Making a Pushback effect?

Asked by

I've been trying to make a block that pushes players back. I tried bodyforce on the player's torso, but its either too weak to move at all or way too strong, and when the player dies their torso flies away which is messy. How can i just create a brief pushback effect that pushes you a few studs?

Have you tried BodyThrust? woodengop 1134 — 8y

BodyThrust will have a similar problem; either the force is too weak or too strong. This is because the amount of friction the character model exerts upon the ground. Redbullusa 1580 — 8y

db = true
script.Parent.Touched:connect(function(hit)
    if hit.Parent:FindFirstChild("Torso") then
        if db then
            db = false
            local torso = hit.Parent.Torso
            torso.Velocity = (torso.CFrame.lookVector) * -100
            wait(2)
            db = true
        end
    end
end)

Brief Explanation: I am looking for a torso and then I am setting the Velocity of it. The lookVector is a unit vector that will point to where the CFrame of the part is facing. Since I want it to push backwards, I multiplied it by -100 to move it backwards. You many change the -100 to a higher or lower number.
