Using a Radial Force Actor, you can apply a Constant Force (listed as Force Strength in the editor) or an Impulse. Impulses need to be fired from a Blueprint, and apply their entire force in only one frame, as compared to every frame from a Constant Force. In the content example, only a Constant Force is being applied.

This force is applied to everything that simulates physics.

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.
