I’m looking forward to digging into Niagara eventually, once it’s more production-ready and in particular once I’m more comfortable with Cascade :slight_smile:

I made a video tutorial on how to make some very basic textures in Substance Designer. In the next video, I will explain my process in photoshop how I do some concept work and adding more stuff to those basic projectiles. Hopefully, you will find it useful.

How can you make projectile burst at random location and move to the target lile that?

I think you could try spawning at a random location by using the sphere spawn location module. And point attractor to direct particles and move to the desired location. Also, I think you could expose point attractor vector3 location and use it in BP if I’m not mistaken. Let me know if that makes sense for you or if you need more help.
