact

Determines if the Actor is affected by the volume by touching it (by Default, an Actor must be inside the volume for it to affect them).

Welcome to the new Unreal Engine 4 Documentation site!

We're working on lots of new features including a feedback system so you can tell us how we are doing. It's not quite ready for use in the wild yet, so head over to the Documentation Feedback forum to tell us about this page or call out any issues you are encountering in the meantime.

We'll be sure to let you know when the new system is up and running.
