    I can shoot bullets from a gameobject on FPS but how do I detect a hot with an object?
    I shoot an object called "Wall" with a bullet but no hi gets detected?

    Code (csharp):
    1.  
    2.  
    3. void Update () {
    4.        
    5.         if (Input.GetKeyDown("c"))  
    6.         {
    7.           Debug.Log("c key was pressed");
    8.           Rigidbody mybullet;
    9.           mybullet = Instantiate(projectile, transform.position, transform.rotation) as Rigidbody;
    10.           mybullet.AddForce(transform.forward * 1000);
    11.         //  mybullet.AddForce(transform.up * 400);
    12.           Destroy(mybullet.gameObject,3);
    13.             _bullets2.Add(mybullet);
    14. .....
    15.  
    16.            
    17.  void OnCollisionEnter(Collision collision) {
    18.      
    19.    
    20.         if (collision.gameObject.name=="Wall")
    21.         {
    22.             Debug.Log("Hit wall2");
    23.         }
    24.        
    25.    }
    26.  
    27.

    I have tried continuous setting, slowing the bullet down but I am not registering any hit at all?

    The below code never gets triggered even though the bullet bounces off the wall and an enemy as a cube?

    void OnCollisionEnter(Collision collision)
    { Debug.Log("Hit "+collision.gameObject.name); }

    This also has no effect?
    I have no idea why no collision cant be detected.

    void OnTriggerEnter(Collider other) {
    Debug.Log("ihit=" + other.gameObject.name);

    }

    I could be wrong, but in my code i use....

    onCollisionEnter(collision : Collision)


    Instance, then class.

    You are wrong. :) He's using C#, in which case the syntax is correct.

    Do a Debug.Log(collision.gameObject.name) to see what is actually being registered. Should help to clear things up.

    He is using C# whereas your code is proper format for javascript.

    OnCollisionEnter won't get called because it needs to be in a script that's attached to your bullet, not your gun.

    But Jessica1986 is right - you shouldn't be spawning individual bullets (as it's very slow), you should be using a raycast to simulate the 'entire path' of the bullet in one go. Just cast a ray from the 'tip' of the gun, in the direction the gun is pointing, and see what you hit.

    Is there a bug with this collision event because I am getting nothing and my bullets bounce off the wall slowly.
    Nothing is being output? Both th wall and bullet have rigidbody and colliders.


    void OnCollisionEnter(Collision collision){

    Debug.Log("Hit "+collision.gameObject.name);

    I attached the collision code to the bullet prefab and it all works. Well done for picking this up:)

    Why use a raycast then?
    If I use raycast there are 2 types and which do I use and how do i use it?

    There are 4 types, but they all do ultimately the same thing. You'll want to use one of the ones that fills out a RaycastHit structure. You just call it with the ray you want to test, and if it returns true, you hit something - then check in the RaycastHit structure for the exact point hit (for impact effects) and the object that got hit. The examples on the docs page should get you started.
