Destructibles Content Examples

Overview of the samples provided in the Destructibles Content Examples.

On this page

As of engine version 4.18 APEX Destruction was moved to a plugin and this example content was removed from Content Examples. To view this content, you must download Unreal Engine version 4.17 or before and create a Content Examples project using the same engine version.

The Content Examples provided inside the Destructibles map showcase how destructible meshes can be created and used in Unreal Engine 4. Automatically generated and custom imported destructibles, fracturing controls with Support and Destruction Depth levels as well as how to fire events upon destruction like spawning particles or playing sounds are demonstrated in this map.
