I've created a Area2D node called "Bullet", and when i press the "Z" button, that node is called right into the Main Scene, and that was working really well.

The problem is, i want to set the Bullet position equals to my Position2D Node position (which belongs to the player node), and for some reason i don't know, that code i wrote doesn't work, what have i done wrong? Thanks is advance.

Shoot Function

if Input.is_action_just_pressed("Shoot"):
    var bullet = bPath.instance()
    bullet.position = $Position2D.global_position

Here's the Node hierachy:

Try this: bullet.position = $Position2D.position
It is the position with respect to the parent (Player).

Still not working, but thanks anyway

Perhaps the problem is in the Position2D node, cause when i use the Player's own position it works, like that:

bullet.position = position

But still, that's not what i want to do
