How to make walls of water you can shoot projectiles through! [🟩]

If you have ever used water in any of your maps to block players, you might of came across the issue of the water also blocking projectiles from gadgets. Here’s a simple way to fix this:

Step One - Add your water! :ocean:

Can’t shoot through water when there is no water to shoot through. Make sure that the water is set as a Floor.

Step Two - Put barriers over the water! :orange_square:

Overlap between barriers is fine, as it is inevitable for water shapes that aren’t square or rectangle.

Step Three - Edit the settings! :gear:

Open the barrier up. Change these settings:
Active On Game Start > No
Visible In-Game > No
Active Scope > Player

Step Four - Activate the barrier! :arrow_up_small:

We don’t activate the barrier, then players can walk AND shoot through the water. We only want projectiles.

Place down a Lifecycle and Relay device. You don’t have to change any settings in them.

Wire the Lifecycle to the Relay.
Event Occurs > Trigger Relay

Now, wire the Relay to the Barrier.
Relay Trigger > Activate Barrier

Step Five - Test! :test_tube:

Grab a gadget and test your water barrier.

Have fun!
