Environment Query System Node Reference

Environment Query System Node Reference page.


An Environment Query is actually made up a number of different pieces. You must call an Environment Query from a Behavior Tree, and then the actual Environment Query will use its Generator, reference its Contexts, and use its Tests to give the Behavior Tree the highest weighted result.

Node Type



Produces the locations or Actors, referred to as Items, that will be actually tested and weighted.


Provides a frame of reference for the various Tests and Generators.


Establishes how the Environment Query decides which Item from the Generator is the best option.

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.
