Third/First-Person Shooter Character Controller


I developed this character controller with a primary focus on enhancing my technical and system design skills within Unreal Engine 5. My aim was to create an engaging and enjoyable character controller featuring a variety of unique weapons for players to wield. Drawing inspiration from successful titles such as Tom Clancy's The Division and Grand Theft Auto V, I meticulously designed and implemented this controller to deliver a seamless and enjoyable gameplay experience.

Throughout this project, my overarching goal was to transform the initial concept into a fully functional system within the game engine. I conducted thorough research within the genre, evaluating existing controllers to discern what worked well and what could be improved. This iterative process allowed me to refine the design based on positive aspects from comparable controllers, ultimately seeing the project through to successful completion.
