I have a script which is from the fps tutorial on the unity website which allows you to shoot a bullet prefab, but what it dosent do is spawn my bullet prefab at the end of my gun, please can anyone help? For some reason I cant get the script to look correct on this question even with the code sample button so here is the link. http://download.unity3d.com/support/resources/files/FPS_Tutorial_1.pdf
Where does it spawn from instead?
in the centre of my screen

Make a small cube at the end of your gun and turn off the "Mesh Collider" component to make it invisible. Attach the fire script to that cube.
This is a round-about way of making an Empty, which can be made from the GameObject menu.
it spawns at the end of my gun now but it go downwards instead of firing straight please help.
dosent matter ive fixed it

oh!!! I think the axis-z of your spawn point is facing down. That's why the bullet is going downward. So try to rotate the spawnpoint to make the z-axis facing forward!
works now thanks
