Using Timers

A How To Guide for Using Timers for Gameplay in Unreal Engine 4.

On this page

Timers in Unreal Engine 4 are a useful tool that can be used to perform an action once (or repeatedly) at specified intervals. Timers can be used to set actions to happen on a delay or over a period of time. For example, you may want to make the player invincible after obtaining a certain item and then revert after 10 seconds. Or, you may want to apply damage every second to a player that is standing in fire. Each of these scenarios can be accomplished with the use of Timers.

The link below in the Setup section will give you examples on How to Use Timers using Blueprints.

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.
