The In Air Melee Use ability is a subclass of the Use ability and will allow the character to perform a melee attack while the character is in the air. The ability requires the character to have a melee weapon with a Melee Weapon component that plays an attack animation while the character is in the air.

  2. Add the In Air Melee Use ability.
  3. Add a new Melee Weapon component with a unique Action ID that should transition to the correct melee attack animation when the ability is active. As an example the Sword item has a Melee Weapon component with an Action ID of 2, and under the Use Animator Audio states it has an Item Substate Index of 10.
  4. Assign the Action ID specified within step 3 to the Action ID field of the In Air Melee Use ability.
