I'm making an fps game and I have a gun which I want to have a laser sight (similar to this: https://imageshack.com/f/jxdscn2857sj)
I've tried to do this using the logic editor but I realised I would most likely need to use python. So basically, is there a way - like in Unity - to get a point by raycasting?

Here's an image of what I want: enter image description here

The hitPosition of a Ray sensor will give you the coordinate of were a ray hits an object.

To use it, add a Ray sensor to the object and connect it to a Python controller.

Logic editor

Create a text block and enter the following script to access the hitPosition.

import bge

controller = bge.logic.getCurrentController()
owner = controller.owner
ray = owner.sensors["Ray"]

#world coordinates of where ray hit object

Finally, enter the script name in the Python controller.
