Sprint 2 - Basic Locomotion and Sword Attack in Unity


This blog will outline the tasks that was undertaken in sprint 2 and what was used in order to achieve this. This sprint I decided to attempt basic locomotion and a basic sword attack . I didn't end up completing this task in the end due to running out of time and producing a few botched attempts. Throughout this sprint 2 ran into a couple of issues along the way, one of them being used to unreal engine.


  • Basic Locomotion:
    • This goal involved researching and implementing basic locomotion into the project.
  • Basic Sword Attack:
    • This goal involved researching and implementing a basic sword attack animation state in to the project.

  • Used to Unreal's UI

What we found out

During this sprint i found out that the animation state machines in unity are a bit confusing to setup, if you move straight from unreal. I also found out that are a few ways that you can approach animations in unity depending on the result that you require.
